For the
Operation and
Running of our


So i figure everyone else with an addiction has a support group, why not us.

The premise is that we all have these great mods that have been in our sig since we joined, and only a few of us have accually followed through. so i'm proposing that we put our ideas out for the public to see with a reasonable deadline. that way you all can bug me in june after i said i'd get my 88 running again.

Here is my list....

Right blinker electrical issue needs fixed, wiper not returning to home, replace blower motor resistor, dome light-make work, install GL rear cargo light, rewire reverse lights, repair rear defogger

R/R timing belts, intall, put some miles on the car, hook up GL gauges, convert to MS+S, replace leaking valve cover seals

Bleed brakes, replace pads and rotors, new custom exhaust from head to tailpipe, convert rear springs to accord, paint wheels matte black

Rewire lights and fan so that it dosn't look like a bees nest.

other car, 1980
Stop coolant leak, get tach working, fix oil leaks, install RX tranny with 1.59 low range.

I'd like this all done by June 1st, so that i can enter the local car show, woodward dream cruise, perhaps you've heard of it, with two running off road subarus, streched goal is August 15, so that its done before my friends birth day, which is the only day i let anyone else drive my subaru.

Now the only way this will work is if everyone else mentions what there doing, if you got secrets, keep them secret, this is for general stuff or anything you don't mind sharing. knowing that you all know my plans will help motivate me to get-R-done.

Well, whats in my signature is what is done. I have ALOT of toys in the garage for both cars.

Things for the RX that have yet to be installed:
Saab 900 Intercooler
Saab 900 B.P.V

Things for my WAgon that were waiting installation:
(3) Electric Air Pumps, wired and plumbed to run a single line to an air tank.

I have set no deadlines, because anyone who knows me well... knows im a huge procrastinator. I'd like to have my Intercooler installed before the WCSS, but if I end up getting another wagon I will want to have a new lifted rig for the Show... if I keep up the pace im at now, i will have neither done :lol:

hehe, adiction is right. just 2 months ago i had a thread called something like "mostly finished hatch" i thought i was gonna stop at the efi/h6, but then i built a lift for it, and got new tires, and, and built another bumper, installed stereo, and several gauges, all kinds of other crap.

i make a point to not put anything in my signatures, or avitars that i havent actualy installed on the car. i mean hell, i have two T3s sitting right next to me, but i dont call my er27 a twin turbo. never did understand that.

i plan on having a lowered turboed ea81 mpfi, drifty hatch done by july.
and i plan on beating the crap out of my offroad hatch this summer, after all of the hard work over the past few months.

you guys can hold me to the drifty street hatch:brow:
