Haha, funny because I was actually looking at the number of people going, all tracs almost outnumber the MR2's.

I'll be so very jealous this weekend. >_< Someone sell me a T25 that's in good condition and isn't rediculous big!

that's corky's donky dick. I'm not quite sure. I asked for the flange welded to the throttle body inlet pipe and that's what he shipped to me.

to be fair, it doesn't hit anything there but yeah... maybe I can saw off about 5 inches and have it work.

FINALLY I get to see it in all of its awesomeness instead of random pictures here and there. I love this car. Just about everything about it. Its a shame you're getting rid of it, but then I never knew you had is as long as you did. Just hope new owner takes good care of it.

I guess when a thread is 5 years old, you need a double post to resuscitate it :P

I'm probably going to attempt a headlight polish sometime in the near future.

I am not going to touch the front bumper, but may thoroughly wash and clay the paint and do a quick polish and protect. Potential buyer wasn't concerned about the bumper but I could probably have done that for about 500.

Engine runs fine and has excellent leakdown numbers. I'm going to drive it to work tomorrow. All it needs is the 90k service done. I'm going to bum some garage space for that soon.

Keep spraying the lights while you sand them. Some people just dip the paper in a water bucket and that's not enough wetness.

I use a mixture of cream wash and water in a spray bottle. Off the top of my head I forget exactly what grit paper we use, but I go through 3 stages, then polish, then wax. They come out **** every time.

Oops. Confused you with Lars for a minute.

By the way: your avatar fills me with uncomfortable awkwardness every time I see it. And not in a good way.
