So for some reason the bulbs I bought were already sticking out straight from the bulb instead of the 90 degree swing that the stock bulbs had, which is why I didn't remember any issue.

Yep, those are the XS prefix bulbs. The mid to late 2000's Chargers use them.

So the Beretta is still fighting to start, but it's still starting, it just doesn't necessarily act like it wants to. It's acted like this ever since I put on the new FPR. The one I bought was a '94 3100 FPR. This morning I bought an '04 3400 FPR, they run 55 PSI instead of the 44 PSI that the 3100 regulator does, I figure it may mesh better with my L67 injectors. I believe the regulator I replaced was the one off of my old 3400, so giving this a shot.

Not related to anything I'm working on, but this picture is a pain in the butt to find on here, so I'm posting the picture I have saved!

The firewall leak locations! Yes I stole the picture, but that was a long time ago!

I like the Hash Stripes.
Something I have been thinking about long and hard for my California GTZ, but only on the Left side.
I do have an issue with the outcome however.
Attached are the actual GM Corvette specs FYI.
With all due respect, yours are too far forward, the angle is wrong and they should be trimmed at the fender flare.
The actual measurements won't help you much. but they are close, and the hub center line matters and will be relative.
But what a great car!!! :beer:
Be Well.

It's fine, the paint is far from perfect, and if the car gets repainted in the future I'll have it done properly and professionally lol. These are leftover vinyl scraps from over ten years ago too!

I'm in the process of collecting parts to do the rear disc swap since I'm replacing the bad rear axle, but this picture is down, if that could be fixed?

BTW if you don't have the correct Bowtie for that grill, I have one you can have.
Black with a red outline. California Mint.
Would be perfect with the stripes.
Let me know if you need it.
Cheers.
