        I thought the ad was good but did you notice the "leaky puddles" around the front of the car. It's just a nit pick, but not the way I'd want to show off my well maintained car.

          Pretty sure thats water, you can see it dripped all around the rear bumper.. Unless his rear bumper is leaking bumper fluid

              Getting close to finishing my lighting upgrade. Set-up is Morimito Mini H1 35W with 4500k bulbs and Morimoto XB LED 9005 6000k. These pictures are just from the passenger side assembly with the wall ~15-20' away. I am anxious to get this finished and get it on the road to see how the LED high beams perform. I have read quite a bit that the range is not as good as Halogen high beams, time will tell...

              Mini H1 Highs (I was blocking off the left most edge here while trying to block the high beam, normally the stairs would be visible)


              LED Highs:

                  Sure. Bumper fluid is filled through the blinker fluid port right?

                    which is even worse, means the paint is beat as fuck and he got it wet for pics lol.

                      Finding a clean titled car is damn near impossible anymore. SMG can be rectified fairly easily.

                        The one picture from the rear end does seem like the paint is rough.

                          Amazon fire phone on sale for $150 with free year of prime.. Hmm wonder if it can be flashed with an OS/app to display engine readouts.

                            It was good having a beer with Paolo last night. Came over to see The Rusty Lady ... lots of savable parts on the 2002! I'm thinking of making a rat rod and driving the rusty shell until it falls apart.
