Haha. if only..


Yay, it started right up.

And crawled out under its own power.

Also gained access to the toolbox.


Help me. I am addicted to buying tools..

Had to hold back today,but check these out :

Wera tools. Ratchet 10mm.and the Wera 3/8 drive.

you just pop the drive square to which way you want to go. meaning it can have a simpler,stronger gear set in it. pretty neat.
And these will make changing the clutch so much easier.

An extra long articulated ratchet wrench. For those pesky transmission bolts. Definitely need some of these .
With a lot of work to do, scouting some tools could be a good thing.

Man, that Wera ratcheting wrench looks stellar! $20 on Amazon, tough to swallow.

Haha, it's one of those things that gets overlooked. but a necessary upgrade.
and for an Sti? it had to be pink. Blue wasn't going to cut it.

might have to put one in the wife's car. . . . .

Been thinking, perhaps a post of all the stuff that is wrong with my car?
It's actually needing a LOT of repairs.

and the stuff i am looking at. or want to buy for the car. ie: the things i drool over when shopping for parts. -hey, might even buy some.

this thread isn't all the best pictures of my car. it's the journey.

so join me, on an erratic fun filled, some times alcohol powered ride into Brap.

Well, it's fast enough.

0-100km in approximately 4.7 seconds.
I never hard launch it. but when the boost comes on in 2nd gear? the correct term is "Stupid fast".

It just needs a lot of care. a complete restoration, with upgrades towards handling and reliability. if that makes it faster as a bi-product? that's a bonus.

speaking of which, today is inventory day. to see what parts i still have for it.

had a bit of time to go outside, with no access to the tap? gave it a bucket wash.



and to assess where to start. what's good,what's bad.
but this? is the ugly.

The rust rears it's head. that will have to be done when i have the front bumper replaced and sideskirts refreshed. it still sucks though.

The bad? i can't drive it.

-But the good? Today i ordered some Brake lines from Project Mu. so the brake upgrade will be complete. of course, in green.
