I saw that episode by chance last night. I thought the finished produce looked fantastic! Custom but not over the top. I too did not like the lock switch, should've just put it on the dash, my wish list would have been to have the console extend all the way to the back seat.

I'm not a plumber, but I did play one on TV once.  JK

Seriously, my father in law is and I helped him plumb quite a few houses including my own.  A 2 story house needs at least a 1" supply from the main.  Another thing to consider is the fixtures.  A lot of them have restrictions built in them to "save" water.

Wow!  It's been nearly a month since any activity on this section of the forum...
For my part, I've put another 450 miles on my TA, largely due to my wife's daily being in the shop for transmission issues.  2009 Avalanche with 188K miles on it, 6L80e trans and it went out all of a sudden.   Those are very expensive tranny's!  While it's been in the shop I've been driving the TA as my daily and that's been a hoot!  Starts up with a turn of the key and idles smoothly, well as smoothly as the cam allows for, runs well in this colder weather we've had and and just works!  I removed all the stickers from it and am going to shoot pictures to send to insurance to get that bumped up.

For sake of easy disc sourcing and identification, is there a model that only used the 1LE 12" rotor? It's not a reference widely used outside the US.

88-92 Camaro or Firebird with the special handling package (1LE)

Those are some great videos to watch! They make the assembly look easy.

Right now I’m going to do patch panels. I’ve thought about the areas I need to fix and assessed the work and find it do able. I will have it on a rotisserie soon so I think that will make the work more tolerable being able to work on it from different angles.

I'm not a licensed plumber but have done tones of renovations and like you lots of plumbing jobs including complete homes, Prior to that I also spent a lot of time working directly with and for plumbers.

If the supply to the home is 1/2" copper, then that is the reason for the low pressure when multiple water fixtures are in use and there is little that can be done except increase the supply size if reasonable and possible. The rest is not hurting or helping anything and as long as the proper fittings were used to switch back and forth between materials no harm there either.

Around here 3/4 " is used for supply and main runs with 1/2" to each fixture, this is/was the standard for many years, but even that has changed in the past 10-15yrs and now new average sized homes have 1" supply.

As you describe it, the current finished work would all be far from a tidy and professional looking and if I were doing it I'd want to clean it up, either switch to all copper or all pex.

Wow that looks so good! I should have done something similar but I just dropped it in the car after I removed it from the donor.

I like the color choice too.
