March 2008

Things have been quiet for a few months now, Lots of things haven't helped.
We purchased another car during Xmas & New Year, and I spent some weekends preparing the Toyota for sale, then Valentines day was closely followed by mothers day. And before I knew it, it was March.

In the mean time I have been working on the dash, and have bought a fuel pressure regulator to go with the new fuel pump. The Weber's need a supply pressure of only 4 psi, so this will reduce the pumps output to this.

As the snow melts, it has allowed me to make a little more progress with the dash, sanded off the textured finish

Then gave it a coat of primer, so I can see exactly where needs filled, turns out to be quite a few pinholes that will need stopper.

After about 1 hour sanding the dash down by hand, its starting to look a bit smoother. Weather permitting, tomorrow, will allow me to get another coat of hi-build primer on and the few remaining dips filled.

As March draws to a close a final sunny day allowed me to fabricate a bracket to hold the Megajolt pickup
