    Heres a dumb question, can I use regular 10W30 oil, or do I have to use the Turf Gard? I might be able to work on it again in probably the next few days, not sure if the coil came today, i'll have to find out.

    This looks like a pretty ambitious project. I look forward to seeing updates.
    From now on I will only buy cars that are a silver/grey color. Then I can make all body repairs with Duct Tape.
