A great day with The Ark!
« on: April 30, 2018, 11:43:06 PM »
Got The Ark back today from Scott, its running GREAT! He really went through it well.
His test drive was on route 6 up to 70mph, taking his hands off the wheel and hitting the brakes, etc. He really
beat on it, fast sharp turns, etc. Its perfect. I still think it idles a bit rough but smooths right out when you hit the gas. He said its fine, leave it alone.

Everyone wanted to keep the goofy gauges except me, take them out. When he took them out he noticed multiple live wires - a fire waiting for a time to happen. And all the 'connections' were taped with duct tape. Nice.
GONE!

And my 12v is gone too, he'll put in another one when we do the EB cables. So great to finally drive the car today. Really busy work day tomorrow but I'll make the time to reach out to In Line Tube for cables and Cadillac Heaven for condenser #3.

First show in 10 days... lots of work to do.
