      Ordered some new injector seals and also placed an order for some parts to spruce up the interior/exterior.

      Refurbished the grill, front emblem (which will be redone with better paint), rear pan, and front lip. Pictures don't do much justice. It looks ten times better in person.

      Your top isn't folding correctly...probably because the side straps aren't installed right. On that last photo, you can see the side strap laying there, not attach to anything. Those help the top to fold correctly when its in the down position. The padding IS folding right.

      This pic shows the top folded right, as far as I know.

      I got halfway through scraping the ice off of the windshield then realized that thanks to my leaky windshield seal I had just as much ice on the inside of the glass. I was starting to run late for work so I swapped keys with the wife and took her car.

      Yesterday I swapped out my old cracked center vents for a "new" non cracked vent. Ditto with the dash facing. The dash face doesn't have the chrome stripe, but that's okay, I wasn't a fan of it anyway.

      Cajun: Hmm, never really thought about that. I'll look into it. Thanks.

      On topic: washed it today. Looking good.

      Today I replaced my crank position sensor. Love the looks you get when you have the tool box out in the parking lot and the front of the car jacked up. now I'm back on the road again.

      Topped off the tranny fluid, replaced all the bulbs (but for the headlights), cleaned her thoroughly, and conditioned the top.

      Picked up one of those little Honda half sized radiators at the 'yard. Sadly, it's too tall.

      Took a picture of it and started dreaming of spring.



      Still need to get some paint for the lower portion of the windshield frame and put the new windsheild in.

      Blue one Nothing but drive it...... my Green one had to have the Alternator replaced last week. took longer to get the warranty Alt and have it tested from the "auto jobber" than to remove and replace the old one.

      On a side note, getting it tested at the autojobber of choice, is a good thing, as they can print out the test or display it, and you can jot down the voltage and amperage of the new unit. So that when you place it on your car and start it after, you can measure the voltage to the battery to determine how bad your cables are.
      Grounds, Grounds, Grounds Replace them things.
      Divorces, Great Coffee, and Electrics, all start with GOOD Grounds.
