    24oz is not enough to cool ours right, they only allow -/+1 oz to work the system properly

    Definitely money and time well spent, especially this summer.

    its cooling quite well. I'm going to check the pressures again to see if they are up or down. but i've been running it every day and it doesn't hesitate at all to cool.

    well this past weekend I made the decision to ditch the aftermarket seats and go back to factory. And so far I hate them mainly because the lack vinyl. sliding in the seat is much more comfortable than having to scoot into the cloth seat. So atm the cloth is going to stay until i mess around with the aftermarket seats and make them more comfortable. the main problem is the bottom bolsters on the exit side of the car is just way too tall. i'm going to try and modify the seat to reduce that and mount them to the stock rails because they mount to the car so much better than metal plates.



    Car seats make nice chairs.



    had to make some repairs on thte factory seats



    extra cushion that I added to try and fix the foam. but the wire basket that holds the foam is tearing away.







    Added supporting wire



    Added vinyl to try and keep the foam from tearing more



    now to recover the seats





    Maybe I can find some graphite covers for the factory seats instead of the cloth.

    also the weekend I had a mishaps

    i went down a road that I said I would never go down again in my camaro because I bottomed out the car the last time i came down it. they had fixed the sink in the road so since i was close I wanted to stop by a friends house. I had to creep along and dodge all kinds of stuff. I wasn't successful. I nailed a hole with a super large lip and It pretty much destroyed my shock assembly.

    So the work begins.



    Turns out that my shock pulled right out of the mount



    Makes it a challege to get the shock out because It under tension because the shock isn't holding the spring any more



    the damage



    sorta messed up the end but the nut came off without destroying it.



    I then found the problem. My insulator was trashed. you are supposed to tighten this down with the shock nut. but as you can see... the hole is now larger than the nut

    i will hopefully get it back together tonight. I've got 2 replacement agx shocks for the front just incase there was damage beyond repair. so i'll probably replace them both. and make sure the driver side doesn't have the same problem. I was luck and the shock mount was under warranty on that side. the other side is still stock. and having to buy new mounts is expensive 80 buck each... for rubber

    Its back together. I had to wait a day for the part to arrive. I'll be doing the same thing to the other side just in case that plate is beginning to rust as well. Not to mention i got another brand new shock to put in


    Fresh! It may be placebo but it feels like its a better ride.

    Ah, Frank's garage. We must hook up for a wrench day some time. Let's paint the Toyota.
