Outside of the cooling system stuff which I'm sure you've run through everything the only other thing off the top of my head that could cause it would be detonation and/or over advanced ignition, or being an automatic the transmission fluid running through the radiator can cause it run hot which putting in a cooler in parallel or if in a warm enough climate just the cooler, can help as well.  Strange it happened after the rebuild, I would say perhaps too much mechanical friction from tolerances being off but I'd imagine that'd have shown signs elsewhere by now.

I thought GTA mesh rims look nifty, now they have 17 reproductions. :cool:

OK guys, sit down for this one, I made a major accomplishment. I put black tape insert into one (not two) of my door handles. I ordered these and they came in for the short handles, of course my car has the long handles. I don't know why they don't sell these for the long and then they can be cut if you have short handles. Anyway, I got some black decal from a sign shop and cut it to fit. I haven't had time to turn around lately, and had this stuff sitting for some time, finally had a minute and decided to do one and see how it looked. At this rate I may have the car done about the third week of NEVER!!!

Normally, I have to get up for work at 5 am.  Today I... had to BE at work for 5 am  :shock:  Then I worked until 4:30 and went to job #2 for 6 pm.   LoL thought I was only supposed to be there until 9 pm but it was actually 10pm!!!  Needless to say I'm overtired. 

The good news is that those 2 hours of over time this morning were voluntary.  I just wanted to see if I could actually still do it. 

I'm NEVER doing this again.

Trans Am wise I started sanding on the driver side 1/4 panel and the center spoiler section.

Non Trans Am related: its the middle of exam week and exam reviews and eagle scout paperwork is piling up. Its going to be a long night.

Today I... finally fixed the exhaust leak in the flex pipe on my fathers HHR.  Man those things are junk.  Whole job took about 4 1/2 hours.  That's from the pulling in the garage, a parts run, welding/grinding, and exiting the garage.  The hardest part was indexing the new flex pipe with the existing exhaust.  I even took the time to grind down my welds this time.  I wanted it to look half decent (where normally I don't care how exhaust looks, as long as it seals)

Only thing that kind of ticked me off is that my father didn't show up until after 12 pm.  I would have liked to have started that job @ 9 am sharp.

Today I did some big time sand blasting. I bought a hanging tent to go inside my 10x10 Canopy from Academy, and hooked my Harbor Freight blasting cabinet sandblaster to a detachable air line and a 5 gallon bucket full of 80 grit black diamond. Works wonderful on stripping the paint off of the endura. I tried 80 grit glass beads first, but that was painfully slow, so I switched to the diamond and found it works much better.

Today I found out that effectively anything rear of the doors and lower than the deck lid is effectively bondo, fiberglass netting, or rust and/or any combination of the three. With the things thats been done to this Trans Am you'd think it would kill somebody to fix something the right way.

That's because most people are scum and would rather do cheap shoddy repairs and hide things to try to sell it than be up front and honest and sell it as it is for less.

Oh wow man.  Been there, done that.  I am permanently retired from sandblasting.

It's not too bad. I cover my entire body with a hoodie and coveralls, throw on a respirator, goggles, and earplugs, and I bought a plastic faceshield from Lowe's to go over that with a headlamp I strapped to it (makes it a lot easier to see when the shield starts dusting up).

My biggest pet peeve right now is the "super nice" 1/2" NPT PneumaticPlus air pressure regulator I bought from Amazon failed after 2 months of periodic usage. It's now leaking air like crazy. I tore it down to attempt to find the problem, but it does not appear to be reparable. It doesn't look like amazon will honor any kind of manufacturer's warranty, so I imagine its going to be tough to get that back. I ordered a new one from McMaster Carr last night, but I'll be pretty much down until I get that fixed. Guess it's back to sanding for a few days.

Bondo is like an iceberg, what you can see is just the tip. This 1/4 should be saveable with a lower patch panel but both rear inner 1/4s need replaced. Somebody has gone through already and used deck screws in an effort to keep the badly rusted inner 1/4 attached to the outer skin


This one is to be expected,


There is a lot more bondo on the passenger side rocker, at least it ran/moved and has solid frame rails.

That looks incredibly similar to the repair work I found on the 78 I used to have. I was washing it one day and a 4" tall section that ran the entire length from the rear bumper to the wheel well fell out. It was pure bondo with a sheet of galvanized plate backing it up. I later found that the rear floor pan was a piece of tin roof held in by rivets and aquarium sealant.

I can thankfully say that only spot of rust in my entire car is now a quarter sized soft spot in the driver front fender. Just finished the trunk pan replacement and a-pillar/window channel repairs this week. It's so nice to see clean metal everywhere again.

At least what little rust on mine is isolated to the pans and decklid, of course being anal I'd want to replace the entire pan versus just patching the one section.

I asked Santa for a T10, maybe there'll be one under my tree in a few days.

I'm actually going to have my dad help me on that.  The thing is I wanted a '62-'64 Nova or a late 1960s Chevelle for a project car. I think that in addition to a more expensive vehicle that one of those would be in similar if not worse shape than my Trans Am

Today I did lots, and lots of sanding...



I also got a bunch more sandblasting done. I should be able to finish up the front bumper tomorrow. Endura soaks up the blast like nothing I've ever seen before. It is a very slow process to get the paint off. I was beginning to dread blasting all the other stuff I'm planning on, until I hit some of the metal on the bumper. The metal stuff literally goes 10x faster. When you're blasting the Endura, you can actually see the paint being removed as the media hits, bit if you move the blaster too soon, the paint color comes back. All I can figure is the Endura is so porous and flexible that it bends under the pressure of the blaster, and when you remove the pressure it stops deforming and a new angle of the paint surface becomes visible. I've found that a very high blast angle, nearly parallel with the surface works best. If you try to blast at a 45-90 degree angle from the surface, it is almost completely ineffective.

I am getting rather tired of vacuuming up the fifty pounds of sand from the floor every 30 minutes or so. A will give a big thumbs up to the dust deputy that I bought though. You can seal it to a 5 gallon Lowe's paint bucket and put it inline between the shop vac and the hose you are using to vacuum. The media spins around inside the dust deputy and falls into the bucket, leaving your shop vac filter and bucket clean. I would have quit already if I didn't have that thing, haha.

Bumper is halfway down to endura. Hoping to get the other half done this afternoon. I can't wait to get on to the metal panels, they just go so much faster.

I'd be interested in seeing pics of this setup if possible.

Did the PITA heater core. Man I don't wish that job on anyone. Since I made the car A/C delete I thought I could just by a non A/C heater core, nope. They use different holes. So I got the A/C core and shortened the one snout. Got the heater box together only to find the one vacuum line was dry rotted. Of course it was the line that goes inside the heater box. Then I was tightening the lower hose clamp (the hard one to get to) when the clamp broke, ugh.

But it's done. Funny thing. Went for a test drive to make sure no leaks. Came to a stop sign and decided to have some fun. Pulled out sideways with rubber burning and smoke bellowing. Coming the other way was a 74 formula, dude had his hand out the window giving me the thumbs up as I past.

I much rather do the heater core than the transmission, should've arranged that somehow. :P

Oh I don't want to hear it!  We all know I'm smack dab in the middle of a transmission rebuild...

Today I had one LONG azz day.  Tried to fit tooo many things into an 18 hour period.  I'm quite tired.  I guess I'll go to bed.
