    POST Craigslist eBay ads here...

    Love flares that utalize original body cues! Nice work, especially with the use of the filing cabinet. So THATS why they still make those!

    Those binder clips are quite the look. Will that be a feature of the car? Seriously tho, those things are ridiculously useful!

    So I found this... https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/reader-rides/6683/ That's my body kit! Wish I knew more about it, this is all I've been able to find. Also! Things are happening. Very exciting.

    I love how subtle the change is. The flares add alot tho. Very nicely done.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Don’t know if this helps, but do you for whatever reason have too much voltage? Like, a need for some kind of ballist or something? I remember my 81 XT250 did this before I hooked up a battery to it. Then again, I’m pulling from motorcycle knowledge here.

    I have a friend who did a v8 swap, and was contemplating getting the eljetronic setup from his 280 to put on my car. Is this a hard swap? Are there any wiring kits to make these swaps easier. I will admit I’ve read around and everyone says it’s not worth it, but has anyone here ever tried it? Love to learn a little more about it. Do have some experience with the Bosch system, as my father has had a Porsche 912E for some time now.

    Bolts to replace upon engine rebuild.

    Ok. L24 engine rebuild. Replacing the head bolts and all the exterior studs. Should the rod bolts be fine to reuse? Should the main bolts be fine to reuse? What about the bolts holding down the cam bearing towers? Appreciate any and all insight.

    Just some future planning. I’ve read that an e88 Head can be machined down some as well as ported and polished to give some extra oomph. I’m ok with needing higher revs to see peak horse power, but don’t really wanna do anything you can’t run on pump gas. Just curious as to what people have done, even if it isn’t really something I could end up doing.

    Large update. The little time I had to work on the car went into pulling the driver's side flare, getting mad at the passenger's side flare, and pulling the engine. Thats some car that should be... ...here! Ready?(or should i say redi...) Go!(see what i did there?) Needs a bath. Have i mentioned that im pretty sure this car was wrecked at one time? So how was your weekend?
