TLC for the p-car

Since last I posted, I got the car back on the road. It was trouble with the DME. New DME in there. And while I had it in, I also had the chain tensioners replaced since the old ones were worn and I didn't want to have to deal with a collapse in the near future.

But the occasion for the post is that the car is finally getting some TLC. All this time, i've always just concentrated on the performance and mechanicals. Well, no more. I got the hood back, freshly painted. got a crest for it as well.

In the interior, I ripped out the old carpets when I took out the rear seat, about a week after I got the car. All in all, I'd gotten quite used to hearing the transmission whine. But that's over. Brand-new RS carpets are going in, as well, as RS door panels.
