Well this week was going well until Wednesday. I gave everything the once over on the car and pulled it out of the shop to let it run and top off all fluids. We ran it for about 40 minutes and everything was primo. I was short a quart or so of transmission fluid, ran to the parts shop, came back and no start anymore. It cranks but makes a hell of a clunk. I am hoping for an exploded starter or something to that extint. No other signs or reason for failure but it was just a couple of hours before work and I had been up for over 24 hours. Locked it up, went home for a nap and am on my 3rd of 4 12 hour shifts. Hopefully will be assessing the damage and cause of the clunking monday or wednesday.... Frustrating to say the least... ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

lol, i know shit luck. never the less i will dig into it in the next few days. I am off at 7am today but spending the day with the wife, pups, and our adopted family. Will tear the caddy apart for a better inspection most likely wednesday. I am off monday but I have a rock crawler buggy with a stroker 4.6 inline to put the intake and exhaust manifold gasket back in and do an alignment on. #-o

my cheap scattershield from summit racing was the culprit. It had split in the middle and was rubbing the bolts on the flywheel making a hell of a racket. Car is back out of the shop and waiting on interior. Went by the interior shop today and the rear seat is almost done and the front will be next. I dropped off new custom cut floor mats and trunk mat i cut from daytona, original style, carpet to have them welted at the same time.

great week, the rock crawler buggy is finished also.
