Installed a factory black grille and an ams/infiniti heat exchanger. Anyone else have 83 of those plastic body panel push pin thingies left over after that? 😂

Lol there’s always left over fasteners. Good work on the install!

Thanks! I've never used an air lift tool before so that was fun. Had to top off the coolant reservoir a couple of times after the install and made sure to burp the HE when done. But it everything seems to be working fine. Either that or my excitement has me overlooking two cooked water pumps lol.

Lmao, nah I doubt you cooked the pumps. It’s not as scary a job as people think, it’s just messy and important to get it right. Sounds like you did

Okay, okay. You guys have shamed me into putting in the low pressure fuel pump. So that's done now.

On that note, I hope whichever engineer decided to put the IPDM in that crap location gets bitten by their dog when they get home.

Got the trans mount installed! Haven't driven it yet. Crazy how much I was able to flex the stock one with just my hands though.

Have a couple of work meetings, then gotta take my daughter to gymnastics. Then I finally have some me time and going to install the subframe collars and diff brace.

Yay for progress!
