Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

I got this mounted tonight. It's never as smooth as you hope, but a longer bolt here and some lube there and it was in. It seems like a real solid piece.

Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

Last night I was able to get the y-pipe wrapped up. Not sure if it helped or not, but I figured it was free, and it couldn't hurt. Boy is that a messy job once you get it wet...

Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

Yesterday I installed the new Moog front wheel bearing / hub assemblies on both sides. The previous owner claimed to have installed new ones and made it seem like it was done recently. I'm sure this car sat outside, and being low to the ground doesn't help rust issues, but these things looked terrib...

Re: Tiresmoke Central, construction begins!

Shoot! You still have room for one more under the Cobalt. And there's even room to open the doors and get in all of them. You're good to go!

Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

Since the new hood was too shiny for the rest of the car, I decided to do something about it. On Tuesday I brought the car home so I could pick at it after work and over the weekend. I buffed the car out with pretty good success. I mean, it's shiny now and not the dull disaster it was. This car was ...

Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

Such are the times that craigslist is loosing the battle of old parts to Facebook Marketplace. There are hardly ANY Firebird parts on CL but there's a decent amount on FB. So I went looking early this week to see what was out there and found two guys parting out '93-'97 Red Firebirds. I was in searc...

Re: Chevelle Upgrades, 2019

The "break in" takes forever, because all you want to do is beat the crap out of it. It should hold up forever afterwards though.

Re: TRP 2019

It was a big class, and being the last Wed of the year, and the weather was really nice for the end of Sept, the place was packed with only an opportunity for two time runs. I won the first round with a -.04 redlight because the guy racing me had a -.05 red! We were almost a heads up run with my 12....

Re: LowKey AutoCross

I'm trying to get out of a stupid wedding that weekend. If there's no wedding, I'll be going probably with the S10. But back to the one we just did: It was awesome! This is really the first time I've been able to drive a car to it's limits, without worrying about cops, crashing, etc... I know I've s...
