Distributor Wires

The foil on engine lids always seems to rip above the distributor. People mentioned this was due to the spark plug wires not having angled boots. The straight wires, therefore, contact the engine lid. Over time the contact rips the foil.

While at my storage unit yesterday I found a Bosch spark plug wire purchased from Bill and Steve's years ago. It had the angled boots. I searched for the part number on the Internet and it turns out they are available at for $16. If you order two sets the shipping is free!

Engine Lid Graphics

Scott Taylor did the great technical work and created early engine lid graphics in .pdf files. I asked my local printer to provide a graphic in matte black vinyl. They were easy to apply and look great.

Rear Trunk Carpet Installed

Installed the rear trunk carpet. Used NOS material which was destined for a VW squareback. Much thanks to Mr. David Ball for providing me a template for one of the carpet pieces.
