4) bumper cover charging port complete (mounted but not live yet)

I'll stop at that to get a few further repairs done:

1) Straighten radiator fins
2) Damned driver window crank (again!)
3) Sea foam the intake manifold & fuel system
Well, I got #1 and #2 done on the first list and tried to fix #2 on the second list, but I leave for El Mirage by or before dawn and this is all I got completely done, all pics, no description (in a hurry):

Remake side skirt (rocker):

Rocker skirts installed (plastidipped):

Making new type wheel well skirt mount clip (1)




The new look, with wheel well skirts and rocker skirts on:

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
