I agree, any reason to travel across this country to get cars, and/or parts. Gets me excited every time, and I get to meet nice people who live cars like I do. Always better than visiting the in-laws.Great excuse for road trip.
I drove around to Wisconsin to pick up my dash pad. You don’t find a like new pristine pad, the right color, for a 55 yr old car ever. Didn’t want to risk shipping damage and enjoyed the drive around Lake Michigan.
Did some heat shielding on my fuel lines to protect them from the headers. Also added a more typical post pump filter. My pre-pump filter was changed to a bigger 70 micron one to protect the pump. I should have taking pics before installing but I'm not that bright. View attachment 415321 View attachment 415322
I had to do the same thing, just when you think one more thing is off the list. After installing the second time I found four freeze plugs needed to be replaced. UhgggDiscovered a leak or small seep in my recently re- cored radiator.
As I was playing around under my lift with my new roller jack, I saw some green stuff on my radiator. Not enough to drip, but enough to escape and slowly run down the radiator. I will have to pull it and take it back to the radiator shop to re-work it.
