    driving it in shorts would be dangerous

    I basically gave up trying to find mounts and pulleys... the biggest issue was the thicker dual port power steering pump with the short water pump
    .

    take off the pulleys



    new pulleys

    installed

    and finally starting to mount the filler

    the pointless existence of painting parts

    and scrub the wheels...

    so here it goes.... use header paint on the stainless and chrome

    except rockers that get rocker paint

    these are going to be a challenge

    and why not, while I'm at it, replace the windshield

    in my defense, the window has to come out to get those chrome corners off

    it did come out, but not without a fight, likely this is original GM



    and a bit of rust converter


    tomorrow more of the same, but I can start putting it back together....

    heads will help....
    I used one 20" (IIRC) on my last C3, it never got hot - but I also live in a place where everyone is dying at 85 degrees because it's so hot.... normal 'high' temps is 80.... we might get a year where there are 7 days of 90 degrees.... rarely even in a row, mostly it ramps up then falls right back down...

    my biggest fans

    mirrors... going to make them black too.... just not 100% sure how

    even the carpet is now down for a good clean

    hmmmm. should I use it?

    my stack of chrome to make black.... I may have a plan for this, though

    fittings and hose... but not enough fittings... I also have yet another bracket system on its way, so nothing is set until that gets here



    for the next person doing this... 5/8, 16mm 18mm, 18mm, 18mm
    that is... the fitting size for the PS pump, the pump-to-hydroboost size, the hydroboost to the steering rack an finally the steering rack outlet....
