... you really need to upload the videos from last weekend's Auto-x. Nice driving and use of the handbrake (even though I now live in NC, I still love seeing the SCCV updates and all the cars I used to have a blast against)!
Ran into some bad luck a couple weeks ago and hit a deer laying in the middle of the road on my way to work. Fortunately, it wasn't too bad considering the situation; I'm just glad it didn't fly into my windshield.
My rallitek skidplate, without a doubt, saved my exhaust manifold and oil pan. I think it also reduced the push-back of my lower radiator support.
Front bumper skin obviously took it hard.
My authentic v6 STi lip was destroyed. I actuality recovered the missing half on my way home from work. I zip-tie stitched it back together for shits n giggles.
My kevlar fog light cover took it like a champ. Bent the bracket a bit but that was easy enough to straighten.
Picking this up today!
v4 STi Ej20k swapped

She’s got some quarter rust which may get addressed at some point. She’s needs a heart transplant and I already have a 65k Ej20k...
HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY
