Sorry missed your post. Thanks Ron, same for you!

Yea that sucked, we really couldn't leave the base other than Wal-Mart and gas stations for basics and snacks. Not sure about November, but someday I'll have to hang out with y'all.

It's the lightest Ford blue made by Duplicolor. Unfortunately I couldn't do powdercoat with the valve covers being plastic. I managed to get the crinkle finish(like the Ford GT, GT500 or FRPP 3V valve covers) I wanted though. That took some creativity lol

The plywood is a temporary covering, we have plans to enclose the area with fencing and cover the rollers with steel plate.

Also got my 2G Emission's Inspector License today. Now I can test and repair vehicles, instead of just testing them. Next month I go for my Diesel endorsement as well.

In a few days the Mustang Dyno guy's are supposed to be out to do the final inspections, calibration, and training. I'm stoked. Lol I don't know what my HP/TQ numbers are, but I do know that I'm allowed to find out

The primary purpose of the Dyno will be performing Drive Cycle Monitor setting safely, in controlled conditions. Additionally I'll be able to test diesels since they require loaded Emissions testing, but last and not least the Dyno comes standard with the HP/TQ, 1/4 mile, and top speed testing.

Just another day

Also the control box is masked off because it is going to be repainted to match the walls.

Canon Rebel T3 with a 75-300mm lens. ISO 3200; Shutter speed 1/50; Exposure comp set to darker (-5 or -4). I'm sure if I used a tripod it would have been a clearer-crisper shot. My hand was shaking a little and (gases in the atmosphere) being that I was zoomed in all the way.
