Finished painting the new shoes. It’s a F$&@ing PITA to paint rims. Next tool will be a spray gun.

Hopefully my buddy has time this week to swap the tires.

Finished rattle canned door covers and side skirts using duplicolor PW7. Not an exact match but close enough for now.

Love those wheels. I rock the same on my 2g. I wanted them for about 10 years before I finally grabbed a set last year.

Rpf1 imo looks great on everything. I’d love those if money wasn’t a factor. I got these for $180 with some curb rash and 1 rim with a slight bend. Paid $110 to get that fixed. So in for $290... not bad.

Stock radiator showing seepage. Purchased a used Mishimoto with dual slim fans. Had to trim away some plastic from the drivers side fan. Tight fit but enough clearance.

I didn't port my hole enough now I can have to go back in at some point. So annoying.

That sucks!! As you know, trying to get all the shavings out is the worst part imo. I shouldn’t have put the extra crush washer. It’s on the low side but not too low. Right at the low line at idle and dead center at cruise and goes up as I get on it.

You were too cautious. Better to remove less than more :idontknow:. I went by the pics in Jafro’s video and as always, he explains things very well. Pics are at 29:xx

First time at the drag strip in over a decade.
Coolant temp was 190 at staging lane on the last run and added some fuel up top (93 + 2 gallons of E85). Also dropped tire pressure to 20psi. Shooting for high 11s by the end of the year on E85.

Thanks , Marty! ‘‘Twas a blast. Battled a little knock and heat since we drove there. Dropped tire pressure to 20 psi to get that 60’
