    Wow look at me, a guy with a headliner again. And also a built in roll cage... which I now have questions about potentially being a ralliart roll cage after looking at the 1994 ralliart catalogue.

    Also, the pile provideth!

    And I fixed the mirror switch which kept falling out.

    Take two on the shifter! Bushes finally arrived and it tightened it up even more than my aluminum can shim and washers. Just like when it left the factory lol.

    And I have full control of my climate again. Took it all apart, looked over the loom carefully (which was extended for when the CC was in the glovebox), then popped the replacement unit in and all is working!

    I was looking through the HyperRev Magazines and still can't really ID the roll cage.

    Pic of nothing in particular, I just like the no rust.

    I wish I had taken an expanded before shot for the interior, but I have these that kind of show it:

    Oh, and tightened the fuel pump unit down and fuel smell seems mostly gone, with the interior back in the noise inside the car is live-able again. GF (who is hero who sat in that bride for the trip) Apple watch was around 77-78db crusing inside on highway. Shock adjustments made it live-able.. I wouldn't say comfortable.

    But, softening the suspension up so much the car would squat in corners, front wheels would lift, Subaru type handling ensued. When cruising the streets I stiffened up the rear and the car is rotating better again.

    Cermic coat is holding up well enough, that v band clamp was a little loose when I went over everything

    Also under body brace kind of makes oil changes interesting, just cut up a washer fluid jug to direct fluid down.
