"I just spent 3 hours getting the dashboard apart for this friggin thing, and I'm not wasting another minute getting this BS job done"Agghhh...what are these people thinking.
Now my NO (next owner) will say this:It is a previous owner's obligation to do dumb things like hold things together with sheetrock screws, and insulate wires with masking tape.
Believe me, when our cars pass on to their next owners, they too will scratch their heads over some of the things that we have done. It's all part of the game.
Nah,Now my NO (next owner) will say this:
When he first got the car, he quickly made copies of the original keys. Even went to the trouble of finding an orginal Afla blank for the ignition key for the copy. He found an orginal owners manual to replace the lost one ($60, ouch), even sprung for a CarDisc before starting any projects. Wow when he replaced the carpet and upholstery he put back every screw, bolt, washer, nut, etc. just where it came from. He also has the orginal steering wheel and shifter knob for me in case I want to put them back in place of the cool Nardi wood ones he installed. He bead blasted and powder coated the Campy rims. Also added an oil pan guard. When he repainted the car, he painstakingly removed all the chrome, etc. so as to not have any overspray show. He even replaced the outer door handles with new ones that weren't pitted all to hell. He also replaced the outside square mirrors with the old school Vitaloni chrome ones, but he kept the original mirrors and repainted the backs of them as well and hung on to them in case I wanted to put them back on. Lastly, he replaced many missing little parts like the hood light, cover for the screw on the convertible top handle, original speaker covers, etc. by perusing ebay and this board constantly. Oh and finally, he left me with every receipt for everything he bought and did to maintain it.
I can tell you this, the thing he won't say is that I was a hack!
You forgot the part about the carbon fiber.Nah,
He'll run over to Pep Boys buy some nice hub caps, replace those stupid mirrors, add some neon to the back, strategically place some stickers and if he has any money left over buy a nice big fart can to make it sound cool.
Sure there is, they're just on the back side of the fusebox proper.(no extra switched terminals on the fusebox)
