It is Sunday!!! Which for me, means that I have to start school again tomorrow. *Booooo!* However, my dad and I made a lot of progress on the engine heads last week! *Yay!* First I lapped valves! I enjoyed everything about it except for my own spit that would get all over my hands when I missed the suction cup…….
After the valves were lapped, we then added the valve springs.
I ain’t joking when I say that by the time we are done with my Corvette, it is gonna be lean, mean, rich-running, Prius-repelling, street machine!! Thank ya’ll for following this blog! God bless ya’ll! Keep checking this blog every Sunday night-‘Cause not every teenage girl gets to restore a ‘Vette. Besides, how many other girls do you know have lapped engine valves? So long until next Sunday!
Psst! My next blog update involves an engine crane!! ;]
I’d like to add this. I don’t know if you guys know about this, but across the country, there are over a hundred drive-in movie theaters may be going out business because they cannot afford to convert their film projectors to digital projectors. The reason why this is hard for these theaters is because a digital projector costs around eighty grand, and that is way to much to for a small business theater(which is what most drive ins are) to handle. Recently, the theater closest to my house, known as the Mchenry County Outdoor Theater, won the digital projector that they needed by the end of this year through Honda’s Project Drive In, which has already donated a few digital projectors to drive-ins across the country that needed to convert to digital. It would be awesome if you could help save these classic icons of Americana by checking out the site, http://projectdrivein.com/, and watch the video to see what project drive-in has already done, and how you can help. This means a lot to me and it would be great to see more awareness for drive-ins across the country the could be closing forever after this year. Thanks for reading this and have an awesome day!! ~Jackie
