    No maintenance, but I drove it in to work to meet with a new owner I work around and check out his and show him some things on mine.
    He just bought it from DMCMW recently. His is Parzival, mine is Mcfly.

    finished installing DPI joshes lower Control Arm supports and.....now I need an alignment, but I ended up having to take half my front end off due to being a dum dum so its my fault not the supports. Amazing product by the way. Once i find time to do this steering shaft from borgeson installed, im pumped up to drive. As soon as California mails me my title~~

    Installed a stock steering wheel. My car had an aftermarket racing wheel when I bought it and I switched it to one of the knock off Momo wheels shortly after. The smaller wheel really made it feel like I was driving a go-kart and it was always annoying that it blocked my view of most of the gauges. The stock wheel makes a HUGE difference - makes the lack of power steering far less noticeable.

    I started putting my mixture unit back in and found the hose from the idle motor to the pipe of agony is pretty much cut off. DMCH has no stock.

    Looks like DPI and DeLoreango have them (looks like a new part). This is such a sharp bend I don't think a non-molded hose would work. Now I have to look what else I may need since I hate to pay $15 shipping for a $13 hose.

    I finished hooking up all the fuel lines and every thing bolted down except the idle motor and that torn hose..... OH NO...the distributor rotor is sitting on the pontoon.

    I was able to pull the mixture unit enough just removing the two fuel return lines and the few bolts holding it down to install the rotor.

    Engine Bay Light Now Working.

    Just replaced the Engine Bay bulb with an LED and found the light switch glue had parted. Reglued and now a working light. Finally finished the Outer Door Rubber Seals install. Pain in the butt job! Trying to get anything to stick to the fiberglass.... All manner of items were used to secure the seals in place long enough for the RTV to cure. I used Sikasil RTV Acetic Cure glue but could not get it in black. Had to use clear but it has come up looking pretty good, better than the old peeling, perished seals that were there.

    Pulled the binnacle and installed all LEDs with the help of Christians advice here on the forum. Myc ar is now 100% LED even the ac panel minus ofc the battery bulb lol. I think i found out the issue with my temp gauge not working. it can spin freely and do complete circles around the gauge with no resistance. The voltage gauge when carefully touching it does not. Therefore I guess I will be ordering a new gauge since the temp sender was replaced in 2015. I also pulled out the covers in the bonnet to get to the steering shaft to install my new one but it was too late to install. Few of the m5 bolts are stripped, so after removal ill have to buy a few more. Fun productive day!
