    Prepped everything today. All goes in tomorrow with new fender liners, oil plate, and I think that’s it.

    This might be one of the best done engine bays I've seen on this platform.

    Dropped my car off at the mechanic. I've got a weird popping noise coming from the rear end. Sounds like an end link but I had it on the hoist and don't notice anything, do I'm shamefully tapping out.

    Got my first start out of the way today. Now to find a tuner. Lost my base map so I can' even break it in.

    Today I wired in a starter kill switch to bypass the VTCS sensor on the CX-7 project to pass SMOG. Started as a birds nest, but ended up looking halfway decent. Hope they don’t spot that CS turbo ;-)

    Also, I polished up my lights a bit. I need to use more then rag to get everything out but I'm pretty happy with how they look after just a few minutes of work. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Finished my suspension work today. Glad I decided to go with new springs. :mad: Still need to get new sway bar bracket bolts just because the old ones are in horrible shape.

    Psh HPFP is like a 10 minute job. I think I have pulled mine like 7 times since I have owned the car...

    Rob at Hypnotic, he can probably get you sorted pretty quickly.

    How do car people tolerate living in California? I have never heard a good thing. Do they measure how much C02 you pollute into the atmosphere when you breathe? Come to MI, you'll love it here.

    If I were you, get the professionally wrapped in XPEL film. I will be going this route. I can't find ANYTHING to keep them from fogging. I have tried everything. I am going to resort to spending the $$ to get them wrapped and not have to worry about it for 10+ years.

    That's a strong no to MI. Been there done that. Miserable summers with humidity and miserable winters with humidity lol.

    I just wanted them to look less shitty. Been thinking of going with that crazy color change wrap though. Really rice it up.

    Haha my apologies. I was there for ~18 months. That is the only reason I'm around here. TerMINATOR was awesome. I just wasn't ready for lasting snow and Florida like summers.

    I used get all worked up about smog and what not, But not anymore. There is a pretty good chunk of California that does not require smog. The parts that do are the ones completely over populated. I mean we have 6 Lane highways (one direction) completely filled with cars though all hours of the day. If every car was a dirty as we want them to be, could you imagine our air quality?
