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…

Emotion in Motion

Alright, Christmas break is over. I’ve pounded back hundreds of cookies, squares, macaroons, assorted meats and alcoholic beverages. Every day it was harder to breathe than the last and for some reason my workouts are getting more challenging… weird… Anyways, now that most of the running around is over, I’ve managed to make a little…

Seats and Cooling

I haven’t really done much physical work to the Triumph over the past month, save the past few days. However, behind the scenes I’ve been planning my steps at becoming closer to my goals. I’ve been looking heavily into wiring and exhaust components, as well as thinking about what’s the best way to tackle my…

Fuel

Work has been endless and literally non-stop. I’m seldom home and when I do manage to allocate some time to be home, it’s usually just to load up the coffee maker and make my lunch for the next day. To be honest, I’ve been a bit of a zombie for the past couple of months…

Blending Wheels and Mig Welders

I’m pretty lucky. Pretty much whenever I want to, I get to surround myself with automotive excellence. Wide fenders, sticky tires and noisy exhausts – it’s really just a shop full of toys. It has been nice though, every time I walk in through that door I get bombarded with inspiration and happiness. With a…

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…

Cooling Things

Just a short update. I’m working on mounting all of accessories on the car to get everything to fit properly. This includes an aftermarket oil cooler, a radiator and the OEM intake bits. I just have a bunch of photos for reference. Any drips in the primer on the frame I will be fixing so…

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…
