No updates on the hoo ride today BUT I stopped at sears outlet center to look for a wrench set when I noticed the Craftsman Industrial 300pc Mechanic Set. 60% off sale had me curious. I almost pooped as the lady said 199.99!!! Had to have it. Only trouble is…I dont have a toolbox big enough. Time to upgrade!

Cleaned up the upper a bit.

Digggzzz. I took a bunch of brackets off of the car to get ready to clean things up a bit. Got a new water pump, clearcoated it. Ordered the power steering relocation bracket
Hopefully going to powerwash the bay tomorrow and get ready to put it all back together. Want it running next weekend.

11/1/2012 – Wired

Still going strong on the wire tuck. I’d say its 60% done. First time doing this and it wasn’t too bad.
Heres a quick before and what I got so far.

10/31/2012 – Tuckin

Made some progress since last post. I removed the cracked radiator and the battery tray to get ready to install a new rad and relocate the battery to the trunk. Deleted some emissions crap and realized the car needs a wire tuck. So I started on that. Time consuming to say the least but it’s moving along. Car needs the motor pulled and engine bay cleaned/painted something SERIOUS. (this weekend?) Anyways here are some snapshots as she sits now.
