now thats a cool idea as the electric motor will provide a constant pressure unlike a belt drive one.. as we all know at idle, belt drive will be not as flash ! 

 i look forward to pics of how your hook it up :cheers:

Well done andy 

are you happy with how it’s running ? 

Yes it sounds pretty good, ran it again today about a half an hour but since i don't have any sheet metal on in the front i can't drive it so fingers crossed,  no on to the fenders and other stuff in the front.

Got a new pump for the compressor because they don't have any spare parts for my old one so back in business but it has been raining pretty bad for the last couple of days and since i have to be out on the driveway I'll have to wait,is supposed to be better this weekend.

I'll take the rain over what they have had in the Midwest and on the east coast anytime.

I'll have to figure out what and how much to do with the outside of the car, it's not getting painted for now but maybe I can clean it up and make it look a little bit better, I'm no body guy so any Ideas?

He was always called Sunny because he's so bright!   Don't have the backstory on the Fitzy nickname.

Wire brushed the inside of the fenders and at least got them primered.

Found this oil based primer, i was surprised that you could still buy it with all the regulations.  Fired the engine up a few times over the weekend and it sounds pretty good, got the narrower belt installed an it definitely works better,

Cool part about the dent Andy, is that you can fix that no problem!, these cars have really nice steel to work with./cdn-cgi/mirage/d0d7b897c25fd0e39d513e1f86efac0d067aaea4978f01975f03818c57b48a29/1280/https://theme.foreverpontiac.com/emoticons/default_cheers.gif

Yeah no kidding, my wife's car was hit in a parking lot and it's a 2000 something and what a thin can.

Did a little test on the front fender to so see if I could clean up the paint a bit.
