I'm a member of another forum that has a thread similar to this one. I'd like to start one here. It's been great over there, seeing all the projects other guys are up to every day! Anything goes as long as it's something you've done to your Elky. Pictures are always a plus if possible.

I'll go 1st. Today I took my elky to the shop next door and had my air conditioning fixed. It had a leaky hose. The hose is replaced, the system is charged, and now it's blowing nice and cold! :beer:

Great Thread Mike !!!

I installed my Alum Intake (thanks Tony), Dropped in my Accel HEI and ran some wires.

Had to have " Wife Time " so I cut it short after working a 12 hour day...lol

On Sunday I modified my AC Compressor bracket to fit with my heaaders. Last night I primed the brackets and got them ready for paint. Plan on painting them tonight.

Great start guys! Today I'm having the glass shop in my center install some "guide blocks" that keep my windows pressed against the foam seals(mine were broken). Hopefully this stops the air leaks I have on the freeway. :beer:

Just went and bought a used 350 SBC 4 bolt main long block for a new engine build to replace the original 305. Bring on the horsepower! (and the credit card bills) Summitt, Jegs, and Pace will be my friends in the coming months. :nanawrench:

Next, I need to replace the u-joints, as they're clanking and clunking and need to be replaced yesterday!

I drove it and got reminded how much I like it! I don't drive it very often since I've got so many cars. Just my wife and I and we have 6 vehicles.

I installed my very own self made leather smuggler's box curtain. I know it doesn't compare to the stuff you guys do to your Elkys, but I'm learning...
I like it! Good job.:beer:

this past weekend I installed a blower, rebuilt the 200r4, built a double hump cross member, installed a Grand National posi, replaced all the window rubber and weather stripping, and then I woke up... I really didn't do anything but i wanted to... this next weekend I'm replacing my power steering pump and related hoses. FO REAL!! I can't run the a/c until I get that fixed.
