This wagon has passed cert end of last year and is currently road legal, been keeping it local for now but so far hasn't caused any troubles so will slowly increase the radius from home it travels.Its quite good to drive but a bit bouncy, I haven't had a lowered car for a while.

Got the heater hooked up for queens birthday cruise. Found Gates 01-0004 to be a good fit. Been trying to get the temp gauge to work porperly, seems to stay low unless in town so tried to shorten the adapter I had made for the sensor

Had thought it may be out too far, it didn't seem to make much difference. Next thought was being on top of the thermostat housing might be the problem but would need to drill and tap into another location in the block, which I didn't have the correct tap for, so left it for now. Taking a long trip first thing in the morning revealed that the engine is definitely running way too cold, so hopefully it's just a new thermostat needed, so that's next in the list.

Oh yeah, decided since the bonnet is actually red originally it would suit a japanese flag type of thing but didn't want to go all in seeing as it would be like putting a confederate flag on an American car. Anyway my daughter helped me make this up, painted the bobomb and then masked and used thinners to take the white paint off the top to reveal the red
