Fantastic work with your Jalpa.   Great job.  You are a source of inspiration for my own Jalpa project.  Great work and great documentation.

Oh, another Jalpa?  Nice!  What's the status on yours?

Currently installing a high lift kit for the garage door so that I can install a hoist to enable some easier wrenching / restoration underneath the Jalpa.

I've been told it'll be in the print tomorrow.  So i'll have to snag a shot and grab several issues.

Wow that's a great interview and the photos are perfect. So awesome you and the car are getting that recognition. Something to show the grandkids someday maybe.

I agree that was a cool article. Great to see you got some recognition, outside of here and the Lamborghini forums, for the huge amount of effort you put in.

I picked up about 10 copies of the Wall Street Journal today.  Feels weird seeing it in print lol.  Page A10 if anyone finds a copy.

Enjoyed the story and the pics. Bonus content: the correct pronunciation of “Jalpa”.

I wanted to take a pic like this all day.  But I want to raise a glass of scotch to everyone who has been so incredibly motivating and supportive of my restomod.  I truthfully waited 32 years for a moment like this, because it's something I've wanted to do since I was a little kid.  

But with dealing with clinical depression and anxiety I had my days where I wanted to give up, or felt overwhelmed, or just didn't even want to get out of bed.  The kind words, this community, along with LamboPower were an enormous drive for me.  

This truly is a very special community and I have you to thank for the random bits of advice, motivation, the kind words.  You're all stellar humans here at GRM.

So here's a glass of scotch and a cigar, to a now restored status car, but still a car that I'm far from done with.

Been a while since i updated.  Good news, the GPS is fully calibrated for the speedo.  Currently trying to find a way to tie it into the logger and get the stepper to properly read out on the speedo.  Operation "update this thing to the 21st century" is on the way!  The local paper caught wind of the wallstreet journal article and came by to do an article on it.  I'll have to snag a pic, really cool that my home town wanted to do something on it.

I'm currently dealing with clutch issues.  It would appear that in my infinite wisdom of being in a hurry, I forgot to put locking nuts on the guide tube and it has backed off 4mm and now the clutch will not disengage fully, so it won't go into gear when the car is running.  Frustrating as hell. 

My options are: Attempt to remove slave cylinder and rod and try to get the nuts on it and align it (pain in the ass) or drop the motor again and pull the transmission and do it out.  Work has been insane so I haven't had time.  Gonna try sunday... have a date for the first time in a while on saturday (she seems to be able to put up with my nerdy obsession with cars).

Even if she hates you, she went on a date with a dude who's got a lambo. That's status E36 M3 right there.

I have been following your thread for at least a year. Finally came back after a few months off to see where this is at and it's finished! Man, the sound from it is excellent! Great work! Many congrats. Love the interior with the white piping!
