While everything was out I took the day off work to clean up the underbody a bit. I first painted with tremclad rust paint. Then covered that with a layer of asphalt paint. Sorry for the crappy cell pics. My hands were a bit too dirty to use the DSLR.
I also wrapped the exhaust so I get a bit less heat in the cabin.
As well as the clean and spray the subframe.
I also replaced the hood release cable, bitch of a job.
I had started to add the wiring harness for the A/C to the PCM but I found out that its different that what I was expecting. The PCM is out of a 01/02 Chev Express Van not an F-Body. This means that the wiring is not terminated to the PCM as I anticipated. Everything is still doable but will require more research, back to the drawing board.
Make sure your asphalt lining paint is non-flammable. Most of them are flammable, even when dry.
Anyone know how difficult it would be to drop one of these into an e90?
