Oasis's car in the DTM shop for an upgrade
 
Dennis drove her down from MD to get a 2056/RAT B Transaxle and some gauges, etc. And we jumped right on it. Type 1 is out. old apron is off, new Euro style FI apron is welded in and she is ready to go to the paint shop to have it and the front spoiler painted so we can get bake to the conversion. It should make it debut at Taccoa.

It took longer to drive me to the Amtrak station than to do this. ;)

(I found out why Atlanta, home to a monstrous airport, has such a rinky-dink train station. Only two passenger trains pass through each day. One goes New Orleans to New York; the other New York to New Orleans. The rest of the track traffic is CSX freight. Also, within 45 minutes after you dropped me off, it was packed like a sardine can with everyone yelling at each other in something sort of resembling English.)

I will get some pix. I forgot my camera every day so far:eek:
I did get Kevin's wife to take a shot of the car with the apron removed. I hope Bobby can get it in to shoot the apron and spoiler by Thurs so we can get with it this weekend.

Usually a show gets me excited because I can't wait to see the other cars. This time I can't wait to see mine. :p

I'm sorry yours won't be ready this time around but I look forward to meeting you. :)

Good to hear that oasis is finally getting his "type 4 fix"..

It's looking like Toccoa is going to be Type 4 heaven... Maybe even Herbie extreme will be making an appearance there, in front of the RAT booth..

If only Beth's car could be there.

I thought I read elsewhere you were getting up at 0500 so it could be there. :confused:

massIVe 79 vert August 23rd 2006 13:08

No, he's trying to have it ready before the Euro Auto Fest show in South Carolina in October. NO WAY it will be finished up for Toccoa :bawling:

Oasis, it will be cool to meet another club member in person.

NO_H2O August 24th 2006 23:10

She will be headed for the paint booth tomorrow.:agree:
Too bad it will go on a trailer to get there.

Hey, better it is on a trailer with no engine than after it gets one. :D

Oasis,
Glad to hear that your project is moving forward I am looking forward to seeing all of the GL cars at Toccoa....

oasis August 26th 2006 02:43

Thanks! Things are closer to within budget monetarily even if the timetable has been stepped up a bit -- which isn't all bad. I'll be out of the stock and into new that much sooner.

One week down, two weeks to go 'til I'm Amtrakin' to my DTM'd Type 4. :cool:

zen August 26th 2006 12:33

very cool. i am thrilled for you. you are going to love it. glad you are making it to Taccoa as well. i have to get on my car today and take care of a gasket leak at my alt stand from the swap we did last year AT the Taccoa show. it just started spewing a few weeks ago.

looking forward to seeing everyone. remember to bring your GermanLook.com member badges so those who don't know each other can find each other. then again, you hang out at Jake's area long enough and everyone passes by there sooner or later.
