    I don't want you to drive it. You'll get it dirty.

    Super impressed at how quickly this all came together. I'll say it again.. We gotta meet up for a 90s style drive.

    7/30: 7 hours- all back together.

    - Reinstalled and aligned the rear bumper
    - Aligned and tightened up the exhaust
    - Filled oil at just shy of 11qt Redline 10W40, coolant, and flushed brake/clutch
    - Started it up and commenced bleeding the cooling system. A couple of minor leaks, a very slightly loose clamp to a radiator hose, and then a loose clamp to a hose in the valley under the intake manifold, which was a major pain to access, but some ingenuity with long screwdrivers, socket flex extensions, lighting, blind photography, and an afternoon of cursing in between engine cool-downs proved to be the winning recipe in resolving the seepage, getting the clamp repositioned and tightened. It seems that the hose/neck junctions on this car need to be tight in order to fully seal under pressure... more so than other cars I've seen.

    With that fixed, the fender liners went back in and last underbody panels went back on . Just need some non-threatening weather to give it a full test drive.

    The decatted Capristo is LOUD, holy smokes. I have it initially set to the valves-closed mode, and it is quite an angry sounding beast. Very racey, raucous at idle. A total transformation from the stock attitude. I can't imagine what the sound will be like in person at full revs with the Challenge chips. Pretty much an accurate depiction, though a little bit of the in-person 'edge' is lost through video:

    For sure, that would be a blast.

    A fresh elec hazard sticker for the shock mount by the electrical mains junction to go with the new hardware:


    Fresh wheel liners in place:

    Great work can't wait to see it
    I am not a 14 year old girl, but I play one on the internet.
