Got the brakes finished today. New pads and rotors, Still need to bleed the system and put fresh fluid in.

I've flushed the cooling system once. Need to do it one more time and then add FL 22 coolant to finish. Tomorrow to get the body back on and get it out of the shed.

Bruce, Jeff says hi! 🙋‍♂️
Lol, hey Jeff. Hope to see you soon.

Made more progress today. Flushed the cooling system multiple times and added FL 22 coolant. Installed the undertray and inner fender well fronts. Ran into an issue with the front bumper cover, I will need to reinstall some parts they removed when they redid the bumper cover. A few more days I hope.

Thanks to Jeff and Tammy for the stay over! On the way out I forgot they had a drop off at the end of the driveway, oops, tore off my sto n sho plate holder....got a real awesome foam and tie wrap setup until the new bracket arrives. It’s a good think I didn’t have the plate on, it would have ruined the grill!

Yes, would be great to see you. You gotta work on the Gov't up there to relax things a bit.

It's been a few days, is the ol' girl running?

Most welcome and we were happy to have you! I still feel terrible that your plate holder ripped off but I am thankful it didn't do any damage to the car.

Sorry to hear Mark, that sucks. Can't you sue Jeff for no signage? I'm sure there is a lawyer who would jump at the chance.

I've looking at the braces for the NC but them seem much thicker than the stock stuff. Do you drag on the ground? Can't remember what suspension you're running.

They’re definitely thicker, but no where near dragging on the ground. I’m lowered about an 1” on progress springs. I’ll measure them tomorrow.

Braces look good Mark, any noticeable difference?

Sorry Mike, no selfies were taken. I only have the pic of the cars and part of his sto n sho plate holder for proof.

Haven’t really gave ‘em a go yet...Sunday off to a large cars and coffee at Fort Adams in Newport. Got the new bracket about an hour ago, back in business!

So here’s the measurement. 1-1/4” All the braces are the same thickness.
The stock braces are 9/16”, so about 11/16” thicker

The real clearance test will be backing out of my driveway. When do you want to come down and test it? lol

Those braces look nice, just as their FSTB does. Speaking of, maybe I will get that Megan FSTB installed this weekend. Also need to do an oil change and swap the summer tires onto the boy's car. Just moved him back home for the summer.
