    But unless a miracle happens in the next 4 weeks, looks like I'm bringing the Daytona this year. I just don't think I have enough time to finish the Scamp...

    That's too bad, i was looking forward to checking out your upgrade.
    But i know how it goes.
    I'm stressing too, knowing I'm not going to get through my to-do list.

    Sorry to hear that, but happy you're still planning on going.
    I don't feel that finishing a project like that in a thrash to get to an impending event is ever a good idea anyway. Invariably, you end up making compromises that you end up regretting.

    Yeah, kind of what I'm thinking as well. The Scamp will be a riot once finished, but I certainly don't want to half-@ss something and wind up stranded on the side of the road. Good news is, SDAC is only about 3 hours from my place this year...
    The Daytona is definitely a great alternative. It is more comfortable on a long drive than the Scamp, and if it's hot, it does have A/C...

    About ready to pull the trans and get everything staged to install the 555. Found the driver's side tube control arm spherical rod ends are bad, play side to side and front to back. Wasn't expecting that, but glad I saw it and ordered new ones. Also pulled the power steering pump and going to either loop the line or just plug it. Been manual for a while, so no big deal. Probably not great to run it with a PS rack and not actually run the pump, but I plan to make sure there is fluid in it and just seal it up. Turbo was cool to see out of the car, really like how the car was done. Thought it would be hard to get to everything, but all in all it was easy to work on. Should have the radiator done this week, so lots happening with the car just before the show!
