I was having problems with air not moving through the dashboard vents. The vacuum lines weren't put in the right places and I didn't have any vacuum source hooked to the ball on the passenger side, front fender. I worked that out now have air flow through the vents in the center of the dashboard.

I have some transmission fluid on the floor, so I tighten up the pan bolts, they seemed a little loose. I'll check it tomorrow and see if it works.

I connected 1 wire I needed to for the electronic cruise control system. The car started very nice and easy. I checked for transmission leaks a d didn't find any. I checked the transmission fluid and it was full. That made it a good day.

I put conduit on the cruise control wires and tied them to the steering,with wire ties. This is a temporary situation, I hope I can shorten these wires.

I took the 78 El Camino down town to gas it up. The speedometer didn't work, so l need to take it apart and find the problem. I planned to check out my cruise control, but that'll have to wait until I solve this problem.

I repainted the tailgate on my 78 El Camino, with John Deere Blitz Black. My friends pushed it with a four wheeler when they helped out the transmission in it. When I tried doing it last fall, it stayed flat instead of satin. I'll have to see how it works this time.
