Any suggestions?
I just followed Yorgi,s DIY and have no problems. Ive always have done a through cleaning of parts before reinstalling on a vehicle. For any job I think that is one of the biggest things you can do....

I have always liked working on my own cars but this is the first foreign car I've ever worked on. Its a good feeling to work on cars and do a good job. Having access to a lift and all the tools I need for any job makes a big difference though.....

Next job I think is some body styling.... And some seat work. I've worn a spont on my drivers seat from getting in and out of the car.....
