Lol, I'm actually going bat **** crazy from boredom/lack of driving privileges. Thought I'd be driving this Thursday, NOPE. Marks 2nd week out, can't drive till 3rd week.

I have been slowly sneaking out to the garage. Took 3 days to install the ICT Billet injector spacers on the 33lb injectors and get them installed on the car. Don't have to worry about maxing out the old injectors anymore.



When I changed the injector settings in the tune I went ahead and bumped the speed limiter from 105 to 125mph. Chinese tires have a T speed rating (118mph), I've got to get serious about the ss wheels getting installed.

Other than that I've started cleaning up the trim today and figuring out what I need but won't be quick results, I'm pacing myself and have to buy a bunch of fasteners and some trim. Unsure if I'm going to effort finding old trim or just bite the bullet, avoid the hassle, and buy new pieces.

Lol thanks for the props, honestly didn't think anyone was around.

I've been sneaking out and doing piddly crap trying to stay sane. Unfortunately I keep pushing it and screwing myself. I'm used to tumor surgeries where I'm healthy, this surgery for hurt/healing is messing me up.

Here's my rig for cleaning trim, had to lift each thing up by itself then cobble it all together. Pinched the rubber foot in the vise then ratchet strapped it down. It didn't clean the side trim, it still has a anodized coating, can't really do anything till I strip it, not interested in going that far right now.



Here's the PO's attempt at attaching the trim. :rolleyes



The windshield trim had some high dollar serious caulking on it. Guess he was trying to plug leaks. Took a lot of work to remove it. I used a plastic trim tool to scrape as much as I could off to keep from scratching the stainless, then hooked my fingers in the trim, wet the pad on the buffer with buffing compound, then held the trim till I about burn my fingers off to get the caulk removed.



Worked ok



And the after math. RIP new tool box



Made it out to an old school yard about 30 min from the house Sat. Did way too much walking, was looking so hard at cars I'd continually walk off a ledge of the rutted trails, come down hard, and jar my back. All the cars were picked over, rusted, and not much good left, but there was a LOT of all makes and models out there.

This is 1/2 of one of 4 lots, I'd walked 3 of them.



Guy told me he had a couple 64s out there. :| He was half right? There were 4 65s out there, couldn't use any exterior trim but was able to grab some interior screws and heater controls.



Thought I was going to recover Sunday but had to help nephew change power steering pump in his Silverado. That was an over do it.

Took a day off, yesterday I mulled around. Worked on my tune for the 33lb injectors and idle. Got so bored I tried the coke and tinfoil rust trick on a wheel. All I had was leftover Dr pepper and a copper scour pad. Worked ok. Only did this spot, hurt to squat down and scrub, rest of the car is filthy.





That's as far as I got. I did blow apart the new heater controls, sand blast the trim ring, painted it, then started installing the heater cables from Greg. Kicking myself in the ass for not doing that when I had the heater box out. Also installed the ashtray and steering column skirt.

Took my time getting on the ground tonight, swapped out the bad fuel filter (too much pressure), did the trick. Tune is coming back around, fuel trims are lining up, and power is back.

Tried my first brake stand, it was a lot more successful than thought it would be. Went straight to the limiter so I released the brake, rode it out, then let it roll in 2nd. First time I've left black marks and released some of that fancy tire air.
