    Saw this cool wagon in Portland, didnt realize there were two chicks in the car when I took this lol


    Otherwise, nothing really new with the car. I moved last month which also gave me a full side yard driveway so *sicc mods** should happen with this car soon. Also moved shops, so back in bike frame building action too. Really looking forward to having some free time to get some work done.


    Found a moped in the basement of the new house, got it running and might use it as a daily while the car is under the knife here and there. Need to get it registered so I can feel okay about putting a big bore kit on it lol. Moped parts are dangerously cheap

    Yeah I plan on reupholstering them sometime in the distant future, hopefully I'll be able to find something that matches my rear seats. Also, I've got some strut housings already but thanks! I only shortened them 1.5" as opposed to 2", so sliiiiightly worried about having enough suspension travel but I also don't plan on lowering the car that much, probably just being paranoid.

    Replaced my window seals with some much better condition used units I got from a user here. Considerable road noise decrease and they donÂ’t leak when I wash my car anymore. Now I just need to do the fronts and sunroof seal (leaks when I wash the car) and get/make a roof rack fairing I also installed some GTI recaros. SoOoo much comfier than the clapped out comfort seats I had. I went to buy some brackets from a user here but the box came to me with a bracket shaped hole in it - they had fallen out at some point and were MIA. So I looked at some pictures, took some measurements and made some Took this as an opportunity to clean until my tiny shop vac clogged. Oh well Good enough. I was able to use the stock seat belt mount/brace thing and hardware after I cut this chunk off both ends. Had to get a little creative with the spacer situation Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    but boy do I love me a defender truck. There's a guy in the nor cal land rover club with a tdi single cab defender truck that's just drool worthy.
    I didn't know they could look so modern until I saw this one. I also didn't know they came in a truck version. Pretty cool to see just by chance. It makes me want to look into them and see what all the commotion is about.

    I saw this the other day. I'd imagine you can respect the amount of work that's been put into it. I honestly thought they released a new version or something.

    Changed my oil and finally slapped a roof rack on. Unfortunately very late in the season but I’m stoked to finally start riding some trails after work again.

    Running rotella 15w-40 this time around. Would have liked to try something slightly thicker at operating temps but that was all oriellys had in stock. So far things sound less ticky than before

    Hoping to have some ~*nice aesthetic mods*~ done this weekend ;)

    Blake B is printing some prototype knObs so that's exciting


    Helped my friend change his oil pump gasket that we had made out of a cereal box a year ago. Lasted 10k miles!
    But then his trans went out so we pulled that:

    It's a huge job on a range rover classic and requires drilling out all the rivets that hold the plate that holds the shifter in place.


    I also did a thing with the e30:


    New fan and fan clutch, came with the car when I bought it but there hadn't been any cooling issues until recently. The needle was just creeping past the center mark on my water temp gauge when I would sit at a stop light for a while. This replacement seems to have stopped that from happening.

    I also bought a water pump, thermostat and associated bits that I'll get to in another 2 months. The WP bearing sounds pretty angry so I should do it soon

    shoot me a PM and lets chat

    Edit: Realized that previous wording isn’t super clear lol. It just needs some fiddling to get working again

    So I've been pretty busy traveling around and not working on the e30. It also just developed a coolant leak at the water pump so that will be getting replaced soon. During my travels I met a 140lb chocolate lab:


    A 190e evo 2 that I took a crappy photo of


    and that's all I've got to share from my trips that's worth sharing.

    In other news, my friend works next to the BM Spec guys and I got to take a look at Brian's e34 track car.

    Looks pretty fun, its m52 swapped with an e90 6 speed and a 4.10 LSD

    A good friend of mine came back from a round-the-country road trip in his sc'ed e36 m3 with some big ole tires (275 section tires all around. Very sticky)


    In regards to the e30, all I've done is install a rear 14.5mm sway bar and didnt take any photos of it because my hands were too greasy to grab my phone, but holy guacamole the car actually goes around corners like an e30. Definitely the most important mod I could have done.

    I got blocked in for a while at work the other day:


    And here it is after I washed it last week

    So he went and grabbed a hold of the bottom and unbent it. The cop just shook his head and said ok and left. Rather than cutting it try bending a fold in it to the shape you are looking for.
    ah good call. Thanks for the heads up

    R3V needs a group buy for a billet M30 block.
    holy guacamole I'd give an arm and a leg.

    Euro bumpskis soon. I ordered some color match paint for the valence and will be trimming the front plate to fit in the euro plate spot...unless thats illegal. I've seen it done on a bunch of local 911s but those cars definitely don't get daily'ed. Until then though, I'll need all the extra sail I can get in the off chance I get a tailwind cuz the m10 life is a slow one.
