      Saturday I got the car aligned. I drove it home a block and went to sleep. I woke up around 7pm and drove 33 miles before my front wheel came off. I grinder in the rotor for a few hundred yards, driver fender is destroyed, wheel hub is bent. I'm going to the shop in an hour and raising some hell. Wuste is in a few weeks so I'm hoping they can do the work in time.

      Why would an alignment shop pull the wheel off?

      i'm pretty sure the only place to get methanol is kellerstrass/jensens oil, they're about 4800 south and redwood road. only open mon-fri. that's all i could find when i was running it a couple years ago.

      Raised it up... Re lubed CV axles.. Put the goon squad steeliness back on, fixed the Cooling prob along with radiator flush. Then drove the crap out of it.
      A solution exists, and is left for the reader as an exercise.

      It cracks me up that your picture is considered "raised up" Car looks good man, glad to read it's running good to. Now come teach me to build an engine.

      What did I do to my ride: cleaned out the bug and began putting bits and pieces back together. Those door card clips are a pain.

      I finally got my suspension installed (pro-dampers + sportilnes), took me about 7 hours (first time), replaced sway bar links and ball joints as well.

      Very happy with the results, I love the handling on the curves, and acceleration seems faster now, little more stiffer though, oh and better look (no more 4x4 look).





      next mod?? I don't know yet, maybe brakes or chip.

      Since I am home again, it would only be right to pick up where i left off from the last disaster. Since I never got to finish the water pump job due to wrong serpentine belt, I picked up the correct size on my way home from the airport. Started off this morning by filling the car with coolant, test drive, pulling off the bumpers so I can begin work on them, installed a MOMO pedal set I had laying around from the Mk2, went to the junk yard and got the block breather, valve cover breather and the intake tube from an aba, installed all that and made a bracket to support the cone filter, but had to remove the washer fluid bottle for it to fit, went to tonys and pulled some things of his parts rabbit, key tumblers for the doors and rear hatch so now i can lock everything, and most importantly swapped out the hood. NO MORE HOOD PINS!!! Also downloaded megatune and got to watch the MS operate while I drive! Pics!

      Installed the new rear brakes on Jareds car, painted the drums black, all new springs, shoes, and cylinders. Feels so much better, but i found out the pass side brake line is kinked (not my doing) so its either JY or dealer for new rear hard lines.

      Lowered it, or rather adjusted the coilovers to compensate for settling. Front left corner came up 3/4 turn so i dont rub all the time with my *** in it, and took the rear down to 2 threads evening it out.

      So far this week- insured it, installed new Sunroof seal (thanks again Daveo), adjusted shift linkage to my liking, installed brake light switch and sorted some taillight bulbs. Also got rid of that atrocious orange manifold!
