I could honestly care less about the wheels. I don't think it's right to have bigger wheels up front than the rear. And I like the the look. If I really did care I would be traded my fronts for 17s.

Added 12 minutes later:

And it would look a bit stupid because the wheels on the rear are wider than the fronts.

Added 3 hours later:

So I plugged in my friends turn signal/headlight switch and the headlights go down! It's because mine is missing the plug on the switch that my friends switch has. You can see the wire on the picture above, mine doesn't have that. But, of course there's a but, the headlight motors go reverse so it hits the core support. We're still trying to figure it out. But anyways, we got the fourth lug nut for my driver side wheel.

And behold, the first zipties we have ever put on the car.

I had to ziptie the turning lights to the bumper reinforcement for when I drive it tomorrow.

So I drove my car for the first time today. No power steering isn't all that bad while moving. I came across my first hill on a stop with someone on my a**, pulled the e-brake and dropped it at the perfect moment and got over it no problem. I was very proud of myself after that. But the car is just so unstable while moving, it's just all over the road. It doesn't help that one wheel is toed out and the other isn't. But, I got home safe and she really needs a bath.


Added 3 hours later:

There's also a really bad clunk while we're driving. And we're thinking that it's something with the rear coilovers.

It looks like the actual name is Silver Moss, but it seems more like a gun metal grey to me. The actual paint code is KG2.

Added 9 hours later:

So I woke I've been up since 4AM and it's now 7AM. And I decided to look into some problems with my car, mostly with the idle issue. I don't know why we didn't think of this earlier but I looked at this picture with the IACV.
You see that plug on the IACV? Yeah, ours is completely busted. We have the plug (I think) and now we have to buy a new one. That's now all I can think about for our idle problems.

We may have found clunk in the back, one of the rear springs weren't set. So we did that and might drive it later to find out. And we also found out why the headlights won't go down, simply the brackets are really tweaked so they hit and don't go down.

My friend gave me a new steering wheel.




Added 19 hours later:

Got all the power steering stuff installed and it's 2 fingers easy. The front springs squeak as we turn the wheels though.

We got the cargo lid in place and works perfectly.

We're going to trade hatches with my friend because he has a good hatch with no holes and as window wiper. And my friend made a deal with his friend that if he uses out garage to change a head gasket on his Corvette, he has to time my car in return.

Added 5 hours later:

So my friend went over my car and found some things. We need a new cap and rotor for the distributor. We need a new cluster, because the rpm gauge bouncing is a cluster related problem. And the sparkplugs are BURNT.


Added 20 hours later:

So today we raised the rear of the car, it is way too high for my taste, but I have to deal with it for now because I don't have coilovers in the front.
