AE86 Tech #86-27: P/S

Changing a power steering rack is always messy and very annoying.  Unfortunately, the power steering rack had finally bit the dust so another one was needed.  It was either that or start heading out to the gym for them friday night arm blasts.

A random stop at the City hall.  I got it's bad side.  Should have grabbed a center cap on the other side before I took the pic.

RIP Willie

A guy with a big heart and a passion racing.  It was sad to hear the passing of Big Willie Robinson on jalopnik..  When I first got a car, Will just opened Brotherhood raceway in Terminal Island. Back then I didn't have much interest in racing and fiddling with cars.  But after a few visits, it did a jump start in world of tweaking and racing.  Thanks Mr. Robinson for everything.

Breaking Honda brakes

Brake failure at almost 120mph is definitely not fun.  I wonder if it was a defect or Honda factory brakes just over burdened.

Eyes for 3

Time to change how we see things.
 A while back I picked up some used Cibie headlight housings.  During my short stint with Volvo's I found someone selling a set on the forum.  They were 5-3/4 and a perfect fit for Mr. 3.
