      I love your comment "the wheels fit so the car might not be for everyone" :laugh:

      This car is the finest example of OEM+++ IMO, the seats especially. If staying married weren't a priority, I'd...

      It looks like that car we all see for sale every once in a while, except they rattle-canned it and put better fitting (not great fitting) wheels.

      Also fill the tube with oil so when you insert the cartridge, the oil overflows.

      I read somewhere it may have a coolong effect, but I just do it so I can get the new cartridge out when it's old.

      I don't have the measurements you need, but I admit I'm just curious as to why you cut the tunnel at all :confused:.

      Well, sometimes I'm not good at finding a mystery when there appears to be none, so here goes:
