I'm not sure that you can directly link Flickr pictures (I don't have a Flickr account, so I'm not sure).

Anyway, here are the direct links to your pictures. Nice car!

I am puzzled by the fit of the grill!! Why does it fit so poorly?

I can't answer that..not having another bugeye before, but that is why I have been wondering about doing a stainless steel wire mesh grill for better airflow. Overall, the car looks great. I have touched her up and this weekend got a few more safety items taken care of.

I am used to taking my CTS-V to the track, been to IRP, Putnam and Autobahn...so the difference in a 100 hp car in the turns vs the caddy and her 400 hp is really different, but the open air and the sound is much more fun than the caddy.

The grill the real deal is supose to be bent to fit. It is not flat.

Yes, Hap, great to hear from you.
I changed our the fuel regulator tonight and now the car is done for the year, just waiting to go to the track in April 2008! I am going to call you next week about the other engine, we can figure how to ship it the best.

How are things? Tucker turns 65 this weekend, Sunday is going to be a party!

GB1, thanks. I am putting her away for the year, just finished the install and plumbing for the low oil pressure warning light and the new fuel regulator, took her for a test drive through the neighborhood...good trip it was!
