    Wow I bought my car at the same mileage and haven't done nearly as many things to the car since then, but I also haven't started inspection 2 so that makes sense.

    It's pretty much all Inspection II related with a little OCD (aka love!) and wanting to learn/work on her more thrown in; once you start going down the list you'll catch up quick lol

    I'm aiming to stay close to the Old School Maintenance guide and I have a "pay her off" and "preventative maintenance comes first" approach before any type of real modification, sexy wheels ( ), etc so that explains it as well.

    Thanks! And yes, a big part of those future plans is keeping her looking damn good, another part is listening to Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds while driving her...
