[QUOTE=sluggballz;1599492030]Over the past weekend I finally was able to get her painted. I did color sand as well. Last night I finished up putting the body back together. Tonight I have to put the windows and door guts and panels back together and put the wheels back on. Then a test drive. She's been not drive-able since September of last year.

The headlights were installed-after this pic

What kind of masking tape did you use for the striping? Looks great!

Today, I had the side windows retinted with 20% due to some bad knicks and scuffs, found a C4 Endurance decal to get in the rear window and installed a new package tray/shelf in place of the cracked original..

I found this without actually looking for it. It's really good tape. It has 8 pullouts in it. The outside is 1/4" on each side, then 1/16" in the middle.
Worked out real well. It just left a little adhesive that made ridges when I did clear coat. Just meant a little extra sanding. I did four coats of clear so that I could sand and polish without worrying about burning through paint.

This was after I masked the stripe off and before green.

Not today, but this weekend. Replaced the rear Bose speakers with low-cost 6.5" speakers, bypassing the amplifiers while retaining the harness. Required some modifying of the speaker plates (because apparently it was ok in the 80s/90s to mess up screw boss design) but the result is good. Front speakers temporarily deleted and I still need a patch harness to get the stereo (which has also been made to fit) to where it's supposed to be but at least it's some sort of progress.

I dropped it off and picked it up after a body shop installed these decals. I was too afraid of installing them crooked to do it myself.

Finished cleaning the mountain of **** out of the garage so I can get it in and out easily now.

Trying to figure out how to do the carrier bearing for the overdrive unit. If I pull the trans the motor is coming out too and I'm building something for it. 50 dollar bearing is turning into a nice project quickly...

I remembered yours having the same decals because I sent messages back and forth earlier in this thread and told you I planned on buying some like those soon. I like how the decals add a different color to it without putting a big racing stripe that Id probably get bored of soon.

Power steering pump, master cylinder, pads and rotors all the way aound, shocks all the way around then just did oil and filter.

Tomorrow I'm replacing the rack if I can get one on the quick because the power steering pump is stil squealing. And I'm still not getting fluid to the calipers for some reason so gonna replace the brake lines tomorrow and see if that helps it out. Dunno if the brake booster has anything to do with that or not, hopefully I don't have to crawl under that dash. and pull it out.

Replaced the old Die Hard in my 35th Anni with a new Dura Last from AZ.

Tried to start up in prep for a Sun. trip and "click, click". So time to get to work. Along with the new batt. I picked up new bolts and some Si grease for them. Didn't even have to fully remove the side panel to swap batteries. Pretty simple really though think I got enough "exercise" for the day...

Now back to trying to de-fog the rear window in my '89...

Natty, the booster won't effect fluid flow to the calipers.
Did you flush/bleed them in the order specified in the FSM? For example, due to the ABS location my bleed order is RR, RF, LR, LF.

I hooked up the tubes and tried to gravity bleed em and got nothing out of it. Then I tinkered with the right rear for a few minutes before decidig to call it a day.

I dunno. Maybe something's clogged in there i nthe ABS. Thanks for the tip about the booster.
