Yeah, it was getting late, I rushed, and definitely took a tiny chunk out of the new dizzy gasket. Now that I know what I’m doing, it’s only $4 and ten minutes away from a new one though ^_^
I gave the Permatex 20 of the 24 hours it needed to set, and then my resolve broke and I went driving. I really don’t know how to convey the difference. The car absolutely purrs now, and feels way more responsive coming out of stops, it’s also several magnitudes smoother on the interstate (could be the tires, they leak and I recently pumped them up). It’s possible that I’m re-adjusting from driving my dad’s old Mercury for a few days, but in any case, I’m totally infatuated with the changes.
Also, while I was test-driving on the interstate, I passed a small accident and got to help out and put my little pop-up cones to use
Tomorrow I promise I’ll get a chance to look over the receipts and upload a few more pictures!
