Ha! It can't come soon enough. But... I have a ton of things to do still. Haven't really started on the MegaSquirt setup yet. I've bought a few components but am miles away from having a running motor.

The good news is I finally feel like I can see a light at the end of the tunnel. The project is no longer a big question mark. I can list the major things that need to be done.
Build a roll bar - working on that
Make an interior engine cover
Install the doors
Make a panel to replace the tailgate
Build out the electrical system for the 'chassis' stuff
Paint the bed, install fender flares
Install the passenger seat - working on that
Select and install instruments
Build out the fuel injection system
Create and tune the fuel and ignition maps
Exhaust system
...plus all the endless details...

Yeah, the old list was shorter though:

1. Do Everything
2. Go Racing

Looking good!
Less List Stuff....and geez the rear (bed area) of that thing is short.


if I may offer a word of caution on the Aluminum Dryer vent tubing and bits.. with vibration and normal engine / vehicle forces they do tend to vibrate and break - lil' bits of metal can get into that intake path... Wonder How I know?? I still have that cheap ratty stuff on my ruster... Need to re engineer something else . I might suggest some 4" flexible tubing from rocker or the like for your wood shop dust collector..

Yeah, I'm not real confident in the dryer vent so figured I'd have to replace it with something more robust at some point.

The bed is short but the only hauling it's going to do is hauling ass! :o

It looks really short but the 4-wheel footprint is nearly identical to a C4 Corvette. Only it will be nearly 1000 pounds lighter.
