Thanks Bear, just when I thought it was safe to go back in the water...

Will get back to it shortly... job search, family and weather have taken my time lately. Haven't driven her much in the last month... Off on-call tomorrow so I should be able to get at it tomorrow or Thursday.

Going to re-torque the trans and rear end covers (and rear end fill plug). Hopefully that's all it is. Headlight vacuum canister and driver fender well liner came loose so i'll have to figure that out before the next ride. I know the fender bolts are missing - most of them so I'm sure that is the problem with the fender well liner.

Snugged up the drivers fender liner, Snugged up the rear end cover bolts and fill-plug (all were lose). Vacuum canister mounts are shot, will have to figure out something else. May used "regular" bolts for short term, the holes in the fender and vacuum canister have ripped out. The trans is dry.

Nice side affect of tightening the fender liner the fender now lines up with the nose a bit better and there is no mismatch in the fender and hood seam now... I'll have to address all the sheet metal alignment next year.

Took her out for a short ride tonight... will check fluids/leaks tomorrow... weather and job not cooperating lately so car stuff has taken a 'back seat' to life.

Took a longer ride the other day, all seemed well (have not checked for leaks yet) but sadly my time in the seat is waning... that cruel bitch winter is on my heals and closing fast. Winter is fast approaching here with almost daily rain and cold temps.

Rained hard today and she got caught in it while I needed the garage so I washed and waxed her using Tech Shine which has to go on when the car is wet so why not when it's raining? After application you have to rinse it off so again why not when it's already raining? Worked perfectly, she looks great.

I got a lot done this short riding season but still not finished... the list is much shorter so next season should be a lot more drivin than fixin.

1. Vacuum canister loose
2. Mount driver side courtesy light
3. Install seal on A/C vent at heater box - OE was some really sticky stuff I forgot to get - got from a member here.
4. Install OE heater control knobs.
5. Install OE AM/FM radio/new front speaker
6. install OE missing upper Fender bolt
7. Install OE bucket seat nuts/bolts - passenger side - pulling this to reinstall A/C vents etc.
8. Reinstall center console and A/C vents - removed for dash/radio fixes...

Time for winter hobbies to take over...
