      Pulled engine number two out - a Cabriolet 2H........... From the passenger area of course. Eventually it will replace the JH. Great thing about Scirocco seats - adjustable height and can remove in about 30 seconds.

      Finally done w/ them. Don't mind the dust on the one pictured, he's been sitting DONE for awhile now. The other's clear coat is drying, that's why he didn't get his pic taken . They're by no means "perfect", but I'm happy w/ them .

      And here's the result, just in case she sits in the driving rain. She's been known to dribble, how embarassing!



      Well, i guess I has the green guy to a car show on the weekend too. Does that count?

      Today I drove it on the highway to make sure it's Cincy ready.

      It is.

      Went to Wal-Mart and bought an EVIL red cooler. Two EVIL red lawn chairs. And an EVIL red toolbox.

      Swap a built tranny onto it, long gears, Quaife, ARP bolts etc etc. Only to find out it was a small input shaft tranny AFTER i got it back on, so, now I need to pull the tranny back off and swap the clutch before cincy x_x

      Put her on a hoist, gave her a pre-trip inspection (no new problems - woot!), and charged the A/C (damned compressor leaks... )

      And, just checked the weather for this weekend. Glad I charged the A/C - it may be needed with a 91*F w/ scattered t-storms forecast:

      Tightened up the nut on my steering wheel since it was about to fall off. Had to dig up an extension bar for the socket wrench, man that thing is really down in there.

      Also had a look at why my throttle is sticking and bad news, it's not the cable or pedal bushing or anything. It's binding up in the throttle body somewhere, yay! Luckily it only sticks if I go past half throttle, so it's slow driving only for now.

      idiot lights for the battery and oxs came on today went to Kragen auto parts and did a batt/ alternator test which showed there was no output voltage replaced the alternator and lights when off. did one more test to be sure and no errors showed on the test. looks like one of the diodes went out

      Replaced my rear callipers, so for the first time since I owned the car I now have a functional parking brake! But at the same time found out one of my rear carriers have both slide pins seized.

      So, I put up a WTB ad for 1 rear carrier, and just an hour later I had one! Amazing!

      Now I need to bleed the brakes, rewire the backup lights to the new style transmission, and bring it in for Ontario Cert.
