the shed is my most expensive personal build


Was over 1K ago, but it was my first oil change here

IMHO, to justify its' price, the S209 needs to perform at least as well as my moderately powered 05 built beater, and even that might not convince me to buy one cause my next STI isn't likely to be moderately powered.

I'm putting IAG back in here. Engine wise the car hase been trouble free for 56K. My STI is nearing the 60K minimum JJ led meto expect from a 2618 piston equipped block and it's still running strong.

Thanks

Got these done a while back. I think they help make it less commercial - It kind of in my front yard

Building full length rear shelves above head height. Then permanently install the compressor so we can use the 3/4 in drive gun. We hardly need air any more though since electric tools have become so good. At that point the whole basic plan will be complete, and I can finally clean up, bring over the rest of the bigger tools, press, spring compressor etc. and get them into semi permanent locations.

But, I'm on vacation and I'll have a fully rebuilt trans to reinstall when I get home before I can work on shelving. It's already nice, but I have an interior lighting improvement project planned, and outside work lights eventually - I looked at some nice LED floods I really liked for a different project and learned they we over $700 a fixture! I "only" want three Not going that route. Have to work on it.

The Trans: Going to swap the the longer 07+ gears while it's apart. Only debated with myself about it for a few minutes. I have plenty of power for longer gearing and hopefully it will minimize the number of time I reach fuel cut in lower gears. Previously 1st through 3rd, if I stepped on it and waited a second I 'd already have hit it.
