Things happen,  and you are right about circuit breakers.  I've never built a car without one.

Larry, sorry for the unfortunate mistake with the 32, but glad you could demonstrate the importance of some sort of circuit protection on these vehicles, esp ones with remote mounted batteries with long power cable runs. I put a circuit breaker on mine.

The horn that came with the car sounded too generic and American,  and this is a sports car, so...

The half shafts came from The Driveshaft Shop.

Many guys buy aftermarket T-Bird half shafts, disassemble them and then re-assemble using the shorter inner shaft. But you have to know how to rebuild half shafts to be successful. There are some tricks to taking them apart.

Ben, no special tools for the metal work. Just some 2x4's, a hammer, my workbench and a vise.

I’m pleased to report that I got my engine running with the new Holley EFI system installed and it solved my problem. After some tuning, it’s running great. All it took was more money.

I decided to go ahead and remove the differential and have it rebuilt.  I was becoming increasingly worried it might fail.  It wasn’t as difficult to remove as I thought it might be.  The shop will let me know next week the extent of the damage but they believe there’s definitely something wrong inside and will probably need new gears.  The half shafts have seen better days as well.  Considering the money Hurricane charged for the IRS option, you’d think they would have put in a rebuilt differential.  I’ve been looking for replacement half shafts but can’t find any the same length. I’m thinking they might be custom units since they’re 3” shorter than the Thunderbird half shafts the differential came from. I’m wondering if anyone out there know about replacement units or if mine can be rebuilt? I’m at a loss right now. Thanks.

Still waiting on my painter to take my car some day so in the mean time, just driving the hell out of it. Another trip to the Blue Ridge and did another section of it. This was part of a 265 mile ride this past Saturday.
