well, today i replaced my scoot'* stator, and upgraded the jets. i then replaced all the plastics i painted. i have spent all week stressing over the car, and i decided it was time to work on something for FUN instead of necessity. im super happy with how it came out. used to be all silver. paint thread is here

i actually plan on using it for the 30 mile each way ride to work in nice weather. figured out with the current gas prices,(scoot vs car) i will offset the big bore kit, paint, stator and jets in just under 3 work weeks of taking it to work. after that, ill be in the money!

I decided I was tired of jump starting the new project car so I basically rebuilt/went over the entire engine bay harness today to get the alternator hooked up. Didn't help since the alt is toast thanks to a buddy hooking the jump box up wrong lol.

Cool Replaced Spider Injectors

I replaced the spider injectors and fuel pressure regulator in my 1996 * 10 4.3l. And in the process I dropped a nut from the fuel line hold down bracket into the intake manifold. Didn't realize it until I was done putting everything else back together. Now what......

you are going to have to find it before it causes more damage, sucks taking it apart but crap happens. all part of wrenching and teaches us to be more careful. been there bought 3 different style grabbers with lights and magnets

looks and sounds great nate!


today, i bought my cars twin. 103K on the ODO same year (99) same color. only difference is new one has heated seats, the lumbar option (which i love) and an aftermarket sunroof that was installed superbly. i drove it 75 miles home and there was absolutely no wind noise coming from it.


the bad: drivers doors are a bit dented up, and the left rear speaker rattles. i plan on swapping the doors from the old one, and and installing a couple 6X9'* that ive got sitting on the shelf.

this car also has the 8 speaker system.
