Lol... yeah wide... I don't plan on working on this car on my back anymore, there is a garage for 5 euro an hour with lifts and all tools and air hookups 15 minutes away. If I wanna work on anything its going there so garage=not needed. It never snows and that cover over the car is retracted now because its super windy but once it calms down I'll extend it out so the sun doesn't beat on the car all day.

ITV passed, just waiting on the registration papers but I can drive it in the meantime with US plates so I'm good. Yeah... Going to do a little fine tuning with the Euro fuel and then do a few cosmetics, a headunit and just enjoy it.

So, ran into a hidden speed bump tonight, scraped pretty hard but no damage, was freaking out... a lot of these roads don't have street lights so I didn't see it till I was right on it, luckily I was not speeding...


Also, I'm going to assume my headlights suck because I got flashed literally 10 times on the way to work. High beams were not on. Going to adjust the lights down some and then look into getting some used mint OEM headlights shipped out vs whatever repro ones are in there now.


Good news is that the New Edge headlights adjust with a screwdriver lol.

There is detailed instructions for aiming the headlights in the owners manual.

Yeah I know how to do it... but the highs are not really any brighter, these headlights suck tbth. I kinda like the LMR projectors... but they seem to have the QC issues that all the others do plus they are $200. I'll probably get a used OEM set that I know actually has a properly designed reflector.

I know that you know how to turn a screwdriver... I meant that all of the measurements and specifications are in the owners manual to properly aim the lights using a level driveway and the garage door.
When I bought my car, it came with brand new aftermarket headlights that were aimed at the tops of the trees! Haha
I have a set of factory lights waiting to be polished and installed.

And it kinda surprises me that a brake and lamp inspection was obviously not a part of their inspection when a vehicle is brought into Spain.
At least the lamp part...

Its supposed to be. I dunno. Car passed with 0 issues after every swining dick and their mom told me a "highly modified car like that will probably have issues passing".
Probably because their ****box sedan had issues passing most likely...

The way I do halogens is the way LMR does it. Pull the car right up against a wall, mark wall with tape. Back car up 25ft and put the center bright spots just down and to the right of the tape mark.

Light output from whatever repro headlights these are is still *** and that is with Philips Xtreme Vision bulbs in there so I know its the headlights... thinking of just sucking it up and dropping the $200 on the LMR projectors with the H1 bulbs. I don't want to spend that money right now but... I basically can't see at night. And all the reviews of the LMR projectors says the light output is very very good.


Other option is to get a set of brand new repro headlights and send them directly to a HID retrofitter but that is even more $$.


edit: Retrofit source has some very nice entry level ACME projectors that I've been reading take like 2 seconds to properly install in housings and that would be cheaper and way better than $200 for those LMR projectors... You literally just enlarge the headlight hole, screw in projector, pop on shroud, seal everything up and plug in ballasts. I think I can handle that...

As far as actually driving the car... its not anywhere near as smooth and comfy as my blue 98 was but holy dog**** this thing FLIES around corners. I can only imagine how good it'll be when I do the front and then get the Bilsteins out back re-done with a new set of springs back there as well. Can't go any lower really... speed humps around here make it so I'm still trying to hunt down a route through my new town that is devoid of any speed humps so I don't have to literally stop and crawl the car over them. I'm almost there... Feels like a cartoon the route I have to take to my house but it only adds on like a minute lol.

Does this route, purely by chance, happen to pass by the beach where all of the scantily clad women will be located later this year?

Went for a cruise today. Lots of roundabouts, scared the **** out of at least 4 other drivers. 120-140kph down the highway. Not great pics but I'll get better ones. I love this car... definitely good call to keep the 3.27s tho. Not really any speed limits... just suggested... The nice thing is ppl in Europe actually move the **** over if they are in the left lane and let you pass.

Lots of looks for this car too. I live right across from the boardwalk and its getting warmer and I'm starting to get ppl actually stopping and watching me back the car out of the driveway lol.

Since you can roll out and super cruise, you need a t56 with 3.73, 3.90 or 4.10 rear gears. Nothing like cruising 130 Mph @ 3000 rpm..

Yeah I saw that too. I dunno if that's the way the light is hitting the gauge or what. Took the car out today and everything is kosher. No idea lol. I go to WOT and she snaps right to 12.3 and stays right around there.

That is the eventual goal with this car when I eventually do the real engine build to it. WAP block, .020 over, fresh C heads, On3 turbo and a T-56 wide ratio with one of those rear end gears. Right now I'm just enjoying it. I'll honestly be happy if I get this summer and next summer out of the JY engine in there.

As it is now I generally roll at 80-90mph. Not a real issue to get parts over here either, just have to wait. Even a set of heads would be ok to send USPS as long as each head was in its own box to make the 70lb limit. Getting a trans would be interesting but I know places like Astro ship worldwide. This is getting ahead of myself.
