Pics of the LED lights I scored off Craigslist....
1st is just running lights
2nd is normal street lighting
3rd is running lights
4th is lows
5th is highs
Lighting is absolutely stupid bright

If Your on the fence about it the difference is "night and day"

I'm definitely sold on LEDs. I like your running light setup.

Installing it was fun.

most of the ugly shit cut out, this was probably the worst spot. drilling and chiseling out the out tacks kinda sucked, and I kinda messed up the old metal in the arch/corner so I decided to cut that out and replace.



ugly. looked way worse before i really started getting into it. simply looking at this part of the car almost made me give up a few times... but sitting and looking and it while repeatedly swearing and sighing wasn't gonna fix it


so i measured, cut out absolutely all the rust and then measured the clean edges around the jack point that i cut. then I sketched this design out and fabbed it from sq. steel tubing. The OEM support doesnt even connect to the frame, just plug welded to the floor. So hopefully this will be super solid!


all cleaned up, and primed with weld thru primer. I sealed everything except the parts I was gonna tack the floor to with rubberized undercoating stuff.


and the new pan, all seam welded and ready to go.


don't have pics but the whole dash area, firewall, and floors have been dynamat'd now.

**whops, logged in for the first time in 2 years and posted that by accident, sorry.
if someone can delete (this) post please, that'd be good.

...on this note, does anyone know what happened to the '89 white small bumper (w/ front G60 flares on all 4's), that had a built 16v on ITBs??

real curious, hence the logging in for 1st time in forever

I got it off Ebay from Carcovers.com.
It's just a generic one for indoor use, but it fits pretty good.
I don't have any pictures of it on the car.

What model did you spring for? Also looking for one.


MK1s had optional heated seats?? were they as fire prone?
