Hotaru - I believe those intake plugs are made by Oatey for testing plumbing before it is put into service:

Bought a 'deferred maintenance' ungaraged '78 for $8K and transplanted the parts. It didn't run well. Plus, the interior was Cork and I had loved the Burgundy of the '83. Finally traded John Walker some parts to get it running (apparently the fuel distributor was flooding the #3 cylinder). John is THE BOMB.

Now that it runs great (really great) I replaced the sorely needed headliner and put the Burgundy interior into the car. I sprayed the headliner with SEM spray. Perhaps I will create a thread on that. The car looks great now (I don't really care that much about appearance, frankly). She's a looker, though.

While the car was incapacitated, and lacking welding skill or equipment, I sent the struts to Rebel Racing and the shocks and strut inserts to Steve at Rennsport, who had them rebuilt by Bilstein to his specs for my torsion bars (22/29). I gotta say, the steering feels....I'm not kidding....dreamy. I'm driving it five hours to a conference and five hours back in hundred degree weather with no air conditioning and looking very much forward to it. The car weighs less than 2500 lbs. Oh....I also put Euromeister wheels on, 17x 7&9, and Conti Extreme Contacts. The first pic was taken before the interior reinstallation. Her name is Coco. She's a dancer.
Great stance, sir! Is the car black or dark red or brown? Can't really tell.

Visited at the body shop. First time I've seen it since Feb. 5. It's about to go into paint. Am starting to get a little antsy

Replaced the brake master cylinder. It is not too bad of a job.

Oh, and I found out what that "clunk" I heard the other day was. The bolt on the left side engine mount had backed out completely. I put it back in and re-torqued all of the engine and transmission mounts. All were fine. Very curious about why that one loosened up. Very strange.

Removed stock heat exchangers without issue, back dated oil line, new S-Hose, reconnected fuel lines, connected wiring harness, prep for new oil....realized that I may have improperly routed the engine case breather hose to the oil tank...as it's about 2" short of home...(Ran it out and around rear of intake, apparently it was supposed to route under the CIS? Reviewed many photos and the old line looks to have the same shape (reviewed before installing) of current route so i'm at a loss) Will be developing a unique method to extend the hose instead of re-dropping the engine..

Saturday drove over to eastern Oregon, Bend, to attend a car show. Nice drive up and over/back the cascade mtns. Caught up with a big Merk (MB) SUV. He was going 70+ so I followed him, hoping he had a radar detector and I'd watch the back door. Sunshine the whole way until I got back to Salem, then light rain the rest of the way home.

Kent did you go over Santiam Pass or another route? Used to drive Santiam from Eugene to Bachelor in the 70s.

Changed out the hood support struts. Holy moly the driver's side lower was an exercise in patience and tiny movement control as I'm 6'2" and have pretty long hands. Replaced w/ the Stabilus HDs and boy do they do a great job holding/lifting that up! 1 of 5 pre-Rennsport projects checked off the list.

Yes Sanitam pass coming up from Salem and back the same way. Really a change, when it's so heavily forested on the west side and so dry and sparsely forested as you go down the east side.

Made my first post on the forum.
Found my first remodeling project:

Was lucky to own a few 911s when I was young growing up in Germany and feeling the bug biting me again.
Starting to look for a project car but living in Nicaragua doesn't make it easy (lot's of old Toyotas here though...)
Until then it will have to be glue instead of solder

I had back surgery a few weeks ago, all I can handle is putting a sticker on.
