I'm up there in MI, so no worries about overheating, just getting the carb tuned to cold start properly!  I will be needing to address that among other little small things.

Got the front end done on the both sides finally!  New rotors, pads, and re-greased the sliders on the calipers (both sides were frozen!).  Suspension replaced: struts w/ KYB Gas-a-Just, upper ball joint, lower ball joint, inner/outer tie rod ends, sway bar bushings and links, and the steering arms on both sides.  Need to do a string alignment to get it close, but it should drive much nicer now!

Also had the chance to use some of this excellent "Shinetsu" grease on all the door seals.  I've heard it is used at the plant/factory for some vehicles.  It really restores the softness to the rubber seals, also works great on trim, works much better than Back to Black.
