WRL Car taking shape

Thank you to everyone for your advice on the car, spent my day at the shop getting things ready.

Still waiting for a host of parts, but the car is ready once they arrive.

I would be happy to post updates if anyone cares, I have to change out the fuel door from the dry break to a Fuel Safe unit. Then a host of small things. Need to find a track day where I can shake it down before the first race which we are targeting for August 18th at Barber.

By the end of the week we will have her on hub stands so we can easily scale and set the car up. Hopefully out 2 post lift will get installed soon and the tire change machine and balancer arrive. Paid $200 to mount up 8 tires this weekend. The machine will be paid for in no time.

Very jealous of the tire machine!! Such a hassle hauling everything around!

Nice shop!

+1 on the tire machines, you will love having them. I bought a set this last year and it has been great doing my own tires.
