The hood arrived on Tuesday and it is not the same as the old one. This one has the vent (windshield wiper) panel attached, unlike the stock configuration that I have. After much discussion, we decided to go with the new hood configuration.

We will paint the front of the car while we are at it and do a few more things to dress up the front. The work will be done by Mr. Lands of Mathis Automotive, 5813 Greenwell Springs Rd., Baton Rouge (225) 924-3232. He does paint and body and fiberglass work.

We will continue racing with the K&N Air Filter setup. There is a Sunday Test & Tune at State Capitol on this coming Sunday, Oct. 4, 2015. Looks like excellent weather for this weekend. The next big race is on Oct. 10, 2015.

I changed my oil and filter this week. I also worked to stop two minor oil leaks that have been evading me. Had to rimove the starter and tighten to front bolt on the oil pan for one of them. The other was a incorrect nut on the rear end that was not tight.
