Inebriated update on the car

So there has been a lapse in time over these last few weeks as to what I have been doing; and for the most part I have been hanging out with friends and family, but through the nitty gritty I have been working on the car.

Day 17, was filled with the initial prep to gut the car, minor removal of bits and pieces (01.01.10)

Day 18 was filled with front brake pad and stainless steel line install (01.02.10)

Day 19 was filled with further interior prep and with the help of Mr. Martin Cromwell install of the rear brake shoes

Day 20 was filled with removing the sound deadening from the bottom of the chassis. I didn’t remove any material from the transmission well because I wasn’t able to figure out how I was going to put dry ice to it. Also I discovered a mess of hidden rust. Due to me being the road racer soon-to-be that I am, the act of gutting the car turned out to be a plus in furthering the longevity of the 240z.

Discovered on the eve of the 20th was the act of removing my sound deadening from the transmission tunnel without the use of dry ice!

Day 21 was filled with the complete removal of sound deadening, as well as the Flintstone/rust removal action.

And nearing sunset I received a present from FedEx, my 15 pound odyssey pc680 battery!

This surprisingly fits perfectly in the storage bins behind the passenger.

I deepy apologize for the lack of posts as well as the lack of spelling/grammer in this post, but don't fret I am hunkering down for a good one coming up!

-till next time
