    Since I'm in quarantine I decided to do some maintenance items I have been putting off. First I rebuilt the driver's side door lock so it is functional (sorry no pics of that). I also took on replacing my odometer gears. This is a much easier job than I made it out on my head to be.

    So I have been dealing with coolant hose issues with the ls and things just not working correctly so I decided to give the cx racing hard pipe kit a go and let me tell you this thing is a piece of garbage. I had to cut 1" off of one side to get it to fit. The nipple for the steam port vent is on the wrong side and to top it off the cap that comes with it does not seal. Overall do not buy this. Additionally while I was moving my electric fans I popped a hole in my radiator so had to pic up a new radiator as well (haven't installed it yet)


    Last big thing was I decided to replace all four wheel bearings and upgrade to koni struts. The wheel bearings are the last suspension item that hasn't been replaced on this car so I figured it was time. I had bilstein sports on the car but I am told Koni's are a huge improvement so I went for it. Hopefully getting the car out this weekend to see how big of a difference they make.

      Interested to hear about the Konis! I'm running the same bilsteins and I can't help but wonder if the Koni's will make the ride around town nicer.

      Quarantine time is the perfect time to chip away the pent up projects, I've been going through the same thing.
