      Wednesday I put in the rest of the bolts holding my transmission to my engine, and started working on the mounts. Thursday I finished the D/S and front mount. Friday I put the transmission mount in and torqued down all the mount bolts and connecting bolts, started putting the starter in. today I started working on putting the linkages back together and reconnecting all electrical and vacuum lines. tomorrow will finish tightening down bolts and finish linkages, along with starter, hopefully will have it moving.

      Wash and clay. Polish and wax over the weekend.

      2 stages of polish today. 2 more to go then wax; has to happen tomorrow. Turns out if you have a family it takes 5 days to do a 2 day job.

      Got it running again. Redid the timing belt (guess it was off a few teeth from when I originally bought it). New plugs and wires, rotor and cap. Flushed the radiator, replaced the upper rad hose (thermostat was stuck closed, the upper rad hose was swelling to twice it's original diameter haha). And I set the timing (though I think it's off, doesn't seem right).
      Anyways, the caddy is finally running again, and amazingly well compared to what it was before haha.
      Whatever happened to sex drugs and rock n roll? Now we just have aids crack and techno.

      If its the white one, I couldn't get the door open. If I could have, I would have pulled the full harness and cluster weeks ago... I got there and it was untouched.
      But I did manage to pull an extra Non-ABS trans bracket.... [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Getting ready to put it in the garage, since I just lost my damn license for a year.......I might as well get it ready to go back out on the road and pull the engine because it needs lots of work
