Honda Sprayed, pics tomorrow. Never good to try a new product while rushing the job with a temp 20 degrees cooler than recomended. Started spraying hour and half before dark. Bad idea. ](*,) oh well, weather is suppose to be complete shit tomorrow so it had to be done, Mom needs her car back monday.

Drove the Bus 150 miles to the OCOD meet today. Drives good, needs the clutch cable tightened I thing, along with the steering box as well. Wind had me all over the road.

Honda pics, posting just for the sake of the "getting shit done" monthly competition.

Ran clear curtains down the bumpers and left side, so that's gonna take some finesse only a lifetime of fucking shit up can teach ya. Oh well. Shit happens. I'll get it fixed up next weekend. Mom needs her car back.

Nice job on the Honda. I love 914s, there is a guy down the street from me that has over a dozen of them sitting in his back yard.

5. Installed the air cleaner set up I got from Jobe.
6. Changed all fluids, trans and engine oil.
7. figured out all the wiring.
8. Drove the Bus about 500 miles to various VW weekly meets. \:D/
