I though the corner marker lights I sold you were not broken :(
They weren’t broken when I got them, but they somehow are now. I plan to just fix them since I haven’t been able to find another set of non broken ones.

Yeah I am going to roll them for sure. Should have had the painter do it before he painted the car but oh well.

I keep considering that lip but I don’t really like the look, but that rarity really makes me want to buy it.

Hopefully I am able to get this on without removing the rear window, thoughts on this NOSYT?

The upper one I was able to get back in decent enough that it's not going anywhere plus the spoiler holds it in too now. It was the lower one there is no way I could get it to stay on

New vs Old. I was able to find a brand new one for the driver side, but have had no such luck for the passenger side.

Yesterday with the help of Josh I was able to wire my reverse lights and neutral switch.

My list of things to do has dwindled down to almost nothing. As of now the only things keeping me from driving is the tie rod end that I cant break loose and having a piece of exhaust fabbed, although I could drive it with just an open header.

Have you tried a torch to the tie rod end?

Ok gentleman! I finally was able to remove the old tie rod and replace with the help of a friend, so both sides are now connected to the knuckles and straightened up with a hillbilly alignment.

Also, was able to back the car from the driveway into the garage! It drives!!

Idle is too high, at 2k rpm's. Any ideas?
