        I hope you're not looking to see a show quality paint job... I've still got the dang sticky crap from the strips across the doors.

        Well, it won' take more than 2 hours TOPS, to install it. I just need the converter here in time for me to install it. Now I have to catch up with the cleaning!
        I need to re-install the 3rd LED in my line lock indicator.
        Then put my right side dash back together.
        I've still got 75% of the car to wax!!
        Wheels need to be cleaned, just for good measure.
        Tires need to be shined.
        I need to do a quick clean inside.
        A little wiping on the engine area, I'm not going to spend all day there. (Though I prolly should)

        Alright so no more hangin out at the friends house....going home now to work on the Vic.


          I hope you're not looking to see a show quality paint job.
          That's nothing to worry about. My girls' paint and body aren't in the best of shape, either.

          I don't know about you, but I'm gonna have to re-wax and shine when I get out there. No doubt she'll get rained on somewhere along the trip.

          Did you do anything different with this tranny, or did you just do a quick rebuild?


            hhmmm.... if you get it done in time, I might just have to meet you guys for the convoy :slug:

              I didn't rebuild it this time. I ordered a new one, hence the issues of getting it in time.

                silly people and your wax jobs. Hell, my car isn't even ABLE to be waxed. If I want it shined up, I'll have to wet sand the hood and trunk because the PO's spraypaint job on them. If I had the time, I'd do it, but as usual I have 49021389 things to do in the meantime.

                  Well, that's what I did to the virtical portion of the trunk lid. Got overspray from my rust clean up on the outside. And I don't have a clear coat paint job.
