Yessir, I am! Right now I am just glad it is running quite well. Fires up excellently. Stable idle in great range. Timing is more stable and spot on than I recall ever. I added some more coolant (it went down again on the test drive).

I have a list of incomplete mods that this repair sidlined I would like to complete before El Mirage:

1) side skirt rebuild/paint
2) Wheel shirt rebuild on passenger side
3) Front wheel blanking complete
4) bumper cover charging port complete (mounted but not live yet)

I'll stop at that to get a few further repairs done:

1) Straighten radiator fins
2) Damned driver window crank (again!)
3) Sea foam the intake manifold & fuel system


See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
