I worked on the car a bit yesterday. I was on my own so I didn't get much done.
The vacuum and oil pressure gauges have been mounted. The sensor wiring has been ran to the engine bay and I removed the plug in the head to put the oil pressure sensor into. I sized up some fittings and need to get a 90 elbow so that I can fit it all behind the coil pack. I got a handful of other small misc. things done as well. Main things is that I'm working on it and making progress!
Gauges. The wiring isn't super pretty, I just wanted to get it all installed so I have the feedback when I start it up. When the car comes home I'll make it all look nice.
New plate. :) It's to perfect.
Oil passage behind the coil pack.

It is nice out! I thought it was going to be crappy and rainy like yesterday. My buddy isn't around this weekend to let me work in the barn, So I can't work on it just yet. :(

Pitch Black SVT
3" of snow in St. Clair this morning. Almost wrecked the pontiac on the way to work. Somebody was sideways in my lane coming at me(2 lane rd). Don't know how I managed to miss him but I did.
Also, this came in the mail today. :)

Well, it's been getting warmer here in Michigan this past week or so. I'm hoping to get out to the car in the next couple weeks and get it on the road!
Things left to do include bolting the header and a few misc things back together. There is a few plugs in the wiring harness that need to be connected and the bumper and hood need to be fully re-assembled. There are a few other odds and ends but that is basically it. I can't wait!

|sbc17||Went out and saw the car the other day. It's starting to get warmer. It was 20F this morning and it is supposed to be in the higher 30's this week. All this means I'm closer and closer to working on the car again. I'm still a couple weeks out from 40* days which is tolerable to work on it. I can't express how excited it feels to be so close!|

|sbc17||So, still nothing new for you guys. It was -19F this morning when I left for work. So it's cold as heck in Michigan right now. Lol. As soon as it's warmer out the progress will continue!|

No new updates for you guys. It's been super cold in Michigan the last week or so. Spring can't come soon enough! Can't wait to et this car running!
Un related update:
I am starting to look for a replacement car for my pontiac. I don't see that car lasting much longer so this summer I'll be buying something newer. Probably a MINI Cooper S. I've always wanted one.

Thanks! On the other hand, I have to say that I'm glad you sold it so I could buy it down the road. This car means so much to me.
