    Installed my Katech C5-R timing chain and properly aligned the cam and crank gears. Funny the first time it was pissing me off but it was really hot out. Then I went out when it was cooler and got it done in half the time .

    2000 Pontiac Trans Am WS6

    while i was in new orleans i got rear ended by a guy in a ugly ass f350,i HATE fords,he didnt do too much damage,but enough to trade some paint what made me even more mad on top of having my car damaged by a ford,this stupid lady cop was asking me all type of unnecessary questions,she was grilling me like i was the one in the wrong,i guess they had this ford thing going on LoL! it coulda been worst though thank God





    now im gonna have to get my bumper painted,that means finding a shop to paint it RIGHT from what i've heard pewter isnt an easy color to match

    Sorry to hear that..yeah our bumpers arent the easiest to match either cause of the material ,If they dont use the right amount of ''flex'' the paint will chip of easy.

    I just saw anther TA with the hood insulation, had the Pontiac arrowhead. I think it was a sleak beak also, maybe those have the insulation? Not sure what year it was.

    Sorry to hear that. I had a dodge ram rear end me once. My tail lights shattered, chipped my spoiler, and destroyed my bumper. The guy didn't even get a ticket! His insurance paid out though. The other thing is my son was in the back seat. These are the reasons I hate some truck drivers, they seem like they don't pay attention.

    So I ordered center mount valve covers for my 243 heads and the order got mixed up and as a result I got some free stuff. I got a new front and rear cover. I will still be getting my valve covers too. I was kinda surprised the seller didn't want them back.

    Worked on cleaning the etchings off my wheels caused from the tire cleaner I used. Then, I got one of those do it yourself AC charging kits and found my system was over pressurized. Once I released a bunch out of the valve, I recharged with a couple fresh cans of coolant and the bitch cools like it was new. And to think I went all summer thinking my AC unit required service from a professional, as I thought the compressor or something expensive was at fault.

    Did my cam install this weekend. I could've had it completed last night but decided i wanted to replace the idler pulleys before i finish installing everything. Once those are replaced all I have to install is the radiator.

    So I finally got my oil pickup tube bolt installed, that is a pain in the fucking ass. Especially when your jacks go up only 14" off the ground. Now I can actually get my car back together.
