as per usual.
installing everything takes much more time than i anticipated.
for instance i had a cracked motor mount.
i already know this so there is no earthly reason for me to say to myself.
self i will be done in 5 minutes.
but now all i have to do is install the rad ,connect a few hoses and 1 throttle cable.
i will be breaking it in today
