I crossed a major milestone tonight. After fighting the engine bay for longer than I'd like to admit, I said F it and primed then painted what I had. Does it look good? No. But I admitted to myself that short of cutting everything out and starting over, it was a moot point. I know where and how I went wrong, but don't possess the willpower to redo it at this juncture while maintaining interest in the project. So anyway, I'll move forward from here, hopefully at a reasonable pace. I'm purchasing my megasquirt ECU as soon as I get a bonus, which will be at the end of the month. Cliff notes: haven't given up. Just waiting.
