Well since the engins is now out, I was able to mock up all the brake lines. I will make the real ones soon. To anyone who is thinking about doing this, try to pick up some single strand wire, it bends great, you can shape it to whatever, and its close to the same diameter as brake lines.
Been driving 120 miles about 3 times a week for a while now, working on Strictly Pleasure's Top Secret Project. Messed up my jack getting the car back on the ground, but oh wells.
And the project, hellamadtyterusted 240.
And yes, the front bumper is a finger width off the ground, and yes, that curb right next to the car is his driveway entrance.

So this past weekend I decided to take a little trip with my two best friends. Well, actually I needed co-drivers because I'm selfish . Anyways, we made the trip from Chicago to D.C. to Chicago in 25 hours. On the way back I was very sub-23" gtf, I would guess 22.5, and no skid plate lol. Here's some pics:
Pennsylvania at midnight
Wicked tunnel, must have been at least a mile long
My buddies first stick shift
Pennsylvania Sunrise in mountain-ish area
Found this picture on my camera when I went through the pictures. Check out that side burn [cool]
And of course, what's a good road trip without a semi half burnt??
I know those roads very well. That's probably the sommerset tunnel you went through. Did you get off of 76 in Breezewood? That place has like every fat food restaurant ever, and it's got a weird feeling to it.
In breezewood/ nearby there are 3 abandoned tunnels that used to be part of the turnpike. The one is leased by a race team who tests their NASCAR car there for coast down...
Anyways hope you enjoyed your trip! I may be coming out to chicago by the end of the summer with my car. My uncle lives in Western Springs, is that close to you at all?
Pretty sure we got off at breezewood, We got off the turnpike, drove on a regular street for one block, and got onto whatev its called highway.
Western Springs is very close to me actually, 15-20 minutes away, have you ever been? The town to the west is the richest area in Chicagoland (hinsdale).
Put them in and took em for a spin tonight. OH. MY. GOD. These combined with my coilovers have made my car an incredible joy to drive. I only have one complaint, and that's that they are not black. But it's not enough to make me pull them out.
Old Seat Removal, Interior cleaning, and sport seat install took about 1/2 hour.
Undid a mod Wednesday, this little blue X has been on my bumper since last September.
Back when I had first thrown it on, car wasn't even street ready back then.
Decided it needed it was time.......
I'm so boring lol
