Some hiccups along the way, but coming along nicely...

Bought my '97 last October. Since getting it back at the beginning of April, I've done:

- New roof with glass window
- New foam roof drain trays
- New full interior carpet
- Three spoke steering wheel
- New stereo
- New heater core
- New headlamps
- New shift knob
- New air filter
- New cabin filter
- Upgraded roof transmissions
- New coolant recovery tank cap
- New spark plugs and tubes
- New A/C control unit LCD
- New horns
- New wheel centre caps
- Removed the remnants of Plasti-Dip from PO

I'm about to do:

- Two new front tires
- Rear upper control arms
- Both window regulators
- Waterproof immobilizer case
- Oil change
- Coolant flush
- Rear wheel bearings
- Quick-Latch release for clamshell

The roof transmissions didn't work out for me, so I've decided to go completely manual; much more predictable and reliable.
