Well put my new bumper and fender on today. This is the second bumper I got that barely fit where it meets the fender. Guess I'm gonna have to heat it up and hope it fits. Next on the list to do it sand the hood down and the other fender and primer then the front end is done.

Try having the bolts loose and moving the bumper and fender around a tad?

I see most going for around $5000....Like I said I offered him $2800 Because of its Condition. He wanted $3500 For it but I told him no. My original Offer was $2500, But he got kind upset about the whole Coilover Suspension and Detachable steering wheel, so I said $2800 Final.

So I have had a fun half hour since I have been awake. My mom woke me up to change her tire so she could go to work (slow leak which is quickly turning into a not-so-slow leak). Cold as balls outside, but hey I'm helping my mom. The stock bar (I am just now realizing I don't know what that is called) to change the lugs wouldn't fit, so GOOD NEWS I get the opportunity to open up my new tool set. Quick-release sockets. Nice!

Unfortunately whoever put her wheel back on last (either Sam's or the shop that fixed her car after the accident) stripped one of the lugs, so I can't take the wheel off. So my mother is most likely just going to take the day off to go get it fixed.

TL;DR version:
Good: Opened new tools. Quick release sockets. Ratcheting screwdriver (why? idk, but it's awesome). Mom gets the day off.
Bad: Cold. Flat tire. Stripped lug nut.

It's the driver side, the bumper looks to be bent out so when I try and put the screw in for the last hole it won't line up and the other ones come out. I ha to zip tie the last one which is only temporary

on that note,
i still have some difficulty closing my hood. it never wants to fully allow the latch to engage, so i kinda have to slam it shut, and that doesnt always work.
i used to think it was because of my battery relocation to over the DS engine mount, but its something different.
