Fantastic. I'll check my calendar when I get back to work tomorrow and see when I can get down to see you.

With it now driving, time to think about getting it licensed. So, it'll need a brake and headlight inspection.

I'm thinking Hella H1 & H4 headlight conversion would be the ticket.

Flat faced Hellas are da bomb. 5 3/4 are not DOT legal last time I checked. Depends how rigorous your inspection is.

I ran those in my four headlight Alfas, but our inspections were/are for smog only so no problem. Other States? Who knows. There are sooo many different headlights out there now, I don't know that they would notice.

It's been really cold here, recently. Froze the well head, popped some water valves.

I can't tell how thrilled I was to open the workshop, plop down in the driver's seat and have the car start on a couple revolutions of the starter. Absolutely satisfying. All the work was worth it.

Unfortunately, I started it to move it so I can work on the Acura. Hopefully back to this next weekend.

Another nice care package from William of Richmond. He even delivered.

Thanks for the kind words Bob. Look forward to seeing it and taking a test drive. I'll bring mine your way. Nice seeing you yesterday.

Took the plunge, went to the DMV. Paid the license fee and picked up two moving permits that allow me to drive the car over to the smog shop. Good for 60 days. I hope I'm not being too optimistic.

Good grief, Charlie Brown! Can you even move it in your driveway without Guv Jerry going bonkers on you?

Hope it goes well...

Peter, I received the fuel filler hose, from the site you referenced. Very nice piece, packed well and shipped quickly. When I have it installed, I'll just need to fiddle with the below tank hoses. Those are the only hoses that haven't been replumbed on the car.

I am going to play with the paint. The paint has failed on the vast majority of the surfaces on the car. For the short term, I'll just use some "dipyourcar" coatings, while saving up for a proper repaint. The coatings will peel off. First up will be the hood, which I intend to paint in a flat black. I'll also be installing the regular GTV6 front and side moldings, while I restore the fiberglass Maratona body cladding. It's in bad shape.

My initial goal is to make it a properly running vehicle; aesthetics are secondary.

Bob

Didn't have much time this weekend, but still started the car and let it run until the fans came on. Purrs nicely, except for an intermittent miss. I'll have to figure that out before I go for a smog check.

I'm going to take a couple of days off, shortly, and getting this to the smog shop is priority 1.

Attaboy!
Keep it up.
Where did you purchase the tank filler hose exactly? I've yet to find one that is actually made from the correct rubber...

The new one doesn't have the large bellows, but is more than twice as thick. I'll have to post the site I purchased it from when I get to work tomorrow.
