It's been a while since I've given an update on the Z. Not too much to update about, since the economy is kicking my college-educated ass, but I'm stockpiling little parts here and there.

She's currently nestled in the garage (at least until the windy/rainy season ends; gotta find the rotted rubber that's letting in water), then it's back to being tarped and parked back in the side yard nookButt shot. It also shows the Wink 5-panel rear view mirror that came with the car. Don't know if I want to keep it or not just yet. That rear bumper's gotta go too.
Underhood, the L28E still exists. She fires up consistently; dude I bought it from did a good job replacing hoses and tuning it up, since it wasn't his original intention to sell the car, but keep it. Lucky for me. It'll do the job until replacement time comes.

And for those asking, yes the paint is new. Not original, but quite decent. Luis, the previous owner, sprayed for a living, so he stripped the car to the bare metal and resprayed it. I don't think it'll stay white, but it was a pleasant bonus to get along with the car itself for the price I paid him for it. After the Solara gets its refresh (which is going on as we speak), mod efforts will shift more dramatically to the S30. Until next time...
