yah as long as i get my usual parking spot datz all dat matters really. i’m at work at least 1.5 to 2 hrs early anyways trying to cram everything in da 9-10hrs i’m at da office. which is nothing compared to when i’m traveling which can become a very long day.

Nice! Must be parts day.

I got the 034 Motorsports dogbone thingy for the Golf AND the Hondata FlashPro for the Fit. Not off to a great start with the FlashPro, but I'll mess with it more tonight. It was DOA out of the box and I had to call Hondata so they could push a firmware update. They were excellent on the phone. Now the software has lost all of the built in calibrations. Who knows why? I had to get back to work so I'll mess with it later while on a laptop in the car.

oh yah, after spraying dat yellowjacket bee hive 2-3 weekends ago, ive had zero bee crap on my WRX. also ever since i made dat magnetic owl eyes thingie earlier this spring, not one bird crap on my ride! very cool. even da GK, aka bird toilet since parked next to a small tree, no bird crappage. extremely effective.

kind of a hassle to have to put it on each time and remove it before taking da car out but well worth it. birds are dumb but not faktarded like dem losers holding up traffic during da am/pm commute or da pos forgetting da parking structure gate keycard, so i place the thing a little differently each time on da car.

alright pulling out my STI for some motoring fun dis am followed by cleaning da WRX interior and glass, then installing the spats on my Golf-R. have to run a few errands today so will pass on washing da WRX as i don’t want tire dressing on da panels. i like to let da sidewalls dry overnight before driving

as for da AP, i need to figure out a day i can take off as i need to be home to sign for da package.. might be a while as i am completely booked dis month with work and next month is filling up real fast.


have a good saturday everyone!

nnnn, STI was a blast to drive as expected, cleaned da front end when i got home. also cleaned da WRX's inside glass. decided to clean the interior later or tomorrow when i wash da car since i need to take the car out dis pm for a couple of hours anyway.

installed the spats on my Golf-R. very easy to do as there was plenty of access to da bottom of the rear bumper. used 2 bolts each side dat came with the kit along with a piece of VHB. thing is not going anywhere. looks good, perfect fitment. real happy with how it turned out.

so i asked if my wife could babysit UPS next week.. nope. she's in and out throughout da day. craps. if it was just the AP i could have it shipped to my work, but not a big box with intake. lol hummmmm...

Put the dogbone in the Golf. Kenchan, did you replace or re-use the factory bolt? I re-used ours, but I saw an online tutorial that said to replace the bolt. Looked fine to me. Torqued it to 94 ft/lbs.

Glad I have a breaker bar. That sucker was pretty tight.

alright on da menu today.. pulling out my STI for a nice am drive in a bit, QD afterwards, wash WRX, and do some house chores. relax rest of day.

might even do a waterless wash on da WRX if it’s cloudy as it’s going to rain later in da week. waterless is far easier to do on a cleanish car.


have a good sunday everyone!
