Hey I can cut holes in glass but my brother has done it already - takes lots of water and a diamond bit. What I really could use is the suspension mount for the right swing arm . . . no wait that rotted out on yours too WAAAAAA! My gas shocks are at a point where they hold up the hatch if it is warm out - cold they come back down unless you wait a minute then it stays up - tricky devil sometimes decides to close a minute later and WHAM on the head.
hummm came throught the floor did it . . . yeah the undercoat is not too thick in many places.
On a side note since I did not see a recent post with this topic . . . took a trip last night to Stamford CT and back to attend a meet. I got 40.1 mpg going down 41.3 coming back - just about all highway with some rain - really heavy at times. The xB handles pretty good in the highway but oddly it seems to turn into the side wind. It really feels weird driving on these roads now sitting up so high after so many years in a lower car on the same roads.
If you think a Geo Metro is low to the ground, you've never driven a Triumph GT6 or ridden in a Lotus Europa. Your head is right at the height of the bumpers of all those oversized trucks and SUVs on the road. It's comforting to know you can nail the accelerator to the floor if the need arises, and wake the dead with the engine roar while you're at it. People may not see you, but they'll certainly hear you.
