  1. Is this a thing for all the x70Rs or just specific to your car? Been away for a while, not sure if that was a tuning issue for you or something.
  2. Wish I was still out there so I could see this forreal! Real proud and happy for you man
  3. Guess they hit everywhere! Pretty cool.
  4. Just wait till October and you'll be glad you did it. Minus the snow birds...🙄
  5. If you can afford a GT3, you can afford a $10 latte.
  6. Yesterday at work. also some bonus pictures from the last month.
  7. I’ll do anything for free school! but yeah that whole thing was ridiculous.
  8. Bumpers fixed now! Kinda. New one is repainted and on but the dude did a shit prep job. Scottsdale, AZ! Going to continue school and work for Starbucks actually, my girlfriend (who’s from PHX) is getting her degree with ASU through Sbucks and that’s my plan as well. Getting out of the dealership life is exciting. Hoping to focus on more personal projects now that I’ll have some creative energy to spare.
  9. I misjudged a U-turn last year and my bumper ate sh*t. Still sits like that. Moving to AZ so that will get fixed with everything else before the big drive.
  10. My M66 swap won't be done until summer at this point...so that will debut next year. So excited for this year. Hoping it won't rain of course...because that sucks. Nothing new for my car this year unfortunately, but next year should have tune, m66, and exhaust so thats neat.
  11. Awesome. Yeah I know people have done the metal route...but that just pushes stress to the next weakest link of course.
  12. How much of the center console really gets removed though? And I guess I could go delrin. Not on my priority list, I understand the whole "youre already in there" mentality of it though. What fiberglass reinforcement are you referencing? I definitely need that.
  13. SO this is apparently unlocked! Quick update...still not M66 swapped! Been busy focusing on other things. I still hope to get all the parts together for it and drive up to Ben to have it done. In my absence, I have done a few other things to the R. Kaplan rear coilovers with QA1 rear shocks, Snabb RIP kit, and I have a P2R fuel rail cover to clean up/paint and throw on as well. I posted in the off topic thread a while back about this, but I also installed a DO88 radiator and Ebay drop in IC. My current inventory for the M66 swap is P1 M66 Shifter and cables x70 pedal assembly 99 XC passenger axles Flywheel Pressure plate I still need a drivers axle, brackets, seals, fluids, all the other misc parts, and a Ford Probe clutch. When I get it tuned (Steve-o), I'm thinking 18psi. If that's the case, I'll probably upgrade my 19T with billet comp wheel, 9blade turbine, and Kinuguawa WG actuator. Maybe a Synapse CBV/BOV.
  14. Already ordered the windshield Tiz! Also waiting on rear coilovers to come in to fix my beat nivos. Then M66!!!!
  15. This years Carlisle was still a good time despite the rain tbh. Every year gets better as my friends get more organized on what works and what doesn't for camping. Next year I reallllly hope to have the M66 done. We shall see, but enough excuses!
  16. haaaaaaaaay so, how do I get my thread unarchived? Kinda haven't been around
  17. Installed do88 rad and ebay ic. Rad mount snapped on my 2 year old oem one *eye roll*
  18. not sure....its levels are definitely edited but i dont believe it was shopped at all. Heres one of the pictures I took, for comparison.
  19. Some spot in Cape May Courthouse. more specifically, 39° 10' 46" N, 74° 51' 4" W
  20. thanks pal. I didnt take the picture unfortunately, but too stunning not to share.
  21. how it sat Saturday night.....
  22. More exhaust noises also polished/sealed/waxed the other day
