    Finally went and got my parts back. Long ****ty story was going to have a garage with 2 friends but drama/mother nature and other fun things stopped that. My parts have been frozen in 4 inches of ice in a garage since January. Borrowed my buddys f150 and after 3 days of breaking ice... Stuff is back. 2 fenders, one 1979 door and one 1980 door, matching door cards for either setup, pacecar hood and bumper. Not everything is perfect but the main parts were doors and fenders. The rest was freebies.

    Parts frozen for an 'Arctic' Fox?..

    Found recently installed new brake line fitting leak at caliper hose connection.
    The old timers say to loosen and retighten nut, wiggle line, multiple times to reseat flare.
    Did the trick.
    Good thing it leaked:
    After reinstalling tire and running down lugs, checked to see how tight the wheel was.
    Noticed there was in/out play when rocking wheel by hand like it was loose.
    First thought was wheel not seated all the way (debris) or suspension problem.
    Turned out to be loose wheel bearings. Retorqed bearings per spec. No more play.

    A 1.5" white pvc drain pipe clean out fitting, with end cap, seats the spindle dust cap evenly by it's flange without denting it.

    Pulled the trans this weekend and replaced the bushing in the tail shaft housing, replaced the seal as well. Removed the worn out rubber bushings in the trans cross member and finally installed Energy Suspension bushings I've had sitting new in a box for over a year.

    Got the trans back in and had everything buttoned up Thursday night. Took it for a short drive the last two afternoons. Sure is nice driving the ol Fox again.

    Got my plate renewal in the mail. Might not have to do much as I think I've only put 2000 miles on in the last 2 years.

    Did drive him to work today. Ran good and started right up even after sitting for 3 months.

    Finally adjusted right front toe and left front camber by eye after doing coilovers and Cobra brakes late last summer. Still need to take it to the alignment shop but it's so nice driving with an aligned steering wheel and the front end is much more behaved. It was a beautiful day today and I was out cruising a lot. Got myself a Hank Hill tan .

    Have been chasing a really bad throttle stumble/cutout with the handheld for the EFI reading 15+ A/F ratio when it happens.

    I think I finally found the issue.

    Pretty sure I should have more than 9# of fuel pressure at a 3/4 throttle romp.

    Looks like it's time to drop the tank to change a fuel pump and the sad part is, I just filled the tank.

    I prepped my road for summer driving yesterday (cutting back bushes and grading it out) and took the widebody on a 10 mile drive just to see how the winter work came out. Ran great, but needs a clutch adjuster to change the disengagement point. It sticks a little too much for my liking. Otherwise no issues (stays cool, good oil pressure, and doesn't pull after alignment and steering rack replacement). I just need some gas before a car show on Sunday.

    I always forget how low the car sits and how connected it feels to the road. Compared to my Suburban, it's just so organic and raw.

    Well, rolled her out from storage, almost dry enough to drive, and found out the power steering pump was leaking. Factory rebuild replacement, ready to take her out and rain in the forecast.

    Installed an aluminum rear bumper support, front aluminum support should be here tomorrow and will be installed over the weekend.

    Trying to get the car as close to 3000lbs with me in it as I can without getting too aggressive. A/C delete and removing sound insulation isn't an option.
