    Rawspeed's shop car in need of some love. But the love is on the books! Custom headers, Ti exhaust.

    Subframe out!! Reinforcements, wheel bearings, new brake lines and some painting are on the docket.

    Working on it. Close to getting it done but mainly waiting on specialized plates to come and then it will be thread-worthy! E30: Recieved Gargastic diff reinforcement, 2nd diff mount and rear trailing arm reinforcements. The off season fun begins!

    Guys!!! Real Estate has been crazy leading to passing out after work/family time and not checking in here. I just sent an email to CATuned and asked them for axels. They showed up relatively quickly. I think I stretched my driver side diff flange bolts due to a bunch of grease in the new axle. Only got one to click at 74 ft/lbs. Wiped the grease off the passenger side once I pushed the bolts through the axle and all torqued perfectly. I got 2 Catuned axles for the record. For the brakes I took out the bias valve and popped in a (I think) 88 rabbit master cylinder. Couldn't get the pedal to feel right. Looked closer to find out that the MC was leaking out the back/firewall side. SECOND VW MC that did this to me. Popped in the stock e30 one and pedal felt great. I have another 21MM VW MC that I'll try but if that doesn't work I'll go aftermarket. That's my touring! I have a huge amount of pics and details on that one. I was blowing Hallway Pat up for parts for about 3 months. Ughhh.

    Finally got the brakes sorted out! Also installed this 4/0 ground cable I made. Now on to driving it as much as possible prior to the snow!

    I broke off about 3/4 of the way through the route. It was a blast!! Then the Slownoma showed up and launched rocks everywhere! Lol. Rampelsauce was given her the beans too!

    A window down, music up day in the Black Pearl lead to the front left speaker blowing. I'd amassed parts to ad 12awg speaker wire and ditch the amalgamation of smaller wire and crimp connectors. Crimped and soldered the connectors. After the Alpine Type S 5.25 speakers were installed and all was wired back up I "tuned" the amps best I could. The reggae jams are alive once again!

    I'm glad I chose wisely!

    Got a new driver's side valve cover off of the 2010-2013 LS motors. Part number:12642655. It has an updated breather design and hopefully won't suck as much oil through the vacuum pump system. Also did an oil and filter change. NAPA Gold Filter and Valvoline 10w-30 conventional.
