    I think so. Good thing I was home. Fedex left it at the foot of my bottom step outside--standing straight up. I'm sure it would've been tempting to some porch pirates. Oh well, it's now in my loving care :D

    Yesterday afternoon I hand washed my truck for the first time. It's probably been 20+ years since I've actually hand washed a car (going back to the 90's when I was still living with my parents). Earlier in the thread I posted that I had my bi-annual polishing wax done, and this time around I'm going to try to commit to handwashing instead of running it through the local car wash. Maybe it'll keep the swirl marks at bay longer...

    It came out really well, and didn't take all that long. I'm really liking how clean it came and as long as I can stick with this for at least 3 or more washes, I'll have come out ahead from a cost standpoint.

    Last time I heard @Rocket Man was using Aquapel. It's what I use now, and it's all his fault!

    Yes, Aquapel. Shits the bomb. I put it on once a year, after summer before the rain starts here and it lasts all fall, winter and spring.

    And I just got my new plugs and wires for The Beast. Hope this fixes the misfires.

    Hydroboost is awesome! Until the damn thing starts leaking. I'm on my 2nd attempt to reseal. Still leaking...

    I decided not to buy a new Volant CIA so I went with the ARAID Jr. Message_1619909628082_copy_1664x1248.jpg

    Throw some gauges on it and see what they say. Could be normal leakage over time.

    43455498-F2FB-4FC1-9343-71155C1B0B04.jpeg Finally received these two washers that are supposed to fix the center brake line isssue with the goodridge kit. Here’s the part # etc. I have no idea how they go in or where, no directions provided. Will have to wait till I get around to it now…

    EDIT: they say I only need one, but shipped 2 anyway
