Got a replacement set of blades, fenders, and an extra valve cover from the junkyard. VC will be powder coated to look like a Type S version. These were going to be things done 2-3 years down the road, but since the junkyard car was NHBP we thought it would be best to get the fenders now.

Yep. Got a replacement bumper cover today as well, going to put all this stuff on the car before long, and looking at headers and ECU programs for later this year. I also want to buy those 440 injectors from you guys at some point...

I have them, they will remain unused.  Let me know when you're ready for them.  I have to buy some big injectors when I throw the SC and 9psi pulley on the car.

I'm doing the door trim restore for Michaels 30th birthday....since he turned 29 today, there's plenty of time.

^^ what's on the car now.


^^ a good start on removal of the old coating.


^^ dremel to the junkyard parts nearly done.
Some hand sanding to level out edges and remove gouges then a base coat of oil base brush on coating, a 30 day cure, then texture applied.
