    got depressed when I saw my car with the winter wheels on it and did a u-turn back into my house and bought a set of wheels and tires for next spring...

    I installed my front mount. Took it for a drive. Blew a coupler. After some road side repairs I tried again only to blow another coupler. Thus I began the cursing and swearing. After a good yelling and some more roadside repairs it decided to stop blowing couplers off. YAY!

    went outside, poured coolant from overflow back into the radiator.. drove it to get gas, did one pull, ran a couple errands, got home, 2 hours later poured my full coolant overflow tank back into the car and ran another errand.

    You know that the car automatically sucks the coolant from the overflow bottle when it needs it right? You shouldn't have to manually dump it in there...

    Walked outside, popped hood, checked oil level, oil level good (after 3 years combatting a leaking oil pan finally), cranked up, listened to idle cause it makes my day (hks 264,272), filled up with gas, drove to campus. Good day for my DSM w00t

    Bolted up my new power steering pump, but couldn't find the proper sized nut for the metal hose thing that connects to the pump. Tried M10 x 1.50 and M12 x 1.75 and both didn't fit! Made like 8 trips to the store until I finally gave up.

    Okay, we don't need to know you 'love' your car. :p

    I went outside and looked at my car, grinning cause I know of the hard UIP i'm getting tonight, looked at the parts car and wondered how I'm gonna get parts off of it. Then went inside cause it was raining.

    Ah sad day :(

    I went outside this morning all happy to drive her then was sad when I saw how dirty she is and how I couldn't find the car wash I want to take her to yesterday. But then was happy when I came home and looked at the new hard intercooler piping and GReddy RS she will get on her soon.

    1. Replaced my kinked/brittle nylon boost gauge line with rubber vacuum hose, slid the existing good portion of said nylon line into the vacuum hose, used epoxy, a zip tie, and called it good.

    2. Getting fed up of my 1g BOV w/DGM leaking @ over 20psi. Don't know if the mod was done wrong or WTF. Probably putting a different BOV on.

    3. Detailed the car. She looks as if she rolled off the showroom floor.

    4. Buddy of mine decided he was going to be a dumbass (he's not the sharpest tool in the shed, elevator doesn't go to the top floor, etc) and step on my side skirt as he was getting out and bust half of the clips and "U" skirt clips off. FML

    Drove out to the base today, met up with a new DSMer for the first time. We BSed for a while, I drove her home it started pouring. I pulled her out went to the store, did an AWD burnout in the rain (Stock T25) car doesn't make enough power to do it otherwise, which will change. Looked online half the day. Im going to be doing more interior restoration soon. Its looking really good now, but I want everything new. Found these frickin sweet ass floor mats for $45, I might get black and gray
