    It was probably from some brake cleaner in a cut.

    Looks like I picked the wrong day to quit drinking.

    I just used around the latch area.

    This last time around I just used 6T stands and rolled the whole engine under the car.

    Created a new cover image for the car's facebook page. Makes it easy to do that because I can share from one location on just about everything.

    Just a silhouette with a word collage around it that involves everything in the car.

    Been busy with school, since it's out it is time to get back to wrenching. Still have a long laundry list of things to accomplish.

    Finally got the k-member aligned as well as the trans cross member:




    Still nothing to attach wheels to:


    Gonna clean these things up after I do the new collectors:

    Did some repairs to the harness loom and started plugging things in. I feel like my knees have been hyper-extended from leaning over the fender for so long...

    Really wish I had been able to spring for the Painless Performance wire loom that isn't this crazy plastic, but that will have to wait for later a later project with fresh connectors and all that fun stuff.

    Finally got the spindles opened up to accept the MASSIVE CTS-V 6-piston brakes. Spindles are currently drying from a few coats of primer. While waiting on that, I prepped the UMI Performance Inc. front control arms and loosely installed them in the k-member and pointed the zerk fittings out to where I could easily service them.

    Still waiting on a set of 18" wheels, have to send out my injectors to get cleaned and a list of other items. A whole lot less boxes filled with parts though. This thing is getting closer...

    Not blazing through it, but getting some of the finer points taken care of. Finished spraying the spindles, should be able to install those sometime tomorrow.



    Finished connecting some of the harness to the trans. Installed the longtubes for a temporary fitment check with the new exhaust. More on that soon.



    Test fit the UMI A-Arms, they're pretty nice, and finished setting up the Global West upper control arms that were modified by Blaine Fabrication.

    Kinda got stalled on a few things that took longer than I had really hoped to, but it's down to just chipping away at it all now.

    I need to find longer shock bolts for the A-arms, I forgot that I had read a thread awhile back, so I need to go to the local hardware store tomorrow after work.

    Exhaust is just loosely mocked up, will install rear end and stuff when I get a chance in the next few days.
