Sorry the pictures are big, they came right off my phone.

And will probably go rip some parts off the one in the garage.

yea it has some problems im hoping to figure out and fix soon. it has an exhaust leak where the header that's next to the firewall meets the crossover pipe but that's the only leak i know of right now. im hoping its something simple causing it to sound kind of like a tractor but it has a miss at idle too and ive checked all the injectors and spark plugs and found no problems and i replaced the icm and there was no difference.

Replaced the clutch slave cylinder from Rodney Dickman and bled the clutch line. Took forever to get all the air out! I guess I was pumping the clutch pedal faster than I thought. VERY slow is best! I put the one-man bleeder container up so I could see it in the rearview mirror and kept pushing air bubbles out, refilling the reservoir, and periodically pulling the piston inward to get additional air pockets out. Done but not my favorite task.

I've got a set of 88 GT wheels for my 88 V8 coupe. I removed the clear coat and polished the lips, repainting the black mesh tonight. No rest for the wicked.

Started my hood vent modification. Going slow since my glass skills are lacking! More pics in my build thread. Got to thank Carver1 for his dimensions to get me started.

Caused the mouse that ate holes in my car cover to die. He destroyed my stuff. I am sure that his death was not pleasant. I found him in my driveway this morning.

I started it up and let it warm up and then backed it in and out of the garage a few times.

I also spent a lot of time thinking about throwing it up for sale when spring comes around......

got extremely pissed off at it. first it decided it didnt want to go into reverse anymore then while i was driving down the highway slowing down in traffic a clip in the shifter decided it wanted to pop off making me lose 1st and second gear. luckily i was pretty close to a napa so i had to ride the clutch in 3rd gear to get to napa and they let me use some tools to get the clip back in. needless to say i was very unhappy and im putting it away for a while before i feel like driving it again.

Oh, and ordered some racing seats for it!

Searched the Web for some decent D/S rotors and ceramic pads for my XTC! I really need to bite the bullet and just order the parts!

Also gathered some screws for the "Joel Project" - I'll have to go to the mega pull tomorrow and get some off a car. I did not have as many as I thought I did! I needed an excuse to go scrounge for parts anyway.
