Default My ride- The Golden Wok

It'* a 98 SE. It was bought in CT by Bill Boost and taken back to his place for some much needed TLC...
Here'* how he got it



Dirty nasty motor, turned out dirtier under the cover.


The trunk crud was over an inch deep


Awesome door lights


There'* more, but I won't go into all the gory details



Here'* a list of what all Bill did to her

First it started with an engine bay cleaning or two. Then it was allowed in the garage.

Aluminum LIM gaskets
Plugged the UIM (2003 stamped on it)
Cleaned TB
Gutted airbox
Repaired airbox
New radiator support
Adjusted lower radiator support back to it'* correct location
Cleaned where the airbox is located
Trans service
Repaired passenger axle
oil change
Replaced both door speaker grills
Replaced door light and other door light bulb
Wipers
Peeled Tint, (illegal in PA) and cleaned windows
Fix back window motor (remove and reinstall..nothing wrong)
Paint and replace driver mirror
Paint passenger mirror
Mount and balance two new tires
Alignment
Check and replace bulbs
New front bumper support
New fog light and bracket
New rear bumper cover and paint
Clean engine again
Badnit, Tony and Bill washed the car...
Tom allowed me to use his polisher and supplies to clean and polish the paint
Put spare cover etc back properly
Checked brakes and adjusted as needed

There'* more...who remembers though.

And here'* how I got it

There are some mods planned for this summer...no garage in this climate makes it hard to get stuff done over the winter.
