Car's sleeping, but today I pumped up the tires and rolled it forward a couple of feet to prevent flat spots. Checked around, no mice in the upholstery or wiring. Put some more penetrating oil on the parts I'll be unbolting come spring.

Getting a parts list together for shocks and tierods and stuff, but the dollar goes lower every time I add an item.
She is getting there, I'm feeling a change in the weather already. Im going to get my miami wear out soon and make sure I'm still looking fly.

The shoulder harnesses are obviously hung from the harness bar.

I'll take some photos when I'm home and have sufficient light in the garage.
Okay yeah. Just an FYI some track inspects may not allow you with that setup. I know your way of mounting to the seat bracket seems tough, but the idea is you don't want the harness attached to the seat. When the seat tears out of the car you want the harness still holding it all down so you don't just eject the car strapped to the seat. But it is what it is. I have yet to have any tech even look at my safety gear at the track

Right on! Feels so good to get the autotragic out of there eh!

Mean while I'm also starting to collect some parts for the E21.
Amen to that, Im probably going to get arthrtitis from spending so much time in a freezing garage. Is there any progress on the ITB? havent seen the thread in a while.

BTW us and the other local e30 hooligans should go for food soon and shoot the breeze.
