    What? You wanna go? You're welcome to tag along... Disasterfest2k10 has apparently hit Connecticut as I went out today to find that my El Camino had blown another ignition coil. Can't get the parts until Monday.

    Cut the good one and connected it to the TBL. It just barely reached but it held long enough to get back to the shop. Picked up replacements today, but as usual nobody actually had the right shit. I got one hose at Napa, got half of the other at Autozone. Hopefully its enough that I can get something together on it.


    Brought home the roof chunk, an inner fender from a 1990 Towncar, a fuse box from a 98 Grand Marq and plenty enough wires on the fuse box that I ought to be able to tuck most of the BS that lives on the inside of the fender out of sight so it won't look so horrible. I'll wait to do that until we decide if that fender needs replacing or not. I'm not fighting that plastic liner in there if the outer metal fender is going to end up being removed anyway. Its got no rot, but I noticed some funky ripples over the wheel lip from the tire crashing into the wheelwell over the years.

    Cool.... fuse box here you come.

    oh and be careful when you re-pin the connectors of the fuse box. Those little tabby holder things like to break.

    cougar 302 + aero will have to do, cause that's what i have in stock......the 92 cougar engine supposedly has the cobra cam, so it should run pretty well......this is a low budget (read using what i have here) project.

    ryan has his new steering box installed, we need to get a new power steering pressure hose in the morning and a pair of outer tie rod ends and possibly an idler arm

    then the 5.0 conversion begins!

    Funny ... tonight I picked up DQ ice cream with the '88. Quick stopped at the store before heading home. Got in the '88 and all I got was *whirrrrrrrr* everytime I hit the ignition. After a fair amount of swearing and about 8 turns of the key, the starter finally grabbed. My ice cream survived, but the people within ear-shot of me were probably scarred.

    There must be a lesson here.
