Went on vacation for the past four days
4 hour trip to the cabin in the Adirondacks = Bonding time with my car
-Loving the alignment and balance, got up to 120 on a straight and barely knew it as far as any shaking or vibration
Stopped to top off at about the 2.5hr mark, CEL popped on shortly after, gotta read that code tomorrow at work

And snapped a pic. Loved how it looked, kinda menacing like "Yea Im guarding the front door for ya"

I'm equally as as Carver. That is, if you were on public roads.

Sure public roads but no traffic. Adirondack roads during the week = all alone.
Take it for what you will. I bet you never guys never do exactly the speed limit so whoa re you to talk. Every one else does a little over the speed limit .... a little over or a lot over; you are still breaking the law. Come criticize me when you actually treat the limit as a limit and 100% drive under it all the time

My car probably isn't capable of going over 100 anyway. Fastest I've went in my car? 84 in a 75 mph zone.

Read the code at work today ... Does this mean my 02 sensor is spaced too far?


Also the other day I plugged my FM transmitter (Yes people still use those) into my three outlet extension I did and ...pop... blown fuse. I had noticed a bit of fussiness with the thing leading up to this. Upon taking it apart I noticed the bar that sits at the bottom of the barrels had come loose and touched a bit of metal it shouldn't have causing a short. So a quick fiz later and it was repaired and reinforced to ensure this little problem wont happen again

Fixed:

What is wrong with people?? Someone obviously was jealous and owns no car. I hope that all gets fixed without much trouble.

Mirrors came. They are black and not paint matched so I have some DiNoc laying around and may put that on the caps



In other news. I had a short interview with the sheriff dept. yesterday. I have an agility test today and then a panel interview in a week.

So the stupid plate came disconnected behind the aux ports again. I think its the ambient heat in the car softening the glue then popping it loose when the tip of one of the plugs presses against it. So when in doubt use zip ties. That outta hold it. If not I may go back to square one and redesign the whole thing. Also glad that mess is unseen cuz its looking super ghetto lol.



Also got this today. I ordered it the other day cuz it was on rockauto as a manufacturer closeout price. I want to do the Z1 timing belt/water pump/thermostat kit in the spring and wasnt sure if they include this or not. But for just a few cents why the **** not make sure Ive got one just in case.
