Light drizzle falling, temp 37*, new top installed. Had to take a short cruise of 30 miles or so. Speedo not working yet. Steering is on rails. Engine is still running way too rich. Fuel pressure on the Dellorto is at 1 3/4#. Gonna try 1# next and see if that helps. Maybe have to re-adjust float level. Wipers work, heater motor doesn't. Some dash lights work others don't. New top will have to be re-stretched in the spring, but for now it is a driver. I had forgotten how much fun driving can be.

It is nice to see another from the great white north. Pretty soon we will have to put the toys away because to the white stuff. Up here I mean salt. Have a good weekend.

Same here in the Northeast, where occasionally a tiny bit of snow is mixed in with the road salt! :eeek:

Mine is gonna be a daily driver. If it rust out again I think I know someone who can work on it. :p. Be easier the second time around. These things are made to drive not sit in a snowbank.
