Way to go Kim...

Hey, um... why is there a Miller Lite on the Garbage can?
She couldn't leave out the beer. Interesting how it probably took Bill 4 beers per side and LilPookey only had one. And a light beer at that ... (must be worried about the figure already.. )

I gave her the beater torque wrench for leverage. She only weighs about 100 pounds. She re-torqued with the good wrench.

Got you beat Will, My sister helped me do the timing chain on my '87, That was what four years ago? She just turned 16 in Febuary.

It'll be hard to get Pooky to fall for bad repairs now eh?

She'* been driving this car since she was 11 or 12 on private property, and on the streets now since I got it back from trans. She greatly prefers to drive the 93 over the 95.

And how are the new brakes? Any initial thoughts? I'm sure the stopping action is very smooth now...

Still bedding the pads and breaking in the rotors. If they're like the RSM'*, it'll take a couple hundred miles to wear through the machining marks. The first few miles were ugly as the plating shaved off the faces. Looking better now. They don't quite grab like the RSM'* did yet, but they're SMOOOOOOTH now. And grab will get better as they break in and seat to the pads.
