Mine pretty much stopped squeaking when I put in stainless steel hatch pins. ^_^

Today I drove my car too fast. As usual. It was fun. Had a friend with a 5.0 Mustang GT ahead of me and I stayed right on her tail all the way across town, even when she had open road ahead of her. With an engine exactly half the size of hers.

I finally got around to spraying a few interior pieces I had black to match my interior. They were originally a dark brown.

Not today but last weekend I put in the hatch pin bushings from only944. That is a great product, no more rattles at all. It is as quiet as a new car.

Today I bent the gas pedal to get it a bit closer to the floor to improve the feel and replaced the front latch hinges on the sunroof. I think the header bolts need to be retorqued, but I'm going to need to get under the car to do some of them because the brake booster is in the way to get at them from the top. I really hope I don't have to take the booster out.

#1- the four contacts inside a fan relay
Soldering at the rear.

fixed the heater blower motor. swapped the relay with the rear defroster since they were the same. Now just have to get a new one to put in for the rear defroster. Put in new Lloyds mats purchased from our host the other day. Man, do they look sweet!!!!!

Did you see the update on the transaxle shifter shaft bolt? Evidently there were a number of incidents where the big nut on the new shifter had backed off and there was a recommendation from Kyle to drill and cotter pin or safety wire the nut so it doesn't back off. I drilled and cotter keyed mine.

Spent the day installing a fuel rail fuel gauge line and 1 1/2 inch gauge, attached to the throttle body.

Thanks mytrplseven, all the short shifters sold after that email are already drilled and have a cotter pin installed. But thanks for letting him know just in case.

That's a cool fuel pressure gauge. It looks simple and easy to do. I need to do that to both my cars.

First tough break!

My Porsche 944's left-side lower control arm tore off after a spirited U-turn, causing the left wheel to push the fender back and out a couple inches, and I was stranded for hours on side of the road. I'm fine and at home now. That old car will get fixed on Monday (can't imagine the cost).

Lessons learned: always take your cellphone w/ya; and if the police officer says he's going to call a tow truck for you, tell him you will make that call, because it would only cost $70 instead of $165. Sorry, no pictures this time.

Bought this car off eBay earlier this year and really enjoyed driving it around; but this first break is going to hurt because I only have liability insurance on it

BTW,

That red pulley, what is it called; and what does it do to make the car go faster?

sushiman, the red pulley is a throttle cam, and swapping out the original oblong one for the round one like the one in that picture simply makes the throttle pedal more sensitive. I put one on my 924S and it took a bit to get used to the engine revving faster but after I got used to it, the difference isn't very noticeable. Basically, you don't have to move your foot as far to rev the engine as much.
