Tail of the tape

2012.12.14 - El Camino (1)

2012.12.14 - El Camino (2)We had other things going on in the shop today so we didn’t spend a lot of time working on the El Camino. After the disappointment yesterday when starting the car I pulled the plug on getting it to the show in February, the reason we were scrambling to finish it. All we did today was get the car cleaned out and the sound deadening seams taped over to prevent goo from potentially getting on the back of the interior when it is installed.

You may recall that yesterday when we we started the car it made a horrible noise. Kelly and Josh Murphy tracked the noise to the crank just brushing against the oil pan. The owner has made arrangements to have the oil pan replaced over the weekend with work starting on that this afternoon. Maybe, if all goes well, we will have a much better, a much less noisy, video of the El Camino running this weekend.

I hope that is the case.
