The fork I welded for my coupe turned out good, but I donít weld very often so weíll see how this one turns out.

The front is easy, but the backside of the fork is a little tight for the mig nozzle.

Return spring? Is that important? Just looked at my car during lunch and thereís nothing connected to the tab on my 98L.

I figured it was for the cars with the hill holder thing

Long weekend. Got it fired up like an hour ago. It started first try, so thatís nice. Video below. Actual post and pics soon....Iím tired.

Lost a lot of time and made no progress Friday, because we got 5 inches of rain and my canopy collapsed. Still some things to button up, so i didnít really accomplish my goal of driving it home Friday, and back to work Tuesday....but at least its up and running.

The look on your face when it started up is priceless.

I wasnít expecting it to start like that. Usually a first start after putting the engine in, needs to crank more then it stumbles a bit until it gets all the fuel and stuff. Plus I figured I would forget a plug somewhere, or something. It went almost too well, and makes me kinda suspicious
