Day 22 - NO NAPS . . . (8/31/2014)

Well, no naps were taken today. It was rather hot in the garage (even with the fan on high), but I didn't let that stop me from putting in a few hours today.

Oh . . . Naked metal . . . Close your eyes!!

Baked on goodness . . .

Spaced the PS reservoir down

Small strip of al-u-mini-um and done!! Will add a longer hose later . . .

Home, sweet home!!

I took a pause to dig through some boxes I had stored on the shelf that where not labeled. Low and behold, I found this:

Mustang 65mm TB!!

As you can see from the pics, I removed all of the Explorer stuff and put the Mustang junk on.I added the throttle cable (not pictured) and cable throw works correctly. I added the Explorer IAC (still have to wire it), but the TPS won't work. I'll pickup up tomorrow.

Upper intake installed . . . Labeled the vacuum ports for later.
