subie: repainted the trunk, reinforced the front bumper cover, installed hella 500's (for nighttime rally'n), ran cables to relocate the battery, changed the passenger front caliper which was dragging after the last rallyX, bled the brakes, started patching holes in the sides from removing the mouldings.
still need to wire the lights (decide if i am going to mount seperate switches or run them off of the high beam circuit), mount the battery box and make the connections permanent for the relocation, still want to mount side skirts and mudflaps.

4runner: got a new EGR Valve and installed it, still may need a throttle position sensor though. Also have to get some V6 calipers for the front brake upgrade.

acura: just put some spirited miles on it

Just ordered Plugs, Fuel Filter, Air Filter and a emblem to replace the one that fell off my key fob from Pelican Parts.

The dealer tried to charge me 127.00 for 6 spark plugs. I did buy a new intake boot from them though for $45.00 (old one ripped).

Sideskirts? Why are you adding weight? It's a rally car, fuck the looks man. Mud flaps I understand... Actually no I don't.

I'm just kidding..

Got my Jamb Nuts. Had to special order a bag of 25 for $3.xx

Spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, new intake boots (old ones ripped at the "accordian" expanders) and cleaned the Idle Control Valve. I'll change the oil later today. I pretty much did a Service II but didn't cost a grand.

I need to change the the thrust arms/bushings soon but it's not that bad yet.

I was about to put some Mr. Wulf stickers on each of the cars... but I can't bring myself to it...

















































...because I'd really like to find those static type (rather than the adhesive type) that I stick on the window from the inside of the car. The search continues.

removed the front bumper, grille, headlight mount assembly, brake master cylinder, heater, cowl, tailgate, front fenders, and who knows what else from the '66 C-10. It's pretty much stripped from the firewall forward now.

spent some quality time with a grinder/chisel/crowbar yesterday and today, removing welds where I initially tacked in (a few dozen tacks...and a few seams) some diamond plate into the bed (this was several years ago). I changed my mind and decided to put a wood bed back in it.

on the '66 truck:

pulled some more bodywork, grinded out some more welds on the diamond plate in the bed, welded a patch panel into a rusted fender, started sanding on the bed.

gotta get some more gas for the acetylene torch before we get all the diamond plate (and then old wood) out of the bed.

picked up a shipment of goodies (intake manifold, pair of weber 32/36 carbs, pair of air cleaners, carb linkage, timing set, fuel reg, gasket set, all the engine parts that my machinist doesn't need to do his thing, and probably some other stuff I'm forgetting.

You're being way to anal. It's just a sticker. You can remove it in 30 seconds as long as you put it on the glass.

Yeah. I know.

But I did get a nice metal NCSU plate frame and put it on the is250. Looks great.

didn't do anything to the vehicles today, per se, but I did swap out the acetylene torch cylinders for some full bottles.

I'm thinking that I probably have the only Honda S2000 in town with a bottle of oxygen and a bottle of acetylene in the passenger floorboard, resting on the child seat.

Changed my oil in the driveway, but left it on the ramps so that if it snowed the right amount, it would look like it was sitting on top.

dan got all the bolts attaching the bed removed...we can pick it up, but don't have anywhere good to put it without cleaning up a bunch of other stuff that's in the way.

i got pretty much all of the left side of the bed stripped to bare metal now, and dan got about 1/4 of the right side of the bed stripped.

My to-do maintenance / fix list keeps growing:
-Oil change
-Air filter change
-New starter, mine's dragging like crazy
-New battery, mine's 4 years old
-Replace at least 2 window motors (power windows ftl - give me manual ones)
-Replace front and rear wiper washer motors
-Figure out why so many things in the dash are smoking:
Turning on front wiper washer blows fuse every time and smokes from the signal stick
Turning the a/c system to "Vent" burns something behind the switch every time
-Need new shocks all around
-Rear springs straightening, almost horizontal

oil change for the s2000 today.


Replaced the thermostat valve on the Integra, which had been original. And I apparently didn't fit the hosing smoothly enough when I bolted it back together b/c was leaking a bunch of coolant...

but I don't feel with dealing with that shit again right now
