    Shit happens, washers are like 50 cents just annoying when you need them.

    Well, I'm still trying to piece the history of this car together. I know it originally lived in Japan and then in Dubai for some years, just don't know exactly how many. I was also told it served as an official vehicle for Japanese embassy.

    Weirdly the headliner is still holding up, looks like they only did a minor repair near the sunroof. But overall doesn't look good and I'll rewrap it in Alcantara.



    The C pillars had broken tabs and they tried to glue then and in the process they broke them even more. The also has tint which is a must in Dubai.

    Lol, I only used FCP few times and never had issues with them but I keep reading about poor packaging lately.

    I haven't had issues either. I think the washers were at least put in a bag IIRC. But there were packages like that with a lot of empty space in them with just a bit of paper stuffed in. Plenty of room for stuff to fly around or the package to get damaged

    Well, boys and girls, I already talked about it in previous posts but I finally did it. Here's the final product of my attempt at making a restoration video.



    I've been feeling for some time now it was time for a step up. I love posting pictures and write-ups and I'll keep doing it, but I feel it's time to try something new so I stepped out of my comfort zone and went with it. I toyed with a few different ideas on how to go about this and having tried some different formats, I came up with this.

    I have never done anything like this and I still have mixed feelings about it. Trying to film yourself feels weird and uncomfortable, also this is my very first time editing so be gentle with me.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    That's a fun one, isn't it. : ) Btw, smashing out glued kidney grills was oddly satisfying.

    I can imagine. When's the next one coming out?

    I looked up the Invo tires. Apparently they are made by Nitto. Pretty low treadwear rating

    Ugh, probably not for a while. I'm in the middle of the suspension overhaul and everything is taking 3 times longer when you try to film it. I want to do most of the mechanical work and pack it in part 2.

    Yeah, I looked them up later as well.

    Waiting for the outside possibility of "what have I done? Let's just scuttle the whole thing and do it as a tax write off"

    Jokes aside, loved the video
