Yeah, you just do it on the outside. Here, lemme link you the youtube video on how to do it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_t1RBw0IGXA

Simple as that.

So... the Injen intake came in. Holy God. I never knew my car could sound, feel, and perform that cool. Haha. They say it adds 3mpg. (facepalm) well I've been burning gas having fun with the incredible throttle response. It shocked the hell out of me when I stepped on the gas and it roared, sending me to 80+mph with no issue at all, when previously it would have fiddled with the RPM's and not gotten me there.

I'll have pics and a video up tomorrow, hopefully, of the cleaned headlights and the intake.

I also found some "hub caps" that are really "lip caps" that I'll be purchasing tomorrow. Something I've been looking for forever and it'll tide me over until I find the rim's I want and I have the cash to purchase them.

Well, a video of the intake will be up as soon as I fix this problem:

Yes, that is a cracked radiator. Guess the added horsepower and old age was too much for the old 200K mile radiator. It was the last thing on my list of parts to replace... and I guess it'll come before the Eibach springs now haha. I'm going to pick up a new one for $105 today at a local shop and I'm going to be putting it in... but for now, all I can show you is pictures of things I have to do, things I've done and so on.

Ok, so I know a few people want to see this, so I'll put it up first:

Yes, that is the intake. That is also my engine with 200k miles on it.


Injen short ram cold air intake. $66.14 shipped on Ebay. Can't go wrong with that price.

I also wanted to post pictures proving that the 3M Headlight Lens Repair Kit works.
This is the left headlight lens that was originally yellowed and dirty:

Holy **** is it clean. That IS the original lens/headlight.

Here is the driver side one that I had to clean as well to get it as clean as the yellowed one that I fixed. Yes, it was actually cleaner then the new headlight!


Now on to body work. This is why I've got to get the hood repainted:


This is why you don't leave your car in public parking lots of food markets like Wegmann's:

And this is from some ******* who was driving up my drive way when I was backing out:

Those holes are from his rusty license plate screws. You see how far over the middle of his car was? Well my driveway is just over a cars width wide... so explain to me why he was not only driving over our flowers, but stupid enough to keep driving up when he sees back up lights. He didn't even honk his horn. I have to keep an eye on my left mirror in order not to rip it off when pulling out on the fence that goes down the entire drive way, and he wasn't there when I got in the car a second before. I ****ing love people.


That is why I'm replacing my corner lights with clear ones.

And the final thing I have to do for touch up, the mirrors:


After this radiator is replaced, I should have this car for another 5 years... so I'm putting the money into it.

Van?

Ugh. The pics don't show up for me. It's irritating me.

Oh! Chris! I saw a ITR in my neighborhood two days ago! First thing I noticed was the spoiler. Then the yellow... and then I was like... "hmmm, could it be?" and pulled up next to it. 5 lug, ITR badge. It was genuine. I was impressed. First real one I've seen in person.
