wow, that's a really nice car, why is it called a smurf? Is it because it's blue like a smurf? but it would need a white HT resembling their white hats.

P.s. you forgot to add your lug nuts to your "mod" list

Thanks man. I honestly don't even know what's next on the list. I was basically replacing stuff, and if I could swing it, I'd upgrade it.
I have to do upper control arms and a few other bushings like endlinks and whatnot. But hopefully the maintenance will be done for the time being.

Might be focusing on bracing next, but I honestly don't know if I should be spending the money and or if it'll be worth it. Aside from that, I may wrap the car, because I've got crazy dents, dings and paint issues. Maybe even rust :(

So this is a late update, but with the help of Cuban Tony we got the master cylinder and the slave cylinder done for the clutch, did the stainless steel line.

In addition to that, had to replace the alternator, I had to change out the negative battery terminal wire because it snapped in the trunk and I just finished up cleaning up the car a bit.

Now I have a terrible timing tick, thinking about doing a tuck for the engine bay and have to check the tail lights because they're letting water into the trunk.

Aside from that, going to finish up the foot well lighting sometime soon and that seems to be about it.

I have to replace the rotors and brakes again because the rotors I have are already scored pretty badly and have a lip. The pads are alright, but they're hawk blues so they're noisy as **** and leave a lot of dust everywhere.
