    Just waiting for rotors, VT motor mount and torque link, and rubber rod end boots from Tarett then work shall begin! I've been watching FedEx and UPS tracking updates like a kid waiting for Christmas.

    Oh I bet you do Kitty :wink:haha! :devil:
    But really! I have a window with tabs open to UPS for each package. I'm seriously acting like a 5 year old on Christmas Eve.

    Let me guess..... RMW Head?
    I can't afford the big things yet. I'll wait till I graduate and get a real job. :cornut: However, I am working up to the bigger items; I'm not far off as I have just about everything there is that is smaller.

    Just to keep excitement up you could find something small and order it. That's what I do anyway.

    That would have to be shipped seeing that I am on the opposite side of the country as Jan :crazy:

    No, this could be shipped, but no need. I can have a local dealer get it prepped for my car and install it :cornut:

    And finding things to spend money is is NOT an issue :lol:

    Well I can't think of anything too big to be shipped then :idea:
    I just like to be excited for something so I buy things sparingly... except this time because I wanted to get things done while my dad still has his shop.

    It can be shipped... but since it's big and awkward it would probably be expensive.

    Anyway, good luck with the build! That's the fun part... well that and driving :cornut:

    Thanks! I will! It's good father/son bonding time and I think my dad has figured out why I keep buying stuff and gets less and less annoyed that I am spending money and more interested in teaching me how to do certain things and also we get to talk about everyday life and life lessons.

    Have fun pretty much putting the touch ups on Ryu; since you've done just about everything else :Thumbsup:

    More stuff! Tarett Engineering rod end boots, JCW door sills, and SP performance slotted rotors. I wanted brakeman's real bad but couldn't part with that much cash. Oh well, I think I got something pretty decent.
    Now where to find the time :idea:

    Just got my Vibra-Technis engine mount and torque link in! Thanks to Colin Green and Dave.0 for the hook up on these. Now to clean all that juice from the OEM mount off the engine compartment:idea::mad2:

    That's why I'm replacing all my mounts BEFORE they go :cool:

    Glad you got them... They are awesome :Thumbsup:

    At least with BRG you'll hardly notice the fluid all over. Mine has dried up and the only thing I found that works is using some engine compartment cleaner and automotive grade sand paper, it's exhausting trying to get that out.

    I'll never know... Got rid of that big one a while ago :cornut:
    Another awesome part of the VT mounts is that they look freakin' awesome in the engine bay :Thumbsup:
