- The killer for all
of this is that it's technically been 2 full weeks
since I was out in Columbus and only NOW do
I have a real update. Since I broke that
whole 3-day weekend into 3 episodes it's been a nice
leisurely pace for the viewers every 4-5 days getting
a new piece. Either way, here we are...
- Yes, there's a
special level of hell for me for that but honestly
I couldn't include everything in this video
without it being 15 minutes. We have to save the
engine start/tuning and possibly even DRIVING for the
next episode because that's all happening TODAY. That
first attempted engine pull was at
1:41 AM this MORNING. Basically
I needed everything that lead up to that moment
that happened yesterday to be added to the footage
I've been sitting on for a week because their previous
Saturday just wasn't enough for one episode. See?
Kinda make sense?
- No, I'm still a
- As I certainly am
for that battery tray. Holy fuck. And if
I mention the amp to Kenny one more time he's
liable to punch me. The issue is it's very difficult
to talk "screen accurate" to someone who is killing
himself for the car to even MOVE... but from the
I HAVE TO TALK ABOUT THAT. We
have to fit not only 4 massive batteries in the trunk,
but also a charger, an inverter, a fog machine
AND the amp for the subwoofers and speakers, etc.
So I had to make sure he had all of those things
before he MOUNTED anything. Even though I'll do all
that wiring when I get to Columbus on March 16th,
you have to have the components to know if it's all
going to fit. And, well, just like the craziness of
that rear bumper? It looks like everything is going to
fit up front as well. It's an absolute cluster-fuck of
boxes and wires and doo-dads and come to think of it?
When I open the hood? It will look like it's part
of the time machine. I think that's what I most
dig. I'm the mad-scientist at heart that just has
wires and shit EVERYWHERE. To have 8 seperate things
in that trunk all wired for crazy reasons from fog to
music to lights to MOTOR... it's very, very "Doc". And
also very original to THIS car. I now can't
wait to open both the hood AND the trunk and
watch people go: "HOLY SHIT, DUDE."
- Also it should be
noted, it's absolutely killing me to not be there.
I know the guys that are helping are doing it for
free and I do appreciate that but I hope they
realize how badly I'd give anything to stand-in for
them... and honestly how many people watching this
entire thing want to say they had a hand in this.
We're getting into the meat of this project and it's
going to be over before we know it. It'll soon just be
the finished project for years... and man we'll find
these videos very, very precious. Thanks again to
everyone who has been helping!
