    2003 Orient Blue over dove grey 6spd

    Well, I bought another ZHP. It looks like a nice car overall. Just needs a lot of love and labor, some maintenance performed, deep cleaning the interior and inspecting engine to determine if it can be saved or needs replacement. Previous owner took intake plenum off to replace and ran out of time, money and desire to fix.

    I intend to document everything done and plan to offer the car for sale. If anyone is interested in the car as I progress or when I feel it is completed please contact me about purchasing.

    I started fiddling with the car today in between the constant rain we’ve had lately.

    I found some new replacement oem headlight lenses and oem bmw performance gloss black grills in my stash.

    Also, some fog light trim/surrounds.

    And did a very half hearted attempt at polishing hood to see if it going to have luster and depth once really worked on.

    And did a quick clean on the drivers door interior panel. I remember why I dislike light colored interiors...even after cleaning, it still looks dirty to me.

    It certainly pays off to have a spare parts repository.

    My goodness that is a lot of grey...

    Our MDX has a grey interior... needless to say with twin boys, it looks like crap... that door panel looks good though...

    I had the great misfortune of owning two blue cars with grey interior. Definitely the most disgusting interior color.
