The salt air does wonders to alloys, leaves a nice white powdery coating on them. I was thinking media blasting and then clear coating some of the other parts on the car at some point in time.

On a brighter note, I opened the glove box for the first time and discovered an owners manual and all the original literature from when new. Bonus surprise!

Ooh, installed new engine mounts - nice progress from June 25 to July 23rd, Bill. At this rate, you'll have that roller up and running in 20 years (30 tops)!

Lol! Rear lower tract arms next, then I'll pull the front bumper and clean the damn thing up. Motor arrives on the 5th...

Just giving you a hard time, Bill. I had a pair of wastegate actuators sitting on my workbench for a year that I never got around to installing - ended up taking it to my mechanic. So, I can't say too much!

I know, and enjoy it...If I can dish it out, I sure as hell better be able to take it!
