got a big box in the other day with HKS on the side.

went to pull a part and picked up a rear disc swap as well.

So before exhaust install I'll throw on the disc swap.

Well tried to start the car the other day.

Wiggles came over to help look at it.

Worked from the front of the car to the back.

also painted the wheel covers since they looked like hell.



Diagnosis:

Crud in tank and bad pump.

Drained tank of rust etc.

Ordered new pump and new tank.

Already installed .



Also scored a set of blades so they will be on the car.

Well it runs.

Has a light on for a code.

I forgot to plug in a sensor, easy fix.

now all I have to do is wash it, dial it in etc.
