I agree this Maratona will be a looker and a performer, when you're done with it.

Thats quite the journey for wheel seals. I got my seals from Centerline, they were the right ones, made in Italy, fit first try. Glad you finally got it sorted. On to the next!

I looked at Centerline's website a couple of times during this journey, didn't see them listed. I should have called.

Working in driver's side suspension. Basically a "wash, rinse, repeat" of the passenger's side. UCA bolt was a bit stuck but was "persuaded" to slide out. Everything is soaking in cleaner, paint tonight.

Fiddling with headlights for the non-stock portion of this car's life. I ordered a couple of these with the integral turn signal.

We're going to find out...

They have to be better than the 4 mismatched lights that were on the car, two of which had the lenses fall off.

The front rotors were below minimum spec by 1.5 mm. New ones ordered from Centerline.

I'd like to think I've got everything needed to get through smog and brake and light...but, we'll find out.
