I pulled the thermostat housing and cover and crossover tube to work and washed them and sandblasted them.( on my break. Boss) I have now painted the crossover pipe with high temp paint.
I got more parts in today, thermostat , and some gaskets

I got home and started to pull the rad. And I forgot at ask my co worker to borrow his fan wrench so I was stuck. Then I decided to pull my injectors and rail. When i got my injectors out I found this...


Wicked clogged number 3 injector. Which is weird because my number 3 cylinder was sticking open. Maybe full of dirt.

Pulled my front grills my two inner lights have problems ones cracked and the other get full of moisture..

I will be tucking bumpers soon. And posting pics ASAP .

Post subject: Re: A Simple Four Door.

So I have finished up all the little things this weekend: Fuel hoses, TB coolant bypass, filling rad, Fan, pulleys, belt, TB, wires, new cap/rotor. 

And tonight ingot two gallons of 91 and she fired right up. Had a little stubby idle. But it cleared right up.  I wanted to clean the motor so I added seafoam to the oil and gas. Then to the intake.. I love the smoke storm the plows out of cars when I do this.  She is idling like a champ now.  I think I'm done with motor stuff for now. 

Hope I get new parts this weekend. 
And swap good tires i have on to the front wheels. 

Sorry no new pics

Forgot ***I tucked the front bumper and drilled the rear still have to back up in to a wall or post to finish the tuck.
I picked up the black bottle cap with awesome tires when I got the suspension.

Yeah the interior is good but the seats! Looking for black leather or tan sport Seats.

Will be going through the steering system next Flushing/cleaning and looking for leaks.
Then A/C it's a must!
Then rear diff upgrade. Keeping 2.93 but with LSD. With new rear bushings all around.

Moar... Well I couldn't wait till the weekend I installed the new front contaol arms and offset cab's.  I didn't get to install the tie rods.  But I pulled the drivers side strut out and found the clunk at low speed u-turn I had.  Turns differently now I can't put my finger on it. And I fixed my shimmying under hard braking.  So a good night.  Pics. Sorry only one of the parts none of the install.

Post subject: Re: A Simple Four Door.

The car started to run like crap. I figured out it was the cat.. Stock exhaust had been hacked up and a cheap cat installed. So I found a nice ASNA exhaust and started to install it today.  More studs came out than nuts came off.  But nothing broke and wasn't it a huge pain in the rear.  I have to wait till Monday untill I can get studs and nuts and gaskets from work.  So I took out my die grinder and gasket matched the stock exhaust headers. I read a lot on the interwebs whether headers are worth it or not. So a good gasket match and sandblasting them then painting with  high temp paint. With be a good *cheap* alternative .. I can post pics if anyone wants.
