    window alignment and locks.... but tonight... all alignment so you get a couple pictures

    it took a lot of fitting and elonging holes to get everything to line up

    not joking, this is where I started, was worried at Optima they'd call me on this... thank god the FiTech computer scrambled... sheesh


    of course, what would a night in the shop be without needing parts - the regulator on the driver's side is new, the passenger side is not and it needs replaced.... ah well, I have plenty to do in the mean time.

    it was a shuffle day, so it ended with wiring on the Corvette... however, well... some old friends got moved
    as with all great things... I had to 'just' change a fuel filter... what an ordeal, seems the last owner didn't bother putting one seal in place - which made the fuel filter pointless.... grand

    so plan b was employed

    moved to get this back in the shop

    I can't believe how rough this car is.... ugh

    installed in its new home

    the day finished with me getting this reinstalled

    most of the reason I took the dash out was to put speakers and clean up wiring... also, to install the remote door locks... first speakers

    epoxy is great for stopping rattles

    and speaker installs


    I'd never put a stereo in this but it's what gets me points.... next up is reinstall, align the windows, install the remote locks, install reverse lights.... all for the points

    time to clean up some wiring and install the radio
    easier to just take it apart

    one of the really cool things about the Dakota Digital dash is it's 2 plugs to remove it all

    and install the chassis

    the vent didn't secure to the dash pad... fixing that and that stuff can fall into it

    the tabs will hold the duct to the dash pad... all epoxied in place

    now no stuff down the vent

    That said, I've quite literally walked PIR 100 times (2.5 miles) in both directions - I'd rather not die, so despite your desire that I put an LS in this car, it gets 'aero' .... which I loathe. But I don't think I'll like being dead - not to say you wouldn't like seeing me dead - but since your opinion really matters to me (or not)... I'll go with SBW and life.

    I subscribe the here and hereafter plan. It's really a great deal, highly recommend, two thumbs way up. Best part is that second plan has no self-appointed saint policy.

    Brakes. To catch up, the spindle is C5/C6 corvette - which has a larger hub ring then the Camaro - why, dunno, but it does so a warranty was broken, again

    I may not use my lathe often, but when I need it, it really is handy

    2.5 degrees camber, 7 degree caster. Drove it today, drives great... I may put shims in it for 'normal' driving and get back to 1.5* and 5 or so caster

    bling

    trying to decide whether or not to repaint the caliper.... probably won't, but at least I considered it?

    It's their rules, but I refuse to invest big dollars in something that I don't need....

    $36.00 - I think the speakers set me back $12
