Well I have posted here in a while, but I have been very busy. Went to local Pick Your Parts on the 40% off weekends and managed to score some great stuff.

I got a chrome fuel tank door

MSD wires

A complete rear end with Disc Brakes, that I will be changing over this weekend.

IF any other So Cal PT Cruisers want to get together, lets setup a meet and great...we can chose a place central to all that want to come.

Well this past weekend was great!
1. removed the original rear end with drum brakes
2. installed replacement rear end from GT with disc brakes
3. remove lowering springs
4. installed factory style springs.

Easy day..couple hours for the rear end and couple on the springs. Now I have 4 wheel disc brakes and the ride if back were I don't feel every little bump. I like it being lower but feeling every bump, I didn't to old for that I guess...LOL

couple of weeks ago, found MSD wire set and installed them with new plugs and change the oil...She is ready for a good drive. After the first of the year its time for a new timing belt, water pump and tensioner and while I'm at it new serpentine belt and alt belt.
