Looks good so far, but why on earth did you paint the bumpers/skirts? Looked much better in body color.

cuz i had to replace the rear bumper when it had a huge hole in it when i got the car, and the only one i found was black, so i painted the side skirts and front to match a lil... dont worry, itll b gettin a nice good paint job once i turbo it, and after i put new suspension on it.. really dark black with metal flake. :)

Quaker state isnt that bad. It all depends on how you drive the car. I use either Mobile 1 or Royal Purple.

I would also return those autolite plugs for something better. Better just to spend the money on NGK or Nippon Denso plugs. Japanese engines dont really like anything but japanese spark plugs. I recently had to deal with a honda civic that had a random misfire and ran like crap, swapped the brand new autolites in it for brand new OE style NGK plugs and it runs perfect now. When i used to work at a toyota dealer, there were always cars coming in with check engines light for 2 reasons---1 the owner decided to buy new plugs for it, either autolite or bosch, and the only fix is to go get OE style replacements or 2- the owner did not get the gas cap tight causing the EVAP system to set a MIL light. Save the autolites for the domestic boat anchors.
