Decent pic from my phone...



Installed seat lever inserts and they don't fit perfectly. Have to figure out a way to fix that...

Cleaned her today!!





Hope to install lamin-x tail light tint if it gets warm out but I don't think I'll be able to any time soon.

Another minor cosmetic thing you could do is replace or paint over the sidemarkers

I was thinking about that. Not sure if i will just go with a light tint or what. I just got my Lamin-X tail covers in will post pics after install...

I did the lightest tint they have because the last thing I need is to get pulled over for it, and the cops around here aren't always the coolest.

Yeah, they've been awesome so far and they're a little lighter than detroits. I'd recommend them!

So I figured my car could use some seafoam...

Did it and proceeded to smoke out the gas station next to my apt. Oops.

Anyway, misfiring cyl 2+3 codes, went ahead and picked up these babies... Figured I'd need them soon anyway!

Read that seafoam likes to foul plugs... Maybe I'll save the old ones for next time I want to do it
