I've been there when I lived here before but I forgot about the lack of car stuff to do in winter. The only car people who live around me are a bunch of Honda owners and talking with them is like beating your head against a wall. It feels so good when you finally stop. I was hoping there were some Subaru owners around up for getting together to watch some WRC when/if it comes on Speedvision.
Autocross season is still a couple months away . . . good idea, though.
As for gaskets . . . did the parts not come with gaskets? If you're gonna need OEM gaskets, then I'd say just go to a dealer. If not, then try Manik Muffler on RT40. It's close to the Circuit City (on the same side of RT40). They do a lot of custom exhaust work . . . they might have some gaskets for your application.
Well its too cold to have a bar b q right now so that idea is out. Not a whole lot going on car related. We could get together to install an ass load of parts on my car. That should be enough to keep everyone busy for a few hours.
BTW, I dunno if you saw the thread about the photo shoot but I think the meet is this Sunday (yes, Superbowl Sunday). If you go to the www.nasioc.com forums in the mid-atlantic forum, you'll see the Mid-A Calendar thread. It MIGHT be a mini-meet . . .
