I've been procrastinating on the dome light project. I ended up having to cut the attachment piece off since it wouldn't come out of the mold. I used some clay and need to add a little more then sand it all smooth then do the gel coat and fiberglass again. In other news though I did complete two...
I got my car back from the dealership but it's been sputtering. Come to find out, they put wrx spark plugs in it. I ordered the correct ones and am taking the car back tomorrow. Subaru has already been paid so I'm not paying for them to install the plugs, they didn't do it right the first time...
My first attempt to use body filler, then will sand and smooth it out then wax the shit out of it and attempt to make a gel coat mold, then will attempt to fiberglass it all together to make a solid dome light go pro mount :) If it fails, oh well, it's a cheap part to replace.
Lol so I did. Fixed it, 27 front and 24 rear.
I got aot of things today for my fiberglassing and molding. I am going to make a mold of my dome light and add a go pro mount piece into it so I can then connect an extension to have the go pro hang down to the roll bar mount location without the...

Ok, my pivot bushings and exhaust hangers arrived. Here is my bushing install and review:
As for the exhaust hangers, I could of swore I already had 15mm hangers, nope :/ They're huge! lol They make the tip sit so low I now have an exhaust leak at the downpipe.
I installed my new...
You'll waste alot of time and paint like I did if you attempt to do it with the wheels on the car. I finally got smart and needed to install new fender liners so I did it with them on my cart. I filled the negative space with the paint from the marker. I got it at Hobby Lobby but need a 2nd one...
I finally made it home and FINALLY got my car yesterday!! I already installed the couple of parts I got for Xmas.
Duracon Shift Knob Review
I love the way it fits my hands. I really like the hourglass shape. It sits a little higher so I'm getting used to that but it really...

Whiteline 24mm front swaybar
Whiteline front and...
Short story: I was doing well with autoX, got converted to speed density, spun a bearing, I rebuilt the engine, put 160 miles on it when my cam bolt sheared off causing my timing belt to come off and the car is at the dealership after hunting and fixing an oil leak 3 times. I found out I was...

My dad picked the car up for me since it took 3 weeks for the work. I had borrowed his Dodge Stealth tt (stock). He brought the car to me 2 days before event #2. He...
