    Lol yup it's sitting next to me in my office in pieces. Sarah has been bitching at me to get it back together since she hasnt been able to ride with me when i drive it.

    Started recovering it and had some issues. Had to send some stuff out to get fixed got it all back. Leather is back on but it sat so long disassembled that I forgot how one of the brackets go back on. Just haven't gotten around to looking it up since I can't find it anywhere in the repair manuals.

    That's 1 of the problems of ordering parts AFTER disassembly happens. When it takes several months to get back to said project, some things begin to look very unfamiliar. I took apart my 87 GN door to install new weather strips about 2 months ago, and now getting ready to start the re-installing process. Most of the time its pretty straight forward, but once in awhile I find a part that isn't as easy to figure out. So far so good though.

    Hell, some of the cars I take apart stay in pieces for years at a time.

    vehicles apart for months.....



    Try for 3 yrs. But seriously, as long as you tag, bag and make detailed notes & take pictures, keep all related parts in the same container/location you should be fine. After having my car apart for almost 3 yrs, several engine pulls to my amazement I still had all the parts and bolts.

    Had mine out today and got her in the air for a long awaited oil change.

    After reading up on it there were many differing thoughts on amount but
    i opted for 5 1/2 quarts. Seems ok.... No leaks and the motor has not seized
    up so all good!

    I put two replacement Falkens on the front also and the handling is soooo much better.

    The Yokohama which came off were ten years old! Yeah..... i know!!

    5-1/2 qts. is what I always go with. I need tires for our car - the Falkens currently on it wore out the centers bad no matter what I did with air pressure. A neighbor runs identical tires on his Corvette and has the same issue.

    Serious bath, oil change and possible plug change this weekend on the bird. Gotta see how they've held up since the tune in Apr. I've also gotta replace my sons front calibers on his Grand Prix GT.

    Added a couple washers to the AIR blockoff plates. With stock bolts the driver side was not tight enough for a full seal

    Spark plug change was definitely needed. #7 plug was cracked. My mpg came back. Which is kinda funny with a 403ci going thru a 8.8 w/4.10 gears.


    Also no debris in the oil, this was a 20k mile oil change after rebuild. It's still clean.....


    Next oil change I'll switch over to synthetic.
