I vaguely remember that car. I always liked Christine- a car that never gets beat and when you wreck it it repairs itself. Only downside is it will also kill you.

So I decided what suspension I'm gonna go with. After a talk with John powell, he discuraged me from going for coilovers due to unless they cost 7k they suck. So I'm gonna go with koni's matched with yyz springs . sending him the set of koni's which he will powder coat black, and assemble them with powdered red springs and send em to me or would it look better with black springs and red struts and shocks

I think the red struts would be a tad ricey depending on the color red. But if it was nice red it might be okay but I think it would take away from other visual factors of the car. (wheels or calipers)

Heat wrapped manifold, not too pretty but it will do the job.

Soooo probably not because you have to drill the rivits out to get at the seperators. Take a read. After I saw this I pulled my powder coated valve cover apart to find the same thing.

I had mine done by a reputable company also. It's just riding a very fine line of treating the powder and not melting the oil seperators. But not knowing they are in there it's easy to wreck them.

Well , I guess I'll take mine apart, but how do u put it back together? Gonna be pissed if it's all good lol. I have been apprehensive about using it. Will keep the one that's coming with the engine on till I'm for sure this one is good. And put back together.
