    Imola Red Sedan Project/Maintenance Thread

    Well after a year of ownership, it was time to make an actual project thread for my not soo special ZHP.

    What took so long, Vas? Camping pictures looks great. I haven't gone camping in a while... not since Skala in 2010 or 2011. Gotta go next summer!

    I remember skala camping trips. Those were great and a beautiful place.

    As far a thread, I usually mods cars as a fairly decent pace so there are constant updates. With buying a house money is tight and is more focused on upkeep of the car.

    Lol guys.

    Sometimes I do miss the armrest for storing stuff but the majority of the time it got in the way for me.
