Well, my bug eye is leaking oil like crazy, and the timing belt is way overdue. Typhoon quoted almost 2k in costs, and I'm not going to be here long enough for that to be justifiable, so I think it's time to sell for dirt cheap.

Forget that. I'll be getting the money from my insurance case soon, so I'll have the funds. I'd like to do the timing belt myself however. I'm probably going to get this kit: Has anyone done a timing belt change before? I'd pay in beer/food if you helped.

I figure for the gasket problem, I would take it to a shop for that, as I have no idea where to start or what to replace or anything. Anyone else have any ideas?

Once both of those are done, all that's left is replacing the hood and bumper (no carbon fiber). I figure I'll look around on island, upgarage, or Yahoo Auctions if it comes to it.

So by the time I get all this done, I just have to wait until February, then sell her.
