    Last winter project while car is still on jack stands............I removed the Auto-Trans diagnostic plug from the engine firewall and "fished it" down after clipping all the tie-straps holding the wiring harness to the A/C low pressure hose. This will give me extra length in removing the transmission governor from the side of the final drive. Now I can remove the transmission circuit board next to the car, looking down on my (work to be) , while un-soldering the old board and replace with one that has the failed parts replaced.
    Governor comes off tomorrow, then the un-soldering begins!

    Not a thing, but I did see it in the garage. Perhaps I will get a chance to light the mighty PRV this weekend.

    If you get a chance, take a couple of pics! I always like seeing shots of the original and repaired boards ever since I was in there on 2234.

    Not today but recently

    1. I took the car to Orlando and had Tint put on. It was Ceramic and very light but really cuts out the heat. I can't believe how much cooler it is. Plus it's going to save the dash and binnacle.
    2. Left Orlando on the way to Embry Riddle for their New Students Weekend. They put the car in the middle of the campus to draw attention, but, I never made it. I slammed on the brakes and the bushings for the anti sway bar pulled out. Luckily DMC Florida is now in Orlando. Had the car towed there and replaced all the bushings in the front.
    3. Today I found a mechanic who had two cans of R-12. I had one can put in and bought the other can $50.00 total. He said he couldn't charge me for putting it in, he just wanted to work on the car.

    Headed to Cars & Coffee tomorrow at Peter O. Knight airport in Tampa.

    I'm having ceramic installed on mine on June 2nd.

    Did they do it completely custom or order from a kit? The tint place I use does a lot of high end exotics and can usually get a pre-cut kit for pretty rare stuff.

    Continuing to work on those little details today by replacing my front shifter panel along with my LH grey dash end cap.

    My front panel had a few minor shiny scuffs that always bugged me along with some horrible shiny adhesive that was visible at the edges of the shift boot. There were also a series of tiny holes drilled around the internal boot lip that were slightly visible at the main bottom screw holes. The new NOS panel from DMCH was a nice finishing touch here.

    I also replaced my LH grey dash end cap with a used, but mint condition original end cap from Mike and Suzy at DMC Midwest. My original one had been clipped by shoes a few times over the past 37 years causing some minor chips and damage to the vinyl edge. Itís great to finally have this looking perfect with an original part.

    Finally added some bigger throttle bodies to my EFI intake. Made some new fuel rails and add PTFE fuel lines.
