    I haven't driven it for a couple of weeks and It's basically been sitting outside at work. Still haven't driven it since I had my friend drive it home for me for the long weekend... to be honest, I miss it so much!

    Also in following my friend home at night, I realized a) my right tail light is permanently on, and b) the turn signals are permanently on the dim setting unless being used. I suspect it has something to do with me disconnecting power to the trailer wiring converter that I installed. Will re-connect and check again.



    Also yeah damn Tyler, that is an impressive amount of work for just one weekend

    Alright I’ll post a few photos at lunch here. We kept the LSD out as it was seaping a bit from one of the output shafts. Nothing crazy but it is under warranty.


    Edit: What photos do you want? Here's one of my valve train. I am very happy, heh.

    ^ that's a clean engine.

    I'll echo what other's have said: that's a lot for a weekend. Well done.

    Yeah, that valvetrain is *chef's kiss*

    Not much by any means - just covered up some scrapes on the underside of my car from the road trip and a couple massive speedbumps. Was surprised at how bad the scrapes were - my car isn't even that low!







    This marks the first time I'm doing work on my own car, in my new garage. Tight, but manageable!



    Also fixed my rear lights. Re-powered the trailer converter and all is well.

    I inspected my rear suspension as I try to work out some wiggly-ness in the road behavior. Springs looked good. RTA bushings looked dry but I couldn't get any play there. Might be time for a rear suspension overhaul regardless. The car is just shy of 190k.

    Also adjusted my parking brake shoes, as the parking brake was essentially useless. Now it's working great, but it was a hell of a job with the 15mm spacers on the hubs.

    Spacers should be easy to remove
