    Mine is mounted differently (behind the radiator fans). It seems to work just fine, although I think it's leaking.

    Getting back to the subject of the taillight boards.



    This plan has fallen through, so I'm again looking at cutting them by hand.

    You're correct, of course. There are two things I am considering with regard to these parts: First, the tie rod ends on this car are a John Hervey/SpecialTAuto-sourced product: I've heard that they...

    Front suspension teardown & rebuild

    Ah ha, but no.

    After cleaning the area I'd be working in I decided to inspect everything before taking it apart. I found some things need to be replaced. After 13+ years there's a lot of rubber...

    I have some rust remediation to do.

    When I put the car in the air to do the brake work, I noticed some epoxy starting to separate beside the passenger-side tow hook.

    I also noticed, as you will have from the above photo,...

    Mission creep has set in again, and a new problem has appeared.

    In 2018 when I did my a/c repairs, I installed a 12"x25" condenser. This was after eyeballing the OEM condenser. Laying them side by...

    In addition to either failed head gaskets or detached cylinder liners, the 2.8 had a bad case of block rot. I had filled two holes with engine epoxy but oil was starting to leak out again.

    Waiting on parts

    Well, I changed my mind mid-project.

    I'm going to use professionally-cut boards. Cutting them by hand is fun, but I've been offered a set of unused boards from Josh S.
