Ohh, ok thanks. Is it just bolted to the body? No cable attached to it like the positive does. If so I don’t see any real difference electricly than using the strut brace bolt it is also a good ground to the body.

Heard a "Nice car!" from the attendant.

A nice way to do a permanent install for your trickle charger is , see the Red cover over your + battery terminal ? Take that off and take a self tapping screw and take your end that has the small hook up for the battery tender drill that in side to the post plate . put the cover back on and wire tie you pig tail to the red battery cable behind the strut tower and it's installed permanent for the future . I also have lights installed in my engine bay so I use this as double duty . Trickle changer in the winter and I plug my lights in to it for shows for the summer . Just an idea for you ....

3. Added Black Carbon Fiber side spears.

Still have some other stuff I bought to put on but that’s another day.
looks great!

The battery tender came with a quick disconnect with ring terminals, I just unscrewed the Positive Jumper terminal under the red cap next to the strut tower and put the ring terminal over the post and replaced it, no drilling required.

Bought an elite engineering catch can

My car is at 76K, and to be honest I've beat on it a lot. This last 5K I lost around a quart or so of oil so I could use some preventative measures. It would also help me document what I am actually losing and if need be take it in for diagnosis.

I don't think she's actually burning anything, I don't see any signs of the usual oil burning symptoms, which is fine because I'd rather have to replace an old seal than worry about drinking oil due to massive blow by.

I'm paranoid about this stuff because my mother had two northstar V8 cadillacs growing up and both cars would run themselves dry in 5K if you didn't add oil regularly.

Sweet pics, but only 79mph...? That looks like at least a 90 mph stretch... oh yeah, you were taking a photo at the time...! Love the view out that windshield. I prefer to see my hood in front of me.

I had a 1966 Pontiac Tempest with a PowerGlide that would pull that stunt on me.

Bump it into neutral, don't lift, shift back to D and telephone poles looked like a picket fence.
