Sorry to hear that, but glad you got the cam broke in.

Dropped off the radiator today for repairs, it's going to be an $85-$125 mistake.

And $152.25 it is... just got back from picking up my radiator. What a dumb and costly mistake. I'm going to buy five new tires for it next week. Time to get serious about finishing up this car and driving it.

Put the chrome on the tail corners. Put the drivers side corner on. That half of the car is buffed. Spent the rest of the day washing it getting the compound off of every nook and cranny. I don't want to start buffing till I got a long run of time. Because it is so messy and cleanup takes so long.

It was $125... the additional $27.25 is sales tax and materials. It was very hard to find anyone willing to repair it. It has become a lost art, most places just want to sell you a new radiator.

Radiator is back in and secure. Filled it up with coolant. Spent the rest of my time over there block sanding the Lemans with my father. He kept saying that it was "good practice." Translation - "I need your help, but I'm too proud to ask."

I've been sanding and painting my slapper bars to put back on hopefully it will help with wheel hop. I know there's better things out there but I like the old look.
