Oh-Two (on the right) is mostly stock and rattle-free, with 225K on the clock. The battery is trunk-mounted, apparently for a long time. The motor appears ... Show morestock except for the E6. The wiring is a little wonky and needs some attention. All the goodies from Oh-One will go on this one, i.e. Konis, stainless brake lines, vacuum hose boost control, and a gauge or two.

Rods and Ash Trays
My box of Crower rods and "hyperpatheic" pistons. I got these through a certain on-line auction site, the seller claimed they were "Crower Rods and (maybe) Wiseco pistons", and included the Wiseco part number. At least the rods appear authentic.

One-piece door panels. I've modified the arm rests, speaker grill, and map pockets so that they are permanently attached to the door panel. Removing the door panel now is a single step. There are now LEDs in the door for additional lighting.
More LEDs. I've added LEDs to the trunk, in the deck lid and under the package tray. It might be hard to tell, but there's a lot more light, more evenly distributed, and at a fraction of the consumption. In these pics, the trunk liner was temporarily removed.

You can see how much the front tires extend beyond the fenders here. The outside of the rim extends about 3" past the fender, 15x7 vs 18x9 ( 2"), longer control arms ( ~.75").
