Memorial Day weekend was nice. Got an extra day off which was very much needed.
Sunday I took the dogs to Arlynnas to swim and celebrate her Dad’s birthday. Fun fact: Shelby loves to swim. As you can tell from the following pictures.
Lady more just likes to hang out and enjoy the scenary.
We spend most of the day swimming and relaxing. Enjoyed good BBQ and that was it. It was an amazing day.
Monday I got to work on the RB. I grabbed the valves, valve springs, retainers, new shims to replace the ones I lost, and valve seals and got to work.
Started with installing the valve seals which went as easy as it should have. With a little bit of oil they slipped right on.
Next. I pulled out the valve compressor and got to installing the the springs and valves. I was a bit confused at first but after doing the first valve I got the hang of it.
Everything is looking real nice and clean. I love it. So excited for how everything is coming together.
I only got as far as installing the springs and valves. Hopefully this weekend I’ll get the cams in to check the clearances and pop the head on.
Tucked away till I get back to it.
I test fitted the cage because I was really excited about it as well as I was nervous about it being for another chassis. Like a 2+2 or a Slick top but it fit in just fine! It’s snug but that’s because it’s on the carpet and not bolted in.
I was originally thinking of painting it black but to be honest I really like the blue now hahah I’m gonna leave it that way for a little bit.
Phil stopped by while I was doing all this to the Z and once I finished up we went and ate then went over to his house to tinker with his car.
He just got these cool 13″ SSR’s.
He’s in the process of doing some body work and getting it ready to paint soon. Really looking forward to it’s next stage!
Also I made this one “4.5” cause I only got half of the work done to the things I worked on this weekend haha hopefully next week I’ll have vol “5” complete!
