Well I think I'm just about done, put the new headliner in this week, wasn't too difficult the TMI piece was a little pricey but very nice, the plastic backing made it a no brainer I just gotta clean up the excess liner.The headlights on the other hand have me ripping my hair out I'm trying to make them sit perfect but it's aftermarket so I shouldn't expect they would.

I'm working with Steve to get this tuned next week and it should be ready for spring!

first tuning session with Steve went well ran into a few issues, I wired up the Wide-band incorrectly, leaky oil feed line at the turbo, Bad coolant temp sensor and some serious rubbing issues with the tires/alignment but I did get to drive it around the block, we'll try this again when i can properly get the car aligned and on the road if/when the DMV's open up.

As the DMV's remained closed and no options to mail in register at least in my county I decided to get a few more things done. I replaced the gas tank, and sending unit, I added spring isolators, installed a new adjustable clutch cable, quadrant and firewall adjuster.

I'm much happier with the way the car sits in the front now it was rubbing pretty bad.

Dont forget to put blades on those wipers! I think your car is the same color as my car. Except your's looks good, and isn't all chipped and scratched and generally not good looking at any distance within 100 feet....

Totally different colors. I think one of the PO of my car was trying to paint it wild strawberry. It really isn't a bad color it just needs to be stripped and repainted. Your car looks awesome!
