    My Kenny Brown parts finally showed! 4 months. Waiting for rear wheel studs, fire system, that’s it!Made a little progress on aero, on dash, on kill switch wiring. My tig machine blew up and I just got it back. Tonight is welding aluminum for fender/hood vents. This weekend is bolting on the...

    All fun and games unless something vibrates loose. Onto the lower dash. ( kill switch, switch panel, tablet tied into race capture pro ). Oil press/temp, water temp/volt, fuel pressure, wideband. And a nice flat spot for sponsor logo at the glove box location, that will show on video like I am...

    Lost a seat bolt. After 20 minutes of searching and fishing with a magnet I give up. Off to the nut and bolt store tomorrow, need some hardware for the dash anyways. seat is in, window net is done. First time I used a spring loaded window net, I sure like it. Might convert one of my other cars...

    3.5 months since my order for a Kenny brown grip kit front and rear and still no delivery date. I’m not very happy……patience has ran out let’s say….

    My big wang(S) arrived. One is for the s197. Got all 3 wicker bill sizes so if I need to tune things I have options. Fake wing comes off this weekend so my car cover fits. Friend will be making me a custom car cover soon. Phase 3 is weight reduction and the windows will come out when I get to...

    Wheels mounted. Interior painted. lots of dash fab work this weekend and then I move to all the aero work planned.

    Not sure I want the roll bar mirror or if I will use factory mirror. It’s installed as I want to make sure that a helmet hanger and steering wheel hanger don’t interfere. I’m tired of my helmet rolling on floor. And I plan a cool shirt box in the passenger seat.

    Plugs changed. That was a chore. so seat base that bolts to floor is 14 inch and seat is 16.5. I also want to slide seat more towards center of car. So out comes the plasma cutter ! I will make a flat plate to bolt to sliders and then bolt the seat to that plate. The seat bolster is touching the...

    This stuff is waiting to be installed. Wing, brakes, Kenny brown suspension, paint supplies make up the other piles ! Wife is the least happy about this pile in out living room.

    Please stand buy as I wait for another extraction tool. The threads on the pusher body failed on plug 5. I ordered a second tool. One for me and one to replace the broken one I borrowed. Why did I think I could slap a car together in a reasonable amount of time :(
  11. S197 Team Old Goats

    Yes , thanks. I have extracted 4. Blown out the holes. I think one small piece of porcelain is in one cylinder and maybe a little material from the ground strap. Other than that I have plugs out as expected. Just not sure how critical it is to get every bit out from piston tops. I’ve seen posts...

    Ok. One side done. I will make sure I have all 8 electrodes in my hands. These look like the ground strap breaks from pushing the porcelain down OR a piece of the ground strap ( small piece ) broke off from each. One was missing a piece of porcelain. I will go borrow a borescope to see what’s...

    Feels like I set a record. 0 for 8
  14. S197 Team Old Goats

    Well, I usually don’t swear, today will be different. Soaked the plugs in penetrant for 2 days. First one broke, the other three in the head don’t budge. is my new plug a one piece design so I won’t have this problem again? One of my mechanic friend told me to just pull the heads but that seems...
  15. Tire size question

    They don’t bring the 300 into Canada. But according to Zestino the 280 fits the 11 inch wheel. The 300 fits 12 and the 325 the 13. the 280 is 20mm less tread width than the Hoosier r7 315 tire. If they did bring it in I would try it though !car has ran terribly since I pulled it from storage...
