The finish line's in sight!
Got the preliminary alignment complete and took it out for a spin. Felt good. Now to get the rack off and paint the top.
Okay, it's been another 2 months. I've been driving both around a while, no long trips yet. The green Amazon just cranks right up and purrs like a kitten, Slight vibration in the driveshaft on the Duet, I knew at the time I should have it balanced. Too late now, what's a couple of hours and a trip to the driveshaft shop. But it runs and drives great. Anyway the roof is painted and the rack is on, only the wood panels for the back need to be made. But I plan on making those later. Still a few small items to get finished. Interior dome lights, re-center the steering wheel and the like.
That's awesome! And the fact you're doing the wood work yourself, well good on you!
Ok, I'm still alive, just driving not posting. Got the drive shaft sorted out. Turns out the new center bearing I installed had a slight bit of slop. Removed it and put the 50 yr old bearing from the parts car in and all seems good now. I've always figured to fix everything there when you take something apart, but I'm beginning to believe that some of the new products aren't as good as the old ones that are in the car. If it ain't broke don't fix it. Still lots of little things to finish up, but it's way more fun driving. Need to put my 1800e up and on stands and do some maintenance on it. Like I said I'm a Volvo addict.
