It looks really nice Ovi. I love what you did with the side vents. Nice colour. The word you are looking for is "Wheel Bearing." I am hoping to finish mine by the end of July.

I actually have a car tag from Romania a lady friend gave to me
who was a missionary there in Tigor Moresh (sp?). I treasure it,
and will soon put it on the Spider, but ran it for a long time on the '86 X.

She moved to Brasov after TM, but left about two years ago. Her first trip over there she sold the car and just took the tags off and moved back to the states. I saw it in her room when she moved back with her parents, freaked out over a "Euro" tag, and she gave it to me. She said that tags in RO stay with the car for the life of the car, she didn't know it at the time she sold the car, otherwise she wasn't supposed to even have it. She was also quick to point out that, like most things in RO, you can pay to have things..."taken care of." Maybe that's just her experience being a foreigner.

But I definitely want to discuss getting another Euro tag....I'll drop you a PM at some point, can't do it right now, but in a few months. Thanks for the offer!

It would be great if you made a SIDE by SIDE comparison, like the BEFORE rearend shot, and the AFTER rearend shot, the BEFORE frontend shot, and the AFTER... etc. etc.

You are truly an inspiration to us all... thanks for the videos also!

..on the "looks ugly" comment you made. I think she's looking sharp as hell!
She's coming along very nicely. Had to be a great drive getting her on the road again.

Congrats!

It is a great job to be done in Romania, where parts and services are scares.
I takes a strong will and skill to get that car on the road.
I appreciate your efforts and success.
