Since I missed the warm weather window of opportunity to redo the wood on the woody, I'm looking forward to doing that this spring. I've already got a pile of poplar and a sheet of real wood veneer ready to go. Also I've got some rust holes that need to be welded up, pans and wheelwells.

Change the oil, adjust the valves and win a championship.

Actually this is the 1st winter in several years where nothing is broken and everything runs.

Get camping gear in it and try to get the FI back in if I can locate the parts. Oh, and take it on a road trip.

Yup I'm trying to locate the entire FI system for my bus. It's a long shot but eventually I want to get back to the stock system. These IDFs are just fine but the MPG is not that great, and they are quite noisy.

Should be installing a single dellorto 36 for my baja for now as my current solex is due for a rebuild, already installed my crane cams optical ignition and gathering a pulleys and such for supercharging. In debate for twin charging it.
