    Finishing the exhaust tail pipes, 2.5" behind the tires. This is my first time welding with a cheap wire welder.

    Went to the turkey rod run at the Daytona Speedway. Saw 6 Mavericks/Comets. Picked up a few things at the swap meet too! Snagged the medallion for $3! 65A3844F-346A-4479-B255-21AC1E29E14D.jpeg 85F7EA92-58E0-4A29-8953-A87954A27A90.jpeg

    Darn near finished the cross member for my five speed swap. Stuck it in to make sure it kept the correct angle and it only changed by .2%. 20191128_094245.jpg 20191128_100100.jpg

    Thanks! I still have some trimming to do and need to add a couple pieces on the opposite side to sandwich the support it bolts to. Believe it or not, I cut all the pieces and slotted the holes with a jig saw. Worked way better than I thought it would an metal that thick.

    Jegs had a screaming deal on a painless harness for my 5.0 swap so got it ordered. Arrived today and as I was reading instructions, realized I had tossed a critical sensor (barometric) from the donor car. It was up under the dash as I was stripping the harness, it got tossed. . So glad I went this route, probably never would have figured out that sensor wasn't talking to the computer.

    Working on getting my Digi-tails wired up. Got a hot wire ran from the fuse panel and started soldering in the new wire harnesses. Still more to go but can't wait to see them on the car.

    Had to extricate the car from what was left after the snow collapsed my pop up garage. Thankfully, the air cleaner was on the roof to prevent crushing. Laziness: 1/Pop Up Garage: 0

    Been meaning to replace this bit of fuel line under the driver floor. The clamps disintegrated upon removal. One of those cases where rust really was holding it all together.

    Did U change the one at the tank? If not, it's probably in the same shape.
