  1. Wishing everyone well this morning - Stay safe and stay healthy!
  2. So sweet! Did you really find just 1 unpined wire? Kind of nice to have such a smoking gun in this case.
  3. Small small dent but one that I always saw when getting in the car. Especially with the motion detected lighting in the garage always perfectly lighting it up. PDR guy did a great job.
  4. Not the first one to use that form !! ๐Ÿ˜‚
  5. Just trying to avoid archiving, there are dozens of us here, DOZENS!
  6. Thankfully the cars are setup with diagonal circuits so you do still get stopping power when a line is broken.
  7. Moved to jewels this year. Big difference for sure.
  8. I think Kodak is Gothic? This is Art Deco baby! Buffalo NY City Hall.
  9. I am speed! ___ Love these two pictures I got this past weekend
  10. have to balance the cost to rebuild with the enjoyment factor of seeing them though ๐Ÿ™‚ Was also thinking more on this and It's certainly interesting to debate. But my recent thoughts were, these are all probably made in a similar way right? N2 + some oil + magic? How do these fair then on a big sexy beast like this?
  11. Fill from the bottom drain from the top!
  12. Not the first person to bring this up. Talking with Ohlins USA "I donโ€™t really know of a max temperature, you would prefer to keep them as cool as possible. I would say just from my track experience to have the best performance keep them around 150 to 200 would be optimum. " Drivers side could be easily moved, the passenger side is harder to re-position though. If you figure out a spot to place them I'd give it a shot. I used the temp stickers and determined they reach about 180 in there after a long drive.
  13. So they seem to be tight, Oetiker clamp is as tight is it could be from what I can tell. Maybe clean and see if it comes back.
  14. I'll start there, not a bad idea. I think I red locktited the fronts not sure about the back. Comes with some on there but probably not enough.
  15. Maybe.. Perhaps clean and monitor if it comes back. Coming from somewhere up there I think. Weird that it's so liquid despite nothing back there being that thin.
  16. Wagons back in action and tearing it up. Went all space shuttle on the intercooler piping too. Trying to determine what his liquid on the bottom side is though. Idk if some ones has something similar on this part of the tank.
  17. Really ready to have the wagon back. Got desperate. It's on street view out at Bens now lol
  18. Was a lot of fun. Too short though ๐Ÿ˜ž F1.7 is to shallow. left the wrong export settings on that C in the corner is not needed! ๐Ÿ˜„
  19. Still not warm enough to sit outside.
  20. Did move come cables and tubes around, extended where the boost gauge feed is so it sits inline with another vac line. Also tucked the TCV and MAF wiring further under the airbox. More just looking good
  21. Someone toucha ma Spagett! That section needs love I'll figure something out with it for sure. Also Griotts best in show spray detail wax whatever. The light blue one ๐Ÿ™‚ I had one on there very briefly years ago. I put one back on because I won that box last year and after the first road trip in the xc70 with it, keeping the tools, oil, other big stuff up there. I found it really nice to not have that jangling etc in the cabin. So it's a sacrifice I can make at this point in time. Really used to laugh at people with the stuff on top of the car but I kind of understand it now. I've got 1.5 sets of full rails still and I'll keep grabbing nice ones as I see them at the junkyard too. With all that I've got two road trips planned in it this summer. One to Deleware for a wedding and another to long beach island. So extra bits and everything would be swell to drag along. Thanks!
  22. Getting to the bottom of some oil in the cylinder. Looks pretty much like my catch can setup was a stupid ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD idea and moving it to a good spot with proper suction is finally letting the built up oil through the intake and cylinder 1 and 2. That does seem to have now cleared up. Picked up a very cheap Snap-on scope and got some pictures in there. Those are the intake side valves Again no oil hanging from them Things are looking better and I'll check back in a few more hard sessions of driving to see what's cleared up. You can see the think residue oil that was living in the throttle body coupler. Had a good amount of the DEI reflecta gold left over from the fire wall work. Put it to use on my airbox. Not the biggest fan of how all the tubes and wires kind of have to criss cross there next to the intake and intake plenum. But maybe that's just reality of it. Also added a roof rack and some brand new rails I got from ebay. Washed and used Wipe New on the rails and rubber trim pieces. Got two full sets from the junkyard just to have the ability to pick through the nicest ones.
  23. Have the wagon back still needs a little of this and that. Lots more to post too little time to do so!
