    Hoping to get a good jump on the interior this upcoming weekend.

    Has anyone installed a manual choke cable in their Fox? If so, where did you route the cable through the firewall?

    Manual choke installed, moved oil pressure gauge to radio panel.

    Fixed some wiring issues and installed an AC idler pulley and removed the pump, lines & condenser.

    Started to clean up the floor in preparation for laying the carpet... guess what, more cracks.

    I tried to weld them up, but the welder just blows straight through the rusty metal. Might have to cut it out and use some steel as a replacement... but I am not a welder or a fabricator at all.

    Any tips for welding rusty Fox floor pans?

    Ford Motorsport ignition and rev limiter works great. I bought the 5100-5900 RPM chip set, figuring a stock head '83 flat tappet will be out of steam by 5900. I noticed in a set of instructions that another user on here posted that the red wire on the FMS harness required 12v keyed. This was for the C301 box and I have the A301 box. On my harness, I already have 12v on the white wire from the vehicle harness side that turns into the red wire on the FMS harness so I guess I don't need to do anything about that?

    Also, if anyone is familiar with the fuel line/parking brake line fasteners... what would you call it? It is the coarse pointed threaded fastener with flanged hex head. Is this considered a bolt or a screw? I need to secure the fuel lines back up to the body.

    I've been busy doing a lot of carburetor tuning and fixing wiring harnesses.

    I prefer the Pony wheels. Probably could stand to have some lowering springs in the rear. That's pretty low on the list, however...

    Working on interior, carpet is installed. Needs to be cut for all console holes & whatnot. Don't remember how the headliner goes in at all... that'll be fun.

    This car? Again? Will it ever be finished? Probably not.

    Still in basically the same shape, but I've made it more angry with a 4778 double pumper carburetor and a bunch of distributor curving.

    Re-done headliner is sitting in the garage ready to go back in.
