Geeze, I can't stop reading this thread over & over. One of my favorites.
I'm crazy about your estate there also! Coolest shop / barn ever.
But just looking at all of those pavers hurts my back and knees!! Wow.

There has been a 95 Corvette LT1 with auto trans for sale nearby for several months. Started at $2,500 & then $2,000.
Now it's down to $1,800.
Warm but no cigar yet. :)
Run's with scizzor's

Back to posting. ive been slacking..

I fought a power steering leak at the rack and think i have that sorted now.. what a pain... i decided if i was going to pull the engine to do the clutch, id go ahead and do a few upgrades and clean everything up! it has come along nicely!

Engine out and looking filthy.. i guess first things are first... Clutch and a nice healthy bump stick

I now had time to build the air box and finish the intake pipe.. turned into a larger project that i thought it would but it was worth it in the end!
I save money anywhere i can, using old cabinets for scrap metal at times to produce parts haha

Well i hate the factory style wipers.. they are outdated and the pin style. so i decided to make them into a j hook style and open my options on wiper blades!

I also didnt like the way the relay cover looked so i decided to make a new one.. first coating it in mirror black but i didnt like that either so i went satin instead!

So i used these from a 2000 s10

and cut the end off

The C-pillar trim on the outside was looking rather rough as well, and so were my door panels still.. so it was time to give them a refresh!
