Well, the people of the internet were right- lol. After not being able to get the car to fire up after filling all of the fluids and buttoning everything up last night, about a dozen people told me it was the grounds. I never knew these had such a big effect on whether or not a car will crank. I got home from work, tightened up all of the grounds, and sure enough- the car cranked.
My battery was a little too dead from the winter to get the job done, so I pulled the battery out of my daily and tossed that in the car. A couple of cranks later and the car fired right up! Nothing beats the feeling of starting your car for the first time in six months. Feels like a great accomplishment, and a huge relief. FEELS GOOD MAN.
The car did the standard Power FC weirdness for a while, but I think it is all straightened out now. I need to adjust the idle a bit, but there are no leaks so far- pretty cool!
I was super motivated to get stuff done after that, but the busy week with not a lot of sleep really took it out of me. I got the fenders installed, and am hoping to have the whole front end & headlights back on the car tomorrow. As soon as that is done, I will move on to the interior! Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
Hell yeah dude thats awesome! can’t wait to see you put it all back together!
Thanks man! Looking forward to it for sure.
Sounds like music to my ears. Congrats!
Same here! lol. Thanks man!
