That'* about how much it costs me to fill up with premium.

i did this. it looks freakin awesome in person. still need to clear and figure out what to do with the buttons. theyre gonna look like crap next to that paint. there all worn out from being out in the elements for 2 years. im contemplating maybe a balloon or something. keeps the same texture without being able to wear off.

Started Mum'* car today. Had a lifter pinging but it pumped up. After the car warmed up and was at idle it ran smooth; smooth idle. However, noticed that it was a bit rough when increasing the rpms. Oh, it only has around 1/4 tank or less of fuel so there is not a lot of that 10 year old fuel in the tank. Might just do as suggested and add some fuel conditioner to the tank; I am sure from sitting 10 years there is condensation in the tank. It has a new fuel tank on it; put on sometime before the 10 years but can not remember how long before. I intend to pull the plugs and examine then. Noticed the PCV valve from the valve cover to the intake is missing; that could have been missing when Mum was driving the car.
