Work-time coming soon! UPDATED!

By Crazyfast79TA

Filed under: 1979 Pontiac Trans Am (Blackbird)

I didn't really know when I'd have a chance to work on my Bandit, but I've been given the chance. My boss is going to Indy to visit his brother between Christmas and New Years. He's closing the shop for that week. I'm going to have that week to work on my car, maybe even both of them as long as I can do it without a whole lot of cash. I'm going to try to have a work area cleared out in the garage so I can move around in there and get something done. I'm starting to get a little worked up about it now. I've got the firewood cut for the stove so it can be warm in there. I've got my shop-lights hung, so it's lit up now. I can pull the engine back out and getn the mounts where they belong and get the fuel line bent and installed. I will then be able to hook up the new gauges. After the engine is sitting where it's supposed to sit, I can work on getting the aircleaner to fit so I can hook the shaker back up. I did open it up to be functional afterall! I'll post more as things come together!

UPDATE: Ends up we (at least the 2 of us on the paint and body crew) might be working at least a partial work schedule, but that hasn't been confirmed yet. We'll see before this week is over.

UPDATE to the UPDATE: Still no confirmation on working or not, but I'll be able to get out there in the evenings (maybe). I'm not going to let it frustrate me too much. It has sat since '06! I'll get it ready before the weather is good enough to take back out.
