Got a little bit done this weekend- I ordered (and received within 2 days!) a radiator, so I started to figure out how I would mount this. Turns out I needed to flatten my core support more, and fill in more holes, as they didn't line up. From that I made some brackets to hold the electric fans & shroud. I suppose if I had machine shop equipment (handbrake, shear, press, dimple dies, etc) these could have been done in minutes, but I got my Amish on again and got the hand tools out and made my best at it. It's generally there, but I have some grind marks and general imperfections, so I'm gonna go back and primer/ sand and repaint these before I install them. Also been pecking away at the wiring...

OK, after being distracted with my new (to me) milling machine and getting the electrical hooked up this weekend and bolted down (also added a 3/16" plate of metal for more structure) I finally got a little work done on my car again. I finished the Hydroboost plumbing, reinstalled the fender (kinda looks just like it did a few weeks back) and finished the battery cables. I made a point to use said new-to-me milling machine to modify two aluminum brackets on my battery cables to allow the mounting nuts to sit inside them. I also threw on my old side mirrors, just because I could. I'll probably run with these for a bit to save $$ for other parts I actually need.

Last weekend I picked up a milling machine and a paint cabinet and got a killer deal on them. It took me half a day just to clear out some space in my garage to locate them, then I needed to clean, and put everything back. So I didn't get much done on my car.

I was able to get my rear anti sway bar mounted (didn't torque it down, as the rear axle will be coming back out at some point), as well as I rebuilt my hvac panel to omit the radio and ashtray, and install some toggle switches. I may install a radio one day, but for the moment the engine will provide all the music I need. I also built a wiper motor delete panel.

This weekend I finished up the front sway bar, trimmed the inner fenders (to make room for said sway bar) and bolted up the fenders. I also built the remaining brake line tube and started to connect the Hydraboost only to realize it'd be much easier to do that with the fender off. So back off it went. Then I realized I didn't have all the parts to complete the job. Now I'm ordering the adapters to fit the DSE 600 (metric o-ring seal) to convert it to AN to work with the Hydraboost parts.
