      From a thread of the same name from the Corrado forum.

      I just debadged (except for the rings) and installed new parking light LED replacements.

      Next up, new (to me) wheels, a chip and new plugs.

      put washer fluid in it.

      Figured out how bad it was going to be to get that mess out of my way to do plugs. (do you need any special tools to pull the coils?)

      Figured out where I can put my Fuel Pressure Gauge from ECS-Tuning... Not alot of space.

      Last weekend change the transmission fluid, haldex fluid & filter, and removed the headlight reflector. Today she took a bath.

      They were just a replacement for the stock H6W bulbs. I got them from aceparts.com in England.

      They seem to work just fine and were cheaper than the H6W bulbs I could find.

      Also - 2 weeks ago: Changed Haldex filter and fluid but had a heckuva time getting the fluid in there...it kept wanting to shoot right back out the drain hole.

      I also changed my oil (AMSOIL baby).

      How did that go? I had an issue of it squirting back out at me while trying to fill. Are you supposed to leave the inspection plug out while filling to give the air somewhere to go?

      Thursday stripped all the unecessary parts off, put in my race brake pads and loaded her up. Friday - ran it on the track all day. Had a guy in an E46 M3 ask me why it was so fast (running 100 octane and pulling on him on the straights) Saturday had to replace the hardwire cord on my Passport 8500 which for some reason took a dump right before driving home from the track friday night and unpacked my oil cooler and remote oil filter kit. Sunday, put all the necessary parts back in, swapped my race pads out and street pads in, test fit the oil cooler (looks like it's gonna fit) and gave it a thorough washing. Today - order new Nitto NT-01's for the track as my Hankooks finally showed their cords to me on the last run on Friday.
