Thanks Peter. I'm glad I have a G1 again! I already missed my silver G1 before I had even signed the title over to sell it!


Last night I finally got to look under the car to inspect its condition, which turned out to be incredibly good. Rear engine mount hasn't aged at all, no rust to be seen anywhere, even the catalytic converter heat shield and bolts and stuff looked clean.

But I did get to put in some work on the top-side of the engine bay...

Before:



After:



Most of this was done with wet rags, maybe 5% of the surface was hit with isopropyl alcohol. I missed some spots, I'll touch them up later.
