Just had to get it mobile and plan on bringing it home to work on.

Put a Hemi in it! Oh, hemi orange valve cover I mean, good for at least 20 hp. Had it off anyway so went ahead and gave it a coat of paint. Also, changed the oil using QS Defy. And ordered my OPDA SG mod.

Replaced the stock Track Bar with the RC Adjustable Track Bar, set the toe, and centered up the steering wheel.

Well surface rust won't matter. But for a preventive measure it would be a good idea. I hate to be stranded in the worst of times.

Changed the oil today and also noticed anti freeze pouring out of the lower radiator hose where it meets the radiator. Tried adjusting the clamp, but still leaked out. Hose looks good. So tomorrow I will get a new hose clamp and re-tighten it.

2003X check for a crack around the lower radiator outlet--common place for it to crack OK

On the radiator itself? I looked today good and didn't see anything. I will check good tomorrow.

Had a full work day. Clutch and throw out bearing, rear main seal, changed Trans and TC to royal purple fluids, fixed the speedo gear leak, replaced broken rear sway bar bolt, greased everything. It's unreal how much easier the clutch is now. I actually pulled the slave cylinder back out because I thought I missed the fork. My 5 year old daughter could push that pedal now.

Go pick up some Penetrol, use that on your hardtop. It'll even out the color, makes it look brand new.
