Today I picked up hub adapters for my wheels and a new driver's side window. The
one in the replacement door was scratched to hell and bothered me every time I looked
at it. Now I've got a brand spankin' new one and installed it myself. Just one more
piece in the puzzle to be finished in April.
As a bonus, I found out my insurance will be under $400/mo when I put collision
back on it!

It's been a few weeks now since I've had the tires for my new wheels but I just
now got pics of them. Here they are, all ready to be put on the car. The tires are
Toyo Proxes FZ4's in 225/40/ZR18. They're W rated so that should be good enough.
:) The next j-body dinner meet to be held in Scarborough will be on April 11th and
I'm trying my best to have the WM3 there. Also, I just found out that I should have
my new MOMO shift knob sometime this week. I know it doesn't seem like a big deal
but I've had it on order since October 31st!

Just thought I'd mention that there's a picture of the back of my head in the January
2002 issue of Sport Compact Car. It's on page 88 right near the fold in the middle.
And that's my chair I'm sitting on.

Here's a quick Photoshop idea of what the WM3 is going to look like with the new
wheels on it.

This past weekend was the J-Body Club Ontario Annual Bash and the WM3 did quite
well. With a lot of effort and a lot of help from Michelle, we took home 3 trophies.
All in the 3rd Generation category I won for Best of Class: Stock Class, Best Stock
Paint and Best Stock Engine.

Today Michelle and I gave the WM3 a proper waxing in preparation for the show in
two weeks. I also installed the new billet door sills. Here's some pics of the results.
Hopefully these can reclaim the unofficial title of the shiniest car on j-body.org
for the WM3.
March 26th, 2001: For the past 3 days, the WM3 has been on display at the
MacLaren Momentum General Motors Parade of Vehicles in Markham, Ontario. She was
looking her best ever and is sporting the new clear turn signals and light covers
as well as completely replaced bulbs on the front end. On the drive home last night,
I got the confirmation from Nigma that the PIAA's are indeed much brighter than
the stock lamps so my money wasn't wasted. :) Here's some pics from the show. The
lady in pink is the president and general manager of GM Canada, Maureen Kempston
Darkes. Overall, the show was an interesting experience and at the end of it all,
I got to drive the new Z24 sedan, the Corvette Z06, the Cadillac DeVille with night
vision and a few other vehicles. Definitely a worthwhile experience. :)
