    You can fit a rag in underneath the spot in the crossover. It hasn't been topped off with coolant yet, so there a win.
    Picked up a cheap tap set today. I NEEEEEED to finish this paper by Monday though, so it's got most of my attention now. I really shouldn't have been working on the car. I just wanted to know if it would run well or not. Now I have my answer.

    Cheap taps are really f'n expensive when they break. Pipe taps are tapered, not somewhere you want to have one bust. On the bright side its a fairly large tap, so less likely to be a problem. Never buy a cheap #6-32. Its the most miserable tap in the world anyway, and shitty ones will ruin your day.

    When i worked at a bike shop we'd put grease on the tap to keep shreds out of the engine.
    Never heard of an aluminum magnet, will have to look that up. always learning something here

    Oh, it's a pipe tap. 3/8 -18 NPT. My rag fits amazingly well in the crossover. I've been vacuuming after every drill bit I use. I started at 5/16, and worked up to 3/8, however, i need a 9/16 for the tap. and I ain't got one. Yet.
    It can wait.

    Harbor Freight has a Silver and Deming drill bit set that gets you from 9/16 to 1" by 1/16". They're not amazing but they do work. Might have to re-sharpen them, my 3/4 bit was ground shitty from the factory and would not cut. 30 seconds on the bench grinder and its fine. S&D bits all have a 1/2" shank so human size drills can spin them. I know I got mine for a lot less than the 40 bcks they list for now. prob can catch it on sale at some point. Its not a tool I use often but once in a while you need a big drill bit.

    Got the wiper cowl installed. Forgot to plug in the wiper motor. Removed the wiper cowl to plug in the wiper motor. Forgot to route the wiper juice hoses. Removed the wiper cowl. Ran the pisser hoses. Reinstalled wiper cowl finally. Installed the valance, wipers, and seal.
    Managed to get the bumper cover on, but not bolted on because my boys were being hooligans and we had to go inside.
    I tried to test the wipers, but the battery was about dead and couldn't check anything.
    Waiting until I have to leave the house to make the run for the drill bit. It's not a big priority. It can wait.
