Yep decided to play it safe and not destroy mine as we were headed to Canada after. The rear links wouldn't let me slide up the gate keeper.

On a normal day I would have started from the bottom and tried to clear the whole thing

Messed with the car today. New mufflers and some gas tank support repair. Which backfired lol. Somebody did a shift job repairing the fuel tank supports at the trunk pan. So I added some support to the area. Which involved slight movement of the tank. Well prior to the repair I haven't filled the car more then half full. After the repair I put 3/4 of a tank of fuel and it now leaks. So either it leaked before and I just didn't know it. Or me moving the tank caused the leak. And these tank are expensive.

Haha, I like it. That paint makes it!

I bought an air filter the other day to replace the oil soaked one from the rollover. First time it's been on the drivers side. Which leaked lots of trans fluid and oil into cylinders via the valve cover to air intake breather.

I have none of these issues when it's on the pass. Side . Not sure where the trans fluid came from. Either the vent or the shift linkage. I do seep fluid from the shift shaft through the case. But this was quite a bit of fluid pretty quick.

I'll see if I have a shaft Seal in the barn for ya. C6 right?
Any way you can change the venting style on the motor? So that doesn't fill your breather, or just roll pass anger side from now on.
Haha

In prep for loonie I got back to the buggy and gave it some love.

Replaced a questionable hyd. Line.
Installed cb
Installed led light bar along with 2 more rock lights.
Topped off missing fluids
Cleaned maf and intake from rollover
New air filter
Waiting on new fan relays to come in.
Trimmed out a replacement hood, just waiting on new hood pin kits.

Still need to replace a section of brake line in the rear that got smashed.

Almost loonie ready.

I can bring 2 of those 27 watt lights for you if you don't feel like rushing your light mount. Hell I can bring 5 if you really need them
