Yeah, brought the car in yesterday morning. I'll get it back Monday. :( That'* too long for me to not have it.

But I don't know when I will have to get the rust fixed. I will keep in touch.

Damn, what will you do for that long! Think it'll be blended nice and all? Not noticeable?

It better be. But they blended it pretty well last time, without doing the hood, and it wasn't that noticeable that the paint was new. The only thing I worry about is them repairing the bent up door so it looks new. I don't want there to be any rippling in the metal because that will be very noticeable.

The lower plastic molding on the front fender is $200. The black insert behind the 3 rectangular holes, and the black rubber strip is missing since he hit it. They were going to keep that pieceof molding instead of getting a new one, just to save my brother some money, but since those pieces are missing it would be hard to get those pieces without getting the whole molding. So I said to order a new one. I didn't want them to fudge the repair by putting a generic black thing in its place. After all, I'm not paying, and it'* my right to get my car fixed to the condition it was in before the accident. My bro will have to pay up...he'll learn his lesson hopefully.

But I've been stuck in my house since yesterday...sucks...I want my car back.

Is that you on the right in your sig? BTW your engine is clean don't say the camera made it look cleaner, only thing you could really do more then what you have is a spray, but that can be dangerous... I've cleaned mine up pretty good, but not so much on the backside...

Yup that'* me on the right.

I thought about spraying some stuff on my engine in the back since that'* hard to reach. I may do it but I'm going to be very careful if I do. But it'* pretty damn clean compared to how it was when I bought it, so I may leave it alone.

I realized i have aftermarket bulbs today... When i had them open last they said sylvania, but i didn't think twice, then again the car has 106k miles on it, so you think they woulda been out anyways... The fogs are bright too, i never really looked at them when they are on, and they aren't yellow like my avatar, they are nice and pure white . Saw zzzzekes bonne today, it was pretty damn clean, but after looking at his lights and then mine (housings) you could tell my lens was replaces recently cause it'* not pitted at all, i guess good things came out of the crash it was in, in '00.

the stock headlights are sylvania bulbs.

I just got Sylvania Silverstar headlights though and am very happy with them. They are very white and bright with a little bit of a blue tint to them. Couldn't be more happy. I had Xenon 'HID' lights before and they were actually dimmer than the stock lights! They were a brand named 'Plasma Industries'

I hate companies that put HID on their light bulb packaging, it means that it has a "HID like appearance" not an actual HID bulb. They use a standard filament bulb with a blue tint.
I have Silverstar high beams, they make a big difference over the the stock bulbs!
