Hang in there! You're doing a good thing saving a manual. That poor car was on its way to complete oblivion judging by the down-and-out used car dealer lot she in ended up at, but just like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, you have been the knight in shining armor to rescued the car. Hopefully it will rescue you back somedayJust reviving this thread from the depths of the forum! Believe it or not, the car is still in the shop! I have no idea how long it's been, but I do know it's been well over a year! We are hopefully on the home stretch (I've said it before and I won't dare put a timeline again). I cannot even believe how large of a project this has been. Everything is currently being installed back on the car (again) and all parts are in-house, so I can say we are really close this time. Guys, prepare to be blown away... I think... It's kind of sad because the car is going to look pretty much the same when it comes to the aesthetics (other than the new wheels), but all of the internals are basically brand, spanking new!
