Ha! My car started out two colors and I keep being tempted to add more. "I can just test-fit the white wing and blue front bumper and then I'll take them off and spray them later."

So local upholstery shops wanted stupid money for pliers and hog rings, so once again amazon to the rescue with some chinesium tools! These were $20 with a bag of rings, and their recovered size is pretty much perfect to the OEM ones, and i got the freshly washed covers nice and toight, like a tiger.





and some bonus footage of our new warehouse from the second floor, its yuge!

Fuck, got my oil sample back and its exactly what i was expecting it to show. Fingers crossed its not enough damage to cause problems anytime soon, but i had to limp the car a good quarter mile down the road with the injector washing the fuck out of the cylinder that had a bad coil pack. Its crazy how easily motors will melt down with these big uncapped injectors...

I changed the oil last week after finishing the roof and have had zero problems, ill do a leakdown and visual check on the motor either tomorrow night or saturday to check whats going on.

No go back a page or two, i had a coil connector fail and had to limp the car down the highway for a minute. It would puff smoke on startup from all the fuel in the oil, it would off-gas from the oil up into the intake/cylinders and give me puffs on hot starts, i changed the oil last week and it went away. Car runs great, fucking boogies at 18psi so thats where im leaving it. Maps are 16psi and 18si w/launch/ALS.

I knew it would wash the cylinder but i had to get off the highway, i was expecting lots of fuel and ring material, thankfully no excessive steel or aluminum so the cylinder and piston should be fine. Ill scope it this weekend, i want to change the plugs and ready some new GR coil packs i just need to put the dwell into the map.
