...and it looks like the Rival S in 225 is sold out until mid-January. Hm. I guess I'd better hope my regular Rivals last til then!

Shouldn't you be the one answering that question? I already voted.

Why not both?

Mount them rainbows to rainbows, though.

How did those exhaust heat shields work out? Is it holding up on the street? I want to do some heat shielding like that to reduce transmission temps, but also reduce tunnel temps on the inside of the car.

929 1" bore master cylinder purchased. $73 on rockauto.

Line lock arrived.

Waiting on monk for the ABS so I can get that mounted and figure out where to mount my FPR.

Then fuel system upgrade.

Junkyard 9" R/P for my truck are ****. Rusted, pitted, etc. So now I'm ordering new bearings and starting from scratch with my old ring and pinion and the new case.

Ok I think I finally found a bandsaw. Guy said he would hold it, hailey is picking it up in seattle later this week. That lets me finish my exhaust and intake. I need to pick a shitty muffler, and order a 180* pipe.

I also ordered a sheet of much thicker aluminum to redo the headlight lids.

Someone plz buy my brake pads so i have more money.

Picked up this snapon torque wrench. Not sure if I like it yet, needle doesn't move that smoothly.



Carrier back in the case and torqued down



Threw together this HF cart. I really like it



We've been looking for a dog lately. First we found a pair of dogs that were really sweet, but had too many medical conditions for us to handles.

Then we found this perfect dog. 8 year old pointer, sweet, somewhat calm.



But the rescue that had him turns out to be ridiculously strict, require a fenced yard around the door. No chance of that so we had to turn him down. Hailey was pretty damn butthurt about it.

Still hunting.
