Post A Picture Of Your Latest Purchase

Recommended Posts

Didn't want to go for the delrin Adam? They really are nice! And even in the cold not that bad.

my guess is that they were replaced on a vehicle of his that is not the Yellow... no reason to go to delrin on a DD.

This is actually for my yellow. With worn out bushings (226k) and coilovers the car is really rough over bumps. I figure with new oem bushings it should help the ride a little by absorbing more of the shock. If I had lowering springs instead of coilovers I would have considered going with delrin.

Also I DD the yellow in the summer, except when it's raining :).

So what was the issue keeping it off the road?

All summer? The engine leaked oil faster than you could put it in

Last week? Exhaust leak at the manifold

Today I'm fixing a coolant leak at the 99+ oil cooler, and repairing my ABS wire since it decided to rub against my wheel.

Just the little things at this point.

Lots of blue boxes. Interior panels, suspension bits, and one of the last new radiator fan shrouds ever made (production year in 1990).

You, sir, are OCD. And I love it.

I now have the school of thought that if you can get a brand new OEM interior panel, it is much better than getting a used one from a yard (unless you can't find any or it is cost prohibitive). A used panel will probably never be perfect.

Yangotang tells me.. "Do you just buy new parts so you can get upset when they get damaged?"

New ones?! What's wrong with the current set?

Brand new, a lot of OEM wheels are reduced in price on this side of the pond.

Current set is for the wintertires, and needs a repaint before next winter.

My buddy's dad got us admission passes FO FREE but I bought a garage pass for the weekend. Probably going to hit up the race tomorrow afternoon/evening so that I can see some night racing as well. *MANY EXCITES*

Bring some ear plugs if you don't want to lose your hearing.

It was incredible and we had such an awesome time. Definitely going back next year...and for both days.
