    Well, my new piece has arrived. It's been a very long road to get this one done. It's an RK Sport engine cover but with a twist. These covers were never made for the duel fuel lines like the '97's & '98's have. I've always liked this cover and didn't ever intend to get one until a Corvette Forum member reached out to me saying he could make it look like it came with the 2 lines. So I purchased one after we talked back and forth for a while and I was very comfortable with his work he's done for others. It is now finally done and on the car. I got it back from the painter yesterday afternoon. I personally think it turned out great and love the new look. I expect it won't be for everyone and that's okay too. I looked back at when this all started and it was way back in November of 2019, so yeah, it's been a long trip. The guy that did the custom duel fuel line mod did a fantstic job with it. I couldn't be more happy with the placement of the second line, it lines up perfectly. They both have enough clearance they won't rub on the lines and damage the paint either, I was worried about that part. Super easy to take on and off too, no more scratching the paint trying to get the lines out of the cover. We figured this is the only cover like this in existence for the duel fuel line cars. No one I've talked to has ever seen another one. So here's a few pictures of the new piece. This gives it a new look I've been wanting. We'll see how it goes over at the next show though, when they ever come back that is. I was hoping to show it off at the next gathering but I just couldn't wait that long. Here's the video of the process I went through for this engine cover. It became a little longer then I anticipated but I had to add my twist to it. So you can skip to whatever if you want. Almost forgot, I found some purple bolts to replace the black ones holding it on too. They'll be here in a week or so. Those should look pretty cool too. Hope you enjoy it. Well, I didn't think it was going to be possible, but a friend of mine told me to look for purple bolts. I found some with the wide head area so I had to order them. They were waiting for me when I got home from work this morning so I had to install them. I like the look so and think they go well with the purple in the Ape.

    Emery paper and a dual action sander. Scuff/de-glaze the rotor surfaces. Install low dust pads, bed them properly don’t laugh, done this more than once and had great results every time. I don’t even take the rotors off to do it

    Great guy, Great Friend, Great person, now in great need, If you can spare some change, that'd be Great, if not could you please share? Anything is appreciated, Greatly! David is in dire need of some financial help. Please see below to read all about the situation. https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-save-daves-brain?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=m_pd+share-sheet&fbclid=IwAR3EPZXTQoW79TzvwoarRZQi_lrwB7bCNneRNDGQf9PKmwIsNjnGSq-fqSY "Talking some more with Dave, he shared this pic of his brain with the hemorrhage. This is what needs to be fixed or else he's going to die from it. Please donate whatever you can, but please remember that we're on a very short time frame here. And the hospital administration won't admit him until the cost of the procedure is paid upfront. This is a perfect example of crappy insurance. So please donate and tell everyone you know to donate as well. Thanks goes out to everyone who has been so generous so far." Copied from originator of the fund.

    Wow what a blast today. What a sight it must have been to see 20 Corvettes storming off from the meeting point. Met some great people today, had a wonderful lunch and it goes without saying saw some beautiful cars. Thanks Donna for putting this together. Gwen and I are looking forward to the next one.

    Clean TonyKart Krypton TAG, with a newly rebuilt Vortex Rok 125cc engine. Will hit ~ 70mph on PKRA straight. The engine was completely rebuilt (Top/Btm) by AZ Kart Werx (have receipt), with ~ 1hr usage. The Krypton chassis is a 32mm frame, with OTK brake, dual OTK master cyl, OTK bearings and magnesium OTK hubs. The wheels are OTK magnesium with a spare set of (nearly new) Douglas magnesium wheels. Includes 2 good batteries (electric start), a stack of rear sprockets, spare jets and a new spare chain. Seat is a Tillett ML size. Kart stand not included, but will include an upright storage stand. Bought a shifter so the TAG is up for sale.

    I wasn't going to say anything because I didn't want to embarrass Dawg about how old he is. But the cat's out of the bag now!

    I’ve got to bring it by. When you’re not busy on a Saturday let me know. You need to drive it. It’s just too fun.

    It's a beautiful car...like a McLaren, Lamborghini, or Ferrari. But as a Corvette, I don't like it. I would rather have a C5Z or aenigma's '77.

    P51tj, since his baby only had 820 mi. on the clock and he wasn't in the car while I drove it around a big (mostly) empty parking lot... no. I did get the feel of the power and the quick shifting that was so different from my '08.

    FYI - to anyone signed up to participate or thinking about joining this cruise PLEASE be sure to check the first post of this thread the night before the cruise. Due to COVID and all the recent brush fires, I will be doing a "dry run" a day or two before to check out road conditions, rest stop availability, and restaurant status. If there are problems, I will try to set up appropriate alternatives, so this cruise can still be a go on Saturday. Any changes to meet point/route/rest stops/lunch location WILL BE NOTED IN THE FIRST POST OF THIS THREAD THE NIGHT BEFORE.

    The GO FundMe is CLOSED and they reached their goal at $104K. Dave came up with the rest to cover the tab. I talked with him yesterday and at least he was in good spirits. He thanks Tim for posting this on here in his behalf. I hope his surgery goes well.👍

    Very cool. I'd love to see an orange one I person. I'm kind of partial to that color but the wife doesn't care for it much. We NEED that all Corvette show to happen and soon now. Bet they'll have a class for the C8's by now. I also have something to show you all too. A new piece to my puzzle will be here next week.

    Not initially, however; I did walk down hoping to catch him outside with the car and give him an ACE business card but no joy. I'll continue to look for him.

    I'm sitting on my mom's porch enjoying a cup of coffee, a cigar with 65 degree temps and watching the deer feed in the field.
