    I think I got it bled. I connected a long length of tube between the left rear bleeder and the MC and tied it down in to the rear resevior. I then pumped the brakes about 75 times, probably 25 more after the last seen bubbles. I then went back and bled/flushed each rear wheel since cycling the fluid back to the master dirtied up the fresh fluid. The pedal is nice and firm but we'll see what it feels like when I drive it tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

    This one currently is right hand drive jdm NA 5sp I believe. Now I don't know how long it will stay this way. ;):steer:
    Clean car.
    We've been looking for a twin turbo 6 speed forever to replace the one she had stolen, but all cars thus far had been hooned out badly.

    That’s nice how the soft top bows you have disassemble @Von Hayek

    Is that a troll hole top?

    It’ll fit better in the middle seat. Allows your passenger seat to move back more.

    Got tired of my small shop press and started building one that I hopefully won't out grow. 20180428_152415.jpg

    It depends on how scary the new one is to use. I may hang on to the small one for ring and pinions. I'll let you know.

    Take a pick when it's done and standing upright. I need a heavier frame for my 20 ton bender.

    Hopefully I'll have it upright today. 7' tall 5' wide and mostly 1/2' plate. It's heavy!!!!

    You stay moving Ryan, wow.
    It was nothing like that on Thursday last week when I stopped through.
    Looks good!

    Good to finally meet you too!

    I had to get it done. I need it for a job later this week. It sucked to move across the shop. It's heavy. Good meeting you too. Mitch says he'll sell the Meth Mobile.

    What's the job that requires a press this size?
