So the UPS truck showed up yesterday....and I received a nice surprise!
I had purchased the Wild Rides Battle boxes (just the lowers) for $50 with free shipping.
Well I opened up the box and to my surprise:
They sent me the whole dang thing. Either someone screwed up and I got lucky.....or someone screwed up and I got lucky LOL....
Rewind to Thursday morning. I get up, do my normal before work routine. Fired the coupe up, let it warm up and head to work. I drive for about 10 min and stop at 7-eleven to get some coffee. I shut the car off, go get my coffee. Come back out and go to start the car and I get a couple of turn over's, and then the dreaded click click click. I've heard that when you put long tubes in, it drastically shortens the stock style starter....well I think that is what has happened. So I FINALLY after sitting for 20 min (cool down) I was able to get it fired back up. Drove up to work. Car sat for 6 hours.....fired right up and I drove home. Well the car was in the garage, and my two little ones like riding their bikes, playing in the garage, so I decided to move the car out of the way. So I did...around an hour later the better half decides she wants to go to dinner, I go to pull the car back in ...and once again...NOTHING....click click click....WTF!!!!So I jump it with mama's truck. got it fired...started a little investigating...battery 12.65 volts....alternator putting out 14.02 volts when running....hmmmmmm. So I take the car down to Vato Zone and leave it running get them just to clarify what I already know...battery checks out ok, and the alternator is in fact charging....well made the mistake of shutting the car off to check the battery (which was a mistake) ended up killing the car....oh and did I mention it's 9:00 and they are fixing to close....not a great part of town.....can't push start it because the way the car was parked....just a sh*tty all around position.....so this happened:
Got her home and put in the garage....and now I'm doing this:
Going to a mini starter (92-95 style Mustang starter) gear reduction and all.
When I pulled my old beat to sh*t stock one out, you could smell it was burnt.
So that's my project for today....
