so i fixed the gas line issue. apparently the previous owner rigged up some cheap crap for the fuel line. scott (local focus mech) came over and spotted it immediately. it took 2 minutes to remove the cheap line and install the (new to me but) used one. i forget what it's called.
cheap line (why didn't anyone tell me this looked odd?):
i also got lightly used wires:
got my super secret halloween mod materials
went to get the check. i figured i'd call the local u-pull yard and see if they got any new foci. guess what, they did! POOF i was there 30 seconds later. turns out, it was a BLACK '06 ZX3. for the record, this is the first hatch i've ever seen at this place. i was excited to pick at it. lol
it had a few things i wanted; like new tails, and charcoal seats in good condition. but i wouldn't blow almost $100 on seats i don't need.
anyways, i walked away with a couple goodies; color matched door trim and rear triangles and 1.5 overhead console. unfortunately, the whole driver's side door was already gone which i needed the most!
