    yay...finally

    so tonite i'll finally be getting my car back. the original date i was going to get it back was april 15...but then i got a call that that date was incorrect and i'd get it back on may 15. that day came and went largely due to a newly discovered dent in the doorjam by the kickpanel and a junk front bumper that i purchased. so tonite i finally get to pick up my car. the last time i drove it was around february 1st when i drove it over to the shop. oh there will be pics of the reunion...whether the g/f likes it or not.

    it took 6 week to get my car back after getting the motor rebuilt after a blown rod bearing. so i know your pain, but soon very soon you'll be as happy as i was.

    You need to get that fogginess out of your headlights. BTW looks good.

    i've tried a few different compounds on the headlights combined with hand buffing and high speed buffing and even a high grit sandpaper and some wet sanding but nothing works. the plastic is actually etched and discolored. when i get the cash i'm just going to get a new pair and save myself the pain and suffering.

    Can I take a guess?

    VFN Sunoco Bolt-On hood w/line and RK Sport 3 piece spoiler?

    Congrats on getting her back. Separation does indeed make the heart grow fonder! Your Z looks great.

    correct shag. the car is a factory Y3F car...RS package. 3 piece rear spoiler and 5 piece ground effects kit. the hood is a VFN 2" cowl hood.

    thanks for looking and for the compliments.
