    Viper's front wheel bearing was making some awful noises (see my Instagram story for video). Luckily it's SUPER easy to replace as the front bearing is an entire assembly and only requires 4 bolts to swap out (after caliper & rotor come off).













    fruit of my labor (pretty sure this is the first time a bearing replacement has a positive effect on the exterior of the car)

    I love the fact the Viper has the same bearing/spindle type of a truck

    For some reason my brain read the plate on that early 308 as P3nis

    This shop looks amazing, the hanging engine lid contemplates it greatly, lol.

    Fabrication for all the brakes are now complete. So here are some shots.

    Front rotor comparison:

    Rear rotor comparison:

    Rear brake bracket was a nightmare to make, but the machinist was able to come up with a solution.


    Completed rear suspension, brake, wheel and tire assembly


    In other news, the Viper had a u-joint strap fail on a WOT 1-2 shift and took out an axle and the rear diff. So 3 of my 4 cars are officially in the air.

    Less than 36 hours after the Viper deaded itself we have it back on the road. Only needed a new differential assembly (yolks not available & the axle took a chunk out of the mount), a new rear axle and u-joints.

    Flat spotted the front tires with a hard stop (non-ABS). Swapped them to the back and did a quickie burnout to fix issue. Second gear has a bit of wheel speed.

    Took the DMC out for lunch today, it was all good. Such an easy car to drive.



    On the way home, hit a big bump and a few hundred feet later it dies. Definitely fuel related.





    Talk to my buddy who got it road worthy and explained how there was a part of the fuse box with a melted housing for a 20AMP fuse and thought that was the likely issue, he threw in a spare 20AMP fuse in case there was a future issue. I check it and bingo, fuse popped.



    New fuse in and I'm off. 4 miles down the road it popped again.



    Something moved when I hit that bump and is grounding out the fuse for the fuel pump. Time to hunt that down.

    It was the frequency valve. Deleted it and installed a fitting with a .009 hole to mimic the valve. Up and running again.

    DMC is back from the detailer, who did an especially great job with the glass and revived the louvers.
