    Interesting idea.
    will it be enough to defrost (clear fog) off the windshield? Even on Humid Hot days,
    A hot sweaty driver can cause windshield fog over.

    I will let your Hawaiian Lover have word play on
    "hot sweaty driver" in that last sentence.....

    Question. Plumbing the remote tank has some challenges that would be made far simpler with an electric heating element.... Optima requires HVAC, but they don't require it to work well.... what if I just re-engineered the system? it'd give me tons more room..... preserve the fan but replace the liquid radiator with coils....

    today was more of the same
    finish weld

    then leak check...

    doesn't leak, and I didn't even have to break out the epoxy....

    onward.
    just need to plug a few things and attach a couple things...

    after a lot of in and out.... this is what I came up with


    weld a bit, attach a few bits



    need to finish the cap then pressure test... then everything else

    forgot to mention - the problem I had with updating the turtles for the Team Plus sensors was I needed to update my USB driver.... I hate computers

    Really appreciate Team Plus - did a zoom call with him to figure out some programming issues. Zoom call with someone in Australia.
    so once the programming was done, clean spots to glue the sensors in place...

    test

    then not use those spots... and run the power wire inside.

    pretty sure I'll glue them in place then seal the holes... I could make them removeable but putting a screw on top of a tire just seems dumb

    then envisioning for the reservoir

    not a lot of spare room. I still have to put a breather in place

    in other news, I'm still waiting for several parts - and Sunday will be quite booked

    two envisionings tonight. Hmm... spellchk doesn't like that
    First.. where to put the reservoir

    need to make a hole

    here it will be



    then onto the radiator - more specifically, the air intake


    move it 30* then it works just fine

    still don't know what air cleaner, so this is back in play

    Been an exciting day.... 75 mph winds, power outages... but I did get a brown santa visit
    I need to tie the upper a-arms together... these will make the bit removeable.

    and hoses, extras because closeout pricing

    and some intake piping that I may not use...

    and the piece de coolant....

    will require some rearranging, but should work well
    still waiting on a couple parts that won't be here earlier then Friday (did I ever mention my dislike of FedEx?)

    In tonight's conundrum - why would a pressure sensor work when it's not attached to the fuel rail but show an error when connected?


    Adding to the fun. Okay, stepping back, new company, new product and based in Australia.... I have questions so got stopped almost instantly


    hopefully tomorrow I'll have answers and it'll be full go again.

    some of the stock welds on a C3 Corvette make them look like subject matter experts...

    but in this case, I'm not sure I'm against a device that deletes automatics.....

    Put the hood on today - to be sure I found problems before I fully committed to solutions.... hood space is as expected

    throttle cable clears (barely)


    oh and a few surprises - it's no surprise I'm voiding warranties


    this is the trans cooler installed in the tank

    took a bit of chopping to get it out

    however once I did my chopping I found something interesting.... notice anything missing here?



    if you said "shouldn't that transmission cooler have some way of keeping the coolant out of that tube.... you'd be spot on. Can you imagine the poor saps who bought these things, installed them, then found coolant in their transmission and their cooling system full of ATF?

    so I have to take back my concern about that tube blocking most of the tank... it doesn't.... lol. Chinesium at its finest.
