The hairline cracks on the inside (the ones that donít polish out) are caused by UV damage. It sucks because most on most cars you canít just buy a replacement lens like you could 20 years ago.

I had thought of that, but the right one doesn't have any. Maybe it's a coincidence but it's not like I park the car in half shade.

Started mocking up a tray to start controlling airflow (and so I have a place for an oil cooler)
Could I have used cardboard? Yeah. But I love playing with my wood.
It'll be aluminum or steel once the whole thing is figured out

It's just surface corrosion on a few fasteners. That hood-seal bracket's like a buck fifty.

Installed a cruise control relocation bracket. This whole install was more than I signed up for. Lost some sleep too.

Issues
ABS/Traction - Fixed - Cleared code using OBD2 cable/Techstream then ran a steering angle sensor reset.
SRS - Fixed. B1801/B1811. It was a loose airbag bypass wire. I figured out that you can push the terminal clip so it bites down on the resistor. Cleared the code and so far so good. It helps if u tin the prongs lightly with some solder.



Installed the Faction Fab Shifter bushing.


Installed Perrin/Whiteline Trans/Diff mounts. I noticed the cabin got louder. Did a short pull on the way home and the car sounds like it has a supercharger.



-Cheers

I replaced my rear diff fluid!
Sheared an adapter, tore my knuckles, and punched myself in the face but I did it all by myself

All that's left is brake fluid and race pads and ya boy's track-ready

I removed this intake blockage and replaced it with the OEM intake.
I would suggest that anyone who has a similar blockage remove it and put it up for sale. Before it's too late.
