~Replaced the air filter, all eight plugs using only a 3/8"s drive ratchet with assorted wobble tip extensions, a wobble spark plug socket, a spark plug wire puller (Mac Tools part #SP600). Afterwards I replaced every single wire-one at a time-with new wires.~

After that I drove it around to make it purposely pre-detonate, and it never did in any gear. Damn I'm good!

P.S.-only removed the air flow section between the maf sensor and throttle body intake to make it easier changing on the passenger side.

Reversed the blinker mod on the front. I wanted it back to normal. It just didn't look right to me with the bulbs not on all the time. I'd like to get another set of the sockets from a JY and add them to the corner lenses. It would make more sense to have both. Or find a double filament small bulb and socket and install that. Damn...Now I have to go play in a salvage yard to find what I need. Gee thanks, FRF for making me do all this extra work....

My bolts won't loosen up so I can't take my seats out.

They work great year round even in snow. They cost more but last a long time.

I did notice the plastics and the rivets on the regulators are pretty worn. There's some slop in there for sure. When I have a day to spare, I plan on making some new ones at the shop out of Delrin or Teflon. One of the benefits of having a machine shop at my disposal.

If you have a vinyl floor, spray them with PB blaster and let it sit for a day or two, then try again.

I don't have vinyl, but plan on bed lining the interior, so what the hell.

Undercarriage is now show-ready. Finished painting the frame, installed the RS9000s on the front, and re-painted my brake calipers. The Herliner was looking kinda faded and lame, so I hit it with a coat of Rustoleum spray-on bedliner, since I had 2 cans kicking around--looks much better. Put on the updated light bar and Hellas, then gath it a good bath. My first show of the season is the 20th, then Carlisle is first week in June.
