Okay, got ALOT done. Fixed the ELC on John'* car (first time in John'* memory and ownership that it'* worked), as well as the belt shreddage. Still working on the tails. Wet sanding between coats adds time.

Some more pics:

John working on belts/tensioner to solve belt shredding


Tensioner replaced. Found the threads for the pulley bolt stripped by shop that installed


A few motor shots:






How far the natural belt path moved over after the repairs


And the remainder for fun:

Both spots on the end are mine, the 3rd one in (where my 95 is parked) is an empty unit until next week.

4th set of Bonneville tails I've tinted, and the best quality by far. We've wet-sanded between almost every coat of VHT and clear. An amazing smooth flawless finish. They're going to look gorgeous on the car. We'll shoot before and after pics tomorrow with the car.
