its ok you can remove the brake lines most traffic here in la never gets faster than 10mph under the speed limit :(. For an inepensive heatshield its cool if you go cheaper than cookie sheets and just wrap the whole thing in oven mitts

I can see where I can pull water from other then the front water neck. Hoping to stop by the new machine shop I found today to get pricing on an engine rebuild if we supply the parts.

The hold up on getting this car done has been finding an inlet adapter for the turbo. I reached out to TurboTim and he is hooking me up. Once I get the housing and parts back, the car gets put back together and hopefully started.

I laser all the things, cause I program the laser. Much easier than programming the CNC to engrave, for me.

I was considering engraving faefae's head on the plug but it's too small for his glorious locks.

Well it took me forever to get it sent out to you in the first place. It has not been a huge rush, and I have been doing lots of other small things on the car in the mean time. Now Fae's van died, so getting this car going sort of has moved up in the priority list.

Does that speed sensor plug just cover the hole or does it go a bit into the hole? I've got to plug mine and due to lazyness and thinking I need to go into the hole to really plug it I've been considering just buying a speed sensor.
