So I fixed my brake switch issue. So if you ever come across an issue where, when you press the brake pedal and your dash lights and parking lights come on. You probably installed the wrong bulb in your tail lights. So I fixed my issue by installing the proper bulb which is a dual filament and not single filient. Hopefully this will help people in the future.

Damn Nick, great work! Since I last checked in you've done quite a bit. Glad to see you sorted out the gas tank issues. It makes me worry about my own! The Momo steering wheels is super nice! Gotta love the other half for finally pitching in on the project! The AeroCatch latches came out really good. I've really been considering switching to those in place of the Spectre ones I have.

Great progress on the build, your machine shop does excellent work. That head looks factory new. Glad to see another F22 getting some love!

Thanks man! Ya I love my steering wheel and the aerocatch pins are awesome. They hold the hood perfectly, in fact I removed the hood latch system to reduce weight . But they also have locks on them which will help deter thieves.

well... interesting. From an electronics point of view that is messed up. I can see how a single filament always would allow power through but how it makes the other lights activate with the pedal pushed is funny. Glad to see you're still working on her.

I totally agree. When I read up on it, I thought that is to simple to be the problem and it has to be some wires shorting together.

Today I rebuilt the front right caliber with OEM parts since it was leaking. While I was under there, I found my right radius rod to be loose so I tightened it. I also finally put my Ingall Camber kit to use on the front. I pulled the UCA out about 3 degrees which should make the tires wear a lot better. But now the Driver side UCA is banging against the frame. Sometimes you just can't win.

If it becomes to much I will bring the UCA's in 1 degree and see if that helps, or I will simply grind the UCA down. I did notice that I need to replace the upper ball joints which is on my list.

Just so you guys know I'm still around. Made it to Pensacola safely. Now the unpacking begins. I am hoping to talk to blake at 850fabs to see if he can fab up a downpipe and dump tube. Then its back to saving up money and finally start putting it all together.


Im turning my focus on finishing up the suspension refresh. Most of the front is done, but I haven't touched the back.

It's been quite a while since you've posted a picture of the whole car. That thing is looking really nice!

Thanks Y'all! It still needs a lot of cosmetic work but its not to bad on the eyes.

So when I took the car off the ramp the front bumper got snagged a tad and pulled it off. It wasn't secured fully and no damage was done to it. Plus it is a throw away bumper so I'm not to worried about it.

Anyways, I decided to go ahead and install my bumper quick release and remove all the clips that hold the bumper in place. When I first saw a drift car many years ago have these and how easy it was for them to reconnect a charge pipe that blew, I thought to myself I had to have them for the convenience factor and if my front lip ever gets caught again the rubber ring will snap before the lip cracks (hopefully).

Anyways on to the pictures:
Driver side:


Passenger side (Don't mind the pin striping, I haven't gotten around to removing it all yet):


And just an engine shot. One day I will buy a mig welder and fill all those holes and make the bay look all pretty.
