    tail shaft back in :) and then new engine mounts and gearbox mount :) such and easy job with long tube sockets :)

    if you have really thick oil on your kframe and your motor engine is thin then the oil has leaked out the engine mount.

    then had high pressure hose leak,used welders tape to keep me out of trouble.have swapped it over to a brand new one now :)

    and have final worked out and sorted most vacuum problems.gauge sits on 25 now when i first installed it the reading was around 10.

    had my doors not locking so had to fix the actuators and also put in new speakers.

    so yay :) not one drop of fluid from anywhere :) :)

    update time :) well after putting a new chain and tensioner and removing the cam bolt.i recommend only replacing the tensioner. that cam bolt is killer hard to do by yourself.

    check this out and you will understand


    killer hard by yourself and just when your toes come off the ground for a sec is when it makes the weirdest noise, x10 goes and then final cracks :)

    put in new oil penrite 20w-60w latest on the market for cars with high miles on them.see how it goes.

    i'm really trying here.but really i dunno what the heck i'm doing.this is what i done so far.i think i'm at the stage of 1500 sanding then final coat very fine mist so the glitter pops.a few people have been given me some awesome advice.and THANK YOU you know who you are :) :) but i wouldn't have a glue on dry times and when you put on clear e.t.c. i thought outside the square and used tarps i got for a $1 from sca :) :) this made it heaps easier :) :) please be as picky as possible any feedback is welcome :)

    I like your attitude, it's great, you give things a go and if it doesn't quite work you learn from it and correct it.
    You're ending up with some good knowledge, skills and a nice car
