    Exterior almost buttoned up today. Just need the undertray and fender liners done! Then the interior needs done. But she's just about drivable!
    Side note: aftermarket fenders suck. That is all.

    Minor setback. Drove 16 miles all seemed good. Opened the garage door the next morning to a puddle of coolant on the ground. Crap. Stealership says 220 bucks to replace lower radiator hose(brand new). I controlled my initial reaction and said no thanks. Removed fan and looked closer. It appears there is a crack at the radiator/hose outlet, and not actually the hose. Ordered a mishimoto all aluminum replacement. Current pics!

    Busy day today. Got some vinyl done. The navy on the sides, and the trunklid. Went to put one of the roundels on and completely effed it up. I need a pro to do it. Most definitely beyond my abilities. Will need to get replacements.
    After discovering the coolant leak, i took it to the dealer where they said lower coolant hose. 220 to replace. I almost laughed in their face but didn't. I did a more thorough inspection than them I guess and discovered it was a crack in the seam of the tank and lower hose outlet. Ordered a Mishimoto all aluminum replacement and took a couple hours and replaced it. No leaks and car seems to be running great. Currently car is having coat of wax/protectant put on, and will get it back tomorrow afternoon. So I Will know more about how it's running Saturday when I finally go for a shakedown cruise.

    While I'm waiting to get the vinyl done, (I ruined one star trying to do it myself, had to find pro to do it.)I decided to get my door panels assembled. The mounting holes for joining lower portion to armrest were fine on one side but 4 or 4 on the other side were destroyed. I found a 3d part online that is designed for repairing them. Sand remaining portion to a point where this fits over them and glue in place. Works great!
