I got to channel my inner Maytag repairman this morning. Literally. Took apart the dishwasher to figure out why it quit working. Currently cobbled and working, waiting on parts. Fun stuff.

If I could get the fit up that good, it would work. As long as no air leaks. The leaks play heck on the PCM.
Just didn't realize until this project how important an air tight intake was.

You're pretty darn close for the REAL duct tape...aluminum tape that sticks to metal like a magnet, not the cloth stuff..

Yep, that's the real McKoy there.

There are at least 3 generations that think duct tape is only cloth, thanks to Red Green...

Only car related activity yesterday as driving the '38 to a small town car show and festival. Arriving in the '38 got us a parking spot right in the activities with no blocks long walk to get there... We were disappointed that most of the usual vendors for this event opted not to be there, so none of the usual food stuff. We did sit and listen to a very good local band for a couple hours and then walked the 5 blocks to the lake for the fireworks show. THAT was incredible, some of the best patterns and colors of pyrotechnics we've seen.

OK, OK, the wife pointed out driving the car wasn't the ONLY car related event. The A/C in the '38 has developed a slow leak and I had to charge it before we left and that turned into a time consuming and wet job, as it started to rain while that was happening...there, I "worked" on something...

Pugsy, I'll spare you from my technical curiosity and just point out that now you'll be able to lay claim to the only Camino with a trunk.

If you hadn't already considered that.



You know, like a elephant snoot.

Trunk induction I would have to take it in the house and make tuba sounds for the women-folk before installation.

Seriously that does not look like a fun fab job. Bet you are enjoying it nevertheless.

You thinking paint or polish?

I caught the "trunk" immediately.



No polish as it is as wrinkly as ...hmmm.....let's see....well, ......an elephant's trunk.

You did a hellofalot better than I would've...

Assembling the front end of the Camaro this morning. Just got done with my 2 hours of mowing and now going out to trim down a bunch of young Buckthorn trees. I'll cut them down to about 18" and then spray the leaves with "fertilizer" in a couple days. Gotta love my Stihl brush cutter for work like this. That sucker will cut a 2" trunk off in a couple seconds... Goes thru these saplings about as fast as I can swing it side to side.
