      it's neat how you routed the spark plug wires through the slot of the valve cover where the throttle cable used to go.

      nothing yet. the whole situation makes me angry and im growing ever more impatient. but reality is that yet another deadline fell through. its whatever. itll be handled eventually. i just hope he makes the whole situation right with me. im not gonna get all nasty and bash him online. he should feel bad enough about it.

      but hes at wcf this week with all the big boys and their 8 second toys.... so even less is to be expected.

      im actually driving to pennsylvania to store the car with my family for the next several years. it would be nice if i could grab it while im there.

      So heres a long over due update... I'm in Korea again, headed to Italy next year. As of now i wont have the car when i go to italy, as it needs to be running in order for the govt. to ship it there.

      Heres a bunch of the pics/work from the last few years.

      Moving from SC to New mexico in 2014.


      In new mexico then... started on the brakes...which went no where.


      I bought this and sold my prelude. Best decision ever. & i stopped careing about the corrado unfortunately.


      Got even more side tracked when i bought another bike.


      Wife allowed me to take over the garage. Which made it able for me to spread out and save a lot of time not having to clean up all my **** constantly.


      Enjoying the New mexico scenery in the racevan





      Always seemed to have to juggle multiple projects at once. To try and make headway on multiple NEED TO DO issues. My haggard ass bike needed a lot of attention to the terrible welds someone previously attempted. Welds with close to no actual penetration. On the custom tank mounts, and the semi-rigid rear arm. Then i got to knock out some more welding on the C's radiator mounts and intercooler.


      After almost 2 years i finally decided to finish upgrading the brakes to the mk4 aluminum rear calipers, new rear disc's, rear wheel bearings and lines.










      Took care of the clearance issue with the exhaust on the rear beam.





      Finished the battery relocation, fuel pump wiring, and ex. battery posts.



      Rear strut brace install. with some slight trimming to keep the speaker mount tabs.




      42Draft Design wheel adapters for 5x100-114.3 and the SSR decolte gp-0's ill be using someday.




      Bought this Corrado RS strut bar a while back from Krazee. Finally got around to modifying trimming the **** off the strut towers and drilling holes so it would fit.



      turned a catch can into a power steering reservoir


      finished the oil drain line plumbing



      Vacuum and fuel lines are all good.









      Rewrapped a lot of wiring with Painless wiring's milspec style wrap.





      Got rid of the 4" turbo inlet pipe and giant filter and went with a low profile on turbo filter. Def frees up a lot of space.







      Wasnt gonna use the mishimoto oil cooler, but went ahead and threw it in there. Had to ditch the mishimoto sandwich plate. Doesnt work with the VR block. MOCAL has a sandwich plate that i needed to get this working. You can kinda see it here.








      Didnt want to cut into the upper rad support but it was inevitable with how high the cooler had to sit. Doesnt actually look too bad to me.




      How its sitting as of now in storage.




      spoonfed goodies


      Eventually ill figure out something with the mismatched interior, but for now itll do.








      Preparing for the drive back across the states to Pennsylvania to store the cars for the next year for the SS and the next 4-5 years for the corrado. while i went to korea and italy.






      All the fluids for initial fill, and break in of the motor.


      My pops seeing the car for the first time ever....just kinda bewildered that i did something like this. He always had my back when i was younger and just learning how to work on cars. And since i joined the military we dont exactly see eachother that much. So it was great to see him excitedly checking it out.


      Then all wrapped up for the next 3-4 years with her own spot.






      Random shots.
