If I'm not mistaken, that LIM in the picture is mine. Nice try though.

I have another one on the way from MN as well.

drivejohn found some water in my outside passenger tail when he was here last weekend. Really surprised me with the care I take with them. I'd never know it myself. It took him driving behind me with the turn signal on to see it because of the tint.

I applied the lessons learned on lilpooky'* Neon to fix it right this time.

Pete, I'm curious about the headrest as well. Was it just the one that was wrong? How do the endlinks 'ride' now? Car run smoother? Rim swap pics?

Reminds me of my most famous (and repeated) signature worthy quote. Describing the sound of the two 93 SSEi'* the last time DrJay and I got together in WA before he moved East.

"Our cars running side by side scream like two 16 year old girls watching the exorcist"

More pics to come...once I load more.

The all you can carry was a first time thing that I am aware of at this yard. The guy on the way out..also said next time..it'll be all you can carry in your arms. I'll use a trunk liner to gather it up.

98 mystique would be tough..but you never know. Matt...That LIM hasn't gone yet...

Had a lot of requests for coils and ICM'* lately.. Especially grabbed these for the mounting plates. Being a $20 all you can carry...and not being out to profit from fellow clubbers... I will price accordingly. I strive to get the cost of parts, shipping, some gas money and a little extra for say breakfast/time.

Bill, both headrests were NOT tilters. I only was able to find one at the junkyard. But the passenger doesn't need one. As long as I have one I'm happy I was not even expecting to find one. I used my leather and took it off in my own way. The endlinks seem to have helped a good amount. My struts are not that great though, so I think that may be hindering the 'feel' of the new endlinks. The car runs and idles a little smoother. Bill used some RTV over the hole in the EGR tube and it helped. I'll get a new EGR tube sometime soon.

I took the leather off my old non-tilter by taking the foam out. I really didn't want to rip the leather because it is perfect, so I killed my headrest so it came off easily. I figured it would be easier to take the headrest OUT of the seat if it didn't have the foam in the way. Bill put my leather on the new tilter while he was talking to Don on the phone
