      Can you give me some hint what did you do, how did you start, any tricks?
      (i have a good mid skill for low volt things)
      So please give me some details. (Just dont remember what wire should i cut, etc)

      Thank you!

      Yeah, Im guessing you probably already saw this, but these are the instructions.

      You need to loop/splice the wires as indicated in the diagram.

      The Red with black stripe from the pump was the 12v and I just grounded it to the chassis.

      There are little tabs on the rear blinkers that you just need 2 female spade connectors, and about 7-8 feet of 20-22 gauge wire. They slide right on.

      now if we can just figure out how to arm the system without adding relays we'll be all set.

      Should be getting my bumper clips in soon, so I can finally have my front bumper securely attached.

      Now that the weather is finally starting to warm up, I might try my hand at some body work to try and do some rust repair.

      ^^^ Great work making nice progress!!


      In my case, with the help of a gracious friend, I removed the PS rack from my car. So, I *hope that's the hardest part.

      Attempting this job at times I wondered if I'm secretly retarded and just don't know it yet?

      Washed, clayed, and waxed the car. Well clayed and waxed most of the car. Arms and fingers got tired working all the crud out of the paint. Results were worth it though. Maybe next weekend I'll finish off the rest and detail the interior.

      he wanted to help the whole damn time, had to vacuum the cat hair of the suede.




      Finished!

      Thanks. Wish there weren't so many chips on the front end, but the pearl still cleans up great.

      The suede looks good. I'd like to do the headliner in suede on mine at some point, but that is low on the priority at this point.

      Saturday I took the mufflers I bought when I first purchased the car back in November and made myself a stainless catback. Still need to pull the down pipe and fully weld the connection there. I will probably drop the rest again at the same time to look for any pin hole leaks and patch those up. I'm really happy I decide to use V Bands for the two connections. They make assembly and disassembly a breeze. Total damage with shipping was about $350 for everything less the $30 I spent on the flex pipe I decided not to use.

      Didn't get any installed pictures or pictures of the front muffler and the straight run from the cat back. Hopefully I will remember to grab some when I pull it down again.

      Edit:

      The catback to muffler after a few miles.
