Heilite Meets Variant!

Post by MeyerII » Sat May 30, 2009 6:08 pm

For the first Time!

Trip report: with 120 pounds of sand in the frunk and 580 pounds of trailer on the back, "peppy" is not a word that comes to mind. But I was able to struggle up all the hills I needed to, albeit slowly. Only thing that bothered me was on a very long downhill, the brakes went to mush pretty quickly - I don't know how much of this was subjective, but I didn't feel like I had a hell of alot of stopping power after they heated up.

I got the lights working too: tested with my other car. Unfortunately, the RR turn signal seems to be not working on the T3 - will hopefully look at that this weekend.

But this is exactly the look that I was going for:

That looks so cool. What a beautiful car (and trailer)! It's rare to see one that looks so nice. The wheels and the rack just really set it off.
