Last weekend installed
-new wheels (actually more like this month)
-front brakes (upgrade!)
-stop tech stainless lines
-sway bar end links (because rein turns out to be garbage)
-axle reboot (greasy nightmare)
-full flush with liqimoly dot 5.1 fluid

Next I would like to install
-led bulbs for tails and reverse
-rear brake upgrade
-refresh the plate frames

Wow! Nice upgrade.

I only replaced a missing "Auto" button. It went flying a week ago. It's probably behind the ash tray. I didn't find it while vacuuming the front carpet.

Bought a new interlock cable to hopefully fix the Witch's problem.

Stopped at the mall and wife said "Look, it's just like daddy's car.." and then made sure I got these pictures.

I mean it's funny, but her patience is seems to be failing
