Late Model In Make Up Room
2014 Late Model
Creative Edge To Letter Our Late Model For Wednesday.
I'm a little late on this post, it's 2 days old, but been crazy busy with so much going on. Buttons and I dropped off our Late Model at Creative Edge on Monday for Steve and the boys to do their magic. It will be very similar to our Camaro show car.......... Steve will make your race car look the way you want, and if you're not sure what you want, he and his team will make something awesome to show case your car, sponsors and sport........this weekend is practice day at Sunset, but our car is a long ways from being ready, still a lot of things to do and not sure they will get done by the weekend. Going to do what I can and if we get the car ready 100%, we'll go, if not we will make it for Sunday or Opening Day and practice then. I like to make practice, it's a great opportunity to shake the car down, but there isn't enough hours in the day to get it all done...........We will keep our site up dated with the latest if we make practice in the Late Model...........Laruen is pumped to get some practice in the Mini Stock and I'm hoping to take her to Flamboro so she can get oriented to her new surroundings. The Honda will be much different than the Go-Cart :)........Gehrig will be driving the Mini opening night and then Lauren takes over for all the regular races, Gehrig will drive in all the Invitationals and other specials in Ontario throughout the year............Our Mod is getting some much needed work done to it, brakes, and suspension, things I knew had to be addressed, pictures on that will be up soon. We have a little more time before things start to move with our OSCAAR hot rod......thanks for dropping by, please support our sponsors whenever possible
Jesus Did It All
God Loves Us This Much
Easter is one of two Christian events that millions around the world celebrate. Christmas is the first, a time when we rejoice at the birth of the King, our Savior. However, He came to bring us life and that life was only possible through His death. We all sin and fall short, but through Jesus obedience, even unto death on the cross, He has paid our transgressions against God. He was referred to as the "Lamb of God", in John 1:29 when John the baptizer said "Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world".......The Jews when to the temple at Passover to sacrifice animals to atone for their sins, but their sins were never taken away, only covered over. Jesus was the final sacrifice, who would remove the sting of sin, the spiritual death. He was perfect, unblemished and therefore the only One ever qualified to satisfy God's desire in the cleansing of this evil world. What He did on the cross was to show His love for us, His resurrection showed His power over death, that the grave could not hold Him, and because of Him, because of what He did, and His power over death, if we follow Him, we can live forever in Heaven, that's His promise! Happy Easter :)
Late Model Makes Our Pre Season Kick Off
Pre Season Kick Off, LM Not Lettered, But Joins The Rest Of Our Cars For Special Event
What a hectic week getting ready for our Pre Season Kick Off. The hard work paid off, it was a great day, I will post pictures on that soon........Meanwhile, our Late Model got a fantastic paint job by Jim Sweers and will head to Creative Edge next Monday, the 21st for lettering. I have posted some pictures of the painting of our LM on "Diary of a Season 2014".......Our Modified is at Oakville Trailers and will get a suspension set up from Ron Easton. We have new shocks coming, I didn't get the shocks that were on the Mod from 2013, I knew they were not part of the deal, but thanks to Jeff Walt and Brian MacDonald, we will be geared up by the end of the week with shocks for the Mod. It also needs the brakes bled and some other things, but Ron wants to scale it and set it up for us, and I'm good with that, he raced these cars for 4 years in the U.S. The Modified also has a different style sway bar that we will need to learn how to adjust and Ron will show us that as well......Tonight the LM was scaled, not permanent, but for total weight and left side. Rule changes for 2014 allow us to go from 55% left side to 55.5% and our totals have been reduced 25 pounds from 2850 to 2825 after a heat race and 2800 after the feature. We are close right now, the led has to be bolted in and then final scale done by the end of the week. Then we load the LM for lettering......More pictures like this one, from Sunday, will be on our Message Board by tomorrow night
Just Like A Model Car
Jim, Chris Randy and Bob Slide Body Over Chassis....I Take The Picture
While the body was off Jim and Bob got three items of welding done, easy access and then the chassis was power washed by Jim. Once that was done the boys installed the body and I got a good picture of it....I didn't take too long so I could run back and help :).......there are more pictures of the paint and assembly on Diary of a Season 2014.......I will start posting pictures of our event later today. It was an awesome success, thank you Lord.
Paint Scheme Finished
Three Color Paint Scheme Done On Late Model
Jim Sweers finished the paint on our Late Model on Friday. It was a different paint scheme this year, 3 colors, more difficult, but he did it the way I wanted and I am very happy with how it looks. Jim also painted the inside of the car as well making it look clean. More pictures to come....I have been crazy busy getting caught up and preparing for our big event this past weekend, more on that soon as well.
