Default lost some weight today

ps, ac, cruise control, charcoal canister, intake manifold thermovalve, and a coulple other random connectors and junk....gone

trying to redo my oil drain in stainless lines with -an fittings pushed me over the edge, it was in my way. all i have left to do is loop the power steering lines, cut the drain line and put the other end on, fab plate to block off the intake intake vavle i no longer have.

any guesses on how much weight i lost, maybe 50-60 pounds?

I want to pull my AC, but that's not an easy decision in Dallas.

no it's called tiger eye. it's from ppg. the camera flash makes it look like that. very hard to capture this paint with a camera. it's a black base, 3 layers of candy, then like 5 clear coats.

Oooo candy yum! There's a rock called tiger eye, would you liken it to about the look of the rock?

On the other hand, would you be willing to part with one of the small hardlines on the a/c system? My ziptied fmic kinda chewed through one of mine.
