  1. Yes, I transposed my words. Brain fart. I love film for those very reasons. I’m a zone system guy so I learned that system first and spent a lot of time understanding the characteristic curve. By the time I figured it out digital came along in filmmaking and film all but died. Now, people light by monitor and you have a DIT guy wrangling data. Looks like a good way to make a living.

  5. There are some really nice shots in there. You probably figured out that film doesn’t have the dynamic range or latitude that digital has. Typically when I shot film, I would over expose negative 1/3 of a stop and sometimes I would underexpose reversal 1/3. I do this to dig into the shadows.Kodak likes to sell film speed so I think they fudge the numbers a bit.

    I got the carb on and it screams for a little 4 banger. The throttle linkage from Ireland Engineering worked great. I had no idea this carb would make that much difference. The 32/36 was old and worn out and the 38/38 is brand new so I did expect some improvement but not as much as it did. I had no idea this car was this quick. I know now. Tomorrow I’m getting the front end aligned after new front end kit. I need motor mounts. The fan is crashing into the radiator. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think I like it better. The throttle linkage is 180 off so I needed to get a new one. It runs great and it growls when I rev it. Just can’t drive it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. How do you get 4 out? I’m making way too many gouges?
  9. I’m just gouging this thing. Does the cover include the center plastic, the metal ring and TID the plastic around the metal ring?

    Something seems 180 degrees off here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I’m in the garage as we speak attempting to run my gas line through the firewall as we speak. The old hose is still in there for the most part. I’ve loosened it the best I can but it takes some tugging to move it. The carpet is out but The firewall still has the composite insulation. I tried to remove it but there is a clip at the top holding it in place. What’s the best way to tackle this? Thanks

    I think I found the culprit to a few issues I was having including the cabin smelling like gasoline. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
