I recharged the AC with a can from the store. The pressure was about 14psi and its now around 23psi, very easy to do it only took a few minutes and its blowing cold.

I was unable to get time on the lift at the shop so I just did it at home, I screwed and zip-tied some coroplast to the bottom of the car.

I used 3 main pieces, two in the front and one down the back drivers side. Nothing is touching the exhaust. my muffler is slightly leaking and needs to be replaced. I will replace it with a smaller one that will tuck under the car a little better and save a few pounds at the same time. I'm going to use metal on that part. I will also add high heat paint to the plastic that is near the engine.





Today I got some lawn edging for an airdam, side skirts and upper grill block.Pizza pans for hubcaps. A steering wheel cover because the wheel is rotting away. I'm planning on using the lawn edging for an upper grill block as well.

Driver's power window has stopped working. Probably just the switch because it was strong only yesterday.

Hmm after pulling the fuse and restarting the car it works fine. Not the kind of problem I enjoy.
