Comments:
Bought this ride on October 30th, 2020 as a tinkering project for my son and I and it will probably be his first car. Unfortunately, the transmission rebuild has slowed down my upgrade plans for it. Future goodies include touch-screen stereo w/ rear camera, plate bumpers front & rear, LED bulbs, off-roading lights, Raptor liner paint job & whatever else strikes my fancy along the way.

And yeah, there's a good bit of rust under there. The X started its life in Canada.
