I'm back at it!  At the end of last year I had the glue on the hood duct fail.  Well, not really the glue...I painted the duct before gluing it in and the glue stuck to the paint but the paint did not stick to the duct.  The result was a broken windshield and some minor scratches.  The scratches buffed out, and I am in the process of modifying a replacement windshield. 

I did start it up and warm it up good, it only took 3 pulls (fired on the second).  I have some 3/4" picks and chisels on the way to replace the trail studs that are in it now.  I am going to shave the lugs on the track down to 1/2".  I have 120 picks coming, and 24 chisels.  Is that going to be enough?

Bummer on the glue fail.  I can't remember if  I used epoxy or fiberglass resin on ours.

As far as the number of studs.  We have been running 44 per track.  So 144 sounds like plenty.
