Got the SVT back up and driving around. Had to take the spindle to the machine shop since the ABS sensor bolt broke off. I tried drilling it out but just ended up breaking every drill bit just about. Said screw it and took and had them mess with it. They had to grind it a little but got the bolt out. I also had them clean all the threads and bolts since I was having a helluva time putting the bolts in and out (had to remove the hub a few times due to problems I ran into with the sensor and forgetting to put the dust shield on once lol). So I got that all together on Tuesday and then yesterday took the SVT for an alignment..twice. The steering wheel was crooked so I have them try to fix it. It's still off more than I like but it's straight enough for now. Haven't really gotten to flog it too much but it feels good so far. Raymond and I are going to change the timing belt on Sunday so I don't have to worry about it busting on me and leaving me stranded half way from Texas. Then it should be ready for the 'fest.

Well all car projects requiring the purchase of additional materials will be on hold indefinitely :( :(. Projects that can be completed with materials I already have will be able to be worked on :).

Had an unpleasant situation with some old stuff pop up that caught me by surprise big time. Can't get into details but its way worse than i thought so I gotta use most my extra money for the next 4-5 months to hopefully get things squared away. Will probably be a homebody to also cut expenses.

So after this Saturdays meet you guys probably won't see me for awhile.
