    Yeah, that was a huge waste of my time since the cable was gone. Not the brightest move but its on the car which is the main point.

    Spent some time working on it yesterday and I dropped in the silver vent from my old hood into the new hood. I have the black hood vent but it is oxidized and missing some of the hardware to get the windshield sprayers nozzles working. Also put the hood struts in, attach the ground wire on the hood, reinstalled weather strips, and gave it a look over. Will have some photos up shortly once my iphone comes back from the dead

    I like it to and I found someone who will do a wrap for $100 plus beer.

    I will most likely go this route for the short term. There are a few imperfections with the hood, so I may keep my eyes open for one that is in tip top shape and is painted Silbergrau metallic. Now that I have a hood, I can shop around without a deadline.

    i think it's ok. Would look better in CF. But I don't think our cars aren't aggressive enough to really run it. But you really need some clears

    BTW, do you have any more of that fuel line hoses and the vacuum hoses? Can I buy the rest off you? lol Someone in my household threw them away All the places that can order it says it will come like after the 17th for some reason. I won't even be here lol

    I have some of various sizes you can just have if you want to come pick them up from me. I'll have to double check if I have the right sizes left for the fuel filter job. O'Reillys or AutoZone or any parts store will stock the hoses in many sizes and cost is a little over a dollar per linear foot. I picked up mine from an O'Reillys and was less than 5 dollars for what I needed to replace the fuel filter.

    I'll dig through my remnants this weekend and let me know if you still need it.

    Hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season and Happy New Year!

    It always seems that my car likes to break down right before I go on vacation so that is a story to share. Have a lot of new parts on the way to start the new year off right!

    Also, I am having phantom electrical issues that have been happening a little more frequently which is a total head scratcher. I have a ton of photos to sort through and resize but I will have a good update for everyone later tomorrow.

    Car rolled by 125,000 today as well which is a good mile stone. 21,000 miles under my ownership

    After a very long absence from the forum, I will be returning and updating my thread! I have done lots of work as of late and have been learning a lot about data logging and California Smog testing as my car hasn't been able to pass for quite some time now.

    I may stay a new thread to continue my contributions to the site / community but just wanted to let everyone know that I am back! I will be answering PMs again and I know a big part of my current thread is about what to do if you end up in accident, and your insurance company deems your car "total". This is something many folks reached out to me about, and I feel bad for going inactive and ditching everyone here who have been extremely helpful to me! Time for me to pay it forward once again!
