It's official: I live in this car now. The amount of time I have spent with this car probably means I am in a common-law relationship with it. But the patch work is winding down. A few more spots here, then a quick visit to the engine bay will follow.

Today, we repair the factory tow hook, some sill damage, repair a spot where our subframe mounts, and even remove some unnecessary brackets in the engine bay.

Lots more pics regarding the work, so hit that gallery!
