Sucks that it has to wait.. My wife doesn't really car how long I spend working on something, it gets me out of the house so she can clean/relax/whatever hah. And she works a lot of night shifts now, so I get more project time lol.

When you gonna put your hatch trim back in?

yeah, maybe monday she'll have some homework to do so i can get out. lol

my hatch panel is off because my hatch door is still mis-aligned. when i was rear ended, i put the door on and it never sat flush. so i just leave it off for whenever i feel like working in it. which actually rarely happens, cause it just pisses me off.



no time for exhaust install, so i mounted a lip. iknow it's not perfect, but it's just temporary.
