Little bit of work done over the weekend. Nothing directly to the car though lol. Got my 1gn valve cover 70% stripped of the old paint, and found a donor antenna that I cut short, and am now prepping to paint.

Went to the junkyard today and had some good luck. Found a 1gn valve cover to paint, fuelrail cover to paint + put my custom sticker on, and trunk lid carpet. Getting a new windshield tomorrow, and might be ordering a set of new headlights soon. Huzzah!

Took the time to wash, and clay the front of my car this weekend, so I snapped a few pics. I pulled out the fog light covers to see how I like running it without them, and also wet sanded the headlights while I was there (they will just yellow again). I pulled the front badge so I can paint part of ...

Well, gonna try Lucas Powersteering stuff in for my rack. Got a co-worker here who had a MASSIVE leak from his old trucks gearbox that was all but stopped by Lucas. I figure for 10 bux it's worth a shot, if it messes up the rack I need a new one anyway. :D And, if it works then I can go start gettin...

Wow! It's been a long while

Been a ginormously long time. Been driving and neglecting my car, but now getting to the point where I want to give it some attention again. Starting to seriously look at getting my clutch done as it's still the original (200,000 plus miles). I'm also starting to put together a game plan to rebuild ...

Where'd you find the chart ?

My car is at or above 3k at 70. I always assumed it has a 3.55, but that seems a little high to me.

I myself didn't use clearcoat on the valve cover...I did, however, use it on my injector cover. I used the DupliColor's High Temp engine enamel clearcoat. Works very well and gives a very high-gloss look, but the valve cover came out SO good, I didn't use any and still looks fantastic without it. O...
