It wont take long to finish her out. I'm really just hung up waiting on others. Car is actually running already, cruise tune should be relatively easy. :)

AC will be nice to have, but I'm pretty accustom to not having it, its the humidity that gets you in these parts :)

I Installed all new AC parts last fall, but inadvertently over oiled the system. I've got to drain a little oil and have it recharged. Just hope it holds vaccum again!

I just ordered my parts to fix the oil pressure issue....then an hour later I get a call from the bank saying they have to freeze my account because of an unauthorized transaction in NJ. Bad timing as I have a bunch of parts on order now lol.

I have a clutch that needs put in. Trying to find volunteers to help. I'm certainly not good with clutches. I haven't done one yet. We shall see how this goes.

Oh, I forgot. Gotta get 2 more tires. I have a set of new outter tie rod ends on their way. Will need to get everything lined up after that. Need to change trans fluid (will do that with clutch install). Need to change out diff fluid. Of course an oil change. Decals after waxing. The list is long and time is getting short. I have plenty of volunteers for everything else. First item to check off is getting this clutch in as that would probably not survive the rally.
