      Start the car with *both belts removed*. Don't run it for too long, as you'll have no water pump. But that will allow you to determine whether or not it's the ancillary bits that are causing the...

      Hey, El T!

      I'm still around. Not enough time to work on my car, no gatherings in a long time, you know the drill. I do miss you guys, though.

      You gonna make a hard edge out of those touch-ups? In other words, are you going to mask the hood right to the angled edge and just spray the edge? If so, you'll have a 'line' that you won't really...

      Did you consider acrylic urethane? While it's true that the isocyanates are nasty, the urethane has better UV resistance. You'll likely have faded paint...

      Here's a photo of the top edge of the hatch...a part you can't really see when the hatch is mounted. The very light rust (that's all there was) has been removed, as well...
