She's been down since december =/. I keep getting caught up with other things. I was hoping it wouldn't take this long but it seems I'm almost smooth sailing. i'll take some better pictures I guess after I'm on the road. Pretty much any replaceable part has been replaced shy of cracking open the bottom end, Still under budget though.
also: upon further inspection the old reservoir tank seemed to hold enough pressure to to stretch or balloon the underside of the plastic tank. I'm not sure if some kind of coolant pressure cap was the cause of headgasket giving way or a secondary effect of too hot, but that got replaced.




proof of timing ={P

I like "Proof of Timing".

So much nicer than coolant on pistons...

Nice to see it's about ready for the road.

New fogs, These are the mustang ones for a cobra so they are that smoked color instead of the normal clear. Also who ever put in these gawdy blue autozone fogs should be smacked. I need to cut the screws out just to get that bracket out.




Started polishing my lenses then got bored. they're pretty bad. This picture is left is 600 grit, and right is just wiped down.

Busy as usual working so I'm making slow progress. Had a bunch of trouble getting it running. 're timed it a few times. New imrc then plugs the new wires after they started arching.

Then buffed out the fender and headlights



Probably going to paint the bumpers and touch up the drivers door and hatch this winter.
