      I've been slacking on updating this.

      I've gotten the floors sealed, new jute put down and some sound deadening put down.

      I also found the reason the floor rotted out in the first place.. Some nice rain tray rot. So I cut this crud out today and I'm going to patch it up hopefully tomorrow. Then the chassis is ready for primer.

      Looking good. It's always nice to figure out issues like water entry points and such.

      Just curious: Are you going to do any expanding foam anywhere to help with sound deadening? I've heard positive results from it, and things are well stripped down now to do it.

      The warm weather came fast, I have no excuse not to work on my Cabriolet and get it on the road already!

      Thanks man!

      Also, I have heard the same about expanding foam for sound deadening, but I'm going to forgo anymore sound deadening in this car only because it is insanely loud to begin with. The engine just produces so much noise, but it's a glorious noise!

      And your damn right about that! Get workin on it! I picked up a nice jug of VP C12 race fuel so I could take my cabby for a drive the other day even though the diff is basically toast haha. It was totally worth it though.

      Did a thing today. An irresponsible thing that looks and feels like boost.. That's because it's a turbo. A BorgWarner EFR 7163 take off from an indy car team. It's in great shape and is V-band in and out which I wanted for the AAN. And it's got the non-waste gated turbine housing which is also part of why I bought it. I'm very pumped on this.

      Nice grab on the turbo

      Awesome project man, I can't wait to see where this goes. If you need a model or drawing for the 3-bolt compressor inlet, just let me know and I'll send some info your way
      Need custom prototypes or components?

      Wonder where it came from according to the postal service it's going to be here tomorrow which is awesome.

      But I'm going to send you a PM because I'm definitely interested in the 3 bolt compressor inlet.

      Tried to PM you with some QSW questions. I'm too new here to do so it seems. I'm starting a restoration of an 87 QSW.
