Rehabilitated Carburation

Projects, projects, projects… Between the GT6, the GT-Four, the CB360T and trying to keep the Lancer in half decent repair, I find myself struggling to stay afloat. This seemingly unmanageable workload becomes consuming as you have several dormant vehicles you’re not enjoying, all collecting dust at an alarming rate. As discussed in earlier posts, scheduling…

Packing It In

I’ve talked about it before, it’s nothing new. Target project completion dates continue to be chased but are often left unfulfilled, I remain to be my own worst enemy in this recurring theme of sluggish progression. Still though, my perspective with respect to the importance of effective project planning is left unchanged; you can’t meet…

Street Car Logic

As I grow older (yes, I realize I’m still young), the more I learn how valuable of a resource time is. No matter how many hours a day I choose to caffeinate myself for, there never seems to be enough time to accomplish everything on my to do list. Eliminating distractions helps, but downtime is…

Flange Design

With the power plant in its final resting position, it’s about time that the Triumph gets some tunnels to spit it’s maybe-one-day exhaust flames through. Since there are no off the shelf headers that exist for my vehicle configuration, I took on the project of designing my own exhaust flange as a start to the…

Restless

It’s been just over one month since my last post and so much has changed, the progress that has been achieved in such a short period of time is incredible. When I think about it, I really haven’t been at the shop that frequently. I’ve been pretty absent over the past two weeks, however it’s…

Inspiration

Back in July, I went on a trip with a group of my friends down to North Carolina. Avid motorcyclists and gear heads might already know where this is going but the lot of us packed ourselves up and headed to the infamous Tail of the Dragon. Once we arrived at The Dragon, we quickly…

Connected Driveline

I’ve managed to be able to sink some more money into the Triumph over the past month or so which, as always, makes fantastic things happen. Waiting both patiently and anxiously I received a phone call from Harman Heavy Vehicle Specialists, the company whom I gave the GT6 and Miata driveshafts to. Just as a…

How to Mount a Motor

It has been an insanely busy week working on the car but also incredibly productive. My goal was to get the motor and transmission mounted in the car so I can finally take them off of the hoist. I can happily say that with some help from friends, my goal was successfully accomplished last night….

GT6 Dashboard

Earlier on in the year when I was stripping the body of the GT6, the dashboard came out. Originally, I had plans to purchase a new dashboard that was pre-made with a walnut burl. However, when the guys came over to help me lift the body off of the car, John (being an excellent wood…
