Haven’t done too much lately, just some bodywork from the previous owner backing a gooseneck into the c pillar. It had a nice deep crease, so bad we had to end up doing a few relief cuts to flatten the metal out. Also had to shrink the sheet metal from working it too much, it was oil canning a little bit.

Got the timing belt changed, tensioner replaced with a high speed unit.

Deleted the AC and heat for now just to simply things for the time being. Most likely will keep the ac off.

More to come.

EESH.....005" clearance? I'd keep an eye on that...That's a piece of paper thickness and while it may clear now also think of heat expansion of parts and things flexing.
Sorry that was supposed to be 0.05 , we suggest 0.100 clearance, 0.06-0.05 pushing it.
