Found and fixed a nasty oil leak.

It was the oil filter of all things.
I tightened it a couple of days ago with no change. When I removed it, the seal looked fine. A new filter doesn't leak, however.
The leaking filter was a Mobil1 filter. The replacement was my preferred Pure One brand.

Ripped out the non-working stock stereo, re-did all the in-dash stereo wiring (someone had butchered it pretty good) installed the single DIN adapter so when the wiring harness for my stereo gets here i can just pop it right in.

They are custom made by Humount. I highly recommend them. You will have to take apart the console and make changes to the skeleton, though.

I have the Humount faceplate in my 88 GT and I never took apart the skeleton. There is a rear radio mount for the original radio that has to be removed, but that was done fairly easy.

Got firmly fed up with my driver side exterior door handle tried several times to put the self-cutting nuts back on the studs only to have them pop right back off when the door handle was operated. Stuck some trim mounting tape on there and just have to remember to pull the door with my free hand and not by the handle.

I bought a new fiero today! It's an 87gt with a 3800sc, needs a lot of little things, but overall I think its going to be a blast.

My wife said she wants the engine to sound lumpy

I sold my '88 GT, got the asking price, so I guess I'm happy with that. I already miss it, I was going to a car show tonight.

Oil pan gasket replacment in a 2.5 Indy....man was it a PITA! Chasing down a problem with it stuttering under load but needed to start with the oil leak problem. We did the TBI gasket as well as a starting point for the chase. The EGR ports under the TBI unit had very little carbon buildup so that rules that one out. Gasket looked great but we replaced it anyway since we had a new one.

Started sanding the front fascia of my '87 Coupe. I bought the car on January 1, 2011 and thought my Quad 4 swap would be done by now. Instead, I'm just getting ready to start, and am taking care of miscellaneous other tasks while gathering parts.

Finally found what the freaking problem was with my indy...bad wire and or plug arcing across the heatshield on #2 cyl. New Delco plugs and wires. Of course, this is after 5 days of swapping all sorts of parts like distributors and throtttle bodies trying to track down the power loss problem. Sheesh. We also did an oil pan gasket change out as I had some oil leaking from the passenger side of the pan.
