“Crack an egg on your head. Let the yolk drip down.”

These fucking things...I have a couple of options to deal with what's going on right now:

1. Take them to a new plating shop and have this plating removed and re-plated so the finished product fits the Jaycee torsion covers.

2. Find a set of Type 1 torsion cover plates, buy the outer bushings and see if this whole thing goes together.

If it's not horribly obvious - I've decided to go after option #2.  I measured the OD of the spring plate, found the suitable bushing and ordered them.

In spite of my organization - I cannot find the cover for the pulley shroud.  I have a NOS bolt-on cover that I'll have powder coated.  If I cannot find a suitable replacement for the one I've apparently lost - I'll drill three holes in this cover and swap it over to a bolt-on unit.

I swapped out the rear license plate wiring and the two grommets - and that was about it for the day.  I have the cargo light and the dome light wiring remaining to replace but those will wait until they're necessary - both currently work fine.

I have five days of vacation and then I'll come back and get something done on the car - and repeat that until my ass is in the seat going down the street.
