    thanks fellas!

    now i'm trying to decide on whether to get a professional to put a floor coating or not.

    right now it will cost more than it takes to install an ac for the shop. so I'll be getting the kits and do a cheap job to protect the floor for a few years. There are a couple decent kits that have had positive reviews.

    I'd rather have AC than a nice floor.

    I've also looked at stain which looks cool but really doesn't provide an protection and I'd have to put a clear on it to seal it but its still a cool looking effect.

    Default Day 3248 "It has no power!"

    Unfortunately a couple weeks ago I was returning home from work and 1 mile from the house I began to smell some fluid hitting exhaust. It was not an oil smell but it was sudden and pretty strong so I panicked. I looked behind me and there was a plume of smoke trailing behind me so I cut the car off and coasted into the driveway.
    Turns out the Power Steering Pump took a dump and made a mess. Since I'm in the middle of house construction I didn't fix it right away. Eventually, I wanted to get it back on the road and I'm pretty sure that was a parts house Pump. So I ordered a reman'd AcDelco PS Pump in the hopes it lasts more than a couple years.
    I'm still not able to use the shop.... bummer. But the good news is that I'm about ready to get a floor coating to put on it so I can work with messy fluids and not stain the floor. Hopefully in the next few weeks I can post about that.
    The mess
    Pool of fluid on the K member
    Covered the hood

    Not a drop left in the reservoir
    It took a minute to get that pulley off the pump. I had to get a hose clamp around the pulley tool to keep it from slipping off and then an impact drill to try and break it loose. I certainly wasn't going to be able to wrench it by hand. It was tight.
    A couple hours later I finally had a pulley free and a new pump ready to go in.
    The rest is SOP. Its back on the road and I'm happy to have my car back 😀
    Its filthy from just 2 weeks on sitting.... :-\ Maybe today's rain tsunami will knock off all that and make it look half way decent.

    Glad to hear you got it fixed.
    That pulley is a pain in the neck to remove.
    Hopefully the new pump lasts for a long time.

    me too. Working on cleaning off the shelves with parts that had planned to install during the SC install. so there are more small updates to come shortly. I went ahead and installed some of them.
