so a little Good Friday DIY...

the tint was bothering me. i personally am quite a transparent person and would like my cars to be too. couldn't see diddly-squat when reversing at night, so i was biding time to get rid of it. here's the before:

got down to it with a knife and peeled it off. good lord the sound it makes!

quite happy with the looks of it now:

also, i was never a fan of petc0, at least not enough to have a sticker extolling their virtues on my rear windscreen. so that went too. replaced it with something much more sensible.

Good job! I didn't like the tints very much. They never look good on classics.

And it seems like the coilovers are at their lowest setting.

Where can I get that sticker? I'm never a fan of tints myself so it looks heaps better now. Did it peel right off? What about adhesive residue?

Smoked lights are on their way out. Will be getting new lenses off eBay in time.

And yes, I am married. Let me explain to you how this works. If you've red "Tom Sawyer" by mark twain, you would understand the analogy. It's what I call the Tom Sawyer effect. In the book, Tom, who's an orphan and lives with his granny, was asked to paint the fence around the house before he could go play. Tom, being the kupadiya, started painting at around the time his friends would go out to play. So one by one as his friends passed, Tom made it look like he was having a ball of a time painting the fence. First one to stop was his best friend Huckleberry Finn. Huck was fascinated, and asked to let him also paint the wall. Tom said no, it's risky business. But this made huck want it more. So Tom let him, and charged him money also. One by one the other friends came, and eventually painted the whole fence for Tom after paying him.

So, in summary, let me clarify. The Datsun 510 belongs to her. It was an anniversary present. ;)
