Lucky get's his first badge
Anyone who has ever prepared a car for a race understands what it's like to feel like he's falling behind schedule and the pressure that accompanies it. Well, I am no exception and there have been days recently that found me with just such a feeling and it's a bad feeling almost one that gives you a false sense of failure. But today things began to change as I was able to get some items checked off the things to do list. The first thing I did was install the door handles and then I finished drilling the holes for the original Shelby trunk pin. Since the plate will need to be removed prior to painting the racing strips I left a few of the rivets out which will be installed later. Then I installed the water/oil catch can which is ready to be plumbed once the engine is installed. Last but not least I installed Lucky's GT350 badge and then took time to stand back and feel some satisfaction knowing that today I made some headway.
One last thing was to cross off items that were finished and then update the list of things to do which gave me a sense of accomplishment and the feeling that I was in fact making some head way. Tomorrow I head up to the engine builders to drop off some goodies and then head over to Delta Bay Mustang to pick up the new rear window.
