Thanks man I appreciate it!

FINALLY washed this turd after 1.5 years. Man, whoever last buffed this car needs to be whipped. It's burnt and swirled all over it. I'm hoping glaze will pull most of it out but not sure when I'm going to get to it.

Yup, another boring one.

Daughter's boyfriend asked me to go to Cars N Coffee Saturday, then asked if he could ride shotgun. Was still fighting an idle issue but didn't think it'd be too embarrassing to die 4 times while trying to get into a parking space in front of a hundred strangers... Car would cycle back and forth rich/lean, then just die whenever it came down to idle, I'd checked all mechanicals and tuning, couldn't figure out the problem.

On the way there we saw 2 mustangs at the same intersection, I got the green, turned right and pulled a tool move, hit second and hung it sideways all the way through. After that, the idle issue went away. Not sure if I'd gotten cleaner into the TB or water/soap from washing the engine bay, either way I'm ecstatic it comes to a stop running.

Had an old guy with a wooden stool going around taking pictures of everyone's car, he'd drop the stool, stand on it, and get a good angle on each and every car. Luckily I was there when he came by and thanked him for snapping a couple of my turd. He handed me his card, said he enjoyed doing it and to get the pics for free. Hell yea!

Daughter's boyfriend is an amsoil dealer now, had to put some cards out, I'll be running it soon.





This was as the show was winding down, we were waiting for the line to die down before we headed out. I still need to cut the front springs down and get the trim on, and paint the interior, etc. Family items have taken priority for the time being, I'll get to it soon.

Appreciate it Eric, I'm happy with the way it's turned out so far. Just dread starting to add up fasteners/trim needed.
