    Didn't get some parts I needed to do any real work on the cars...

    Made a Pick-N-Pull run yesterday and got the one thing I had on my list and several other small items.

    Those cars sure look good. I jsut cant get over the rickety-ness of them. I dont understand why a NB convertible feels more rigid

    the first one that Paco road tested, he came back and told me there was a major problem with the suspension or something. I drove it and it was totally normal. He was shocked.

    Gave it some fresh Lubrimoly Premium 5W-40 and a new filter, took out the rodent-chewed hood liner, and counted the bugs I killed driving home from school on Monday. After I get back from Leavenworth/apartment hunting in Seattle next week, I'll hopefully get around to wiring up the rear parking lights...

    Tomorrow I will hunt down some exhaust flex pipe to replace about a 3 foot section of the exhaust on my truck.
    While i'm out i'll also try to pick up some connectors for some of the wiring bits.

    Finished up my front suspension. Have to rebuild the power steering.
    Hopefully I'll get that done tomorrow.

    Took it to a car show, followed by replacing some parts. Metal reinforced exhaust hangers, e-brake cable, and shift lever bushings. I never want to go through that again...

    I already had fronts customer throw aways. The rears are pretty blown, I didn think they would be that bad, but after driving it to LW, I think they are shot. Time to call FK tomorrow and see how much they want to rebuild them.
