      Yeah I used the board/ramps that I use to get into the garage. I guess I need to make separate ones now

      Not low enough
      Look at the picture of my car with my hand in front of my bumper. The reflection in the paint you can see the lip going into my garage. The driveway is sinking because of the stupid clay/limestone in Berks county. There is now a 2 1/2" lip

      You should just fab up some perm wooden rams for your garage

      Nice! Mine still has them They work great, especially in the front, but in the rear, theres no good place to put the stands after...

      I love coming home to find that the UPS man had left me a present while I was at work.


      Great news! The puck with the cut out for the pinch weld worked flawlessly! Thanks for the link Doug!


      Now for some sad shots
      DS inner boot that exploded

      And my oil pan which I have started to rub through. Thats right, rub. Not smash. If your low, then learn how to drive low!

      Yeah do it. You can keep track of everything more easily. And people will stop Pming you and inquiring about your mods

      Thanks! Chris is my go to guy for parts and service (if it requires skills past mine). In fact he's the one who will be adapting my throttle body after I reassemble it. Which car is yours?

      And that reminds me....I wanted to share this quote which has been stolen several times over and I believe originated as a facebook status
      "When you put your soul into a car it stops being a car and becomes a part of you. It speaks to you, you feel the car when you drive it and when it is put to rest at night you say good night to it. When you walk upon it in the morning you feel that car say good morning. This is what it means to build a car, to not just drive it because you have to but because you need to, because going to a therapist is for weak people. You take your problems out on the highway and you leave them there. Driving is your therapy. Wrenching is your cure, and this car is your greatest love."

      Why did you tape it? To prevent heat? (I think it doesn't work, once the cables are hot, the heat can't escape)

      That and to keep the insulation on the wires from deteriorating more. The tape is aluminum skinned and reflects heat.
