I haven't posted much lately but I have been working at on the 7 as much as I can. I got new rear calipers and painted all 4 calipers using the G2 epoxy paint. I am happy with the results.

Moving as slow as molasses in January, but moving just the same

Not to worry, bro... Moving is good. Moving carefully (sounds better than slow) usually equates to fewer mistakes. Not that I'd actually know that, but I've heard... :mrgreen:

Thanks JD. My goal is to hear the engine run, in the car, by New Years.

I'd bet on that happening! How-some-ever, the main thing is still to have fun. As long as that happens, it's all good!

Oh, and when it does run, you will have to post a video (this is not optional!), or expect to be abused.
This can be a rough crowd, ya know??? :mrgreen:

I am certainly having fun and enjoying each milestone/accomplishment along the way. The engine is almost complete including the VW lifters which save about 30g each (hoping it will help at high revs). The problem is I haven't even started on wiring this thing and I am a little overwhelmed. the lights and stuff aren't the problem but the running circuits and computer needs for the EFI is a challenge. I am also partially color blind so I will stick to some basic colors to keep it easy. a back story to that, I tried to fix the horn on my 1970 MGB when I was 16 and hot wired the car instead :shock:
