    Its been fun guys, wouldn't trade it for anything.
    I still remember you keeping up with the Subaru and SRT4 up in Lime Creek.

    I hope to start working on this thing soon, this summer was just too lonely not having a fun car to drive.
    I actually have a spare H22 valve cover I want to clean up and hang on my wall as well. I've been contemplating on the color and I think I'm going to replicate the one in my car.

    Same here But theres more then enough room for everything. The block will be ready when you need it. Maybe I can bust my ass and get it torn down for you when you come up for the races next weekend, If so I will let you know in advanced.

    No new work done on the car it's self at the moment but, I have been working on getting the car put into my garage and getting all the tools and parts I need to start hitting it hard.

    Harbor freight had one of their "professional" level tool chest on sale for under $200 and a coupon for an additional $30 off so this bad boy only cost $160 out the door. I have to say the quality is on par or better than most craftsman tool chests that have been coming out lately. Great ball bearing draws with locks, this thing is solid. This is the 1st tool chest I have owned and just love having everything organized. Every tool I own was cleaned, rust treated if needed, and lubed up before being stored.



    I also found an amazing deal on craigslist for a 12 ton press for $80 that came with everything. This should save me a ton of money as I have new bearings, rotors, bushings & ball joints that need to be installed.


    Pics of the garage, there’s more space than it looks like, there’s at least 3-4 ft. behind the cb and were the tool chest is. I also had to get creative to save some space and hung my dash and front bumper from the ceiling with some chains I have sitting around.


    After doing all that over the past week, I started my motor tear down and re-build. Degreaser works wonders, I plan on blasting the block with a soft media to give it a clean satin metal finish to the block before it goes into the car. For the degreasing part I scraped off the heavier caked on crud, then sprayed only the block with a foaming de-greasing. After the spray down I wrapped the whole thing in plastic wrap and let it sit for 24hrs. The wrap stops the degreaser from evaporating away.

    More updates to come.
