Yes it is. Came out much better this time. All I need to do to the interior is new center console trays, center console and wrap headliner black.

Got washer tank, SAP, subframe brace, and header bolts off. Next is figuring out how to remove those pesky headers without removing the engine mount.

Opened her up and drove her home, after sitting at the airport for 5 days. Went to Orlando for a few days and got a craptacular Chevy Aveo as a rental. Never missed my car so much.

Oil change and a new oil level sensor. Car feels spunkier and no more orange oil light.

Used some forever black on bumper pieces and side moldings. Looks good, we'll see how it holds up.

I also changed my rear differential fluid a couple of weeks ago with redline fluid. At 135k I figure it was due!

I just got around to getting a black grill, painted reflectors, removed front plate and did a little of back to black.

Finally had some free time to finish changing out the door panel clips with the updated style with gaskets. Hopefully the random rattles are gone
