|zx3_bmxrider||I drove to work and the clunking was still there. I'm guessing I need to use an impact? Anything else I'm doing wrong? Lol|
|Yesterday 01:10 PM|
The strut nut on the rear struts were loose and clunking. I tightened them with a wrench just now. They weren't horribly loose. I think its because I used a drill and forgot to hand tighten them... guess Ill see if they keep coming loose.
Here was the quality tester on Sunday: lol
Yes my brake lines are now loosely secured with zip ties...

Haha look at my build thread and you tell me. 2-3 pages from the back I think it is.
Wow that sounds like a pretty good crowd.

That would be awesome! I'd love to have a lot of wheels.
What's wrong with your crash bar?
As of right now, 14 are going and 13 are maybes.

Hmm I think everyone needs some of that.
Wheels wheels wheels that's all he thinks about lol. It's a shame they aren't cheap. Get a collection going and you will be able to hang them up in your future garage. "What do I feel like this month, let's go with these".
That is an easy list. Little tedious maybe but not bad by any means. I'm in the struggle of whether or not to buy a new crash bar...
Got a fair amount going to the first meet?

I honestly don't know whats next. Lol I need new fenders bad. If I'm really crazy about details, she'll need repainted again some day. Once shes not my daily, I really wanted to gut the back seat and hatch and lay down linoleum or wood flooring. I have been debating on going with some less aggressive wheels. Something 16x8 ET 25 to ET35. I have put some thought into maybe turbo-ing her some day too. But as far as realistic goals go... I'll be content with getting some new fenders and keeping up with maintenance. Here is the list hanging on my wall of what I need to do:
-Change fuel filter
-Fix broken reverse lights
-Bottle opener grill
-Install camber arms
-Check spark plugs
-Check motor mounts
-Check tranny fluid
-Check alternator harness
-Replace bolts on headlights
Most of this stuff is small and will only take a minute. I just wrote it down anyways so that way I won't forget during all the craziness. haha

Ahh that's right...the eBay special. I think I remember you buying them actually a long while back. Seems they held up pretty well for you at least. Can't beat the price either! I think you will come to enjoy the fancy shenanigans. Low is good.
I posted in the Xtreme Boredom thread. I am unsure if I am going to go or not. Finding time and having the funds available. If not this one I plan to hit 2-3 plus FF. Just started my "real life" job, well will start Monday. And maybe a vacation this summer if I get time off. It's 3rd shift, any tips on that? Do ya eat or just eat before then go to bed when you get home?
Full time would be great. Mainly the extra money though. I bet the focus would love the garage life. You'll figure it all out in good time. Search long and good, it will be worth it.
I would go ahead and just drive the escort around haha. Put in a water cooking system and then mount a fish tank to the hood lol.
So wheels are done. Suspension done. Paint is done. Body is done. What's next?
