My TVS FMIC shipped today. šŸ™‚

Spent the whole day grinding toward a drivable car.

Finished up the door armrest pad mods, and epoxied the broken driver’s door handle tube.

Realized that, if I want the key remotes to work, I needed the receiver from the OEM rearview mirror. So I worked on that for an hour.

Removed this, carefully pushed the small white plugs through the base of the mirror.

Plugged it in and tested it. Yep, works.

Disabled daytime running lights, reviewed other coding with NCSexpert. Reviewed and cleared all codes. Wished I had printed it all out… all the codes from the crash and the aftermath were there… it was A LOT of stuff, on almost every module.

Did the ABS air bleed procedure.

Added some front camber. Dropped the struts and maxed out camber on the BC plates, reinstalled the struts. Since I haven’t cut the strut towers for camber adjustment access (at least not yet).

Went to the exhaust shop, supervised having my hangers installed.

Brought the exhaust mid pipe assembly home. Decided that now’s the time to move my oil pressure sensor onto a remote line, to protect it from engine vibration. Fittings to do that came yesterday. Determined that I was going to have to drop the header partially to reach it. So had to disconnect 2 O2 sensors and the EGT sensor. Made a AN line and routed it into the right cowl.

Installed exhaust! It fits! And sounds great!

Still need to get the rear section repaired, I’ll take the car to the exhaust shop for that. Lots of rubbing and rattling in the rear where it’s been bent. I have a plan to make this even more special when rebuilt.

But this is a terrific sight, idling in the garage. I’ll drive it tomorrow, if the rain lets up.
