      Hi Ron,

      That is kind of you and I will keep your offer in mind as currently I am waiting patiently by the mail box for a cap and rotor that I won on E-bay. If it turns out to be in the condition that it was stated to be and too the appropriate one for my car then all said and done. If not I will source through you.

      Thank you,

      She ran fine before the new ones
      I installed when I did the water
      pump and t-belt. See if they will
      work by going to the sites and seeing
      the OEM part numbers?
