Been kinda slow this past week & to be expected with Christmas landing on a Wednesday. Mounted one of my Wilton 1765 6 1/2" vises, Great ballast for how the Arbor Press is mounted! Though I'm still going to anchor the stand once I get it positioned exactly where I want it. The Wilton nameplate got mangled during shipping, The Snap-on plate was a whopping $2.50 through my Rep., They sell this exact vise but painted red for several hundred dollars more. Made a "Bench Tuning/Flashing" harness for GM P01 & P59 PCM's, Gotten several calls for bench tuning on DIY LSx swaps.....Easy $150 profit for 20 minutes work! 4th Gen F-body fog lamp switch for ignition, GM cooling fan connector for a fuse holder (5amp), And a Honda OBD2 port because it's cleaner/less bulky than GM ones.....Had to move a wire to match the GM serial data pin location.

What is this "Bench Tuning/Flashing"?

The ability to Flash or Tune a PCM without the vehicle by applying power/ground & accessing the PCM through the Serial Data communication line/s.

Nice shop! I have two shops one that is for woodworking and the one for vehicles. The woodworking shop is air conditioned and is hardly used. The one without the a/c is the vehicle shop and gets used frequently and I sweat. Seems like there is never enough room or tools.

Yeah, name that malaise-mobile! I'm guessing 1975 Pontiac Grand Prix.

It's a 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass that belongs to my father, It needs quite a bit of body work! But does have a 455hp LT1/8L90E out of a '17 Camaro SS, 3.73 Posi, & 4 wheel disc with Hydroboost assist. Did some tuning, UMI upper control arms,& alignment. Then it's off the body shop jail for 6-8 months. It'll look like a Hurst 442 in White/Gold when done
