Slow progress since I only work on this once or twice a week, but my friend and I started putting some stuff back into the bay and interior this last weekend.

Yes I cleaned and/or painted everything going back in, even the nasty brake lines.



And installed my oem cabin filter kit!



This weekend should be about time for a motor install party

Started fitting up the front end parts but needs a little more work to fit right.

Also need to figure out why I have no interior lights or cluster backlights...already reconnected the ICM...

So the front end is all fitted up! (one of my fogs is out, joy...)

Got the other light issues figured out (don't forget to make sure all the plugs are securely plugged back into your interior fusebox, kids), now on to other issues:

1. Fuel gauge is reading completely empty and gas light is on. Tried two different clusters, tried two different float assemblies on the fuel pump so not sure what's going on there. There is definitely gas in the tank lol

2. Fans didn't kick on, coolant temp went up to 220 before shutting the car off. Going to try re-burping the system tonight.

Otherwise she's ready to leave the garage and stretch her legs. Once she's back in my driveway (rather than 30 min away) I'll be able to make more progress on finishing the exterior/interior stuff and making sure it's all good to go

Pull the top coolant hose off the throttle body and fill it until it comes out of that hose, works every single time.

Somehow I completely missed your journal until I came here to see if the forum is actually still up, after seeing that facebook post...

Nice to see you are still keeping the journal up, car is looking goodBoobaru2: Betty White? So much for not being OCD again... I actually got super confused after your instagram post with another white GC, and am just now realising that you're still working with the same sedan, lol (I really need to read through the journal)
