    I could have sworn I saw something with your name appear when my cursor moved over the little red box with numbers in it next to Photo Garages, but I can't duplicate it now and this *!#$%*! crappy software won't show me what you posted.

    Joey said he can't see it either, but I can, so I don't know what is going on.

    Did you "save" it while you were building it and not actually "submit" it? That's pretty easy to do from my limited experience.

    I suspect that may be the case. You may have clicked the save as draft button, so it's only visible to you.

    I didn't click the draft square no, let me look again. How do you submit it, I clicked the Create Garage button.

    I checked out the photo garage and it looks great, great work repairing what it needed and preserving the rest. It looks like it finally got washed too.

    I'm still dealing with how fast and furious this project was. I need to go lie down and rest.

    Well I tinkered more on the GT and fitted a few things, I put an original AM/FM thumbwheel radio back into the car as well as an original antenna too. And it works! There is now a brand new heater control valve in the car too, the old one while still having a good vacuum can on it still leaked for some reason. Once the car was topped off with new coolant I took it for a drive and watched the temperature again The car still overheats according to the gauge, I also removed the thermostat altogether as well earlier which sowed down the speed by which it overheats. Now that the system doesn't have a leak yes i can tell the car overheats still on the road, but it takes a long time to get u there. Considering the system is all new(I double checked it anyway) and knowing I had cleaned out the block before fitting new freeze plugs I figure the only thing it can be in the radiator which I fitted after giving it a visual inspection. I'm thinking there may be sediment in it, it isn't a new radiator so I am going to super flush the system and then see how it goes. I hope this works out, I do still want to make the Carlisle show.
