Painted my calipers red (because racecar) with a little bit of HKS oil spill for SnG's. It's a bit "boy-racer", but I think it's funny. lol

Also got a picture of the car in the daylight with the new TE07's on, with the Potenza RE-71R's

Also picked up a new RS front bumper from someone off the forum here, so I'm going to need to fix some of the bodywork and get it cleaned up and painted before I put it on.

Went to the junkyard today and found a wood trimmed steering wheel (to match my shift knob) for the crazy high price of $6. Picture of it on the way home in it's musty state:

And a picture of it cleaned up some, with a JDM Momo airbag I picked up at boxerfest a couple years back.

Can't wait to put this in, not to get rid of the Nardi/NRG combo, but so that the dash "airbag" light goes off! lol

That's a nice combo. The woodgrain steering wheel is advertised as being a Momo as well, but I didn't notice any markings when I had one. Looks good tho.

So I tried to swap the steering wheels yesterday, which was supposed to be a 10 minute job, only to find that whoever put the quick release on screwed me over. Not sure why you wouldn't just fold the wires back under the column if you weren't using them instead of this. Cutting plugs is only acceptable in the junkyard. Open to different ideas on how to proceed, so let me know what you guys think would be the best recovery option.

So the quick release went back on until I can get the plug situation sorted. Picture of the current interior setup (peep the nice shift knob, that should match the wood wheel about perfectly). Excuse the dirty car, didn't have time to clean it before crushing some cones.

The local SCCA group had it's AutoX test and tune. The humble 1.8l was only 1.2s slower than the green corvette behind it. Used the old wheel/tire setup; trying to use up the tread before going over to the Rays/RE-71's.
