Probably close to 1500 miles total. Did a lot of driving.

Been an interesting winter for me so didn't get a whole lot done to the car. Moved into a new house so I'm a little short on time and money but I still got a few things done. I now have a garage to keep the car in and work on it so I may actually be able to get things done once I get the money saved up. In the mean time, I have pictures of the two main things I got done. The first is I finally got around to installing the seats I picked up a while ago. They came out of a Hyundai Tiburon and I made brackets from aluminum blocks to mount them to the original seat mounts. The seats are black so I put on seat covers so they at least match a little better with the white interior. Second, I got new wheels and tires. The wheels are 17x8 and the tires are 215/45/17 all the way around. The wheels had -40mm offset and I used 1.25" spacers to get them just right. I wanted the front of the car not to be higher than the rear so I cut 1.5 coils off the front springs. I will lower it more later on but it works for now.

Here's a most recent picture of my car. I have cut another coil from each spring front and rear so sit where it is now. Yes eventually I will be doing something else but what I want to do is not in the budget at the moment. I will be tearing down the engine over the winter and doing a full build. Should have some real progress within the next few months finally.
