    I see you have one of those retractable under hood lights. Those are sweet. I am looking for a couple more at a reasonable price.

    Yes. A novelty I picked up years ago at the junkyard. It works too and the magnetic on it makes it super handy once pulled out. I just dont have the electrical connector plugged in. Same goes for the trunk lights. Guess I have a fear of the mercury switch failing and draining the battery.

    I would be worried about the dash pad ending up in my lap when I was properly launching and powershifting that 5 speed...

    Was a concern of mine too on my first test drive. It did fine the way I drive. Not even a peep out of it. Fits in well around the vents and the rubber frog I have wedged between the glass and center of the pad does the rest of the work.

    I wanted red calipers. Went to junkyard to see what was around...all was super crusty. Hopped on rockauto and found that powerstop sells red powdercoated front 2002 calipers. I picked up new 1992 rears and then powdercoated them myself...some pics of that below.

    New rear calipers awaiting full disassembly for media blasting and powder coating:



    All apart and right caliper media blasted:



    Both calipers after blasting and outgassing...ready for powder:



    Brite red powder applied just before putting into the oven:



    After curing:



    And fully reassembled:



    Install will likely take place over the winter. New pads will go on at the same time.


    I also have a drive shaft safety loop awaiting install.

    Those seats were a great upgrade. 88-89 with the larger headrests are quite comfortable. Hope to see this car someday...
