Yeah, I seriously need an LSD, unfortunately it ain't gonna be in the budget for quite awhile . And why not get full on winter rubber?, seams like you would get enough crap weather to justify them . And have fun repainting your bumper in the spring .

lol, fair enough.

And yeah, NE salt sucks, whenever I go visit the fam in Vermont the first thing I do when I get back to Virginia is find the nearest car wash, stick 20 quarters in it and proceed to crawl around my car on my belly pressure washing every damn thing I can, so far she's rust free.

Yeah, there is no way I'd drive my car in a part of the country that got real winters. Definitely would garage it if I lived where I grew up (in Michigan). Cars start rusting after 5-7 years there.

In an attempt to fix my odometer/cluster backlights/temp gauge... I ended up only painting my gauge needles red lol, gives some nice contrast to the check engine light... It never fails to impress me how much better it looks. I shall hunt down the other problems later i guess.

Yessir.. As far as I know its only on because I havent plugged in an O2 sensor. I have to cut a new hole in the exhaust and weld a bung so I can relocate the sensor.. However, I need a code reader so i can see if something else is wrong.
