Since the car has finally been running shit kind of went south for me. wife left me for another dude so I have been trying to bounce back from that. My gift to myself for trudging on through that shit was a full wrapp. A friend and I wrapped the car within two weeks time between my part time jobs. We also deleted the side moldings as well as restored some of the exterior trim pieces.
here are some shots of the car :

Not sure that i updated, i had an issue with when i tried to start the car the starter would click and not engage. battery checked out good, starter checked out good. ended up replacing my ignition switch. running two keys now. only problem to address right now is the afr gauge error 8. innovate seems to think that there is a voltage drop at the positive source. i think its their sensor. i will update with what i find.

Update: innovate sent me an new sensor for my afr kit. it worked for about a month or so and then continued to Error out. with the E8 code. ill contact them in the future but i have more bad news....
December 23 , 2018 : I was on an interstate with not much traffic around so i wanted to see how fast the car could go. at about 6k rpms in 6th gear i felt a weird give and so i let off the throttle...too late
cylinder 4 now has a crack.

The car will sit for at most 9 months. Im going to part out whats salvageable in terms of parts i wont need for the next transition to this car.
