Got my 1994 rear decklid panel back from my friends paintshop. Its now a beautiful tripple gloss black pictures will be up soon.

Are you going for black for the finished car?

Finally got my mechanic to work on my XR2.  New timing belt, water pump, some of the water/heater hoses, thermostat, radiator cap, flushed the brakes, rear axle bearing(both sides), caliper guide bolts and rubber boots.  I wanted to change the transmission fluid, but couldn't get the speedometer drive loose.  I even broke the retainer screw when I went to remove it.  Now I'm soaking it in PB Blaster, am dreading removing the piece of screw from the transmission housing.

I would have threw my hybrid turbo on, but I did not feel like building a downpipe at the moment.

Just installed my new toyo tires proxes 4. Went out to try them, and so far I'm pleased with their performance. They are solid and have good grip. They are just a bit louder than the pirelli's.

Got an alignment, fixed the rear sway bar bushing bracket, and installed a pair of shifter bushings.  Had the front adjusted to toe out with toe in at the rear.  Oddly it still pulls to the right.  Don't like that, other than that, it's like a different car.  Driving and shifting are great.  Sway bar bushings are next.

Picked up a silver top for it in PA.  Then drove a couple of hours down the road and traded it for a red one.  When winter comes, it'll be a white XR2 with a red top.
