14 Days Till Departure

Welcome to a sneak peak behind the scenes look at pre-race car preparation for Gingerman in a couple weeks. Hint: long ass lists help sometimes. This To-Do list is online so we can look up things on the smarphone music player device in the garage, after the alcohol kicks in and someone inevitably loses the notebook with the original list. Lists on paper are so 2003 anyway.
Fresh EBC bluestuff brakes - Done.
Redo all the seat hardware in Grade 8 - Done.
Replace the wacky rear diffuser with lightweight HDPE. The old one is heavier than the sun and although in this photo makes the car look like a super cool James Bond submarine, this car needs some lightness added. -- Done
Replace the glass windows with polycarbonate/lexan.
Modify the front hoodscoop to...actually....work....hopefully.
Install our new set of Direzza ZII tires (drool).
Well, that's easy enough, practically ready to race! There were a few other things though that didn't make it onto the info-pointy-graphic...because the MS Paint trial period limits to 7 arrows per picture. It definitely counted one of those as two, but I'll list the rest quickly here anyway.
