Fairest of them all.

These valve covers are the prettiest ones I have ever seen.

Easier said than done

Oceans 86 owner requested the return to service of it's power steering system.  Previously, it was decommissioned and the lines looped to prevent dirt contimation in the event of possible reactivation.  Now that time has finally arrived.  But lucky me, it wouldn't be a typical straight forward install.

A strange Acura

Rear drive Acura Integra with a bit of a twist.  It's like WTH or WOW.  I'll let you people decide.

Decreasing radius

Sometimes the tighter bends can only be built by hand.  Or at in my case a chop saw and welder.

Rear Suspension RX7

Came across an interesting rear suspension setup on a 1st gen. Mazda RX7.  Looks really cool, I may try this when I get bored.

Knock sensor

Now that holiday's are over, it's about time I get back to wrenching ol' corolla.  But the deep blue sea is still on the driveway, I need to start cracking before I can start my own stuff.  Continuing my poking and prodding of blue's insides.  I see it's a hodge podge of 4A variations to make a whole, I needed to make some corrections.

Texas Holiday '11

This Christmas I made a trip to visit relatives in Houston, Texas.  It's been a very long time since I been to the lone star state.  I have passed by here a few times, but never stopped to see how much has changed.  Growing up in  a military family, we moved around the country numerous times.  One of our stops was Corpus Christi, Texas in the early 80's.  Reagan was elected president and it was all about Cowboys football.

Never try and beat on your girl, cause you never know what's going to happen.
