Found the slightest leak in the bottom front corner of my VCG today. Just means now my gasket overhaul project is going to happen sooner than I thought.

Installed TMS rear Camber arms. One lower bushing bolt was severly seized. Made it a 5 hour job.

Nighttime vision is incredible with these bulbs, just my luck the backroads even had some fog tonight and I got a chance to test them out.
Not sure if I like the actual look of how the car lights up from the exterior, but this is for sure a functional upgrade.

Picked up a roll of butyl tape at NAPA this morning. Finally had to replace the rear window regulator I had been avoiding for many months. Thanks to the DIY on this forum it was relatively painless. At least I won't be afraid to open that window now!

Getting my smoked corners with invisibulbs from khoalty today. Since I just painted my headlight bowls black and I have black headlight inserts along with gloss black kidney grills the clear corners no longer look right. Can't wait to get them, pictures will be up soon.

Just depreciated the value of the car a little. Hit 140k miles today

Noticed one of the fog light bulbs are out. Found a new set in my parts bin, going to install it now.

Can't wait for my Nokya bulbs. The other day I went to turn on my fogs and nothing. Checked my fuse on the wiring harness and it was melted...
