You probably already all know who this is. Worst kept secret ever.

Today, after almost 4 long years, the wagon moved under its own power with no issues for the first time. It's not registered or insured yet, so all I did was go around the neighborhood twice, fill it with gas, and air up the tires.

But it's alive.

Suppose I can start a new project thread here. Maybe update some of the old stuff. Who knows?

Anyway, here's today's shenanigans:

More to come for sure.

Yesterday I cleaned out the interior (lots of parts have been stored in the car for awhile now)... I got the power windows working (3 of 4 work - driver's rear inop for some reason.

I also got the power mirrors hooked up and working for the first time since I swapped them on. I converted the car to the bigger 1995-96 mirrors (car is a '92) by swapping the doors. There's another extra plug on the door harness that I can't see what it goes to. Little bit of tinkering to do there.

You should have painted the spare well black.

Show us a picture of the wayward connector.

I love the way the car sits on the springs and spindles.

Yeah it definitely makes a big difference. I lifted the car up and did the underside of the well, too.

Flat black will do the job best.

If you look at the last pic, I shot it with satin black epoxy primer.

Car has an appointment with the dyno on Wednesday.

This one is totally my bad. Rear lower shock bolt wasn't tight enough and lost it driving. RIP




Ordered a pair of new ones. On the bright side - check out my rear discs. Woohoo!

Fixed the power steering leak. Ordered the wrong AN fitting for the Camaro pump on the pressure hose. Now all is well and I can actually make use of the 2.5 turn steering box.

Woohoo!

Shocks will be here Thursday.
