Switched to the small covers. :cool:

Also replaced the clutch, control arm bushings, axles, ball joints, hub bearings, tie rod ends, tie rod boots, front brake rotors, front brake pads, front brake calipers and machined lug bolts to run these covers.

Excited to get it aligned and see how it handles with all the new parts! :D

What brand are your tail lights, bannana lights and front turns?

Where did you get them?

The tails are the same brand that makes the red/clear, but back in the day they made smoked. I was lucky enough to find a NOS set in the classifieds a couple of years ago! :cool: The turns are "euro mk1" clears that i mounted using the stock lights as brackets. The banana lights are normal clear ones. I used model paint to smoke the turns and banana lights to match the tails.

Thanks for the comments! Definitely appreciated! :thumbup:

Proof of how simple a baller car can be. Love this.
The car was too clean to molest, so simplifying has kind of been the theme.

this is the perfect height to look good and still be functional in the twisties!:thumbup:
It's a pretty good balance. Respectable amount of lows, but allows me to drive most places. I just measured today and it was 20 1/4" fender-to-ground all arround.

OG paint? either way, beautiful :thumbup:
Yes. OG everything! The car is a survivor. 75k mi., no rust, no wreck car. Engine and interior are really clean, too. It's far from perfect, but overall solid and clean. I go back and forth on whether to paint it or not.
