Even if it´s going slow, stuff still do happen time to time.
Not so much to show, but been doing a lot of small stuff here and there so car would pass inspection.
And it did, it passed inspection without a single "good to know notice" .

The car is now official road legal and I can start using the car :D

This is how i drove with it last winter

As you can see it´s missing some mouldings and black front bumper. For this winter I´m going to paint missing mouldings anf bumper, may do som other bits and pieces aswell. But will try to get it look more complete.

It´s a really bad home paint job on this car. Some places to thin, some places got really bad peeling, and the masking was terrible

Just look at this picture and you can se how bad the paint job is

This is a very slow going project and will do some of this and some of that when I feel up to it.

The plan for this year before i take it out for the winter is as above, paint missing parts and bumoer.
Make me a new exhaust system including downpipe, may use a standard midpipe, does anyone now how much of a restriction a standard mudpipe is? Is it enough with 2,5" system? I wont be going high boost on this.

Sort out some misfiring issues i had last winter

And try this ECU i have, it got a name labeled on circuit board... I´m curious to what difference it will make to the car, Does anyone have any knowledge about this maybe? I took a picture of the label i found

This is how it looks when i´m chasing down electrical issues, mayhem
ImageDSC_0097 by Benny Gustafsson, on Flickr

But I found the little bugger that´s causing battery light flickering
It´s not easy to see, but look at the black connection, and there you see a little wire coming out, it´s supposed to be yellow, but it´s all black from grime.. but you can se it´s broken there

ImageDSC_0095 by Benny Gustafsson, on Flickr

So one down and several to go

I have spent some time on my other electrical issues aswell. I saw one morning that it looked like i have a leaking cowl panel beneath the windsheild

ImageDSC_0090 by Benny Gustafsson, on Flickr

Investigated that and found that it´s a freaking rust hole there...

So i suspected i got water in fuse box in the a-pillar.
So i started do get into that this is how it looked on the back side

Water dripping

So spent som time with this
ImageDSC_0120 by Benny Gustafsson, on Flickr

I took every affected terminal out of their connector like this, one at the time
ImageDSC_0119 by Benny Gustafsson, on Flickr

And cleaned them with the small wire brush and brake cleaner, then sprayed them with electronics spray and wiped them down.

So now all other electrical issues is gone
