Thank You, Mark! Levi is in for scans right now. Praying for good results. I totally support any efforts to improve awareness for childhood cancer! Childhood cancers only receive about 8% of the budget for cancer research. I think this is so wrong!!!

Finally bought the bolts, nuts and washers today and got the front end mocked up. New bearings and seals to install yet on the hubs. All is looking good! Anyone have the brake mounts for stock Toyota?

I promise that I will get some pics posted soon!!!

New lower ball joints from VMS Motorsports! Another set of hubs, rotors and much needed baking plates from Craig Gillihan! Was like Christmas in May!!! Also picked up my rear end and some other associated parts that were stored elsewhere. I forgot how fast that Stelletto rack turns! Been working 6 days a week, so not much time to spend getting the car together. More nuts, bolts and washers to buy to get the rear end mounted. SCCA requires hardened washers on both sides of all heims. Just some small differences to meet their rules.

Steering rack installed, all bolts, nuts and washers in place. Working on the hubs and brakes tomorrow. May get to start on the rear end as well. Have to get the tires mounted on the wheels and balanced. Hopeful that I can get Big O Tire to sponsor that.

Great weather today! Didn't do anything with the race car; Chose to spend it with my lady and a wonderful Mother. Also spent a few moments to promote Childhood Cancer Awareness. Just maybe my post will help make a difference. I promoted my friend and sponsor, Jim and VMS Motorsports. I apologize to those I failed to mention that have helped along my journey to get this race car built. I can't Thank Everyone here on the site enough for all your help and support!

THANK YOU!!!

Steve,

Good choice spending the day yesterday with your lady. I spent mine too with my Mom(whom I am fortunate to be alive yet and in good health) and my wife as well. Without them, we don't do what we love to do. Keep us posted on status of your project.

Lower ball joints installed. Broke the backing shields loose from the brake caliper mounts and installed those. Hubs installed as well.
A bit of clean up and paint and all will be bolted on permanently.

So, my big project today was to install the gas pedal. Don't laugh at me! lol!!! I have been having a lot of problems with my blood pressure and a lot of stress created by this Covid virus. We are still on lockdown at work. Back to working long days and weeks. Hopeful that things will get better soon and I can spend more time on the car. Next project today is to change the oil in Kelly's van. I hope there will still be time to do a bit more on the race car today.

Got the oil change done yesterday in Kelly's van. I placed the rear end in the racecar today. Need to get some more spacers from Jim (VMS Motorsports) and get my tires mounted. At least I can roll it around after that. I have no energy. Between the blood pressure issues and trying to get back to work, I am exhausted. I'll take baby steps if that's what I have to do to get her done!
