Additional FeaturesI added custom springs in August 2009, to bring the rear height back to the original height. This improved the ride significantly.

I painted the car in August also.
Fun conversion. See the webpage for lots of details and pictures. Thanks to Steve and Michael for help and inspiration. Now I want solar panels for the house roof.
