    yeah i run 93 in her, about 10.25:1 compression if i remember correctly. Things i am planning here soon. Efi dyno tunes, new dizzy installed for timing control, a few 1/4 mile runs, maybe a test and tune auto cross, and really just enjoy the car. I entered the car into a car show on May 7th .

    I wish i could go to the 50th show, but the wife will be 8 months pregnant and with our past pregnancies I better not go anywhere 4+ hours away.

    Re: 70 restomod

    Looking good eric,

    have you installed the headliner yet? I seen the video of the interior installed but noticed the headliner out. Are you going to install dynamat under the roof prior to the headliner??

    thanks

    Pat,

    I have not get to the headliner yet, as of this morning I was talking with my interior guy about doing it for me, covering the speaker panel, and c pillars. I don't plan on doing dynamat on the roof, I don't have any noise I can tell from it.

    Re: 70 restomod

    Is there a way to bench test the lights/fuel gauge on the gauge cluster to see what the issue might be?

    Not really. But, you haven't said what the issue is!

    Issue is no back lighting, only one turn signal blinks on dash, no high beam indicator, gas gauge stopped (was working) those are the only things I really need on the gauge pod. Tach and Speedo working but they are hooked up differently than the others.

    Re: 70 restomod

    No backlighting, assume you tried turning the headlight switch (it is a dimmer function)? It also could be a bad headlight switch (if you have a spare to try, unplug the switch in place and try the spare hanging down, not mounted). All your 194 bulbs good in the cluster? Sometimes the 194 sockets don't make contact. Printed circuit have any lifting traces? If yes, replace it. Gas gauge could be related to the last question as well.

    tried the headlight switch, and not difference, are the bulbs like a christmas light where one goes out they all go out? I was about to order a new circuit and regulator but wanted to check everything else before i spent another $130 for a $1 bulb... thanks for the reply bob!
