He's talking about the yellow coolant overflow cap and the engine oil dipstick handle that's also yellow. They look much better black. Here's a black roof on an SY for your reference, not really my cup of tea but if you like it....

So its been a while since i last updated this log. mostly cause it was locked as i had it locked. anyways, Nothing much new with the car. Went trough winter mode then back to summer mode about a month ago. Had a little trouble with 1 coilover not wanting to move back down again but i finally got it to move. Recently 1 of my friends got a black srt4 and he hated the Mopar tails it came with so i traded him for my tinted ones. i Love the Mopar tails on there more than my tinted ones. :-). oh & i took my intake tube off and put the filter rite off the TB and it feels better overall & now i dont have to worry about wheel to intake tube rubbing issues and no worries on possible water inside engine issues trough intake.

Then most of you knew i had a turbo setup and was planning to build the engine but the winter blues got to me and i sold all the parts. This time around i think its safe to say i plan to buy a srt4 donor car and do a srt swap cause ive been looking at some salvaged websites and have found some that im interested in already.

3rd, i decided to buy a bike. Yes its my first bike. i didnt get it for performance things like most say its slow but its fast enough for me. i already did things to it like change out plastics and exhaust and oil, plugs and other little things. she looks brand new compared to when i got her a month ago. ill post pics of it on here too. its a 98 suzuki Katana 600 with 8k miles wich now looks like a 03 style cause of the newer style tail setup.

4th, i decided to do some weight reduction... No not on the car but on the driver. lullz. i decided it was time to get in shape so ive lost 35lbs and am currently weighing in at 200llbs 5ft 10" me. Got about another 15lbs before i reach my second goal but id say im feeling better than ever these days and looking better than ever.

well on to some pics and oh & yeah most of you might ask me " you mentioned a swap but you have your car for sale" what gives..? well just because i have it for sale doesnt mean i have to sell it, it was mostly a testing waters thing and no one has shown interest in it anyways.

While working on it & putting wheels back on

Done but i did readjust front to be lower, not shown in pic

After a nice wash

Cleaned up the engine bay some more by taking off the intake and just putting the filter rite off the throttle body
