    Had a rod knock it its getting a rebuild. Likely with a cam and porting. It was supposed to be a twin turbo sema build to represent his shop but hes moving in 10 months so it'll be a healthy runner/cruiser.

    *sigh* Two steps forward and one step back. Keep plugging away at it, Chad!

    I replaced my power antenna with a rubber whip, but that works on a convertible. Would look odd on an American sedan.

    I think my uncle has a spare antenna lying around somewhere, he'll throw it on if he does.

    Got the swiss-cheese catalytic converter on the SDV replaced, and a heat-shield tacked back into place. All is quiet.

    Disassembled and did final sanding on my console
    The stain I picked out is minwax polyshades american chestnut gloss in case anyone was wondering (seemed closest to the burled faux wood in the car.)

    Also called my mechanic. The trans is in (and not leaking this time .) They were reinstalling the hood when I called.
    All that's left now is setting up the trans and installing the AC lines and AC belt.
    Looks like I may get my FWB back within the week. Then it's going to the body shop to either A. Notch my single exhaust crossmember or B. Weld a pass side dual exhaust bracket on and install the roadmaster dual exhaust crossmember.
    Then I get to drive it to a buddy who said he'd install the exhaust system.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Today she had a bath and went back in the garage. Just finished a 2k mile trip yesterday. Top speed was 109 on I-95 in NC. Buncha mamby pambies in the left lane couldn't get it together so I blew their doors off. I didn't make it to MD like I planned so looks like I'll be back on the road soon.
