Everything fit well, but bad juju hit again when the left-side caliper developed an instant leak. Things can always go wrong, but it's the way in which the problem is resolved that matters. The folks at Right Stuff guessed that the mounting surface on the caliper for the hose may have been nicked in transit, creating a small exit path for the brake fluid. They suggested taking a look at that surface. Sure enough, there was a small nick that didn't allow the copper washer to properly seat. Careful work with a file eliminated the nick, and when reassembled, the connection was dry.

With the engine and transmission in place, a lot of work could be done that couldn't have been done before. Many engine compartment components could now be added, and smaller components, such as the MSD box and accessory gauges, could be installed.

Many of the A-990 specific components still need to be installed to give the car the correct look-stay tuned.
