read through entire thread, (yep , been away a while, overseas working) and not a chance to drive my baby so I was intrigued by this thread....
I guess I know who I will be talking to when that time ever comes!
Rick, so you know a couple years ago I went through a major teardown and re build similar to yours and I have to say when I was done (in no small part to the help folks here gave!), my car has been a wonder to drive! so smooth and for 230thou on the odometer, one would think it was new....
now I have a chance to ship her to Hawaii and am contemplating......but.....I wonder what the service and local parts would be like. I do know having parts shipped from US continental is pretty steep, but hey I got a chance for paradise...what to do, what to do?
anyway,,,, thanks everyone for the great read,,,,,,I will copy everything so in case I get stuck one day I got reference data!!!
