I just had to dump another $65 in that POS Sprite.
I had to replace the rubber elbow for the fuel filler to the tank connection because it was old and you could smell gas all the time when you filled it up. I have already replaced the tank.
Then I also got two new chrome headlight trim rings for the headlights. One of them fell off on a full throttle run across the I-205 bridge not too long after I got it out of the shop I spent $3500 at getting it “Road Worthy”.
At $26 apiece I just got both. They kind of twist on and have one screw at the bottom to hold them on and one of the screws must have fallen out and the vibration and wind took care of the rest.
It’s still pretty damn smokey around here today as you can see.
I took it for another short shake out run a few minutes ago. I still need to bleed the brakes and either bolt the seat down or start cutting out the bad section of floorboard. If I decide to do that then the price is definitely going up.
I am happy to say the transmission seems to be working great but I haven’t had the thing much over 40 mph yet.
Gotta bleed those brakes man.
