    Right... sorry! I just thought that would be a good time to make some notes on comparing the two setups. I just haven't seen any activity on the meetup thread.

    Added window vent visors today. They were the adhesive tape style and look good. Got them on Amazon............

    I installed factory driving lights that I got from member FrankA05. I had to completely remove both inner fender/wheel well liners to do this. You can't just remove some clips and pull it back. While these were off, I cleaned the dirt from the firewall and lower fender area and sprayed some fluid film in there to save time for when I do rust proof it................

    Thanks. I just went through this thread and fixed all the missing images. The Space Peanut now has 12,000 miles on it and we really have no complaints and had zero issues with the car. The MPG's are 42-46 depending on if the A/C is on or not. Once I put the stock wheels and tires back on near winter those numbers will go back up.

    The only upgrade to do is tint the windows and the car should be finished as far as I am concerned.
