    Amazing results. Yeah. I also regret not replacing the bracket when the new bumper grille was installed.

    I wish my bumper looked like that. Im giving the DR color chip a try to take car of some of my rock chips. its going to be a process for sure but it does work on OG. My neighbor can get OEM paint so I'm considering having him give my hood and front bumper a respray next summer. Great to see the progress!

    small update:

    recently replaced the windshield cowl. took longer than expected to get the 13 year old wiper arms off but i finally did it. new part looks much better.

    also am troubleshooting a CCV/vacuum pressure issue which is causing consumption of oil. see my post in the G.A.S CCV thread on the general forum page. replaced the dipstick tube with the updated cold weather version and it improved vacuum pressure slightly but not that much. i believe the G.A.S. CCV solution would be a good fix.

    current mileage is just a couple short of 170,000.

    update: 2/18/18
    mileage: 171,235

    replaced the hydraulic tensioner and pulley, idler pulley, and A/C tensioner and pulley. was getting a squealing from one of pulleys in cold temps. job took 3 hours and required the help of my wife to get the serp belt back on. ordered INA kits from FCP Euro for lifetime warranty. pretty amazed that all the parts were original at this mileage.

    only went for a quick spin but the car seems to be driving a bit smoother, and no more squeal.

    next thing i do for the car will be tires. thinking the Conti ExtremeContact Sports for performance/value sweet spot. should be a nice upgrade from the cheapo Chinese shoes the car was on when i bought it.

    also would like wheels (really like the Sportline CSL reps) but that's not really in my budget right now.

    the car is still consuming oil at an alarming rate. i switched to a higher thickness oil (10w-40) and it hasn't seemed to make much of a difference. i'm talking 1-2 quarts every 1000 miles or so. i fear the culprit is the piston rings/seals and a top-end rebuild is the only fix. it's got a relatively brand new CCV and updated cold weather dipstick tube. for now i'm just topping it up with oil when the yellow light comes on. oh well. don't buy high mileage cars i guess.
