New belt tensioner pulley bracket the pulley has 2 places to bolt to for small pulley and the large 3 inch pulley . as you can see i didn't have a mill to make the adjustment slot so i dilled multiple holes then i cut and filed now i have great belt wrap and belt tension . funny thing that happened when running the car t sounded great but t dropped a few cylinders so now think hurt the engine so i start checking it out and it is popping so i keep checking thing and it ends up a ignition module that has gone bad so it was down 2 cylinders as it is a wasted spark system

Well with just getting better belt wrap i have gone from 3 psi of boost with a bad slipping belt to right around 10 psi and i think the belt is slipping just a little and i have found i needed to take some coil dwell time out so the ignition module wont over heat as it does in the video and drops a few cylinders at the end http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiexq2LdiFM" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; after watching the video i see 11 pounds of boost and i think there is 2 to 3 pounds more boost once i get rd of the rest of the belt slip

well have been dong research on the finishing of the body work with high build polyester primer then block sand to make it nice and straight then lay down some more primer wet sand then paint or wrap so lots more work ahead to make it right

Yaaa the body filler work is done now i need to just sand the whole car with 220 then since i am trying to do a really nice paint job i am going to spray high build polyester primer then block sand with guide coat to get it as flat as i can then use regular primer sand and put down color . I must really get the floor swept up and all the dust off the car and i will wet the floor to keep the dust down when i spray the color and the clear

It is coming along nicely. Good to see you removed the ribs in the side panels. You have a much cleaner look with out them. They were also a little dated.

today i had someone who said they would paint the car for me we would just swap work and at first i thought great then i got thinking maybe he wont do a good job as i have never seen his work and i don't want to waste my hard work for someone to do no better than can do or worse and there is the pride thing where i can say i did it all
