    With the amount of productivity you've shown lately... take the week off and don't feel guilty... man's gotta sleep sometime.

    I've had days on projects where I just couldn't do it. It was too cold, I was too tired, too much pain etc.. I found that if I just did one little thing... maybe 5 minutes of work, I could say that something got done and it got me that much closer.

    The engine bay is basically done now, just have to fit the battery tray and buy a battery for it. A few fiddly things to be done and then do some detailing.

    I'm watching you and The Critter go about the same goal in two different ways.
    They are both awesome.

    Okay I still am at a loss for this item, everything in the engine bay that should have a vacuum hose on it has and it is all plumbed correctly, yet this is hanging loose in the engine bay.

    Are you sure it's a vacuum hose? It almost looks like the antenna wire that's been yanked out of the base.

    IT is two rubber hoses taped together at the end, one of the hoses has a white connector on the end.

    You know, maybe I should check the washer hose routing and see if this is part of it?

    All you can do right now is trace where they go... it should make sense after that. Passenger compartment, cowl/hood hinge area or under hood items... That or you'll figure it out during your shake down, by whatever isn't working.
