    This was the least amount of fuel I've spilled doing this job, and I still needed a bit of time afterward to come down from the fumes.

    Hoping the radiator gets here on Thursday, since I'm off. As long as all the parts went back together well, the only thing left to look at is that rear caliper, and refreshing the diff oil. Everything else should be well maintained. I may look into grabbing a set of control arms, to swap in new bushings (that I've had in a box for 2 years) and possibly a suspension refresh.

    Gave it a proper interior clean (yesterday); have been working my ass off again so I had neglected it.

    I was able to get the Mishimoto radiator installed yesterday. Checked the drain threads, and corner welds (the common issue spots) and everything looks well-made. Got the air filter taken care of before I ran out of allotted time. Hopefully, I'll be able to drop in some coolant and take a look at the brake caliper tonight.

    I found a roll of thicc weather strip foam from another project. I used it to seal the huge gaps between the fan frame and the rad. Not sure that it will last, or help, for that matter, but in theory boxing them up is a decent idea.

    They hide imperfections very well indeed; way better than dark colours. Speaking of, got delivery of a few clay bars (different grades) plus a cquartz ceramic coating kit; hope to be sealing my paint job soon and get done with exterior for now

    I installed a gas strut trunk lift kit from Clark and Clark. I'm pretty sure it would lift just about any spoiler. I'm planning on adding the Carbonmiata Monster Spoiler soon, so I figure I'll need some extra lifting power. If you really need EXTRA lifting power, the same company makes a kit that adds a second gas strut on the right side of the trunk.

    Installation was easy and took about 10 mins.

    Pros:
    More lifting power than the OEM torsion bar
    Lifts the trunk lid all the way open when you hit the button on the remote

    Cons:
    Limits the trunk lid from opening as much as the oem set up

    Finally running, after a few crappy hiccups. Hopefully the next time I need to get under the car like that is for modification and not maintenance.
