-Home Depot Lip proved useless, I ran over a taller speedbump and the garage door seal got shredded. Ripped it off when I got home. :( Wasted time and money on that.. should have trusted my instincts. Always do quality mods, not el cheap ones other than PlastiDip ;D
-Work is really really overloaded with stuff to do, too much actually.

Raves:
-Went to a local Car scene (Ertefa) last night and seems like my car got some love amongst all the JDM and German cars on the lot. Waiting to see if I got some pics :D
-Left the scene last night at 10:30pm, a couple rice burners that came from there wanted to mess around. I resisted, and good thing I did! Immediately after they punched it after the light, a cop came from a side street and chased after them. Awesome.
-FCPEuro order came in this week, those Meyle HD Control arms are great! Aluminum with beefier bushings.


Wearing
-Addidas jacket, black cargos, sneakers

Since joining: that was funniest thing you've said. You get a gold star for the day.

Rants:
Lime rock sucked yesterday.
It's probably going to rain tomorrow. Wet carting is fun. Driving after wet carting is not.
Power steering pump sounds like a deaf kid playing a trumpet.
Clutch is slipping so bad.
Need an alignment... bad.
Definitely have a boost leak somewhere.
The turbo manifold gasket(s) is/are leaking.
Worried a coolant hose is going fail soon.
I have a little over a month to secure the rest of the driveline parts.
If this car ever gets completed, I deserve a nobel peace prize for patience and idiocy.

Raves:
Dude at the volvo parts counter looked up every individual part for my angle gear. He hooked it up and everything came to a price that every volvo parts seller would be ashamed of.
Miata passed inspection.
The 300 lb inspection worker couldn't fit in my car. That totally ruined his day.
Goodbye winter, hello summer tires.
Have today off, I'm going to have a few sodas and watch cops all afternoon. America, f*%# yeah!
