Went with the better quality parts, going ahead and replacing everything rather than trying to cheat. The original fairly cheap repair just got another $901.62 tossed into the pit. Should last me a good long while though at least.
Headrests are installed, but I must reinstall the seats now.
Other work to be done:
- Repair loose alternator.
- Change/check fluids/filters.
- Reinstall seats.
- Tighten shifter.
- Check/replace glow plugs.
- Window Tint Remove (Replace?)
