Added a lil gurney-flap to the rear wing. Got the idea from Ben (even bought the exact same thing...haha). From what I've read on their function they do quite a lot, and adding extra "wing" will increase the effectiveness of the diffuser as well

Picked up the wheels from the powder coater and dropped them off at the tire shop. Tires are ordered and on their way.

Talked with Discount Tire this morning, tires will be in on Thursday, and then I can snap some pics

This is random, but it has been pouring rain here for like 2 days straight. And I just LOVE seeing the monster rooster tail of water coming up out the back of my car from the diffuser It seems like the water carrying up could have increased from before the gurney flap install, but theres no way to be sure. I still need to do a string test...

The day I saw you, last wed or thurs, I was on my way back from Discount tire.

Got a flat in my Continental Extreme Contact DW rear passenger. Could not be fixed so I got 4 new Hankook Evo2 tires. It is a step down from the Continentals but funds were low as this was unexpected expense. So far they drive OK but make more noise than my Conts.

Car looks fresh by the way!

Thanks!

That sucks about having to buy new tires like that Thats one of the downsides of being AWD, can't just buy one new tire...

So after installing the new head unit, i decided the cluster of wires floating around back there was just to much for me to handle... I am OCD when it comes to wires; I can't handle messy wires, it makes my skin crawl. So I am trying to "fix" all that currently and its turning out to be way more work than I anticipated. I bought a fuse block to use for all the extra power connections (gauges/rear cam/switches/etc.) instead of having them all spliced off the radio harness, and I bought some connectors to be able to remove the harness later if needed without cutting wires. Finding a home for that is proving difficult but I think i've got a decent spot for it.

I'm hoping to have something close to done in the next few days but its all dependent on how much time I can spend on it, and how much extra time it will take, every time I decide something isn't good enough...haha Oh and I keep running out of heat-shrink and stuff. haha

Here's a sneak peak of the beginnings of project "fixallthewiring"


BTW, I'm already changing whats in that picture from all single wire connectors, to as many double wire connectors as makes sense. Having 10 of those single connectors takes a TON of space! #theguywhocantleaveanythingalone

Oh, and one more day until tires are here!

Easiest solution: Get rid of the Stereo in the Car
Messy wires are a pain for everyone, ask Idin about it
