Good god. I can't believe dad and I got my car finished today as well. It literally took aaaall day long, during extremely hot weather, but we did it.

I had to let him do a good portion of the under-car work because my shoulders and arms are just trashed from working on his car yesterday.

We are making dinner now, so I'll just attach a crud-load of photos...
