New Paint and some updates!

Hi guys been awhile since ive made a post. Couple changes happened (graduated college, got a job, moved etc.) and I haven't been able to browse the forums as much as I have wanted. Last summer I was able to get the fox resprayed. The original clear coat was really starting to flake off. I went with exactly the same scheme that was on it before and even got around to restoring all the trim.

Got real close with retrofitting the '92 radio into the car; completely wired but unfortunately I think the equalizer is not at full health. No volume unless the stereo is maxed out and the gains are all the way up, but then theres nothing but distortion. Sending that off to be fixed eventually.


Starting to thinking about purchasing stuff for H/C but questioning what way I should approach it. Whats easier with one person, Engine out or removing the front clip and doing the heads and cam with the engine in the car? Ill probably be by myself so whatever's easier is the route I'm going to go.

Looks good! Last time "I" did a cam, I only had to remove the radiator IIRC.

I've done it both ways. If you're only swapping heads and the cam just leave it in, it's not difficult at all. I would only pull the motor if you want to replace the oil pump and other hard to access parts. Also the post above me is correct, you only have to remove radiator to get enough room to remove the cam

Your car's looking good. The clearcoat issue seems to be more prevalent over the past few years. Apparently some engineers are missing something when they formulate a primer/paint/clearcoat package.
