Howdy


I'm new to the DIY thing but learning fast. I just bought my first (and last) house 9 months ago. It's a keeper. So, far I've wired up a bunch of fluorescent lights and built a fold down work bench in the garage. Most of my hands on type of experience has been automotive. I've got plans of all sorts for my house, replacing carpet with laminate flooring, repairing walls, maybe wiring lights inside the house, refinishing garage floor, planting grass and most recently, I have a broken dishwasher.

Hey Rockstar,

These days, I just fix what's broken and that could be brakes to timing chains. I have a Nissan Max that I may be doing timing chains and guides on - huge job. I used to have an 88LX, and I've done pretty much about everything you can think of on it. I rebuilt the original 302, trick flow heads, cam, intake, TKO trans, supporting mods, did a turbo setup, a paxton setup, sold the motor and AEM and built a mild 408 Windsor (dynoed at 507HP/518 TrQ). Now, I'm a homeowner and audio-visual phile. I don't really have anything cool anymore - how about you?

I had a '79 Cobra 5spd. Very fun car. Wish I had never sold it. Right now, I have a '66 Buick Riviera GS that I am slowly restoring. The Buick got put on hold when I got my house in November. I know how you feel.



Any pics of your '88 LX?

Nice car man.

I don't have any pics of the car, but do the motor on dyno day. Unfortunately, it is locked on my SD card. It will take a bit to figure out how to upload it to tiny.pic.com
