I think your car would look good with a wheel with a lip.

What would you recommend? I'm open to suggestions. I will be participating in a 10 day long catering event. So that money will be invested on new wheels and a drop, can't wait for Eurofest this year.

I learned a valuable lesson today and hope that others will not make the same mistake. Last week, I noticed that my blower motor was running after I turned my vehicle off. The next day, my fifteen month old battery was dead so I started looking at the forums for potential solutions. Autozone was great about replacing the battery but the blower was running at normal speeds even after turning the vehicle off. I pulled fuse #50 (40 amp) which killed the blower and took a look at the cheap aftermarket FSR that I installed last August. I went down to my local Import Auto Parts shop, bought the $71. Behr FSR unit, installed it and all is well. I was lucky that JC Whitney will refund the purchase as a warranty claim but the lesson is to not be seduced by the cheap fix. Eventually, it will be too good to be true.

Hot hot valve cover gasket action. Man that thing was a pain in the ass to get off, broke a grounding strap from the ignition coil rail, so I need to find one somewhere before I can drive my car. Also doing the plugs again while I have it all apart, crazy how NGK's are $10 each! next move is to fix my code issue: P0313, P1619, and P0171 and P0174, think its my intake boot. Luckily I have a beater corolla now!

Coated the front seats in rejuvenator oil until they wouldn't accept any more and then put a coat on top of that just to be safe, covered them in black trash bags, opened the sunroof shade, and parked in the sun. I'll give it 2 days before doing pristine clean then a topcoat of 303. After that is the rear seats.

Depending on how well it works, I might try it in the Rolls Royce next.

Changed the oil and oil filter. Now I can start having fun with it! Well, until the next round of maintenance.

Jake that's not adjusted, right? Cuz I see corner poke. Also did they use your car as a paint match? It looks a bit off. Lip looks nice though!

The headrest I leatheriqued a couple days back turned out fabulously. Nice and soft. This inspired me to do my back seats today as well. Coincidentally, this is also how it looks when I transport dead prostitutes



Since the leatherique works well (and I'm now dubbing this week my 'Leatherwique') I need to girder my loins and grow the cajones necessary to tackle the big project. It will probably require sanding and dye work. It's had lexol its entire lifetime (and always garaged) but the lexol doesn't seem to work well as a conditioner since the leather is worn and creased in many places. When I start, I'll consider making it it's own thread since it's not exactly an everyday car like the E46.

My limit should be around 800, not much more than that.

Evap: What specs did you get on yours and how much did it run you?

Style 5's are nice but its really hard to pull off without a really aggressive drop and tire stretch dont know if i could do that.
