    I hope today is the day. All connections have been made except for the ones at the battery terminals. I hope to take it on a test drive to prove that it will function, and then itís time to start on the suspension.

    The car fired right up and the headlights work great. Unfortunately, the gauges donít work and the brakes feel horrible. I donít recall if I bled them after I replaced the rear line. Iíll try to bleed them tomorrow and go from there. I could probably do without the gauges, but Iím not at all thrilled about it.

    We will see if I take this to SDAC or not. I only need to change out an axle seal and I could take the minivan which has good ACÖ

    i had some issues with 87 daytona gauges at one point.... terminal cleaning and checking solder joints were paramount.

    I need to look at that. I also need to find out what the melted wires under the dash went fire made for a lot of fun wiring projects it looks like.

    The brake booster is hissing pretty hard when I hit the pedal. Iím guessing that needs replaced too. I took it for a brief drive today and it wasnít
    Terrible, not great either. I very well may take the minivan to SDAC, but this thing is back on the road and will be ready to take me back and forth to work very soon. Iím pretty pumped about it really.

    For posterity, the bare SL wheels weigh about 21.5lbs. Not nearly as bad as I thought they would be given that they are 6.5 inch wheels from the 80s.

    I ordered up a reman cardone booster for about ninety bucks off of Amazon. Rockauto is out of stock for the deeper units. I checked, and CSX 42, lancer 356, and my lancer Shelby all have that same booster. I figured it was a safe bet, but I do wonder if the flatter ones might open up space in some regards.

    Man I would have loved to get those wheels, especially the condition they are in. Glad they are going to a good cause! Also cool to know those wheels are 6.5 " and not just 6". Seems little, but definitely better.

    Took the car out on the road in a real way today for the first time. It ran ok for the first time out. Looks like the rad is rotted out on the bottom. I guess Iíll see if I have a good TIIrad in the basement to throw in there. Too bad there arenít enough of us out there to keep the rads in stock at TU.

    mmmm duster lol. reliant is still on duster. works well though i have too small a rad and condenser for it and it heats up the coolant too much. honda 1/2 rad and same size condenser. larger stuff to go in soon.

    07 town and country van has been on duster for years. freezes the kids out even with only the front evaporator connected... super cold. rear had a leak so I installed the plugs to the rear.

    the T2 rad uses a fairly common size end tank to get re-cored, well at least a good radiator shop could recore them 15-20 years ago

    There is a place up by me that I took a GLHS rad to like 2 years ago that took it all apart and rodded it out and repaired the spot that had blown out. Didn't ask about if they still recored radiators though. Their website says they still do A-len auto Downers Grove

    Replaced the brake booster today and just need to bleed the brakes and give it a test run. I hope to get the rad swapped out tomorrow and drive it to work at some point this week.

    Re: Falco Rosso SL#356

    I did some testing tonight, and after some effort,I was able to determine that the cluster should be good. I believe signal is coming in on all of the wires,but there is no power to either connector, since there is no chime for anything and none of the other warning, door, ect lights come on, I think there is a break in the blue with white tracer wire right off the number 8 fuse or before the G5 splice. I'm attaching some wiring diagrams for anyone who has trouble with this in the future.
