But, after a night of bourbon, I really wanted a cup of coffee, which isnít really possible.

The ho/motels at which I stay usually have coffee. If you mean your drive into work, I just waited until I got work and made a pot in my office.

When my wife travels, I leave at 6:50 and have a hour plus commute. A cup of coffee to drink when I sit in traffic would be nice.

When I leave my buddies house, who doesn’t drink coffee, on a 7 hour drive, a cup of coffee would be nice.

You have an AT. I don’t think you realize how useless the cup holders in the 6mt center console is.

Then I’d complain about sluggish response.

Late update of brake install... so far so good, but they haven’t been pushed yet. Will do a more thorough review in time.






Don’t mind the dirt, she is due to be cleaned.... really shoulda did the barrels when the wheels were off but figured there’d be significant dust through pad bed in.

Today I had the oil changed because last change I bought 0W-20 instead of 5W-30. Only 2500 miles on full synthetic but that includes a track event. Sending Blackstone a sample.

Also broke down and had the remote adjuster cables installed for the MeisterR dampers. I was reluctant because I thought holes had to be drilled in the package shelf. Turns out, the hole in the body above the damper is enlarged and the adjuster cable feeds between the rear seat upper cushion top and the front of the package shelf.

Was going to flush the coolant but a hygrometer showed it was still like new.

When the damper adjusters were instilled we discovered one of the rear end links had cracked at the socket and the upper bolt was nowhere to be found. I honestly can't tell when it disappeared, maybe at the track event. That would explain the understeer feeling I've had since the change to coil-overs. Called Z1 this afternoon and SPC end links will be here Thursday if The Flying Spaghetti Monster wills it.

That Caliper, headlight wheel and body color combo looks really good. Looking forward to the Wilwood review. Did you change or paint the rears to match too?

I did all four corners but the iPhone camera isn’t good enough to show any colour detail from any distance... hence no side profile

Very subtle add, making it less busy since you got the amber eyelid.

I like it.

Thought about making it white for body colour... decided subtle instead.

I'm not big on aesthetic mods but I'd like have the headlight buckets painted body color. Looks awesome on my buddy's yellow Ferrari 360.

I know that I've seen pics of that here on the forum somewhere on a Moonlight White Sedan. It's... interesting. Kind of weird, but certainly unique. Looks like the C6 Vette.

Well, this builder of planets like the weirdness of fjords, and I like the weirdness of those Corvette lights.
