Looking pretty good for 18 years of hard life. Ready for Eurotripper 7. Eventually I will have to address the twisty door panel where a jack slid out from under it.

Yeah but I want the indigo blue, I thought mine was Pacific blue, but I guess that is the lighter color? Still looks silver. Nice, but still looks that way.

Yeah the deep blue looks super nice on these. Is the Pacific blue the special color? What was the super rare blue that was on the W8s?

Indigo is a dark Blue but it looks nice on a wagon:

That it does.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who makes proper use of the long roof during the ol' service position.

Roof and inside. It was crowded with a double engine and trans swap going on:

:eek:
And I thought it was crowded in my garage when I did the double swap on my 1998 GLS. My garage up in WI was spacious compared to that. I don't if I could work in that tight of an area anymore. Nothing worse than moving something out of the way every time you have to take a step. The biggest thing for me was always having a place to escape to in case the engine decided to remove itself from the hoist.

I had to roll the cars back to the lip of the garage floor to move the engines into place. I did replace an oil pump and turbo on the right side while I had my car apart on the left years ago. That was a bit tight, now that I occupy more room, it's harder to work in that space.
