Started the GTS and got the copy of the radio instructions (Thanks to Chuck Scheiber)out of the glove box so I can figure out how to get the code prompt on the radio screen.

Looked at the blue '89 in the driveway under the car cover.

Stepped around the Stepson in the garage while replacing severely warped outdoor ceiling fan blades. Thought to myself, "Oh yeah, I gotta get some nylock nuts tomorrow so I can reinstall the rear spoiler".

Looked at the Jalapeno which is under a car cover, and thought to myself, " When am I gonna pull that passenger cam cover to replace that damn leaking seal?"

Remembered that I gotta go down and pay the storage for the Schwartz car. Tomorrow when I go get the nylock nuts.

It was 107 degrees outside yesterday (42 degrees C), so I took the kids to the natural history museum, and found stuff to do indoors when I got home..

edit: just noticed the 53 relay for the fuel pump has had its cover removed.. heh.

Went to the place where it's stored and pulled out the PO's records. Need to start a list of things to do before SITM.

In this pic you can see the new single outlet (and MUCH, MUCH lighter and louder) custom exhaust as well as the newly blacked door locks courtesy of the door lock detail kit I got from Nicole at Hooked On Cars.

Changed the oil & filter. Did some under car & wheel cleaning. Washed the exterior and cleaned the interior. Somewhat of a mini detail. It was a perfect day.

I put about 50 miles on mine today, nothing really.

The part I hate is every time I get into mine I can think of ways to make it better but I just do not have the funding to do it right now.

I had problem with the 88 not stay running today, it would start but quit in something like a second. After 3 hours of checking stuff with Roger on the phone, it finally stayed running, went drove it around town with no problem. The car did sat outside under the snow for two days.
Still not sure if I have found the problem, but I have narrowed it down to the Temp II sensor.

Nothing... but last weekend I put in a stock S4 55psi FPR, new Bosch 044 fuel pump and a new heater valve and short hose. I was thinking of doing my recirc flap today, but procrastinated too much. LH 2.3 with bigger than stock injectors really does not work well with the S3 36psi regulator.

Nicole,

The locks looked terrible and I remembered I had a few more of the coverlay's and found them and installed them! SO GLAD I DID! It is one of those little things you can do very easily for your car and make a real difference in how it looks.

Too much snow on the ground to take the car to the Breakfast yesterday.

Ended up putting on some condenser brackets that I got from Rog over a year ago.

Nice and shiney new now. Bottom pic is how they looked before along w my bag of fasteners that are going to the platers in the next week or 2.

Somewhere along the line, these brakets became silver instead of cad plated. I think they look better in silver.

Chuck--

I have the silver brackets on my 12/88 built car. Looks like they are aluminum although I haven't verified with a scientific (magnet...) test yet. Would make sense to cad-plate the steel parts, anodize the aluminum version.

----

Did a basic wash and some HD window cleaning on the hatch window. Sun was out by then as I had the hatch open for drying, noticed the accumulated junk on the glass. Ended up doing a solvent wipe to get the sap/paint/crud/etc off the glass surface. Kinda like the paint needs to be clayed once in a while to get this same stuff off, the glass could use a clay and polish every once in a while. Or a careful scrub with some Brake-Clean on a paper towel, keeping it away from all the surrounding painted parts. IPA in a spray bottle for the film on the inside of the glass where the heater wires live, BTW.

Got the car back from SeanR yesterday after a MM, silicon pan gasket and power steering hoses replaced. Shifter adjusted after I installed new Delrin bushings from Roger. Man it feels sooo much smoother now. Parts by Roger, expert install by Sean.

Next up, shocks and A/C before the Texas heat hits. Today it's clean her up after snowmageddon this last week.
