    Post Day 3336 "It's turned a bit crazy"

    See original post here

    Operation X

    I think I’ve officially gotten to the “mad scientist” crazy with my ideas. I’ve integrated a tablet into the dash, automated the door locks and ignition, and plan to install a small computer or something that I can code to for custom stuff. But now I’m flirting with one now that effects the drive-ability of the car. (Still safe just different) Its a normal problem but my solution is not. I wouldn’t spoil anything just yet but it does effect the rear glass. You can make a few assumptions based on that. I had to strip the GoPro mounts and the V6FB logo(again). This is more of an experiment. This week I should be able to post a full explanation with photos.

    Expect it to be WTF crazy level. Half of me is scratching my head asking why am I doing this?

    ...and the other half is scratching somewhere else.

    Post Day 3414 "Time to get back at it"

    See original post here
    Operation X
    Well it’s been 8 months of working on a house but it’s done. It’s time to get back to all the projects I left unfinished. That includes OperationX. There are several things I’ve done during this 8 months that just haven’t been posted except little hints and vague references. I’m sorry for not getting everything posted. I’ll be catching up on the Car and get back to rolling on posts as well.
    The Garage is a complete mess but its pretty much ready for me to do what ever I want inside. I’ll be posting a little bit of that but only if its relates to the car. Overall I’m pretty stoked about the garage. But I still haven’t been able to park in it yet, which is a bummer. I also haven’t been taking good care of the car either. It’s way over due on an oil change and probably several other things as well as a good wash. You can tell in this photo just how filthy it got. Its rained since so the layer of dust is gone but the filth just sticks to it.
    I finally can get back to business as usual. I have lots of big tasks on going. The car is literally in pieces. I’ve been driving it with half a dash since the first of the year. None of my new gauges are hooked up. All my electronics are disabled. I was in the middle of redoing all my wiring and the house happened. So, I’ll be very happy to get my push button start, autolock and unlock, and the gauges back. Using keys are just boring now lol. I even managed to ditch the keys on the house with some nifty coded deadbolts. I’m liking it.

    Post Day 3416 "300,000 Mile Club"

    See original post here
    Yesterday I was on a 200 mile trip and noticed that I would pass my 300,000 mile mark during the trip. I would definitely have missed it if it had happened during my daily drive. About 10 miles from 300k, I started to get nervous that I would miss it driving on the highway. LOL
    Not much is left from the original car but the chassis itself. It sits on all new or used replacements. even the motor has 100,000 less miles. But the number means the same to me. Since 2003 I’ve put 140,000 of those miles on this car myself and loved every minute of it. I look forward to the Half-a-Million club. At my current pace of 10k per year it will be 2040 before I get there lol

    Post Day 3427 "Still in the gravel"

    See original post here
    More maintenance required before I can even pull into the garage. Yet another repair in the gravel. This wasn’t super difficult or long to fix. It’s just that I have a garage to do this stuff on smooth comfortable concrete and I’m still stuck in the gravel lol.
    I’m afraid its going to be a minute before I can bring in some more dirt and gravel to raise the drive to the garage to pull in anyway. I have to move the metal carport and build a french drain for when I raise the drive it doesn’t try to go through the garage to get away. So, this work in the gravel may still be the case even after the first of the year. By the time I get into the garage I wont have anything regular to fix so maybe that will line me to to start the SC build straight away. ūüėÄ
    Anyway, I heard some metal on metal in the rear brakes. I knew what was up. these are the same pads I’ve been rocking since I swapped to this rear end. They weren’t new then either lol.
    I’ll have to get these rotors turned at some point too.
    I also found my first casualty from the construction zone. Gotta get that fixed too. :-\
    And always torque to spec lol
