    Talk about rites of passage! Here's the work so far:

    - New tires front rear
    - New flexible brake lines, bled brakes. Fortunately the PO replaced all calipers.
    - Dave's RPM and fan fail relay
    - Full relay panel refresh. Found the changeover relays here.
    - Headlight switch replaced
    - Mode switch rebuilt and AC working (found low pressure switch contact corrosion)
    - Steering bushing installed
    - AC clutch clamping diode installed
    - Console removed
    - Header tank installed
    - LEDs installed front and side...
    - One new front speaker
    - Modified aux lighting relay to bring AC panel lights on only with headlight switch
    - Drained coolant, started stripping rotten old rubber hoses
    - Found (and made work) automatic antenna "easter egg"
    - Bypassed a crispy #7 (sounds like a takeaway order) with a Klixon 20a pull type breaker.
    - Grease and new boots on steering ball joints

    Next few weeks:
    - Accumulator and line (yes it is original)
    - Fuel lines. Fortunately it has a new fuel pump and filter
    - Clutch line- braiided
    - Blower motor (banshee scream)
    - Rad Fan motors
    - Silicone hose refresh- entire cooling system
    - Fiberglass repair to engine cover
    - Rad auto bleeder kit
    - New exterior mirror glass
    - Spark plugs, distro cap, rotor
    - Front end recall kit
    - Figure out rear speakers/amp and decide whether to sent Craig radio out for bluetooth upgrade...
    - Shield brackets
    - Battery cutoff (or master relay) mod
    - Tail light boards
    - LED headlamps
    - Alternator
    - Possibly Stage 1 exhaust
