Watching for info ,..n news but its a bit thin on here at the moment.....

Project Effy is kinda bedded down now, a few little details to catch up n finish off.....
About to start on a birthday up grade for Bertha shortly....
I had the first exterior part planned for last week......before Muscle on the Murray....
She was to have new Charcoal Gen2 style stripes done ,...and my long planned Gen 2 mirrors painted.....

Sadly it all went pear shaped, Signwriter got swamped ,..so stripes got pushed back to this week...., n spraypainter got busy n mirrors didnt get painted
Next week hopefully....

Maybe if everyone made an effor t to post something during the week or by Thursday / Friday n geta bit of interest rolling here again....

BTW,...is there an easy way of posting more than just 4 or 5 pics at a time ???

I like your theory

Installing headlight relays on my 68 Camaro in the hope it will give something better than 2 x hurricane lanterns.
Hopefully I can get it finished on the weekend (forgot how well I hid the wiring)

Well mine started coming apart last week. Lack of driving then some spirited driving: Seals leaked on pan, front and rear, then t did a head gasket. I've also had one cylinder with busted rings for a while. So I thought, OK, time to come out and get freshened up. But to do that I have to pull everything inc the trans, as it's so big in there I can't even get my fingers between the firewall and block to unbolt the engine. Should be fully out next week.

nah, 2 circuit carb, no more venting to atmosphere and air con. Girls are old enough now I don't need car seats in it (never planned for any) and they are asking that we take it out for family stuff not just me on my own, so nothing more than just less eye burning oily smells and a bit of air con

Still Dom or are you going to 4150? Whose carb?

OT, took mine out today after some carb adjustments and it's best it's ever been, still not perfect but I feel like I'm closing in on it

Quick fuel 1150 dominator. On its way from US as we speak. Glad you got yours heading in right direction. I just read your post on YB. It’s like you almost had to change everything.
