Wasn’t today but sure was a doozy. Installed baffles oil pan and Achilles oil pump upgrade. Stripped an oil pan bolt, was scared I had to throw the whole thing out. Broke a sway bar bolt, torque wrench went right past the torque needed I guess.
On the plus side, car now runs, doesn’t appear to be leaking yet, learned just how small 7ft/lbs is and how to use a timesert kit. Appear to have a leaky shock which was going to get upgraded eventually. As this was my first project on the car got me some shiny new tools in the process.
