    I hope you got that white one @ayilar from the West coast on CL.

    Well, I'm back home.

    Like you may remember, I had to do some fiberglass work. The too snug fan shroud is still in progress like getting the skirts back on.

    Patrick from Belgium sold these wheel covers and they arrived while I was at my grandparents (Doc, don't even think about another deal:p).

    I just noticed that no pics from three weeks back are posted yet. The top photo is taken at one of the local gas stations, which was closed for a while the asphalt and pumps were replaced.

    This is the same, to which I almost hit after bringing Impster home.

    I went for a nice Sunday spin. At first Impster´s gas tank had to be refueled and that was quite a joke. I supported myself on the rear bumper while nobody arrived at the lane I was fueling up, every one went to wait to get at the other pumps.

    Also nice were other people´s reactions, like what they did when a hood as long as the bimmer pulled next to it at traffic lights.:lol:

    At first I went en route on my own, but later gave mom a ride as her birthday surprise.

    Nice!

    PS: I see that you really like poles. Is Impster so long that one can't take a picture of the car without a pole of some sort? :p

    It's a disease that I always find every pole. Like if I were in an almost empty parking lot, I'd park Impster next to a pole. Fortunately the distance between metal and metal is from one inch to two feet.:realcrazy::eek:

    I respectfully submit that the UART are to be cherished and kept pristine on all '73s for when their owners feel like derbying them :D

    OK, now may be a good time for me to go and hide from all the :realcrazy:, :wtf:, :mad:, :mob: and :elmer:that my heretic sense of "humor" is bound to bring about... :eek:

    :drama:

    I´d make elderly people stare at me by doing that, though it wouldn´t be too awkward as when I either arrive or leave an event, everybody nearby turns to look at the effing kid driving the
    ``heck of a luxo barge``.

    Cops don´t really care what I do.

    I drove at the Aviation Museum to show a real Fuselage. Next: Vantaa cruising.

    Not too good pictures, but it´s the handcraftsmanship, which does count.

    The fender skirt brackets are made of two pieces of polycarbonate, which were glued together before finishing the shape by grinding. I thought that I´d get the skirts back on before the next event, but we´ll see...

    Then there´s the radiator shroud with some more fiberglass and resin.

    To be continued.

    Today we performed an "a$$ high, spin tires" test, which revealed that Impster has gotten a Sure-Grip at some point along the years.

    The fiberglass work progressed as well and it looks like I'll get to install the skirts back after some trimming and reinstalling the trim.

    I visited Stirwell to get white paint of the correct shade.

    Now the back up lamps work as they should. The wires were attached in an improper order, so the right buck up lamp was functioning as the license plate lamp.

    Last Wednesday I was at the Chatter Court, where also one of my friends arrived in his 74 Newport Custom, so we decided to switch the batteries. He has the big Akuma whereas I´ve got this, which does fit a lot better.

    The first pair of U-bolts is now replaced with band clamps.
