I'd be writing my protest right now lol, but I should probably start my treatise on how my FC is a legit chumpcar and yet runs a faster lap time then domo's car.

Reduced the wiring, peeled out about 30lbs of sound deadening and insulation. Got another door removed for racifying. Installed go pedal. Pressure washed oil pan, steering rack, and crossmember.

Installed a fresh set of rod bearings. The old bearings actually looked really good and the crank was in great shape. Also started a big job of cleaning the spare head.









Started on this job as well. This door is in a little worse shape than the passenger side.

The horns just fell apart during dis-assembly. We will need something new if it will ever beep again. Weight reduction continues.

Cut the interior panel off the driver's side door. Took latch mechanism apart and cleaned it up so now the trigger rebounds on it's own. Finally riveted the end of the cable to the frame so when the cable gets yanked, the latch pops open.
