1. Although not completely out of the realm of possibility, the chance is negligible for failure of a currently-functioning fitting seal.

2. For anything else, that compressor comes out.

That is the problem, compressors like to run.

I've only put a couple hundred miles (if that) on my motor since I got it running so... It's not like I had a lot of opportunity. Once I got refrigerant in it, I started using it right away, and consistently. Weird thing is, I ran vacuum on it with no leak. Twice. Still leaked out

Had a leaking front strut (OEM so almost 7 years old and 50k+ miles), so went ahead and put Bilstein B8s all around. Should've just done it when I put the TRD springs on a few months ago, but who doesn't love doing things twice (Three times if I count replacing the upper mounts a while back)?

Gave it a wash and wax and took it for a casual drive. It’s amazing how many looks you get with a freshly waxed car.

A Porsche tried to race me. I didn’t want to embarrass him so backed off

Tossed on a master cylinder brace.
Probably the easiest thing I've done to the car aside from air filter.

Maybe it was just trying to keep up with you to admire your freshly waxed car -

A hint for you, you don't have to wax the whole car - just that hump on the left front fender, to see it shine, as you are driving the car.

Yes, for track days, waxing the front end will make a difference, the sides and back, not so much -

Finally made the custom center-exit catback exhaust I always wanted to build for the last 5'ish years...



Video clip of it..



It's not 100% done-done, but functionally done... little bit of work left on reducing the tip back some.

They thread I made on it is here: https://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=135940

Also installed Torque Solution shifter rear bushing and driveshaft carrier bearing support bushings since right there for exhaust work.
