So on Saturday at Gateway while running my qualifying laps they had me hot lapping giving the car very little time to cool off before my next run.  I believe that the car got too hot and the thermostat took a shit.

So yesterday Cory gets the hookup for an oem thermostat from the dealer.  I get back to his house and I start tearing the car apart.  Get the old thermostat out and throw it in some boiling water and it does nothing.

Change out the thermostat, refill coolant, and 3 hours of bleeding the air out of the system its finally good to go.

I was trying to use the webcam on my computer to record a typical late night work session at Cory's, but my computer shut off halfway through and to be honest, I just finished watching it and there is a lot of dead time that I don't feel like cutting out right now and the file is too large to post on here.  Whatever.  I do have a photo of my handy paintwork on the engine cover.

It's weird because the paint I used was fluorescent pink then I put clear on, but I must have done that too soon cause it turned the paint reddish and added all the white.  I dig it though.
