Didn't even think of kolak for those. Damn. It's too late, kor ones will be here tomm

I ordered them at a local parts store. Offbrand, can't remember the name right now.

Plus sometimes it's really hard to find a seller that will ship to EU (I'm from Slovenia). I generally search ebay (mostly german) and amazon, but like I said... shipping is a *****. I'll propably wait 'till I need enough things to fill 1/2 of a container, then maybe it'll be cost efficient

Today I did a quick & dirty paint job to conceal a big, nasty, rusted, down to the sheet metal scar.

Certainly not "fixed", but it looks a whole lot better for the time being until I figure out what I want to do with it.

Also... A couple pics from yesterday's $2.69 Radio Shack Aux-IN install...

Richmond huh? I'm from winchester I'm surprised its been that mild this year everywhere. On that note it stopped snowing. Ended up with about just shy of a light dusting....horrible.
