    You're doing fine, my STS project took 2 months as well. (At least my valves and heads were in pretty good shape, no pitting and the valves cleaned up nicely with an ultrasonic parts cleaner).

    Re: 99 STS Project

    Glad to see you have ratchet wrenches (lifesaver when you're working on these!) Joe! Good ones too- I have a set of flex-heads, could not do my job without them.

    Did you get the cam cover o-ring seals already? Pretty decently quick! Maybe I'll start using USPS/Canada Post for other shipments then too- I had the biggest run-in of my life with UPS today. That company needs a complete overhaul. 3 stud kits lost in less than 90 days! Someone must be collecting....

    Re: 99 STS Project

    I see the EBTCM stays with the cradle when you drop it... so when you put that back in do you need a Tech2 to do an ABS bleed? Or does it work with just a plain old full-system bleed?

    Are you doing the torque converter and hub seals as well as the solenoid? Or was that just preventative maintenance?

    Re: 99 STS Project

    I always just gravity bleed and the plain old way on and off the brakes the hole system is dry now, all new steel lines. T.Q input seal, solenoid and filters are all I am doing at this time.

    Re: 99 STS Project

    Lots and lots of nice pics - thank you!

    Looks like a Rustoleum epoxy paint floor? Looks just like mine. I have beat up on it pretty bad for 9 years, including a N* HG project, and it still looks pretty good. I will probably re-coat it someday, but it's still totally acceptable for now.
