    You should have, and do have pressure at that point, the factory had a seal at that location, but none of the kits I've found has one. Most of them will weep a bit under high boost.

                    Excellent work on the battery hold-down, JP! BP
                    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                        Congratulations on the weight loss. You sound the same on the telephone, but you look much better and younger than when I last saw you in June.

                        I assume that you will get rid of that red top battery and paint the hood mount levers.

                                The battery is temporary, and final detailing is further down the road. I have a potential buyer that wants to drive it if he ends up with the car, and may not want me to invest the time and money to go from say a 380 point car to a 390. I know from doing Goldie that you can spend a couple of hundred dollars a point at that level.
                                Then again, I have another looker that wants a turn key show car, so who knows how far I'll go. BTW, I welcome any nit picking that I can get, even on stuff I know about. i.e. the trunk hinges are now painted body color too, and I thought they were unpainted.
