AC System Upgrade and more 

Well on the way home from the shop after getting the hydros upgrades, I blew a belt and the engine overheated. It caused the coolant lines to build up excessive pressure and blow a hole in the heater coil. So now I have antifreeze all in the car. Mind you this is 3 weeks before the Torres Empire show (huge show in LA that I’ve always wanted to go to and now have over $500 invested in the trip) so now instead of just removing the heater coil and leaving the ac components in the engine for looks I decided to order a Vintage Air system and get to work.

I have 1 week for the show, still waiting on a couple other parts to add to the work. But I’ve started and am committed to getting this baby ready. So far I tore everything out and painted a bunch of stuff while out. Today I am replacing the radiator, installing a new chrome power steering pump, replacing the plug wires, cleaning up the wiring in the engine bay, and starting to install the AC system.

Wish me luck!

Total Cost: $3,000

Any one got any ideas on trying to fix a tranny? My BA10/5 is stuck in 4th. Is there any way I can try and get it to shift again or is it just done?
