  1. The C70 looks incredible, absolutely factory fresh. Where are you finding all these brand-new OEM parts? If you find another black walnut steering wheel, let me know, a piece of the wood on mine sadly cracked off badly earlier this year 😞 It doesn't look too bad glued up (a weird gap appeared somehow), but I'd eventually like to make it mint
  2. Ahhh true!! That vent bugs me for sure 😛 I took these photos in a huge rush! Next year I'll remember 😉 Thanks! I really like the boost gauge too, matches really well. Sadly the car is back to being dirty again, a dusty parking lot + rain and no car wash area really sucks!!
  3. Put about 6,000km on the car since I last posted, and it has continued being good to me! A couple weeks ago I replaced both rear wheel bearings and parking brake pads and hardware, along with the final original engine mount - the passenger side one, and trunk struts. It's nice that I've only had to spend about $300 on parts for the last 12,000km of driving... After the mechanical work I spent a day and a half detailing the interior and exterior. I haven't been as lucky with the cosmetic stuff as the mechanical - the clear coat on the rear wing has begun to fail pretty badly, the headliner droop actually came apart at the rear window so it's taped up for the time being, and back in May someone appears to have dropped a bike onto my driver's side rear door and left a nice big dent! That said, those are terribly difficult or expensive fixes, and the car still cleans up like this 🙂
  4. The 1 day a year that it's totally clean!
  5. Yes!! I love how orangey-red it came out IS A NEW WAY I LIKE TO BE
  6. Looks way better on film... Something something period correct something something...
  7. Yeah something like 0.5g average for that time on a 0-100 run! Had some snowy fun the past few days
  8. As far as I know, the exhaust is all stock! I've never checked the exhaust manifold specifically but based on previous owners I'd imagine it is stock. I have the IPD intake, and removed the upper turbo heat shield, wish I had somewhere to store the hood blanket so I could take that off too... Thanks Jason, my butt dyno had been telling me it would definitely be a mid-6s 0-100 car so it was fun to confirm it 😄 Might be able to get low-6s with my summer tires and a bit of practice... Next time I'm at your place we'll try it out!
  9. Obsessed with the noise this thing makes. Second time ever launching it with the M56
  10. Thanks! Really tied the front end together now that the black section looks proper for the first time since I've owned it!
  11. Hahaha thanks for making me laugh And yes! Found a great shop to fiberglass it back to life, I'm taking it there in a couple weeks
  12. Had a bit of an incident with the local wildlife...
  13. I love it too Looks just right in the 850R!
