    Did you hook the ratchet strap to the horizontal part that the pin is attached to? Where did you attach the other end of the strap? I'll be doing this job very shortly from under the car.

    I've been doing a bit more research and prep on my top-coat project for the frame. I called POR15 tech support and got some good advice on using the 2k Urethane. They suggested thinning it a bit...

    I was also able to rule out vacuum leaks to the front of the car using a MityVac which can draw a vacuum and you can watch the gauge on the tool to see if it falls. If you hook it up to the black...

    McLaren is so weird. You can't even see the engine and it seems like the company doesn't want anyone touching it, either. You never see these things modified or "kits" added. Is it their official...

    Nice. I do want to get another MityVac, or maybe the Harbor Freight cheapo version because I like using it to pull a vacuum or simply to suck out a brake or clutch reservoir. Never had much luck...

    I did not put any fluid into the tank - I know it suggests you do that in the instructions but I only used it as an air tank so I wouldn't have to clean it out when I'm done! I had brake fluid ruin...

    Interesting observations! I'm sure power problems can cause all sorts of whack stuff.

    I see I forgot to update this thread. I had a couple threads going at once :-) Anyway, not sure if I...

    Oh by the way, here is the hole in the frame where the auto shifter goes. It's about 2" deeper than the deck that the manual shifter sits in on a manual frame. The new plate that I got sits on top...

    I'm going to document my upcoming frame swap here. You could call it a "rolling frame-off" since my strategy over the last year has been to refurbish, upgrade, or replace every single part that...
