    I did the headliner in my GTO, what a pain! I swore never again but you know how that goes, I'll probably dive into this one and cuss it the whole way through.

    Made some tweaks to the ignition map in my Megajolt/EDIS ignition. Running very good now.

    Personally if I stole a car, I would obey every traffic law and other law known to avoid suspicion. unless of course the cops were already after me. Think that saying needs to be changed to Drive it like the cops know you stole it.:drive:

    got 95% of my fuel lines in..gotta drill out holes in the new msutang floors for my seats, then make new brackets..lots of test fitting to see how high and where i like to sit :)

    last thing on the fuel line is the short peice from the tank to the pump..not sure how i can flare that witha fitting on it, aint much room to work with..might just cut it flat and weld a fitting?
    then its figure this window situation out and call someone for an install, then it all goes back in...and fire it up :)

    Yesterday I swapped my sport lamp lens from the textured style to the smooth style. Also swap the '70 Mustang battery hold down to the correct Maverick parts.

    Good point. I should be honest and say I drove it like I normally do. :D

    Anyone else love it when the cops pull you over and ask "Is this thing sup'd up or something? Never seen one of these that wasn't slow before."

    Nothing exciting, but gathered some parts to have them powder coated, adjusted the hood and latch, checked the fluids, and then drilled a few tiny holes in the bottom of the lip molding on the hood for water drainage.
