    Current exchange rate is $1 = R11.59, but R1 - $0.09
    So $2000 = R23175.60
    a paintjob like that would cost about R15'000 = $1295
    So maybe it is not that expensive here...

    What I do wonder about is why tape up the headlights instead of removing them?

    Lol yeah doesn't sound bad at all and I got it for 535 bucks. And it was just easier to tape them rather than removing them and then filling the void as to not get paint on anything in the engine bay, it turned out really nice.

    I noticed my valve cover gasket was leaking so I changed it, the old one was so dry rotted it was like old brittle plastic it just crumbled into pieces when I took it off.

    Or maybe find a 5 speed corolla with a blown motor for cheap and just put your motor into it and have yours for parts or part it out.

    I guess we will see if something comes up,just think the car would be somewhat more fun to drive if it's was manual and I could add some power to it.

    Oh yea didn't say anything but I pulled the trigger on ordering aftermarket mud guards from a company named replacement parts yes that is the actual name. I did it because from there pictures the almost look identical to the oem ones. Hope they do if they don't I will send them back and get most of my money back

    No I was just curious since I'll be pushing more hp and probably be beating on the car a lot more. Every car has their weak point when you start adding hp and dumping the clutch lol

    Mud guards came in and I have to say they look very close to oem ones. Now just got to wait for warm weather to slap them on.
