Well, first off, a hearty HOO-RAH! to the USMC for graciously letting me use the auto hobby shop at MCAS Miramar and letting me store my car there while I go through my madness... I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
First, out with the old:
Albert's Rally Blue 98 in the background.
Two Subies in the dusk
And strip a few essential parts off of it that I'll need later, like, for instance, cylinder heads...
It looks so, naked!
To make way for the new (Hi Alan! Smile for the I Club!):
Pardon me, but would you have any Grey Poupon?
I'd like a burger with a side of fries please, no wait, make that a side of O Rings
Slugs and rings.
Here's a shot of the Crower rods:
Pretty damned tight fit in there.
Edit: For the bandwidth impaired, I didn't shrink these at all from their majestic 1600X1200XBillyunsandbillyuns of colors, so I made them links instead. If you're 56K'in, click a link, and go get some coffee.
