    The exhaust heat shield broke loose on the trip here, finally got it back up and not rattling anymore. Also replaced the crank position sensor , was having a few issues with it, looks like it was factory. seems to be running better.

    Went to junk yards in Campinas Sao Paulo Brazil looking for parts for my car. I guess their version of the Astra is rare enough that it's hard to find parts for it here also.

    I did end up finding a brand new aftermarket replacement grill and brand new OEM factory replacement retractable electric mirror.

    Both were less than a new standard aftermarket mirror on eBay. Problem is they only had one side so I still have to find another one somehow. My wife and I are planning to come back at the end of the year though.

    Tried to start the SLno1. Questionable original fuel pump was crap and not working again. Figures.
    It's not my fault, blame the radiation.

    Tested fuel pressure and compression. No issues, moved to parts. Replaced all intake manifold related gaskets, deep cleaned the intake, cleaned injectors, replace MAP, TPS, and CKS, replaced plugs, wires, and coils, and installed catch can. Still my car has a hiccup at a certain throttle position every time.

    I'd throw the video up but I am on limited use and power. Damn electric company shut the power off to my house when they were supposed to transfer service in my name. Union workers on a Friday. It has been great.

    EDIT: Got it up. Video that is. If you listen close, you will notice it sounds like I double tap the throttle but I don't. That is my kryptonite this weekend.

    Does the hiccup occur only while revving at idle or also when you are driving normally?

    Any time. I took video of driving, but unless you're in the car to feel it, you can't tell. 100% throttle position based.

    Replaced the side mirrors on my wife's 09 Impala. The only ones we could find on Amazon came in black only.

    Honestly, the hardest part was hanging the door panel back on when i was reassembling.

    Attempting to add a Honda triple core and keep the ac. So far it looks like it is going to work. Lower bracket for the radiator is tacked in place. Heading to pick up some bolts for the ac condenser mounts.

    Worked on a more solid lower grille block panel this evening... previously it has been just layers of tape blocking the excessive airflow but I wanted to get away from the tape since no matter how much I use it still fails... got the coroplast panel cut to rough shape and the opening cut in it, just waiting to paint it first before the install...

    It was thoughtful of them to paint the Handi-spots Polestar blue for you.

    Right? It just works with the theme of the car and stuff, not to mention less of a walk distance for me when I'm late!

    I've been busy working on downsizing my turd footprint by throwing away a good portion of my spare parts. Tonight I'll be tearing down 3-4 transmissions, keeping 1x MP2 & MP3 gear sets, 1 case and dumping the rest of the pieces. If the weather holds out on Friday, I'll try to dump the built motor into the car on Friday and tear down the OG SOHC block so I bring the trailer load of scrap to the local yard.
