Thanks! I've come to the realization that it will never be "done". There will always be something else I want to change. Got really depressed and had zero motivation to do anything to it a few years ago. Just couldn't see the end of the tunnel. Decided to just do what I could, when I could, and enjoy it in between. Been much happier with it since

Well, the local road course track that just opened this year had a black Friday sale... So I bought myself a little gift. Now to find some seats, install them , and check a few other things over before next spring :)

Santa was good to me this year! UMI front end brace. Also have another surprise in the works... It will be a couple of weeks before I can let the cat out of the bag though 😉

So my clutch has been slipping a little now and then. It was just a Napa stock clutch and I've beat it to death for several years now and I bought it from another member used. Really can't complain. I want to swap to a six speed but we're trying to tear our house down this year and rebuild so it won't be in the cards for a couple of years. Found a LUK stock replacement clutch on Rockauto for $86. Pretty good deal. Thought I'd check Amazon just to see. $46 with free shipping! Holy crap, score!

Going off grid for the weekend at my buddies camp in the Adirondacks. Had to stop by and pay the man doing a thing for me first though. Here's a sneak peak. :D
