Its bad enough it wont pop out. I need to do some body work on it now. I might shave the roundel while Im at it.

Oh well I was planning on a respray of the car this winter anyway.

How it will look (minus the missing lights, finally polishing the lenses.)

And then it happens again.

Then when they stop randomly breaking, you go over railroad tracks and they just fall out.

Not technically today, but yesterday I ordred a CSB and random parts to do my guibo/csb job this weekend. Just need to pick up some exhaust clamps and trans fluid before the weekend.

Oh yeah, I did this yesterday too. Didn't come out perfect but it's better than the old CF. what do you think?

Haven't decided if I'll leave the glove box trim CF or make it match this yet.

I have the ebay headers which are supposed to work with a band clamp, but the outer pipe is too small in diameter for anything they sell. What I need to do is tack a V-band clamp to the headers, and replace the pipes going into the cat on the midpipe. I was thinking I could either cut it back to the Y going into the cat, or replace the entire midpipe and do 2, 2" pipes that go into a 3" race cat and back into two 2" pipes to meet up with the cat back. Widening up the midpipe is supposed to have a massive performance improvement, so if I'm gonna go half way there to get a good connection it seems like I might as well go full commitment on it.
