      Alrighty then, the entire first pass of primer/guide coat has been taken down, and a few last discoveries spot-puttied.

      Okey Dokey, some visible signs of progress, everything's primed.

      Leaving the gutter trim pieces in place would result in visible tape lines so that was out of the question. I removed the trim and covered the resulting troughs so primer wouldn't build up there,...

      Need more info. If you in fact could drive around indefinitely while the ignition switch is in the "off" position, then I would check into the switch.

      If, as is more common, the car stumbles for a...

      Ooof, 8 hours of wrapping the shell. I didn't even get to the panels, hopefully tomorrow. It's soaking wet weather today, and it's not expected to be warm and dry enough to spray till Wednesday, so...

      Good to see that you're no longer blindly supporting the guy, and that you've taken your endorsement of him off your sig :thumbup:

      I'm curious to see if the "new guy" will be honoring old orders...

      What's the volts gauge read at high rpm? Should stay at about 13.5 volts. If it rises higher with increasing rpm, check and possibly replace the voltaqe regulator (it's on the instrument panel foil...

      There's no way to check, since the last torque sequence is 1/2 turn of the wrench, not any actual torque number.

      Don't mess with the head bolts once they're torqued. In fact to settle the debate:...
