Default It might not be running right, but at least it looks good!

I added a turbo to the car, finished it May 1 and took it for one more test drive .......and broke something in the upper part of the engine. Still trying to determine what happened and why so the car, while driveable isn't really ready for the road.

I decided to give the car a wash and wax yesterday. It was pretty dirty and dusty from sitting in the shop and then in the garage. Pat used the leaf blower in the driveway and the car was covered, and then someone dragged something across the hood through the dust.

So wash with some Mother's wash, and then I used the Mother's Synthetic Wax on it. It was detailed in February for Autorama but I didn't drive it much after that. So wash and wax was all it needed. I forgot how much it takes on black to get it swirl free and looking good (hood stripe and rear spoiler are both painted black). Even though I haven't driven it much I couldn't believe how many little chips the front spoiler picked up already!

I'm going to have to detail the engine bay. Washed it but it needs some more attention.

And the gauge pack. I need to clean up the interior - I think that I will drive it the 1 mile to Northgate Ford and back on Friday for Blue Water Cruise Night

It looks awesome, Jim. Btw, I nominated you in Ride of the Month. Just a heads up in case you don't go in that section very often.
