    20200516_124056.jpg Been working on my car just no internet at home till the end of the month. Grill is in and adding the silver and figuring out what I like, and so far I like it. Dash is in and everything is ready for a road trip other than the windshield and back glass to be installed. working on the kids plane and at work right now using my cell phone and keep hitting the wrong button. SHIT....

                                      The only issue I've had is the thermastat gasket leaks and easy fix. Real happy Johnny the work done is the best I've seen.

                                            Takes a few re-tightening and heat cycles sometimes.
