Gotta make sure the alignment is right. right now I'm riding on about 60% of my front tires. With as hard as these tires are, I cant have that.

Well, after many trips to the store, and about 6 hours, seats are re-colored and installed, and the Y8 manifold is been ground on and installed, and i fixed the VC gasket leak.


After:






Oil change in the morning and I should have the camber kits on tomorrow night. Steering wheel hub will be in Friday.

Not really. If you're looking to replace an a6, the zc is likely what you will find equivalen t.
The EX sedan wasn't carbed, but you can spot the jdm head/cam by the fuel pump lobe and hole in the head.

Paintball has things moving slow, but you know what they say Kanye, slow motion better than no motion.

My Dad had a beat ass Dodge Dart in college and he called it "The Rolls". I bought this, thought of that, but then I decided to actually make it into a halfway nice car. paint and wheels should be done by the end of the month.

They are godspeed, I bought them on ebay for $60 or so, I'd heard good things about the brand before so I went with them. They ride fine. no complaint s here. no more camber issues so i'm happy.

In my efforts to have it looking right before I.A. I've started sanding. I hate sanding. Both the fenders have pretty good dings in them so i'll be swapping the perfect ones from the Dookie. Gonna do my wire tuck at the same time so I only have to pull the fenders once.




Got bored at work and decided to polish the center garnish from where I had removed the civic sticker. I'm gonna need to get on the tail lights real soon....



In bigger news, I picked up a set of skunk 2 Pro S coilovers .


Got the fronts on but the rear shock-to-lca bolt is seized to the bushing so I'll have to cut the bolt/bushing to get them off. with new pretty LCA's with new bushings being $55, I'm just going to order those.

Should be picking up rims on Tuesday. stoked for that.
