Default K5 is Alive

Had to take a break from fighting with vacuum control switches and custom steering and brake booster fitment problems and do some wiring.

Found some pretty kewl seats on eBay ..... new leather takeouts ... around $140 each.
Bought two for the back as well, bracket mods will be fun.

Finally got it started .... a few leaks .... valve cover gasket and heater hose .... but we are running.



Now that it 'goes', it kinda makes sense we make sure it stops. Install went quick, but the new rotor won't snug up to the old hub tightly .... so we ain't done yet.

You guys have a thread running on it? Plenty of interesting technical crap to share I'm sure.
