Close up of side louvers. Still deciding if I leave them raw, powder coat or anodize them.

Entry for electrical at the trunk tub. I decided to cut a square opening and use a simple square electrical cover to cover it. I figured it would be a more universal thickness for grommets.

Still slow moving for me, but today was kind of exciting. I picked up a cheap set of wheels and tires for temporary use until I'm ready to bite the built and order Halibrands, and today I set the chassis on the ground. First time it rolled.
Other than that I've messed with a lot of little things. Got the oil pan, pulleys, and brackets cleaned/blasted and ready for paint. Put my heat shield on the footboxes. Cleaned up some of the cutouts in the trunk tub and did my cutout for the wiring to come in.
Last week I dropped the crank into the block, got the pistons off the rods and got the valves ground. Hopefully Monday I'll put the new pistons on the rods and grind the valve seats, then I can put more of the engine together. My cam from summit got pushed to Oct. 5th as of now so that's going to slow things down.

After working with the side vents, finally removed my side pipes from the boxes and mocked the up. Pretty straight forward and no surprises other than a bung I won't be using and need a plug for it. I increased the flange holes to 5/16 and will use 1/4" bolts to fasten them.

Time for our weekly post or at least it seems that is what it is...Anyhow, I planned on using the side vent louvers from Vraptor speedworks, and the openings that were precut from Hurricane were not exactly correct. Driver side had a bad angle and the passenger side was cut long. I don't do fiberglass and so I made the best of it and optimized the opening for these new louvers. I scribed new outlines for them and proceeded to cut a rough opening to accommodate the new vents. Louvers are easily formed and then a center brace is installed that lock them in place, will have a friend put a tig weld tack on the back side at each end on the center brace.
Openings still need some radiusing in the corners and a bit more clearance. What I like is the blade edge will be at the outside surface of the opening when its done.. Will be powder coated later. I should get a full pic of them assembled tomorrow.

Does anyone else have an engine on order with Craft Performance Engines?  I received some parts back from them yesterday that I originally sent to them to install on my engine.  No explanation provided.  Now they aren't answering their phone.  Makes me think something is going on.  Plus they're still holding my deposit.  Just wondering if anyone has heard anything.  Thanks.

Lance got off FB and all social last summer. Too much political bs, he said.   And they were having major supply chain challenges during the pandy, like everyone else.  He is usually at the Texas Cobra Club spring meet.   I just sent him a personal text msg checking in, havent heard back yet.

It seems to be a 50/50 mix good/bad. I know a few other builders who are in the same boat. Lance is no longer on FB not it seems. Build related issues. This is where honesty and communication prevail. That said I do hope things work out for the best! And please keep us updated.
