Was there more work on your car than you anticipated? Did you find a bucket of wiring worms, find some secret hidden problems…..
This car had wires and chords everywhere inside lol. So sorting everything out wasn’t exactly the easiest.

Would you consider your car done in its current form? Or do you have a list of “to dos” still left?
Well it’s current form is actually in pieces in my garage so I definitely wouldn’t consider it done in it’s current form. Prefer to leave those “to dos” a secret for now.🤘

Is there any part/mod on your car you had to do a few times, or installed and then removed?
I have changed my trunk setup a couple times now until I was finally happy with it.

What is your favorite part on your car?
Trunk setup has to be for now. Me and one of my best friends have a lot of hours and memories building it.
