- Installing 6 point harnesses.
- Installing electrical cutoffs (inside and out).
- Installing fire suppression system.
- Fixing driver's side window switch (currently upside down).
- Installing GT style headlights (maybe).
- Installing rear coil over shocks.
- Installing adjustable front spring perches.
****** Break ******
- Installing new cam pads
- Installing "Firehawk" cams
- Installing "Firehawk" fuel map chip.
- Powder coating cam cover.
- Installing new rod bearings.
- Complete fluid change.

I may not get all that done this year, but it's my current "to-do" list.

Currently in the process of removing the turbo to reseal the fittings and lines, cleaning the block and oil pan for the new gasket, and getting ready to media blast and repaint the control arms and crossmember. Probs will replace the timing belt too for good measure even though I did it last spring.

I *need* to finish changing my clutch. It's coming up on 2 years since I started the tear down. I think the last time I worked on it was around May of '17. I'll also do the belts and maybe the wp.

Swap the 250lb front/26mm rear to a 400lb/30mm stiff set-up.
Mend the rear with Delrin, since the front is done.
Change the air-air to a air-water
Replace both the front and rear early bumpers to fiberglass
Do more of this -

Finish my brake setup so I can drive my swap car.

What am I missing about embedding a YT video? Seems way harder on this site than it is on others?

I am currently rebuilding all of the power steering lines, doing the pan gasket, rod bearings, and probably will have the turbo rebuilt. I am sure there will be more while I am in there. YEAH for old cars. What a great car it is though!!

Not accusing anyone in particular. Not at all.....
but when anyone
overlooks adding the 'swapping fuel lines' to their list of 'never been done..... definitely going to replace this'
They MIGHT be surprised....... but not everyone will be.
i drive a kit car swap.... these are kit car nightmares that can easily arise, so i must always keep a close vigil....

I just sent off my Becker Traffic Pro radio to get it fixed, the CD drive didn't work, it was also updated with Bluetooth, just have to put it back in.

Have the front main seal leaking so I am going to replace everything up there and do the belts.

Replace the speed and reference sensor and maybe the occasional stall followed by moving the wires around and it restarts right away will go away for good.

I understand the need, but $200? You can get a free cat at the pound. You'd need to be seriously involved in "humane" mouse death to buy one of those!

Well, it's also good because the critters take the carcasses away.
