Well the hood is on permanently, the gaps were a bit off as I forgot to install the radiator support shims. :willy: The discharge line to the condenser sits too high and hits the front of the hood when I open it, so 1 either bend the pipe down or 2 recut the hole in the fender well to lift the back end of the pipe the the front end will pivot down. See if I can finish up the engine compartment this week and I will be happy.

Happy new year to you all. :cheers:

Congrats on the new job! So much for retirement - did the wife got tired of having you around the house? LOL

Are you moving, or traveling back and forth? Tokyo is a long way from Okinawa. :ack:

I think we're having a race to see who can take the longest to finish their project. :ROFL:

So if nobody finishes their project, does somebody win? And how do you declare a winner in a race that nobody finishes? :scrazy: :ROFL:

Is the "here" you're talking about Okinawa still or are you seeing those beauties in Japan on your new job?
