Replace that old faded windlace around the doors, and your car will be absolutely 100% perfect.

VERY nice.

Glad you got all the problems solved and have the car back on the road. With 2300 miles in one month the car must be working very well.

Congrats on the award. Well deserved. Let us know if you get published!!!!

Eric

Looking good- Real good Elvis.

I noticed your front door windows were untinted, is that a local law requirement I guess??

Hey Elvis,
She looks amazing! I see you put speakers in the doors and in the package tray. Did you put any anywhere else? Would like pic's of these please.
