      Is that a Renault Fuego in the background????
      My grandfather had one in the early/mid 80's. Had those hidden door latches, right?

      nope, seadog is to the left of the shot. that's the fort andross mill in the background.

      back on topic, I discovered my fuel pressure regulator is leaking (vacuum hose was soaked after about 1min of run time) anyone got one kickin' around? (not even registered or been driven yet and the list of parts I need keeps growing... yeesh)

      I live in TN, and am fron CT. Last summer and this past summer was spent on Bailey Island. I didn't even see where you were from, but I recognized the mill in the background. Then I saw Topsham, and immediately knew.
      I love Maine. Seadog's ok, but I've had better Maine beer.
      One thing I noticed there: LOTS of old VWs. That may be the reason I like Maine so much.

      ordered some KYB GR2 front struts, sturt mounts bump stops etc and dropped it off @ my mechanic's shop last night. Hopefully it'll be at daily driver status in a week or so.

      On Seadog, you're right, i don't drink their beer. blech (getting sick after eating there may have something to do with it...)

      That's exaclty where I got mine. I think I must have gotten the two right before your last two.

      in the garage, dash is buttoned up, HVAC controls are working now. all seems good, though it's still missing on cyl 1 when cold. Found out that's NOT fun if you're making a left with traffic coming

      I grafted in a red reflector piece from a spare Renault Fuego tail light I've got in place of the broken reverse light lens on one of my tail lights. it was a very good fit, same width and maybe 2mm shorter.

      Well, I haven't done it yet, but I'm planning on putting in the new rear brake drums and shoes, then swapping out the right front strut assembly for the one with a new wheel bearing that matches the driver side. They came out of my 1984 Audi 4ks that I parted out. Struts were near new and the driver side coil spring of the Quantum was actually broken at the top. A coil was laying down on the spring perch, just sitting loose. Never seen that before. Anyway, they're close enough to the same that I don't have any worries. Also putting in new tie rod ends and ball joints while I'm at it. Bleed the brakes and I should be good to go. Then the headliner and a cleaning and off the the auction block...unless I decide to keep it.
