    incredible day watching the power tour cruise thru north bama today .. my arm is sore from waving at so many cars and my neck hurts from looking left for 3 hours .. i parked my pinto at a car wash at a stop light in Hazel Green and was plenty visible to everyone passing by .. even some of the local people picked up that something was going on and stopped to watch a bit .. one car builder i follow on u tube came all the wat down from Canada to make the cruise .. i saw him come by .. i dont think he noticed me even though i gave a warning i would be there ,, i got noticed by plenty others .. a couple of other builders i did not see or maybe they came by after i left ,, three hours sitting in a hot pinto was enuff for me .. if it is 17 years before they come back again i cant promise i will be watching .. i made no effort to get pictures although several cars stopped at the Orielly`s store next door .. more later model vettes than anything but a nice selection of everything all across the board ..

    not only did my left arm get tired and sore from waving for 3 hours but this morning i wake up to see a nice shade of red ..i remember years ago seeing guys with left arms darker than right arms and knew it was because they drove cars with no AC and their left arm hanging out the window .. HA ! one of the people who i had followed a bit prior to their going on the tour made a video of coming into Bama but stopped filming not but a minute away from passing by me and perhaps getting me on video .. so close to my 15 minutes of fame ..

    Is the Canadian builder you follow DD Speed shop by chance? A friend of mine is driving a Cummins T300 service truck. Cummins is pushing their R2.8 swap engine and has 2 or 3 vehicles on the cruise too. Matt gets to help stranded participants or drives the 66 F100 that has a Cummins 2.8 in it. He said the first day there were over 100 over heated cars at least.

    It actually came out beautiful. There’s a few small pin holes I’ve got to close up and then I’ll start filling the unnecessary accessory holes in the fire wall and there’s quite a few of them from the factory. And then I gotta make a couple small patch panels to attach the firewall to the actual floor. But it is coming along, and I call that progress….. joe

    Thanks Joe! I hadn't noticed it earlier but there are a lot of holes in that firewall. They can't be all factory?? Are they?? All by the factory I mean.. But it is coming together and it's a good feeling when you're making progress!

    Yup 99% of the holes are in that firewall are from the factory. I think there’s maybe three or four added and they were for the aftermarket heater and some kind of brake control. The tiny holes were made for push pins to hold the firewall insulation on. But yeah the firewalls are full of holes from the factory…joe

    Thanks for the reply Joe. I guess "we" never really notice things like the number of holes in a firewall 'til someone has one exposed so completely as you have. Thanks again for the reply and the picture! 8-)

    Yep, once you remove all the hardware and electronics from the firewall they’re peppered up pretty good with holes from the factory. It amazed me the first time I stripped one down as far as this one is…joe
