Quote from: Wing8806
Here, we're not allowed tint on the windshield, or front two windows unless we have the proper form filled out for a permit.

Many people just tint their windows and remove it for inspection, or have a doctor forge a permit form for DMV consideration.  - I can legally have mine tinted, but haven't bothered getting the permit....
What if it's a car like mine, with a factory window tint?

If the car came with windows darker than 75% or something stupid - the windows will either have to be replaced or go through hoops to get it "legal".

There are not any everyday vehicles with factory tint below 75%, that i'm aware of at least. 


VA has some strict exhaust and tint laws as well.  Just because the inspector doesn't bother you guys doesn't mean the cops won't have a field day.

You're right about the cops. They pull kids for license plate frames!!!
Meanwhile dummies run around jacked up 4' or with clear tail lights hassle free.

But our inspector sends the car out legal. A cop might harass, but any ticket would be thrown out if it's related to items that were on the car when Jimmy put the inspection sticker on it.
He made me remove the 'infidel' sticker in the far far corner of the front windshield. Didn't interfere with vision, but it wasn't legal.

So before I mod... I ask Jimmy.

New checklist:

remove tint
install rear rotors/pads
paint new calipers
install calipers
install ES bushings
send coilovers out for rebuild
repair wheels
purchase (2) new tires
alignment
paint hood and trunk
inspection
new master and slave cylinder
tune


Tune is next on the list.  Then I will hopefully send out the coilovers. 


Getting the other wheels on the car, and the hood/trunk painted are on the bottom of the list for now.

Everytime I make a list, I get sidetracked with something else.


Installing EMU this weekend.  Need to extend (2) small harness' and remove/swap the motor mount stud on the drivers side.

Then run more wires.... and move the catch can....

Hollow out the connector and solder new wires in.  Or get another plug/pigtails from a junkyard 'lude Tongue

Found oem part #'s here... checked majestic and new pins are 20ΒΆ ea...

Weighing my options because I don't want this to happen again.

I considered drilling the connector and running the 20 (?) wires into the door and make either another terminal or 20+/- connections with male/female pins.. I think it's 20, but if not, no biggie, you get  the point.
Whatever I do needs to appear factory with the door panel on the car.

Yeah... So I had nothing but built up crankcase pressure that was blowing oil past the piston rings and out of the weakest seals.  Since i replaced everything.... just the piston rings had blowby LOL


havent done a compression test... I don't want to be disappointed by the results after driving 12 miles with this happening twice.  It's the same thing that would happen to anyone with a clogged pcv valve.  So it can't be that bad since the car still ran. 

Issue is the tb gasket, it needs holes drilled out that are not there from Rosko-  this goes for any and all tb's.  There is a breather hole that needs to be open for air to pass through while at idle.

So... does one normally have to figure out that they need to drill their own holes? Or is this something specific to your engine?

Specific to my engine since I have a "different" inlet to mount the throttle body to vs most.  Simple mistake I should have caught much sooner...

Overdue for a photo update.  Soon.


Removed a LOT of packaging foam from the quarter panels, and dynamat from the outer side panels in the rear seat area.  Possibly 8lbs of mat and enough foam to fill 4 nicely sized pillows.

EDFC fully removed and tested.  Now up for sale.

curbed wheel is repaired and back (thanks again corey!)

car is tuned and back in my possession




Updated to do list;

replace window motors (have both, just need to install)
relocate iacv (temp mounted for tune)
paint front calipers (i'm screwed lol)
