So do you notice any difference after the braces?
It could all be in my head🤓 but coming off the highway at speed, the car really felt more planted. I’d say an autox event will tell the real tale!

Agreed. When is your next one?

More progress today. Finished putting the front bumper cover back together. Not sure if I will put the fogs back in, may put in some brake cooling ducts.

Bled the brakes and tomorrow will put on the front bumper cover, wheels and finally get it out of the shed. Insurance next week and make a date to install the goodwin mid pipe, change the fluids in the diff, tranny, and get the AC recharged.

Today was the first wash of the season in the driveway. I cleaned the top with some 303 cleaner and then sprayed some Wolfgang top protectant on and I am letting it cure now.

I also changed the oil. Second oil change since getting the car in August but first time doing it myself. I found that I am missing four of the nine bolts for the shield that protects the oil pan and a few that were remaining were tough to break free. While the pan was empty, I installed the Fumoto F106SX drain valve. When I was finished I torqued the five bolts on the shield to 25 ft.-lbs.

June 12. Brake cooling ducts would be, well “cool”!

Love the old pinto wagons.

Finally got her done. Out of the boat house and in the sunlight.

First time on the road since Oct 2019. New wheels are in but not on yet. Waiting on insurance, hopefully by the end of the week. Drove her for a quick run to bed the brakes. Changing the rear spoiler this week and new GW midpipe.

Was weird to drive her, she seemed small after all the time in the 3.

Pumped about Oct. Hoping no snow. Would love to hang with you guys, I'm in.
