Installed a new GMS radiator in my driveway yesterday.

Things to note:
When screwing in the fans onto the new radiator be careful (I snapped one of the OEM screws barely torquing it down)

Put the hose clamps on the end of the silicone hoses when attaching them (don't put them on the center of the hose then try and move them into their clasping positions

And the big one.... my aftermarket Perrin radiator shroud did not fit this radiator (until I took a pneumatic air saw to it at a friends house ... thank you mangostick)



Crappy cell pic after we cut the shroud to get it to fit:

Washed it yesterday, and spot cleaned it with Adam's detail spray this morning (it was dark when I finished last night).

The sensation is gradually returning to my fingers, but at last my car looks great!

Tested the wiper motor on the Corvette, and it's bad. Of course its another '68 only part that is harder to find, and more expensive.

Finally got the other top hat on my winter set up! Just been too busy with work and the family to finish them up so it's been sitting for a couple weeks waiting on me.

I found out what was wrong with my rear camber:



The strut on the left was replaced during an accident a few years ago. I can't imagine how bad it must have been for them to have actually replaced it and decided that obviously bent one was good.

Was there repair work done to the side of the car that the missed damage strut was on?
Did they perform an alignment after fixing your car?

Over the years, there has been damage to both sides, but at different times. It has been aligned several times, and that side was just barely in spec at first. The last few times though, it has been out, and they told me that there was no way to adjust it further. I have since found out that the toe adjustment bolt was seized and of course, the strut was bent. I guess I should have taken a closer look, but it was hard to see with it installed.

I do. Going to call my insurance agent tomorrow.

Still sucks regardless. Especially since mine is a WRX Limited. (Heated Outside Mirrors and Front Windshield Wiper De-icer)

Did my oil, oil filter, panel filter and PCV valve. Soon will be the radiator and trans/rear diff. Anybody local want to let me borrow their T70?! I can't find one anywhere, and shipping online is twice the cost of the bit!
