Thanks guys. I logged back in and posted a few pics in the Showroom. One thing thats been bugging me since I bought this car is how warm it gets in stop and go. I see it is a factory thermostat, but I just get nervous sitting in traffic when my temp is 210 degrees. Old school, I guess. I'll be putting in a 180 thermostat this Summer...

That is completely normal. The fans turn on around that temperature to bring the temperature down. if you run the A/C, the fans will run all the time and it will stay cooler. Not sure if the 180 stat will change that. If you can alter the fan turn on temperature, that would be a better solution.
