I have been working through the last 10% of the resto of the Garnet Red car. I put (I call it dum dum) on the quarter tail light extension studs, and used the original nuts. They are much better than the repop ones. Not big surprise there. The shifter needed some tweaking got that dialed in. Had a real scare with a rocker nut coming loose halfway through a 25 mile run. Tightened that back up and adjusted the valve but need a new nut. Did an overall clean up under the hood and have plenty more to do. Windows need to be adjusted, paint the master cylinder, new pcv hose, air filter and more. The car does run well with exception of a lean surge. I will work on that soon.
