Default Re: Effigy's history

So I got a stupid idea today.. instead of having someone holdthe gas pedal down for me, I pushed it down, clamped some vise grips on the cable so it couldn't go back up, and finished the installation.

Had to pour a few ounces of sea foam and a fresh gallon of gas into the tank, but after some struggling I got it started again!

The carbs need some tuning (don't they always..) but I was able to take it to pick the kid up from school. :D

Also installed the passenger side door panel.
