    Got the car back from Autofab today. Exhaust is done and the fuel system is assembled. I need to clamp everything right where I want it, but for the most part, I love it.

    Very cool! I like where the lines exit the fenderwell and the color of the lines and fittings. I have never been a fan of red, blue or whatever on fittings. Nicely done.

    So...I am finally getting around to taking pictures of what I have been working on and updating this thread.

    Mostly got the interior together...carpet, seats, harnesses, etc:




    Switched out my stock crank pulley for a ATI Super Damper with A/C Delete (haven't had A/C since I bought it in 2007):


    Installation tool...never use the bolt to pull the pulley on. You run the chance of stripping the threads from the crank and then you're really F'd. This tool threads all the way into the crank and pulls the pulley on properly.



    Lots and lots of Loctite...I've had my crank pulley come off because the bolt backed out. Never again.


    Also, replaced both tie rods which were damaged in the accident.

    Since my old brake lines were rusted and I was adding a ABS delete, I decided to redo all of my brake lines using blanks from the auto parts store.


    Here is my line lock for the front brakes and the proportioning valve for the rear brakes. The proportioning valve is there to regulate how much brake pressure is applied to the rear since it should be receiving less pressure than the fronts which get the full power of the pedal. For the most part I was OCD about the bends...under the hood I used a tube bender, but when it came time to connect to the calipers, I just hand bent them to where I needed them to go.

    Next project was moving the battery to the rear hatch, adding a push/pull disconnect switch, and running wires for the starter, alternator, and fuse box. Ground wires from the frame to the motor were also installed. The entire wiring kit was bought from Tick Performance. I decided to use the kit because I didn't want to do guess work with the wire length. There are two wires from the disconnect switch going to the engine bay. One goes directly to the alternator and the other goes to the starter. The fuse box wire comes from the starter. The car is going back to the speed shop today to get the disconnect switch installed (I'm fairly sure I will not drill the hole in the right place and have to drill two or more to get it right.
