And away we go Rachel is off the lift, Driving off under her own power for the first time in a long time. But I am getting ahead of myself. Friday night we looked at a Car for my stepson Josh. His Grandpa is selling his old 2010 Ford Fusion. Well Josh is 6'5" and could not fit and sit in the car comfortably. the car was a good deal so we bought it for the Mechanic, even though she is not driving solo yet and wont be till December. she has plenty of time to get comfortable with the car and we can do some things to it until she is ready. we will register the car so she can learn in it and enjoy driving her car. she is so excited.


Then sunday it was back at the shop to work on the cars there here is another Video of what we did.

Sounds like you've got an exhaust leak on the Mopar. And, the GM as well.
The Fusion is a good safe car. Turtle wax Oxy upholstery cleaner is needed. Will take several applications! Have fun.

If the Fusion hasn't had a tranny service yet, it would be a good idea. The Mopar looks nice.

Nice job. I usually silicone seal around the brackets underneath, and put a little fluid film on all the bolts. Keeps the rusties away.
That's a nice bar, looks good. If you find the cabin is boomy noisy, you can put some dyna mat on the floor under the back seat delete and on the trunk floor. (just use separate pieces on the fuel pump access plates, in case you need to get them out.
Got a hybrid Hans device yet? Or, a regular Hans if you go to harnesses? $1000 brain $1000 helmet and Hans, $10 brain......
Have fun at Daytona, coming down off the banking to the infield section has a high pucker factor.

I put a Watson roll bar in BLLTT, with the FRP X-brace and back seat delete. 2 half days of measuring many times, drilling once and got it right.
Yes, with the back seat delete, the rear music does increase, but I like it.
Look at roll bar padding for any for anywhere helmet-head or arms can hit roll bar. Upper hoop, upper diagonal and horizontal bar between seats.
I put a halon fire bottle on lower diagonal with a Scott Drake mount.
Cool Tech make a great waist harness bracket that replaces the rear bolt in the front seat mount.
Research has shown 2" lap belts work better and hans devices use 2" straps. Schroth makes a 2" 4 pt harness that prevents submarining. I put in 6 pt, with sub straps threaded between seat bottom and back.
Rick should invest in a hans device now. Some track groups (HOD) require a hans device when a harness is used. Comfort is important. Go to a race shop and get fitted. Each model fits different and the price points vary. I got a Schroth.
And flipping the head rest with a paper clip allows the helmet and hans to fit naturally.
The Simpson hybrid hans costs more than more than a regular hans and harnesses.

Yes, roll bar padding, and not the mushy stuff, the real race padding with high density foam. A good fire bottle is required now isn't it?
Most big clubs require a Hans now, PCA, BMW, etc.
