Looking great, can't wait to see it tomorrow!
I see you're learning something I've been trying to practice for a few years, now: There's two ways to things, right and again! That's why my Cabby is still in process, I don't want to be doing it again.

I saw the car too, but something seemed off with the trans mount. I don't know what it was but it had me staring at it for a few minutes trying to figure out why I thought it looked off. the rest of the car looked good, wish I could have chatted but I didn't see you there and my wife was walking off. sometimes I think I should put a leash on her.
Thanks! sorry i wandered of to say some hellos for a few minutes figures i missed some people!
I'll take new pics of the current cooling system setup tomorrow when I finally pull it out of the garage and give her a good cleaning.
Thanks for the kind words, I'm definitely loving the seats, Tim/KDI did a great job, definitely recommended!
Ground Clearance is better.. but still not 100% care-free.. but definitely a lot better..
I'm trying to get both cars down for the weekend... hoping luck is with me and I can get them out!
New Radiator setup:
Gratuitous "I just washed my car" photo.
also,i see you capped of the vacuum port near the throttlebody. if you dont mind, can you tell me what you used?
im at the stage where i need to run coolant and vacuum lines and want to cut out as much as possible.
Great news- The cabby had a flawless trip to and from H2O and my new cooling system/radiator setup kept the car nice and cool.. very pleased with how it did!
Bad News- Had a mishap when a friend was pulling the car into the WheelWhores GTG Thursday night and the fender caught the tire on a steep incline and bent the fender all up
Luckily friends helped pop the dent out and I was able to live with it for the weekend. I already sourced an NOS OEM euro fender, just need a new wheel arch and I'll have them resprayed so the car is damage free for next summer.
This recent event and the oilpan issue earlier this summer made me realize that I really need to put airride on the car if I want it to be as usable as I'd like... so this winter I plan to gather airride parts. The car is already setup to go quite low, and I think with air it could really sit nicely when air'ed out. I'm kinda over wrecking my cars driving them stupid low.. (especially ones with decent paint).. so I could care less if I'm "selling out" again.. just called getting old!
I also finally found the steering wheel I've wanted for the car, I'll post it up once I have it in hand
Some pics from my buddy Fraser this past weekend

I was the guy who f'd up the fender...You can all line up and kick me in the sack.
Driving all of Matt's cars was a great treat though. Both were very fun well built cars to drive and I only hope I can drive them again.

finally got the steering wheel I've been chasing for ages for this car.. OG Recaro wheel, then my buddy Nick (rabbito) came over and helped me get some OG EA fabric fitted in the place of what was on the wheel. The wheel itself is a bit rough around the grip, but for now it'll do until I have it recovered.
