This week...

Elections are over and we have spoken. Congratulations President- Elect Obama for a well fought campaign. In other news, just been doing alot of work on the car. Little by little it's all coming together.

Fitted the dash

Some trimming was required to coerce the pieces in place.

Some new changes in management was in order

Out: HKS F-Con unit, it's probably older than some of you. But it still works as long as you keep around 10 PSI. But it's so difficult to resist the dark side of boost.

In: AEM stand alone, it's what I install as a part time job. Why did it take me 3 years to finally do my own car?

New seating arrangements
Old: Cobra Kevlar Sebring seat. Yes this seat is pretty old too. Unfortunately, it doesn't comform to current FIA standards so it must be sent out to pasture. It's served me well for the past 8 years and will be missed.

In: Cobra Suzuka seat that complies with FIA regulations. Besides Recaro, I consider Cobra having seats that best fit me. When choosing your seat don't let your choices come down to brand name, cause who cares what kind of seat you have, if you're the one that's uncomfortable.
Added this cool battery box.

We now have life!
A couple of keystrokes we made fire!

All it takes is a leaky water pump to bring back down. Really dumb but these things happen when I reuse parts.

One thing really useful about a non running Volvo Wagon is that it makes for great storage when rebuilding the other car.
