Default Kirk and the Enterprise

Well.. Kirk got ahold of me on the communicator a while back and scheduled some maintenance time for the Enterprise. It seems that a newer Romulan attack ship outclassed the Enterprise and hence..maintenace was required.

Before Kirk arrived...Petimus Prime rolled in and while waiting for Kirk... TFC, myself, Matt (Advance) and Nick (Advance) knocked out a gas tank swap on mine and a trans service on Petes.

Somehow..our data recorder was missing, which explains the lack of pictures.

Kirk finally got the ship docked and work commenced.

Nice! Is it running? Also did you get a chance to narrow down your boost issue yet?

Give a call!

Well, I left last night around 8 and Kirk was waist deep in exhaust. We (Pat, Petimus Prime, and I) knocked out three 00+ solid motor mounts. Pete helped me do a trany service (I think he'* a pro now ) and I did a SC service. Bill took some pics.... All in all a very productive day.

We also did a junkyard run in the morning.

We've been quite busy..

Overall..it'* not a bad car to work on as far as space is concerned. Here'* the rundown. Headers, rockers, springs, valve seals, push rods. Then change out a few other parts/bolts that were bugging me. Yes..me

Anyone that was here will understand this one...but Enrique just jumped when Barney hollered "OW!!" Guess he shouldn't have kicked the little guy.

On with the pics
