1 Removed roof rack now to figure out what to do about the holes
2 Removed rear wiper motor
3 removed busted rear bumper cover, waiting on my roll pan to come
4 stripped all the trim around fenders
5 removed all moulding on doors body and tailgate
6 removed bottom chrome trim on the doors but don't like the look, wondering is there any kind of rubber type moulding that can go there? I want to paint it the same color as the car.
7 Replaced front bumper cover
8 Tailgate bottom latch had ripped the sheet metal at all three bolt holes so I had to weld it.
9 Put shocks on tailgate glass
All this done today after helping a friend (well he looked) remove his upper control swing arm on his 94 Imp I am tired as hell

Replaced the right rear regulator in the White elephant, was going to do more, but found out the 96 regulators are different from the 92 regulators. I had to go get another regulator.

I would have finished more, but I found some really interesting stuff in the JY including a set of Corvette Superior rims with 255/50/16 tires, and a removable hard top for a 76 MB 450SL.

1991 OCC 461 (.030 over 454) BBC, 3.23 posi, flash to pass, drop spindles & springs, Impala rims, Hydroboost, Recaros, MOMO/wood SW w/QR, custom wood shift knob, Pioneer DEH P77DH
1992 OCC now with 5.7 tbi, DEH P77DH

1. Put new exhaust manifold gaskets on after months of hearing "tick, tick, tick" under the hood. Glad to say it's finally quiet under there.

2. Got my keyless entry working after finding out that my car was equipped with it from the factory.

3. Replaced the front driver's side door lock solenoid after a year and a half of owning the car.

4. I'm in the middle of fixing my fuel level float after it finally fell off (a shop replaced my fuel pump late last year and admitted that they damaged, but then fixed, the float). The tank is mostly dropped, just need to remove the high pressure lines before pulling the tank out and working on that float.

5. Broke the rear cargo area dome light lens.
