  1. possibly interested in the birch......looking forward to the pics
  2. LOL. Yeah auto window function is pretty sweet; it's spoiling me in the S60. Keep me posted on your progress in gathering relays; I have another friend also on the lookout and I am when I get out to the JYs (although that's rare since I got my permanent full time job last year). That said, at the rate you are picking them up, you may end up getting to 7 before we get any lol. There are hardly any 850s left in New England. And thanks, I'm on a wave of inspiration right now so I'm trying to get it done mechanically before that wave lasts. Hopefully that'll happen before the end of July and then tow it down to Ben's to have him and SteveO get it tuned and running.
  3. wow I neglected this post for a long time, been busy actually working on my 850R the last few weeks now that I actually have enough parts to get stuff done instead of sitting around on the computer shopping for parts lol.....anyway I think I need like 6 or 7.
  4. LOL. Actually I think my house was renovated in the mid-80s by someone who had absolutely zero perception of right angles. But I wish that was my biggest problem with the driveway; its proximity to neighbor's dead trees and the fact that it is occasionally below sea level are much larger problems. We've been shopping for a new one for a while, but finding an acceptable driveway in our price range that also comes with an acceptable house and preferably a garage has proven to be quite a challenge when working with a real estate market where a huge portion of the housing was built before garages were really a thing.
  5. need a bunch of these for a project, preferably with pigtail to the main switch harness but can wire straight to the relay if I have to. lmk what you got
  6. late to the color party because the T-5R and T5 SE were in off site storage till today....but red, yellow AND frost green wins (you can just catch a peek of the red hood in the building where much magic is currently happening)
  7. Yeah I think that is a Steve question At least you are starting with a MY00 which already has a more powerful EMS than MY99.
  8. Good point. Can you control the intake VVT on ME7?
  9. I'd throw it in and then work on the head from the other engine
  10. Europe....if you're seriously interested I can probably hook you up with a group deal on shipping
  11. Yeah, that's what happens when you put a ECE lens on a DOT reflector........you have to swap the glass AND the reflector. Cheaper to just buy a whole Depo ECE housing at that point.
  12. Bought a manual T-5R shift knob and boot. It even came with free parts car
  13. Traded in all the Volvos for a boat! Have a 609 hood that has been flooded with salt water left over if anyone is interested lol. And some S70 heated rear seats (those didn't get flooded).
  14. Bought a beater banjo so I don't have to take my Gibson everywhere anymore. This Zephyr Surplus place on ebay has some killer deals on factory reject instruments right now if anyone's shopping and doesn't mind spending a couple hours setting it up. And then I completely disassembled it LOL. Was absolutely unplayable out of the box.....not enough neck angle, the action was hopelessly high. Luckily banjos are super easy to deal with so I added this shim and was up and running in a half hour.
