    Thank you edekalil! means a lot! it's definitely a work in progress, but I love it! Have definitely put a lot of work into it, it's been such a fun project, I can't wait to start driving it legally haha B)

    What did you do to your dime today?

    Yeah Edekalil, I have the one that looks like a head gasket (copper shim part number 21178SP). I've also heard of the cam tower shims, but I thought this one would be easier and somewhat quicker to install. I pretty much just gave a few coats on both sides of the shim with copper coat in a can and set it on the block. Then I put a brand new head gasket on top of it and basically reassembled everything.

    Installed a head shaver shim since the head is extremely shaved and the chain would make a noise upon start up, now it barely makes it! but it'll do for now! Turned out great! Then went for a drive around the neighborhood since the car hasn't been running since 1990 ( couldn't risk going further)

    I restored the 240z steering wheel i got for it! Istarted with this.... and this Cleaned the years of grime with soapy water and a scotch pad It looked so dull after it dried but i had faith... sprayed some Var polyurethane clear, and color came back! Then primed the black spokes then some black and finished product! although it still has a lot of imperfections it looks way better! I still need to restore the horn pad, but that'll be later!

    What did you do to your truck today?

    with the next school semester approaching and having a very tired L20b in my 79 that burns oil... I decided to take out the completely rebuilt L20b from my crashed 72' into my DD 79' Original 79' very tired engine Getting ready to take out the 79' L20b Finally got it out after much sailor swearing got everything bolted into the fresher engine I like the green, but gonna have to repaint the valve cover Timing the Engine and finally in!!! The engine feels so much stronger and my truck feels completely healthy and it's running great!
