I'm giving you a 9 rating for your accomplishment, ambition, and sheer bravery for turning a non-runner into a daily driver so fast ... great job Jay!

Thanks Marco! Yeah she's been a lot of fun and I'm proud to say that she served me well driving ~200miles a week this past semester with no issues! Now it just needs paint hahaha.

Good job getting it going into a reliable car. My first car was a B in college and I drove it like I stole it, so every now and again it was down for maintenance.

Great job, she looks good. Don't you wish we could take the front plates off?
