While yesterday was certainly more expensive in ordering a new trailer, today I spent money on the racecar by ordering theĀ various vinyl bits to be stuck to my fresh paint. This breaks down as a quality clear tape for the taillights (Iā€™ve done the old school clear packing tape before, and removing theĀ adhesiveĀ after the thin plastic degrades after a year or so is no fun), some white vinyl to ā€œtapeā€ the headlights, parking lights and side markers, the required sanctioning decals, decals marking tow hooks and the transponder location, minimum weight markings, numbers and class letters and I splurged for my name and an flag for over the driverā€™s door.

Big ticket items still left to buy:

A new seat/ new seat cover andĀ a head and neck restraint device.

Big things left to do:

New outer tie rods and front wheel bearings, to be followed by a trip upĀ to my suspension guy to realign it and setup the corner weights again.

Find a suitable track day or rent out the local track for an hour or two to shake down the car.

Talk to the division licensing chairman and see what heā€™ll make me do to get a competition license again.

Smaller things:
