Getting the Cobb heatshield on was the best part. Worst part was trying to get the two rusty nuts off to put the up-pipe bracket on!

Yesterday installed struts on 1 car, rotors pads and stainless lines on another car. Today did a timing belt on yet another car. 1 more pin added to the collection.

Tried to reattach my rear view mirror after it fell off my 2013 WRX! The other weird thing is that my husband's fell off his 2012 STI yesterday... We're taking them in tomorrow since we couldn't get them to stay put. Anyone else having these issues? It must have something to do with the 10+ consecutive days off triple digit temperatures here in Dallas?

He has 2005 5-speed so I've been advising him to go easy on the power mods. Probably going to be a 20G.

Very true. I just picked up a blouch 20xt for a steal. I can't wait to get it on. That sounds like it will be a fun set up!

Took the rear mudflaps off. I'll take the fronts off later when I feel more motivated, then clean them all up

Default More like what did someone else do to your car today

Was shopping at Homedepot and came out to this little gem.



Of course there was no note. I parked away from the other cars to help prevent this......


I've actually been able to buff a lot of it out and get the bulge out with a heat gun. Going to get it estimated tom, very gey.

Sorry to hear someone scraped your car.

Wow, that image took a long time to load. Might I suggest using an image uploader like Imgur?

Put this in your post instead:

Yes. I hate the black ones on a blue car. I want them to look as if they were oem.
