With the Boss all loaded up, I headed down to Greensboro, NC to meet my bro, have some fun and get ready for the next stage.
Arrived at Whitby Motorcars and got the Boss unloaded.
Then decided to fire it up with open headers just to get it the short distance into the shop. Cant have a bunch of old guys trying to push the thing around. And oh yeah… that 427W sounds really, really good with open headers.
While we were there, got to hang out with Jeff for a bit and talk cars. He eventually worked us towards the back room and finally got to see my body shell again. Its the one in the middle that still has a lot of red on it.
Another 4-6 weeks and I’ll be headed down to bring the Boss 427 back home. Wont be much more to tell you in the next few weeks, but any updates I get, I will be sure to post up. Once again, as usual, if you’re still sticking with me… thanks for following.
After spending about 6 hours working on the roll bars, I’ve called it quits. I sent out a lot of emails and tried some contacts to get these bars polished… some responded, some didn’t, and those that did were +$500. Put it on the back burner.
Have been talking to Jeff @ Whitby Motorcars since the Boss 427 body went into the shop about 7 weeks ago. I’m taking the Go-Cart down to Greensboro, NC and dropping it off on Thursday. The body isnt ready yet, but should be very soon. I hope to get a peek at the Boss’s shell and see what stage it’s at. Hopefully, this is all starting to come together. When they are done, it will just be a quick weekend trip down and back to bring her all home.
While speaking with Jeff, turns out he can absolutely polish the Breeze roll bars. So I’m taking those down with me to drop off at the same time. I’m not asking him to install them, but I’m excited to be getting some of these things done.
Hopefully another big update by the weekend.
Few things have happened
I have fixed a small coolant leak at the heater select valve, and replaced the power steering pump with a unit that is setup and dyno’d for flow and pressure to match the Fox Mustang steering rack. Also has a reservoir mounted right to the side of the pump for excellent fluid supply.
