    Kijiji find:

    MINT set of R98 rims and tires (same design as stock wheels that car came with).
    Keeping up with the idea of preserving "CE" look of the car.
    Set came with Continental DWS 205/45/17 almost new all season set. I will use this set for colder months and for storing it over "snowy" period in Toronto as I have no plans of driving this car on salty Ontario roads...


    Some hardware ordered:

    RMW expansion coolant tank,
    OEM coolant tank/power steering tank bracket (to be refinished in red) used from WMW,
    Various aftermarket billet caps (to dress up the under bonnet view),
    Outmotoring rear bumper protection strip (black),
    Outmotoring Tach rear Trim in red.

    Stay tuned for pictures once received and installed.
