    The journey is over! New car tomorrow. The z ran well. We had rain in Austin the past couple of weeks. The wipers are interesting!

    Ha Ha You're right! It is interesting driving a 70s car to work and back. I'm old enough to remember driving 70s cars to work in the 70s and there are little things you forget about.

    Coolant temperature

    I have an infrared thermometer and checked the temp at the radiator and thermostat housing. Ran cooler with the new sensor and shroud.

    Coolant temperature

    I replaced my sensor and that improved the accuracy of the temp gauge. I also installed a shroud around the original radiator and that has helped lower the operating temp.

    Bulbs 80/100

    Would the 80/100 bulbs be ok in place of the 55/65? I need some more light with the Hella 7".
