    I just finished pressure washing the frame and engine. Most of the grease did not clean up off of the engine after hosing it down with a hot water pressure washer.
    I sprayed some industrial-grade engine Degreaser on it and let it sit 15 minutes per the directions.
    At least I can paint the frame tomorrow.

    So...my wrenching buddy is moving away the 16th! He has always been a terrific help and source of ideas and a great guy who enjoys working on old cars. Gonna be sad to see him go! Across the state, so idk how much wrench time we will have together :cry:
    He is the only friend I have with any mechanical aptitude at all.
    So, plan change as of right now....change all the fluids in the secondary, or blue FC, get it running and driving, and then go from there. I can putz around on, and take time on the red one, or naked chassis, as time permits.


    Updates to follow:cry::cry::cry:

    started the mounting of the master cylinder bracket. this will turn to this. the bracket and MC idea came courtesy of the FC connection website. a nice website. not in depth helpful, but its enough to get by with some collective images and some tech projects.
