    Icon9 I leave for SBN on wednesday, and cars not close to being done :(

    Got the car back from the mechanic. I get home tomorrow afternoon. From there, I go straight to autozone.

    I buy:

    New plug wires
    Lots and lots of heat shielding
    A better mirror/something idk yet so I can see out my right side when I drive


    After thats done, go back home, get that stuff in, and get back to work on the box.


    Finish up fiberglassin the wheel wells, all corners of the box esp the top ones that run from back to front, sealing it all up, making it even stronger than what it is now. Makin my moofers into 18"ers. Glassin entire inside, making an amp rack, testing, testing, testing, testing.



    Its going to be a looonnnggg couple of days. I will be taking lots of pics, for those who want to see.

    And a 16hr drive to ATL, then 8 to daytona.

    This thread will turn into an hourly blog of getting everything ready, and getting a respectable score with the time left.

    Starting on my trip to the airport tomorrow at 11:30 AM.

    Update:


    Drove it into my garage, everything went well.
    Changed out the old, bad spark plugs with new ones, added more engine coolant, and moved the 2/0 away from where it can be melted.

    Now, I went to leave at 8:00 this morning, very very rough idle, infact stalled when I went into reverse.
    Got her started, and she stalled out as I was going down my driverway.

    Would not turn over. Went to check plugs, one came loose, pushed it back in.

    Went to start again, just a clicking noise.


    Now I have no confidence in this car, Im starting to wonder if I should just scrap it.

    Did that twice.

    I replaced it.

    Mechanic said it was bad, replaced it again.



    Appears to be a flooded engine at this point.
    A real strong smell of gasoline. Guess I gotta pull out those plugs.


    But with all this going wrong, Im starting to wonder if its worth it. I dont know if it can handle the 2000+ miles to daytona and back.
