After work last night I pressurized the rad again, and left it during dinner. Surprisingly not loss of pressure.

I wasn't expecting that.

After dinner I started dropping it back into the car. Filled it with fluid. Pressurized again. It held. I kept it pressurized all during the time, I reassembled everything.

All good. Took it for a drive last night, and got the engine nice and hot. Still no leaks!

It will take a number of good drives to convince me this will be okay after the first two fails, but I think it will be okay, thankfully.

It's been a heckuva year. Wifey was rolling up the passenger side window today and the vintage regulator snapped.
Fortunately when I bought the drivers side regulator, I bought a pair, so I have the right hand unit stocked in my garage lol

I guess I'll be swapping that out soon!

I guess this year the 'stang is trying to make me pay a lot of attention.

I woke up this morning to find a gas smell and a drip under the sending unit of the new tank. Fortunately the tank was nearly empty and I had a spare seal.
SO the planned change of the window regulator was postponed to this afternoon.

Good thing I looked at a youtube how to video, because the track crews at the bottom of the window frame are stripped and seized. Probably why I did not fix it before this.

Anyway got the rollers slid in and out and swapped the mechanism. Hope that it give me no trouble now.

I'm not counting on anything though.

It's been a month of doing detail items on the car and closing open loops here and there. From replacing the O2 sensor, to some exhaust welding, review of the E stopp parking brake and tweaking, fixing the rad of course and a spontaneous gas tank sender leak, which I am convinced was a byproduct of the jack failure (damaged the gas line clamps)

Anyway more details. The Alarm system, door locks wiring was badly in need of attention. I admit I rushed things to put it together (back in the day (anxious to see if it all worked) and left it.
So spent last night detailing the stereo wiring for the rear speakers (one of the filters became disconnected)
Tonight was detailing the wiring for the alarm system, and relays. Much much better than before.

More detail work coming.
