Good day all! was created by emmanuelli
I feel quite accomplished. Compared to all the engine work most of you do yourselves its nothing, but it was a satisfying task. As it happens i replaced the Hatch and Hood struts. Now, they just about pop open when slightly pushed up! yay!. Just last week i had the seats re upholstered. The oil pan, valve cover seals, the intake seals, the steering rack and the brake pads and sensors done!

Soon enough i'll have the dash and pod done, the shifter tightened and perhaps the timing belt. However, im thinking of getting the odometer fixed first so i can actually count the miles before the next timing belt work should be done.

I will consider a paint job for next year, if things go well.

Also, thanks! i received my welcome packet!

Congratulations, Orlando. Making improvements to the car is quite rewarding, isn't it? :D

Orlando,

Might I just add to your list the replacement of your Fuel lines. All of them! If they are original they are honestly just WAITING to turn your car into a crispy critter.

I also feel very accomplished whenever I do something to my car. It's a damn good feeling! Plus, the hatch is HEAVY! I bet you were glad that was done!

Thanks for the advise, i'll put those in the queue, sooner rather than later. and yes, i feel accomplished about every little thing i can do myself.
