Awesome is not quite the word I would use for the paint job. Flat black would look better if it had been done right. This one looks a little like a faded flat black with mottled splotches.
I was sooooo tempted to go out for a burn tonight....but no plates or insurance held me back. All I could do is rev it up and drive up and down the driveway.
Next week I'll take out a temporary permit and "try" it out.
The roads will have to be dry though. Not that I care about getting it wet but the lack of traction would be dangerous with these wide drag radials....and my right foot.
I just can't get over how good it sounds compared to when I first got it. The headers are hooked up to a pair of 2 1/2" Turbo mufflers and no tail pipes.
I found out why the ventilation fan doesn't work. The fuse was pulled, so I popped in a new one and then the fan squealed like a pig on low speed. Moving the blower speed switch did nothing. So I pulled the fuse out. Who needs it when I've got T-tops.
I will have to get the wipers working. I have the wiper switch but the wire colours don't match the ones behind the dash. The wires behind the dash have been hacked and most are hanging with no connections to anything.
All the dash gauges work. No radio. No power trunk release. No cruise control...but who needs it. No A/C but I don't need that around these parts. Non functioning power door locks. Power windows work fine.
Trial and error time for the wipers.
