All right so I'm just going to get right into it. I bought the car in March 2008. Shortly after I quite my job so I haven't really gotten to spend to much money on it. Thankfully I have been re-employed, and now gracefully pumping cash into the Mx! Haha, anyways... on to projects and pics.

Next week I will be putting a fresh coat of primer on, and will be ordering springs from corksport to lower it down a notch. Also expecting a wrap around spoiler in the mail.

Ok so its been a while. I have been super busy with going to college full time and workin part time; however I did make some progress. Thankfully we had three days of warm fall weather before it started to get rainy and cold again. So I attached my wrap around spoiler and primed my car out in the driveway with the help of a buddy. Still have not gotten the springs so that will be pushed back untill next summer. PICTURE!!

Quick question for someone to answer. I commute back and forth from school everyday utilizing the highway. I noticed that my hood seems to bouncing almost like it not latched even though it is. I'm worried that my latch will give and my hood will cause expensive outcomes. Is there a good way to secure it? Such as using a safety chain? I thought of buying hood pins but I have seen and heard that their not always reliable.

My hood did this. It is caused by the wearing of the rubber stoppers, located along the top of the fender, and all round the front, and some right by the hinges. My fix was loosen the hood latch, lower it a quarter inch, and tighten it up again. Hood was pushed agaisnt the stoppers, and flexed less.
