I did find the original SL springs in the back of the shed that are 30mm lower than where it sits currently.

I might throw them on this weekend for a look, at least now I can do jumps off speed humps and the tyres won't rub on the rear guards.

Lossing the exhaust is a possibility though...

Memes aside, it looks actually OK now.


Please do not ruin it to make it look good to people who really should be euthanized that we're all poking fun at.

Sincerely,
Earth.

As soon as WSID is open I'm gonna give it the belt, it's not really gonna need a burn out, but you know, I'm going to do one.

In other news my new front strut top bushes and bearings came in, could be a job for tomorrow arvo.

Now with a reversing camera connected to the headunit.

Also an alarm upgrade, lots of cool features, and my favorite bit....the main reason that I always get alarms.....it beeps when it locks and unlocks.

I really need to find a new project.

Found some old Prodigy, Bluetoothed it up and......f**k the stock speakers were rubbish.

Some new 6.5" Alpines have now found their way in.

All is well in the universe of bogan again.

A big plus is ABC classical radio will be pumping.

So, a weird thing happened.

 

A shop didn't want my money or try to rip me off.

I rang Oztrack and asked about a high stall, they said it isn't required with my 3.91 gears, even at the drags.

He said that if I'm not at WOT all the time it would make the car sluggish on the street and typically a noisy PITA.

When I asked what else I could spend some coin on, the only value for money modification that wouldn't kill the old slushbox was a wet 50-75 shot.......

We chatted for a while about his old LS1 VX, it ended up with basically the same mods as mine, but with some M/T's and a 75 shot, it layed down a 11.7 at 114 mph in full street trim.

I'm thinking that ain't to bad for about a $2k "investment in fun" for when WSID opens up again.

Bang for buck the nitrous is a great idea, plenty of bolt on kits.
If you go a bigger shot you can do a wiring mod to AFM/IAT sensor and use part of the IAT correction map for more fueling/timing control

So....instead of dropping more cash on the cruise ship, I got something else to play with.

 

A water pump.

I've always owned bikes, my issue is my body was having a hard time with my prefered style of bike, the sports bike.

I couldn't ride for more than 1/2 hour without my back, or wrists leaving the building.

So I went looking at, god forbid, cruisers.

M5 in peak hour, in a car, is a f**king carpark, I halve the time on a bike.

And whilst the Jap bikes are cheap and reliable, and easy to service, and the "smart" choice, they are covered in cheap plastic bits, chrome, and fake chrome, and sound like balls, even with an aftermarket exhaust (I love exhaust noise ❤️)

Euro bikes cost a fortune, and really look like a kids drawing.

Which left the Harley's to look at, Sporters, bottom of the barrel and are limited to 1200cc, Softtails, the "fake" ridgid frame doesn't do it for me, Touring are 2 wheeled cars full of electrics and armchairs (plus my short legs cannot reach the controls).

Dyna's, or what was the Dyna line, the Street Bob struck my fancy, it was minimalistic, had a low seat height, to match my low arse height, and 1690cc.

It was also discontinued in 2017, the original owner of this brought it, then basically kept it his garage for 4 years. It is only just really run in.

It will be alot more run in after I hit it with a stick this weekend.

The thing has enough torque to pull stumps, and will be perfect for runs from Holsworthy to Randwick.

In other news they have officially stopped production of the 86/BRZ, I was hoping Toyota would drop a in line 4 into it, but with the current zombie apocalypse that is very unlikely.

There is lots of click bait with the new 400Z that I have been following, which could be an option if that ever happens.

Meh, the zombie apocalypse has caused many changes, to many people, one of them is the balls to the wall, full on retard, ultra-bogan spec fad that I am going thru.....

I am having heaps of fun, which is the main thing.

I feel you there had to get rid of my street triple. Most guys I know have moved to Harley's for that reason as they ride nice and comfy for daily commute. 

With a set of pipes the neighbours will appreciate it every time you start it.
