    Interior is still not all the way back together. I need to locate some interior A pillar trims, or do something with the ones I have. Also need to figure something out for the rear quarter window trim. The quarter window trim out of this one is almost more like a fiberglass material than plastic. A bunch of the metal "clips" on the backside of the drivers side one are broke off. Its not vinyl wrapped like other SL/RT/VR4/TT ones I have seen either. I'm thinking because it is an early 91. I also never finished putting the rear hatch trim all back because I still need to redo the center reverse panel and don't want to put that stuff back, then take it back out again.

    There are lots of little detail things I want to do that now won't be a hinderance getting in the way of getting the car done. I just need to find the time (and energy) to do them.

    I did realize I have to take the front bumper cover back off again. I forgot to reinstall the coolant overflow (have 99 style) and unless I am missing something it is impossible to install with the bumper cover on.

    Seems to be running good. Temp is staying good, even in this heat. I think I still have a bit of an oil leak, but I really don't care any more at this point.

    Brian,

    In case you interpreted my queries as negative, I have nothing but COMPLETE ADMIRATION for what you have done.
    I teased you for years, but I hope you can look back and say "Hey, maybe he was trying to light a fire under my butt"....

    You took two "shells" and turned them into one BEAUTIFUL machine. Nothing but pure passion, desire, and a bit of craziness could have accomplished that....
    I hope you enjoy it for a LONG time....

    Not sure what camera you use to take your pics, but when you take THE perfect one, please send it to bstirling@yahoo.com. I would like to use it as one of my two background pics [two monitors] (seriously).

    Great, no, FUCKING FANTASTIC job...

    Bob.

    No, not taken as negative at all Bob.

    Once I get a few more things taken care of I want to plan a photo shoot. Pics I've been posting lately were just taken on my phone, but when I do a shoot I will use my Nikon P&S (like 16MP IIRC)> I might even try to bust out my old Pentax (less MP but more variables and adjustments) just to see if I can remember how to use everything.

    I need to just go for a drive and scout picture locations. With the heat of the summer upon us "nature" photoshoot doesn't seem promising. We'll see what I can come up with and I'll send you high res pictures.

    Brian, I've gotta add my sentiments to Bob's - the car looks fantastic, and that blue...if it wasn't a car, I'd give it a good lick.
    Ranked No. #1 in initial quality

    Idiots, simply by being idiots, seem capable of achieving randomly bad things that are beyond the imaginings of sensible people.

    Hey, are your Villains missing the center-caps?

    Love to see what my "Dark Argent" wheels would look like with the blue.

    Yeah. I only ever had two caps since I got the wheels and they weren't even in good shape and Konig doesn't make those caps any more. I had some "universal" ones but ended up losing two. Its weird because I bought the same centers for the Lancer's Villains and they haven't budged. I actually just put a set of centers back in my Amazon shopping cart for them.

    I actually thought about throwing the Lancer wheels on just to see how the burnt bronze looked against the blue, but honestly I think the silver really works well with it.

    I think the only thing the exterior needs to be "finished" is a splitter and I started really considering the Retro Spec side skirt splitters. Saw them on Englert's (FamilyMan) car in his Rocky Mountain Race Week videos last week and they really add something to the appearance.
