Braver than I am on the teardown, I'm still getting the confidence together to do my injectors and some other stuff

Not sure if you noticed or not but does the Perrin flap help on the dirt buildup on the back, I've been debating the wing riser which has been said to keep the back less dusty but I don't really like the look....

Anyway killer ride good luck with the rebuild!!!!!

You have no idea how many times I stopped and asked myself, "WTF am in doing?"

The gurney doesn't seem to do much for dust. I know what you're talking about tho. I hate how fast dust accumulates on the back of this car.

Thanks for the positive feedback!

Sucks Charlie never answered. He used to be great. But last time I used him was 15 years ago. Jesus, it has been that long. Slow down you damn kids...

Yea, I left him a couple messages. Oh well, it ended up motivating me to actually call a machine shop and they could get the parts done in a couple days. I was expecting them to be weeks out, that's why I never bothered. Anyway its all being taken care of now and she will be back up and running in no time.

Runs great so far, Hit up a couple car meets this weekend and have done probably about 100 miles on it. Feels and sounds nice a fresh. Interestingly all my timing pulley bearings that came off the motor were extremely rough, I feel they would not have lasted much longer even though I'm 5000 miles ahead of the timing belt service interval.

Got back behind the wheel this weekend at our Maverick Center event. This was my first time at this venue and it was a blast, it was our biggest venue and it allowed for a nice flowing track, definitely going to be coming back here this year.

I had to retire early because the car started running really bad, I think this was because of the purge valve I tried to silicone back together in hopes of not having to buy another $140 piece. Looks like ill have to get a new one tho.

So I finally got around to installing most of my Whiteline parts. I did the steering rack bushings then the lower rear control arms, I went and drove the car and alignment was wayyyy off so I brought it back and measured everything and although both rear control arms where even, the factory toe arms where about 1/4" off. Even though I didn't plan on doing the toe arms today I did anyway, now everything is even and I think the car has a better alignment on it than what the last shop did. Now I just have to get a couple bushings pressed in the rear trailing arms and the suspension will be done. Ill get it corner balanced after that along with a race spec alignment.









I should mention, the Whiteline lower control arms are a little bit of a PITA to install and get adjusted, but the adjustment they provide for the price is unmatched.

Also, the ISC arms I had on previously change the suspensions geometry. I was unaware of this until I put the Whiteline parts on and my rear end was sitting 1/2" higher than before.
