Now that it is mechanically ready, some cosmetic upgrades need to happen to my roof. 
I am torn between doing a pewter roof or a dark red roof. 
The interior has dark red cloth and the dash is still garnet red, but I think the pewter roof would look good too.   :-k

Been annoyed with some misalignment of the hood and fender.

Less than 10 minutes with the hydraulic ram in 2 places.  Woot!  Look at those gaps!

Looks good, the wheels and stance adjustment looks much better now. I think I'd go with a pewter roof, it's just a bit more subtle. Red is a bit too kustom!

They look great! How bad were they before?

The right front corner was pushed in almost 1/2".

Today was the first drive over the big hills since sorting out the condenser.  It did great!  I'd even suggest the mecanicals are Invasion ready.

Been fighting a high rpm miss that was causing my tacho to jump wildy above 3000 rpm.

It is now fixed!  I found, in a box, a NOS black bocsh coil in my stash.  Installed it and the miss is gone.  The tach is rock steady and I am happy.

Worked today on minimizing dents in the early front bumper.  Not perfect, but no longer driving me nuts.
