Well I was hoping for an update today... but my welder decided to be stuck on turbo wire speed. Damnit. Probably a transistor died in it. I need to make an electronics order anyways...

And I failed. But I did get some things in the mail Saturday/yesterday. And I actually sat down and figured out my next step to take.

Ok fine, Ill feed the sharks.

3/4-16 LH taps are spendy. Soooo, I have access to CNC Lathes...

I really hate the lower control arms I had made. Im not sure if I even had used moog ones (really just wanted moog balljoints). So I ordered in a new set to remake them. Got my plan of attack Monday after looking at many pictures of how S13 people mod their LCAs. So step 1 was to make new 3/4-16 LH weld bungs. Managed to write a program yesterday and busted it out fast on my breaks. Yay. So far that is all I have though.

I have also started buying all my Silicone hose pieces. Damn they are spendy for quality ones. Going with HPS since it seems to be the gold standard.

Little ones are all for the coolant pipes. The single large one in the picture is for the Throttle Body to cold side intercooler pipe.


This weekend I need to do the waterpump on BMW (super slow leak) and maybe the right rear wheel bearing, its starting to make noise.

I'm ready to watch this thing go together. Been off the road too long.
