eh, fraid not really.

I didn't do much over the winter cause it was too damn cold. Now that the weather is getting better, I'll pull the spare engine out and finally start building it up/mocking things up. I'm also still aquiring parts for the coilover conversion. I've got the spindles, wheelbearings, lower control arms, ball joints, and series 2 brake hardware. Just need to pull the trigger on the coilover part themselves. The money I keep setting aside for getting them just seems to get sucked to other things. At this point I've saved and spent on other things enough for 5 sets of coilovers. Its balls really.

Also the plan was to take the 95 off the road for most of this summer to do the major work. Now that I'm driving it again, I'm not sure if I want to. The transmission is slipping a good amount, and based on the frequency that I need to empty the PCV catch can there is a good amount of blow-by. Which isn't too suprising since its been running 11PSI of boost for getting on 5 years now. It needs a break and some R&R, but its just so much fun to drive! Plus,if I take it off the road then I'll have to bus into work, since the wife needs the other car. I'm thinking of picking up a motorcycle in a few months, then getting the riv off the road so I can finally get all this stuff done.

Look forward to some cool updates and things this summer though. I've been going into machine shop withdrawal all winter, so its time for shit to happen.
