Vacation = GTO Project
Got a couple weeks of time off from work, or mostly off anyway. So I lined up a few projects:
AGR quick ratio steering box and new PS pump. (and new hoses for good measure)
Boxed rear trailing arms and rear sway bar.
CPP adjustable tubular rear upper control arms (to allow pinion angle adjustment when (if?) I install a GearVendors)
New remanufactured starter (old one was giving me hot start problems)
New 100 amp alternator from PowerMaster (might as well replace the crusty old one while the PS pump/reservoir is off)
So far I've got the upper controls arms installed with the factory style braces. I've also done the starter, a real pain with headers but it's done. I also have the all the brackets, pulley, and reservoir cleaned and painted for the steering system, so that's ready to go back on, hopefully tomorrow.
The goal is to wrap it up in the next day or two and get some cruising in before the end of the week. I also have to fix a crapped out power window motor, but that is last on the list.
Wish me luck!
