Glad to hear the surgery went well Bob and that you'll be back in action soon.

Are you planning to attend the Glory Days event in Byron this year? I have had to withdraw as my wife and pit crew can't get away.

Default Fall plans

The Renault has been sitting dormant for quite a while. Because I'm getting too slow in my dotage. The plan is to work on it this fall and winter. The Magnum tube axle with Wilwood brakes that came out of my Crosley will be replacing the MII front suspension. The change will give it a bit of a gasser look. But the main reason is to allow for the engine to be moved forward 10". The reason for doing that is to provide more foot room inside. At the same time a newer bullet is going in. Here, in plastic wrap is a freshly machined 360 small block Chevy. I have a rotating assembly and heads for it. The 406 sbc presently residing in the Ren is smoking. It will get fixed and used in a future project.

Default Renault 2.0

After sitting all lonely in the back garage for over a year the Renault fired right up. Pulled it in the front garage and began the dismantle portion of the project.The engine set back seen in the second and third pics will be eliminated as the engine will be slid forward. I have a fresh .060 over 350 sbc to replace the troubled 406. And it will get a straight axle. It didn't handle right with the very narrow Mustang II suspension and the extreme engine set back.
