IPD Endlinks, IPD Poly Trans Mount. Also stared at drivers side axle throwing grease everywhere. Should probably replace it soon....

Figured out why my driver side windshield wiper would slide down the wiper arm when I used them. Come to find out, the clip on the wiper was put on backwards, and as a result, the tab wasn't going into the hole on the wiper arm to hold it in place. So I flipped the clip around and reinstalled it, but the tab doesn't hold as it should, so I"ma throw a twist tie around it so that the tab will stay in place like it should.

Cost to fix $0.00 and a slight bit of creativeness. Cheaper than buying a new blade that didn't need replacing.

the other gold pieces are going to be repainted the same color. ( it's the same color as my wheels)

also, (hopefully) permanently fixed my ABM's... the stupid brass fitting where the bolt goes in always shakes loose. i used some liquid nails or something, i hope that keeps it put. more color-matches strut bar material:

one day.... one day i'll get the cam cover and intake manifold powdercoated matte black. i would LOVE to see that with the gold.

gutted the interior to clean the rear carpeting and see what kind of a job it is to replace/install. time consuming but not bad.

also color matched the engine bay... take a look!:

Call Mike and have him try with his lil' hands. :lol:

It can be done, but the problem is getting the clamp back on. I just used a zip there and threw the clamp in the trash.
