Ahh, finally got my cable and internet back haha. Yesterday i changed my oil, trans fluid, and diff fluid. Today i cut my rotors....

I found that ALL my rubber bushings are shot, 3 rotted brake hoses, 3 bad calipers, 2 bad caliper brackets, rotors and pads are history, and i found that my control arms are nasty with rust, my balljoints are iffy...

SOOO as of 2 hours ago, the plan is to get some money together and take the car off the road for a bit in the summer, get a V3 clip, 100% full swap, drivetrain and rhd dash, and while thats off the road, i have a choice of a few cars that my friends boss has, talons, 240s, maybe a legacy.... OR... a 82 kawisaki KZ1000 lol. One of my favorite bikes ever, which i can pick up real cheap, but im not 100% yet, i just know that i dont like driving my car in the shape its in, and im going to have my friend at school paint my car and do bodywork, anyone know where i can get Aspen White Subie paint? I think the code was like E55? cant remember...

Found a garage complex uptown. 2 Bay, maybe 20ft wide, 30 deep? No power but there is electric across the lot, and theres lights outside the doors so i might be able to splice in an outlet or two and run some 220 in that bitch.

What ya think? Enough to swap engines over and have room for a parts pile?

more lighting will be WAY worth in when you start working

Ehh... More like a RHD Full V3/V4 STI conversion haha. Im gonna jack the electric off the lights in front and run some outlets on the side walls, maybe throw some sound-mat in there and run a compressor. Its all stone so it purdy quiet in there as is.

My car started this morning and only ran on 2 cylinders for about 5 mins. I think the coilpack went bad like the last motor, then i got to school, took out all my gauges and cleaned the interior up a bit, and i checked the plugs and stuff. OEM coil, OEM wires, OEM plugs (which it was running excellent, not rich nor lean). Im gonna go to the dealer when i get money and get some things, but my plug tube seals are leaking, valve cover gaskets, head gaskets and a few valve cover bolt seals too. I hope itll make it till i can get the car apart, i have faith in my little boxer so it should be cool for a while ;)

I remembered i bought V3 Headlights and Grill so im going to use those to complete the look. I might even trade my trunk for another white coupe trunk, or even a 4 door with the lower spoiler. I also remembered i have my megasquirt i gotta sell haha, that and the ej255 and tons of parts are still availible. I might keep my turbo ej20 manifold and modify that to fit the HX35 in the car.
