Well, Snapfish didn't work for long so photos are now here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/team_illuminata/albums/72157675062456295


We've actually been working on the car recently. You know how we said it used to be owned by Oakland University? Well a group of students from there were visiting the shop, saw it and got very excited about fixing it up. How could we say "no"? So what did we achieve? Well we got the engine running, sort of.

This resulted in us compiling a long list of things to take care of before attempting to get it running properly:

Some of which we have been working on. First, the leaking fuel cell:

We bought a replacement from ATL but it came without the built-in surge tank and the hole is not in the center.

Not to worry; we think we can make it work. Stay tuned.
