Got a ramp truck for sale in or around Charlotte NC?  Hit me up, I am looking hard for something.

Shook the tires. The cars running really well. Going to take it for a long drive tomorrow get some highway miles on it. . . . #ford #fordracing #turboford #merkur #xr4ti #cars #car #racecar #projectcar #trackcar #racecars #gofast #oldguysfastcars #becauseracecar #turbo #powerband
Great time at #carsandcoffeecornelius this morning @waterbeancoffee. Saw some cool rides. Check out that Ecoboost restomod. . . #ford #fordracing #turboford #merkur #xr4ti #cars #car #racecar #projectcar #trackcar #racecars #gofast #oldguysfastcars #becauseracecar #turbo

Finished up a fresh round of white on the 10 holes. Looking pretty good for the age. . . . #ford #fordracing #turboford #merkur #xr4ti #cars #car #racecar #projectcar #trackcar #racecars #gofast #oldguysfastcars #becauseracecar #turbo #wheels #fordwheels #10holes
From junkyard to race car, just like that. I love this technique for one man brake bleeding. . . #ford #fordracing #turboford #merkur #xr4ti #cars #car #racecar #projectcar #trackcar #racecars #gofast #oldguysfastcars #becauseracecar #giveemthebird #turbo #brakes #junkyard #calipers
It was important for me to understand what went wrong with the failed caliper. Since it was a new rebuild. . . Why did the threads pull? You can see the missing threads on the right, then in the second  and third  pictures you can see how much shorter the rebuilt calipers banjo bolt is. When I installed the caliper, it couldn't tighten correctly, causing the first 1/4" of threads to pull free. . . . #ford #fordracing #turboford #merkur #xr4ti #cars #car #racecar #projectcar #trackcar #racecars #gofast #oldguysfastcars #becauseracecar #giveemthebird #turbo
Don't think this guy thought his calipers would run on race tracks when he was hatched at the #ford #factory Got me some replacement #calipers , the  ones have pulled threads and leak. A little time and #elbowgrease at the #junkyard and Bam a nice leak free pair I can clean up or rebuild if needed. . . Oh yeah #protip the #lugnuts at most junkyards are free, they literally fall from the sky. . I should also say that its way more common to use 2012 and newer focus calipers, I started testing with the earlier make caliper and have the hoses for it, the ones pictured here are from a 2010. . . #ford #fordracing #turboford #merkur #cars #car #racecar #projectcar #trackcar #racecars #gofast #oldguysfastcars #becauseracecar #giveemthebird #turbo #adventure #junkcars #scrap #scavenger #recycle
Knocked out the other side! Few more checks and adjustments and it's back in the ground and ready for a new set of road testing. . . . #ford #fordracing #turboford #merkur #xr4ti #cars #car #racecar #projectcar #trackcar #racecars #gofast #oldguysfastcars #becauseracecar #giveemthebird #turbo #tca #controlarms

Spent the evening doing some race car things, dropped by and saw my Scottish brother @gator.b8, got to see the nest @race.engineering. Load of horse power/square foot there. We all love HP, if you want to love more of it, get with these guys. . . Then we rolled over to @sharkcagefabrication to see the #sharkcage and figured out how to get large full figured men into an #exocet safely. Some cool ideas came from this safety meeting. I can't wait to see what Alex does with this thing. . . . #ford #fordracing #turboford #merkur #xr4ti #cars #car #racecar #projectcar #trackcar #racecars #gofast #oldguysfastcars #becauseracecar #giveemthebird #turbo #goodday #goodpeople
#tbt to that time I crafted a paint booth in my garage and painted my first engine bay with a real spray gun. . . . #ford #fordracing #turboford #merkur #xr4ti #cars #car #racecar #projectcar #trackcar #racecars #gofast #oldguysfastcars #becauseracecar #turbo #paint #throwbackthursday

Default Merkur position. Time for some checks to see how all the new bits are doing.

Working on something a little different tonight. We bought this brass vase that needed a good polish, for the steel rose that @vetkart made for us. . .

Back in the garage to go up on stands and get a bolt inspection. I mark all critical nuts and bolts with a white grease pin so I can see if I have any movement or loosening. Got about 50 miles on it so it's about time to check it all over. . . . #ford #fordracing #turboford #merkur #xr4ti #cars #car #racecar #projectcar #trackcar #racecars #gofast #oldguysfastcars #becauseracecar #giveemthebird #turbo #inspection #shopcat

I have been struggling to find a really deceptive oil leak. Turned out it was the oring on the NOS dizzy I bought. Happened to have one in my gasket kit, woot! All fixed, best part is I get to test drive it tomorrow before work! . . . #ford #fordracing #turboford #merkur #xr4ti #cars #car #racecar #projectcar #trackcar #racecars #gofast #oldguysfastcars #becauseracecar #giveemthebird #turbo #oilleak #oring #secondjob
Now that is one huge mess. Now that I am done with the build I can clean this place up completely. Until the next project. . . . #ford #fordracing #turboford #merkur #xr4ti #cars #car #racecar #projectcar #trackcar #racecars #gofast #oldguysfastcars #becauseracecar #giveemthebird #turbo #garage
As I wrap up a vacation week, to finish the car, here are some of my favorite shots. Lots of help and time went into this build and I can't thank @race.engineering and some of my local friends enough for helping me get this car running and back on the road. . One thing stood out about building a race car, everyone I have encountered has been amazingly supportive. It made this adventure so much more than just building a car. The racing community is so welcoming, I am sure it's that we are all the same group of crazy fools who chase speed more than watching TV. . Next up is a trailer, need one cheap! Can't wait for my first event of the year.

Car is ready for it's first meet, tomorrow at #carsandcoffee @waterbeancoffee in #cornelius NC. Been a long road to this day.

I have been messing around with some different ideas for wraps or paint. One thought was to use a set of stripes like this set of masking tape example. . . . #ford #fordracing #turboford #merkur #xr4ti #cars #car #racecar #projectcar #trackcar #racecars #gofast #oldguysfastcars #becauseracecar #giveemthebird #turbo #maskingtape #stripes

Good first day back on the road. Got to work out a few bugs before I drive it again.

I had some over spray when I painted the bay. Leason learned, now it's time to clean it up. I have had good luck with @meguiars compound. I think I will hit the car this week with a complete cleaning and work on bringing this paint back again. . . . #ford #fordracing #turboford #merkur #xr4ti #cars #car #racecar #projectcar #trackcar #racecars #gofast #oldguysfastcars #becauseracecar #giveemthebird #turbo  #overspray #compound

Some cold start videos of the @race.engineering engine. This is with open header so it sounds a bit rough. Getting better each time I run it.

Working out the bugs, but it's getting better and better each time I run it. He's up on stands for Xmas while we hit the road.
