I actually bought a couple quarts of paint and used a cheap Harbor Freight spray gun. I will try to get a couple of pics later tonight/tomorrow.

Man Chris- you've been workin' hard on that thing! Been driving it much? I'm so tired of mine being broken- hopin' it'll be running again SOON!

Tony,

I have driven it around the block twice since I have had it. Smile

I just got the title paperwork yesterday.

I have gotta go through the brakes, for some reason I keep losing pedal pressure. I haven't found any lines leaking, so I am assuming I will have to replace a cylinder or two.

is it normal to have to pump your brake pedal to get it to feel stiffer?
looking good!

Jox, pumping is only normal on vehicles that require brake work.

Sample, can you see any bubbles come up through the reservoir when somebody pumps the brakes?

Get ready to get looked at funny when you go to MVD. Take that document that ITS sent you citing the Alabama law on registrations. MVD will look that up to verify it in their manual, but then you should be good to go. Just took awhile when I took mine down there- the lady said "wow- what a coincidence! This car was registered here in AZ recently, then it went all the way to Alabama, and now it's back!". I thought it better to NOT try to explain. Rolling Eyes

I am sure, with my luck, that it will be a big ordeal. Confused

Leather,
I will have to have my wife pump the brake pedal for me while I look, after she is off of the treadmill.

Do you have the single or double-chamber master cylinder? Aren't cheap-o master cylinders problematic (but dirt cheap to replace) on these things?

It is a single. I thought about the master cylinder, but figured the brakes were probably in need of help. Maybe I will do all of it.
