34MPG combined back and forth to work. Better than the 32 I was getting before the Washington trip.



It desperately needs an intake. It just sucks in hot air and makes the water temps skyrocket.



And I found a broken wire in the drivers side running light. That's why it wasn't turning on. Thinking about some headlights for it, inexpensive H1 projectors, so I'll probably fix it when I do that if I do that.

Ordered bits for another projector retrofit. Yay! Those OE headlight are worst than terrible.

It looks like 1 projector has more light than both OE headlights. I'm really impressed with these for $23 bucks shipped from amazon. Got both finished and installed this AM. Can't wait for dark to aim them and see how they do!



I'm trying to buff the lenses as I just reused my old housings. The lenses are meh. They distort the cutoff since they are not is real good shape. Didn't want to spend the $150 for new housings.



PCs will come later and be added to the electrical section. Should have done a how to.

Well, looks like I'm slacking. Need to get headlight pics.



Car is at 306,000 miles and still limping along! Fart can still as horrible as ever and starting to have some timing chain rattle. Still needs a clutch.

I like it and I don't. It's got no power and sounds like shit but gets good MPGs and is comfortable. The tranny hasn't maraculously gotten any better.



Was given some little Pilot glass 55w spot lights. Thinking of doing those for fogs. Get them as low as possible.
