Not to rub it in or anything either Fae, but the car is completely done now.

Found why my tach wasn't working! I literally tried everything to get it to work and then looked at 2k and 1E on the tach wires and the connector they ran to wasn't connected. I know, you think I'm a dumbass, but it wasn't my fault! The male connector had somehow got hidden behind one of the HVAC tubes, literally tucked as far back out of site as possible. Once I connected it and shorted ib- everything was hunky dory.

The bastard that has caused me so much headache. I used the old mangled harness to track where the wires went to, helped a lot.



and a quick video of it working. I hadn't aligned the gauges yet but they are all perfect now. May want to turn your volume down a bit, my phone microphone exploded.

That video is like getting an over-the-pants-handy from your highschool man crush and never getting laid.

I really planned on it but my Gopro was dead. I'm driving up to Cedar tonight so I'll make sure to get some recording going. Hard to get a good angle of both the instrument cluster and the center console gauges.

Famous last words. I'm not sure you're being honest with yourself.

You know, by completely done, I mean the bigger stuff, not fine tuning, I'm not dumb enough to think a car is completely done.

I guess Hornet demanding a video is all it takes! Took some quick videos before my card filled up. Needed to get back home quick since I had some frozen fruit from Costco becoming a congealed mass.

There was a ton of traffic so I couldn't get very many good(long) runs in, but I did manage to get a highway on-ramp.

Sorry if the video position is odd, I just didn't have a very good mounting spot for the Gopro. Also sound was a little too muffled. I guess I used too much foam.

You slipping the clutch or burning rubber? Looks fast and smooth.

You need to build one of those combo iPod/iPhone/GPS mounts like I have. Takes great vid with a nice speed and G overlay. Then you'll lose your license for sure.

Yes. Also, it is amazing how much slower it looks on video.

I really do. Honestly, it would be fine if I had a 6" extension to pull the camera down past the rear view while still having L.O.S. on the gauges.

Having the GoPro mounted made me nervous every time I passed a cop. Not to mention 5 seconds after the freeway on-ramp pull, right as I slowed down, a cop headed the opposite way went by. Almost voided my bowels I got so lucky.

Also, I know at some point I'll probably need to replace the Unicorn Fairy Dust Coilovers but I dread the day I do. They ride so so smooth. Almost better than my VW is some areas. Really has opened my eyes to what a revalved tuned damper can do. They may be a touch soft for track duty, but seeing as it won't dip under 100 anytime soon...I don't think it is on the immediate futures agenda.

I'm mostly kidding. They are the SD revalved Bilsteins everyone keeps saying are so "rare". Probably not that special but I like ehm.

Vlad I'm trying to find a stretch of road I can really let it stretch its legs, but I don't want to do it anywhere close to people/houses/cars. Still looking for a good spot.
