Finish the deck.

Then I have to decide which car gets work. I'm thinking maybe swap tires on the blue Miata, drop the racer down a bit (do I put on the heavy spring set?) and maybe pull the head on my poor original car.

Get my Yugo running again, so I can drive it home and put my "dependable" car back in working order (brake lines) and start driving it for winter.

I'm going to cut the front half off of the Spitfire and begin fabricating the new front chassis rails/suspension.

Oh, and finish my sheet metal brake.

Still troubleshooting intermittent rough running problems. Crank sensor helped, maybe I've got a vacuum leak somewhere. Something tells me that I'm chasing multiple causes. Maybe it's because it says "1992" on the title.

Clean garage.

Fix wiper switch on wifes RX7/Lemons car.

Clean out truck for the first time since I have owned it (bought it new in 2008). It's gross.

Maybe... yank motor out of bad body RX7 and put in good body RX7.

Another job I've been putting off is reinstalling the plow mount back on the truck. It had to come off for a transmission flush. I know that if I don't get this thing back on now, I'll end up doing it at 5 am in the snow.

Re-torque everything on the V6 MR2 after it's first 500mi. Seafoam it and switch to synthetic. Track down a rattle, put the carpet back in the trunk, etc.

Nothing. She's staying at home while I sit at a cabin in WV and drink beer all weekend. Now I need to decide what vehicle to take to said cabin. The daily Mazda or Pappy's F-150...

Need to adjust the Fays2 Watt's link in my Mustang (again). It's making some noises I'm not too comfortable with. Besides that I'm also going out to look at some winter beaters. I just hope it stops raining so I'm not miserable doing either.

You know you're on Grassroots when someone says something about their "spare Yugo".

And it is perfectly ok to boast about the fact that you showed a stranger your Wankel.

Where to begin?

  • get light pods wired on the rally car
  • clean garage that is a disaster with appx a gillion (ok, maybe 30) rims and tires in it
  • sell more rally tires
  • start packing tools for PFR
  • peel terrible decals last driver put on the rallycar off
  • prepare to install air bag kit on the pickmeup
  • remove hood to take to vinyl cutter for new hood graphic
  • clean inside of truck
  • clean inside of rallycar
  • get last minute PIAA 80 Racing lamps ordered/shipped

I'm thinking its another past midnight day (which has been going on for the past week).

Autocross on Sunday. First time in 6 months I won't have to seriously worry about heat stroke, so that's nice. Have to get my drivers liscense renewed tomorrow which should theoretically be an hour in line and 5 minutes at the counter. Theoretically. If I have time I should figure out how much to adjust a tie rod to go from slight toe in to slight toe out for autocross so I can do it quick like before the event. Should mow the lawn too, but it's growing slower as the days get shorter. I can probably put it off for a week.

Sadly, not much. Maybe I'll see if I can finally get my alignment straightened out. Living in an apartment complex where I can't work on cars, driving a new car that doesn't need much, and having more important things than upgrades to spend money on mean not much happens with my cars lately.

Nothing.

I'm cleaning up the disaster in the shop left over from lemons prep.

Then I'm going to go take a careful look at a Volvo 1800es and probably haul it home so the shop will look like a disaster again.

Sunday I think the boat is going in the water for a cruise. Hopefully it will go the entire 3 hours.

Maybe wander around the junkyard Saturday and see if I find anything worthwhile. Probably detail the Miata at least one day, it's long overdue.

That's about it
