waking up.... but with a roar... i dont think the local law enforcement would appreciate it, especially with no power steering and little bakes

*hands out cigars*

A new Bonny was born at 5:15 today. 4518 pounds and 12 ounces (due to the beer I had on the roof ) We were all relieved after the VATS fiasco that it ran for more than a couple of seconds. This is a lesson learned: complete the job before troubleshooting.

I had to block off the large vacuum output for the brake booster as the 90 has the electro-mechanical Teves system and does not require a vacuum line. Fortunately, there was one on the LN3 that I was able to use on the L67. Tomorrow we add and top off fluids, bleed brakes, reinstall dash and check for problems. I begrudgingly ordered a new fuel sending unit yesterday from Advance Auto to solve my gauge problem. It was for a 95 and had enough differences for me to decline and request one for a 94. The new part will arrive in 3-5 days so that means that the tank will have to come back out. Maybe I can get toastedoats to me out again.

I was glad to see all of the members that were there to help and experience the firing up. Gumball, Toastedoats, Highlander with wife and of course BillBost37 were all there to join in the mini celebration. Lots of beer, 2 inch thick burgers and a yard full of Bonnevilles makes for a great day! Thanks guys.

To get a new PB account, load the pics...resize the pics and do the write it took 1 1/2 hours. So far I think we've posted more pics on that one thread than either of the two BFests going on. Steve...I'm talking bfests this summer. You are looking like you got owned by a spur of the moment meeting.
