Man I love those damn things.... I don't ever have to worry about any type of braking, panic or otherwise. I'm really glad that I went with them.

So glad in fact, that I'm probably going to wait until next summer before I put on the GT4 brakes.

you got SS brake hoses too? Those feel great, really help brake modulation when you're playing around.

No. I'm going to wait until I've got the ST205 brakes all the way around the car. That way, when I put them on, I'll throw on the new lines too.

So I decided to be spontaneous and pick up a set of wheels so that I could show something off at the next meet.



They're sick right? Well, they won't be on the car.... turns out, the guy swore up and down that they were 5x100/114.3 but they're definitely 5x114.3/120

So now I'm trying to get rid of these things just so that I can get my money back....

After I failed hard at putting those rims on, I checked my oil and added 1/2 quart. I filled up this afternoon and checked it again.... It didn't read on the stick frown.gif

Needless to say that i just got back in from the garage.... I replaced the dizzy O-ring b/c I could see it dripping off the distributor after I shut the car off and opened the hood. While trying to pull the old o-ring off, it broke in half (as soon as I got the screwdriver under it) and the new one went on without incident. I'm going to see driving on it for a day to see if my level stays the same, otherwise I've got a new VC gasket kit with plug rings.

I guess we'll see right?

Oh, also, If you know someone in the market for wheels they are

XXR 522 Gold
18x8.5 +30
5x114.3/ 5x120

The tires are BRAND NEW Federal ss595 215/40-18

and I'm asking the $1000 I paid for them.

Let me emphasize that everything in the package is BRAND NEW. They even have TPMS sensors. smile.gif

reading is overrated haha. Sorry to hear they're no good man. And I know what a pain oil loss is, hopefully the new gasket helps

Not only did I find pics of this weekend's engine pull, but I also found the pics from June when I had to pull the motor to replace the clutch

AND

I found the pics from the last meet that Stacy never uploaded....

But here's the pics from this weekend smile.gif


When I got there, I had a broken crash bar


And a busted condenser


New Crash bar!!!




We decided that I would be a good time to take the carpet out so that we could put it in the sun to dry smile.gif


Its not very often the front of the car gets to look at the back...


This timing belt only has 46,xxx miles on it.... Anyone see a problem?



Thank god I ordered a new rear engine mount kindasad.gif



Draining the rest of the gear oil...


Dirty engine bay?


Clean it up with Orbitz!... ermm... Stacy and Brigette lol






Getting the interior back together...


Thanks Daniel! I LOVE these seats....



500 miles later. (Yes, I drove it 500 miles in two days)





I think we fixed it. Funny enough, we didn't even think about a difference in the seat belt from a '94 to a '96, so we ended up driving home sitting on the buckles to make it look like we were buckled in.... Stacy and I fixed it last night, because it was too weird driving around with no restraints kindasad.gif

All in all, It was a fun weekend thanks to Daniel's hospitality and generosity.

Although, I do still have to wash all the black fingerprints off her....

1.) My engine bay is still filthy. She still won't clean it for me, Chris.

2.) I'm making that picture of you and Stacy my sig just because I actually got a picture of Stacy doing work.

3.) I'm glad you got the seatbelt latches transferred over! Who knew that they were different?

4.) I'm glad the 5S is working out for you. I can't wait to put a second motor in your car though...

5.) ??????

6.) Profit!
