Yeah, it would probably be a good idea to order a new line.

I've replaced the rear springs by news ones, and also remplacer the relay from the cruise control. I will test it tomorrow.

Finally did the subframe bushings today, it was way less of a pain than expected ! I was postponing this job for 8 months now :mrgreen:
Took me 4h 1/2, I drilled the hard plastic casing and they got out pretty easily

The whole front of the car finally feels tight, might swap out the polybush on the upper mount (firewall side) tho

Drilled out the plastic? Don't suppose you have a reference for that method? I feel like mine need to be sorted out, though Im tempted to get polybush inserts and go the lazy route!

Pulled my first engine with a friend thanks to a borrowed picker from Abscate. Replacing the clutch and flywheel among a couple other things.

I started my window tinting on the C70. I purchased some LEXEN window tint online, it was a complete kit for 5 windows plus the front windshield strip. I am not a window tint installer by any means so I hope it turns out well.
Tell me what you guys think so far.
On a side note, before starting the tint install I noticd vertical scratches from the window being rolled up and down over the years so I decided to use my FLEX 3" rotary polisher with a combination of Meguiars M105 mixed together with Orange hand cleaner in combination with the orange firmer buffing pad,it works amazing for removing scratches in glass,then I finish it off with RUPES Extra fine polishing compound with a green buffing pad. The passenger side turned out nice I think,i'm doing the scratch removal on the front windshield now so I can install the top tint strip. The plastic is a must unless you enjoy scrubbing for hours removing splatter from the buffer.

I can't really see the glass polishing results, but your interior looks fantastic. How did you come up with the polishing mixture?
