Topped up oil to fill line today (26 Mar), need to track consumption. Topped up dash pots for carbs w/5-20 SAE Car starts easily w/choke and no gas pedal (per shop manual don't use gas pedal!

Got the steering rack back in car, awesome! Replaced boots, re-oiled and installed with solid aluminum mounts. Somehow got the alignment right out of the gate, steering wheel is even straight, no issues. Will need column bushings at some point, but not now..... Cleaned front suspension quite a bit, but still needs more scrubbing to see all the components. NEEDS headlight upgrade, alternator, relays, LED taillights.
