Finally getting a little progress made on my car. Just installed an Autometer DPIC (digital performance information center.) It tells 1/4 mile times, 0-60, 60-0, lateral g's, & h.p. Haven't got to use it much yet, but once I get some number's I'll be sure to post them. Also just put in the Eibach Pro-Damper struts to go with the Pro-Kit springs I had installed a while ago. Just got it aligned and new tires, should handle better now. If it would stop snowing I would wash and wax it and post some pictures. Also corrected the antenna adapter for the radio, the original installer didn't put the amplified antenna adapter in so I never could listen to the radio. It was never really an issue 'cause I only listened to CD's. But I just got an MP3 player, so I had to add an adapter so I could listen to that in the car as well. I'm liking that!! 8 GB means about 1500 cd quality songs, that's roughly 100 hours of music!! Also added a 3 farad capacitor to help the amp and alternator. It was a little overkill, but if I ever upgrade it'll handle it. Makes a little more boom in the trunk.

I'll keep everyone posted on my progress, if there happens to be any more. I'm 'bout ready to start riding the bike, and I need to uncover the boat and start getting that ready for summer, so the car might get put on hold again.

Thanks for checking it out!!!
