      Thanx all for the great comments.

      My car has been in the shop for a while now. But my oil was changed b4 I brought it in. Anyone think i should change oil again?
      Also what should i do about the fuel. I was thinking of adding half bottle of seafoam.
      Good enough?

      Ill post some pics of some new things painted later tonight.
