So much care, attention and patience given to this car… so fabulous to see a car of this nature taken to this level… so many people just drive these cars into ground, giving them no care or attention. A car of this level of cleanliness is perfect for the modifications you've put into it… look forward to seeing the future of the car.

Any car is a good car in my eyes, if it's cared for, maintained and cleaned properly… and this one fits the bill !!

Darn right!

Nothing is more disturbing than someone building a car and then letting it go to poop.

Keep it up FreeFocus. You're dripping wet sedan is literally a benchmark for me now. With all the sealant and wax on my car I'm not even close to this level of clean.

Well I appreciate it Neal, thanks, keep trying!!! You'll never catch me!!

Thanks Nate, you just fixed your plastidip job not to long ago[twothumbs]. And for chasing Micah away lol

As for update. Package is still in Oregon??? From east coast to Oregon??! I'm am going with the "it jumped on the wrong truck" scenario. Another package is due as well.

Painted part of the engine bay after I got done waxing it. I was trying to match the chrome look on the SRI.....may change some of the colors.

Some toreador red spray paint was bought today and some antifreeze because I am flirting with the low line.

Car is running fine again. No shifting issues. I reset the ECU again and that seemed to fix the issue. Wow is that a relief. Am still getting about 30-31 mpg so I am doing good in regards to that as well.

I'm pretty jealous of how good yours cleans up. Mine wasn't cared for by the previous owner and there's things that drive me nuts.

And proud of it Nate!! Wow that is a little more. At least you know how to do it now and have the hands on experience. Don't know if I could have the heart to paint mine should I ever need to.

Yeah when I bought the car it had 3 year old leaves under the hood, in the trunk cracks. Basketball
material imprints/markings all over it from. Grime caked on, hand prints. Well it was never washed or garaged. Came with 3 dents and a piece of the headliner poked though with something they were hauling. Interior is spotless though.

I don't know Brennan, yours looked pretty darn good that day it rolled up next to me.

Yea I enjoy making it look better. Wash and wax often. Buffed once and need to again. But theres chips all over and the front bumper is destroyed where bug splats have eaten through. I have a paint and clear kit for it but its been too cold.

Thanks! Na not my stock wheels...BUT! I have some SVT 5 spoke wheels siting in my room that I bought. 2 have bends that will get fixed. And then I will be painting them white.

They will be the dedicated summer wheels and then the stock ones I have on now will the winter wheels.
