    Brett said he'd already drank enough that week. The friend he was visiting was sans-wife for the week so they just drank all week.

    A little update. Just a few pics of my ratty engine bay etc.



    Needs more lowering/new suspension




    The corner of shame. Ziptied ground connection (it's been problem free since july, lol) and powerade coolant overflow (the lid actually fits well)

    Your + battery connection makes baby jesus scared..

    Move the factory battery terminal w/fusible links over there man.. or at least put a big manly fuse @ the battery or somethin.. one little short on the drivers side is gonna make that 6' of wire glow like a mofo while it starts your car on fire..

    Glad to see it runnin, otherwise tho

    Looks like my buddy ain't movin from Kanata any time soon.. so I'll be back out in the spring I expect..

    The factory battery terminal didn't have any fussible links on it. It's not a corolla. I probably should put a big fuse in by the battery but the + connection isn't nearly as sketchy as it looks. under all that tape there's a big rubber insulator around the positive connections which are all bolted together and located there pretty well.

    The Negative is definitely as sketchy as it looks, but it's also awesome.

    Definitely. Let us know when you'll be in town. The Ottawa crew is pretty much TTC and myself, with the odd appearances by VWIII, SimonB and a couple others. But we can usually make time to hang out with fellow DKers when they're around.

    Thanks. I get the most weird looks when I pass people on the highway at full boost like they're standing still and they get an earful of my open wastegate dump, and see an old geezer car fly by them. The exhaust is pretty quiet most of the time. When the wastegate opens up it's probably around 130db though.

    I haven't really decided yet. I have my 300ZX brake setup almost ready to install, and it'll work with the current 4 bolt setup. I'm also not really sure what I'm going to do for suspension yet. I don't want to drop it a ton, just enough to tuck tread. I don't really want to spend 2k+ on coilovers either so I'm leaning towards some koni yellows, ground control sleeves and lowering springs in the rear. Supposedly 350Z rear lowering springs work. Some poly bushings, and maybe a few other goodies.

    I drove home from my girlfriend's place this morning and when I got out of the car I heard a hissing. I thought it might just be some water sizzling off my downpipe, but nope....



    So I go to throw my spare on and holy crap, it's never been out of the car, and it's factory new. (no it's not on the ground with one lug holding it on)



    And the DOT date stamp... (12th week of 1985) can you say tread separation.
