Gary did you get your rattle noise fixed that you inquired about several years ago?

Second question you had the car ready for paint did you get it painted?

Hi Steve,
Funny that you remember. This is a very slow going project I am working on. It is a kit car with a Corvair engine in it. When I first posted, I had just got the project. I started the engine and heard a slight rattle. It was the gear box was dry. No dipstick in it. You have to go under the car and fill through a bolt hole. The car was not ready for paint at that time but I had started to do some body work. Since then, the project got put on hold. Most body work is done and close to ready for paint, but that will be the last thing I do. I am doing engine, trans, and interior right now. (I'm back at it again) Thus I am looking for some assistance with the 4 carb linkage and getting it set up properly, and a slight backfire issue....

Of course I remember your Fiberfab Avenger. Look at my Sig line and you will understand...

Re your comment about dipstick on diff remember you have VW gearbox and no axle check dipstick was offered.

Good luck with your project

Awesome Steve!
I love it! Thanks so much for reaching out! I am enjoying this project and the Ford GT40 body style is my all time favorite car! I cant wait to one day complete this project. Although not a real GT40, it is going to still be damn awesome!!
All The Best,
Gary
