it was a shuffle day, so it ended with wiring on the Corvette... however, well... some old friends got moved
as with all great things... I had to 'just' change a fuel filter... what an ordeal, seems the last owner didn't bother putting one seal in place - which made the fuel filter pointless.... grand

so plan b was employed
​​​​​​​
moved to get this back in the shop - it'll have its own thread, but it's Buinicorn - 6.0 LS powered Buick wagon

I can't believe how rough this car is.... ugh

installed in its new home

the day finished with me getting this reinstalled

window alignment and locks.... but tonight... all alignment so you get a couple pictures

it took a lot of fitting and elonging holes to get everything to line up

not joking, this is where I started, was worried at Optima they'd call me on this... thank god the FiTech computer scrambled... sheesh


of course, what would a night in the shop be without needing parts - the regulator on the driver's side is new, the passenger side is not and it needs replaced.... ah well, I have plenty to do in the mean time.

Door locks. I've actually come out to people sitting in my car. They still live, but let's slow the idiots down

weld a tab to the lock bar

all fits under the panel

of course this door can't go together because I'm waiting on a regulator.

driver's side done more detail
pull wires

actuator install

it was simply easier to weld a tab to the rod to connect it all up

and just like that, connected

and reassembly of the dash

once the right side regulator gets here, I'll assemble the right side.... between now and then, I have plenty to do... some of the aero should be here tomorrow....

I have little confidence that this will survive in any recognizable form but I want the inlets and most of the shape - but it's too narrow for my plans so fiberglass fab is coming soon

first part of my wing arrived

and the regulator

In other news, Fedup strikes again.... the brackets were supposed to come with the wing - and they're not delivering the wing.... my guess is they destroyed it....

No, you do not have to remove the glass or the outside weather strip....

the parts

getting close the bloodletting being done - but notice that the bottom hole isn't aligned - Chinesium strikes again. Nice touch that all the bolts are 10mm socket head
