"On the block wit a blackout"

I wouldnt ever say my car would be finished by any means, but it's definitely done for awhile. Next round of mods is gonna take some funding so gonna be awhile, turbo kit upgrade, headstuds to tolerate more boost, and some porting work on manifolds :) Gonna be costly but sometime in the future but for now she is still a blast to drive and now looks 10x better than she did a few months ago. Jyeah!

Evo is done!

As Endo's dumb ass said "so if its done it's a wrap?" Haha stupid ass. Vinyl is 99.9% done, Im likely gonna rewrap the back trunk spoiler cuz the corners look like shit and I have lots of extra so may get around to that at some point. Installed the new front lip today and it went perfect, gonna get rid of some more fender liners at some point but after the lip was on it was lookin cherry. Gonna do a flat black rattle can day for the mirrors and door handles and might hit the front lip too because its slightly gloss black kinda sorta but it will be awhile as Im pretty lazy and Im actually gonna go back to work sometime in the future LOL. Got my Oakland SX tickets already thanks to santa/alicia and stoked on that shit, nothing better than panic throttle sounds in Oakland in January :) Vegas... I dropped a few hundred bucks at the Orleans so if anyone wants to swing by and locate it Id be really grateful. Fuck gambling hahahahaha Pic of the murdered out evo up top woot woot

Forget you rain!

Haha rain is coming so Im relocating! Heading to Vegas for a few days to soak up the desert sun, although its freezing there at night at least its sunny. Finished wrapping the evo finally, ordered a new front lip yesterday that arrives monday, installed my smoked rear marker lights today and that breezy is all done. Just have to install the lip to the bumper and then the bumper back on and that thing is all done. Until the next round of mods which is likely a FP Red turbo kit, looking to kick things up from 365- 450ish. Likely gonna do a few more things while its down but all in all gonna make it faster for sure :) Knee is feeling better almost daily but still not able to ride my road bike, once I get enough flexion to saddle that thing up Im sure Ill get it worked out in a hurry. I tried today but just a wee bit of pain at the high bend point so waiting a few more days, likely when I get back Ill be ready to get after it. Happy Holiday cupcakes and see everyone when I get back.

Sunday Sunday Sunday!

Lol Lets see what did this week have in store for me. hmmmmm Had my followup appt. with Dr. Farr and realized he is just as much of a douche as I remember. Dude told me he strung my new ACL pretty tight so that when it stretched and got situated it wouldnt be loose and sloppy, I thought that was a smart thing to do and then he asks me how the flexion is doing and stuff. I told him it was pretty stiff and wouldnt straighten out, he jumps down my ass about how I need to be working on it and this and that. All this after he told me not to do a damn thing for the first 2 weeks. Fuck off man I listened to you and now Im at fault? Fuck off. Got all my road bike parts I needed yesterday and putting in work on my own agenda cuz this fuckin guy is a kook. Wrapped 90% of the evo so only 1 more bumper to go and thats the easier of the 2, so thats going well. Jay retired from the car wrapping business but Ive been ramping it solo and its been working out decently. I dont know if I ever wanna do it again, but its been fun and my car looks MUCH better than before. Got the BF-it DVD and oh boy super good and learned a bit more about BF which is always good. S&M guys always send me mags with my orders and the newest Albion and Dig made for some good reads. Tons of trail footy and as always has me wondering why San Jose has no legit trails within our city limits or even 15-20miles, shits insane and we are pure lazy. Thats all for now, Vegas this week if anyone wants to roll hit me up for details, Im gonna drive it so could use another body to help with the trek there. Jyeah.

Recovering! Ha

      Been couch surfing for a week now just trying to stay off my feet and get the knee all squared away. Its doing pretty good Id say with all the swelling pretty much gone and stitches will come out on the 14th at my followup appt. which Im sure will  go well. Should get fitted for the old donjoy brace as well and start a therapy schedule and get the quads built up :) Yay. The evo has been slowly evolving and getting flatter and flatter black each day. I am pretty stoked on the vinyl and enjoy doing it cuz its a challenge of sorts and its made my car go from mehhhh to beastly. Ordering a new front lip this week, or test fitting my veilside lip and seeing if I feel that one as much as I used to. Anyway should be done wrapping the car in the next few days which is good. Perfect picture of a sleeping Bailey and a teaser of the evo getting flatter. Enjoy the few pics and cant wait to get this knee back to status!

Freshy Stitches

Got the dressing off to air this puppy out and let it breathe. Kinda crazy that went I first had knee surgery ever is pretty much the reason I started my blog, kinda keep track and have photos and memories of it all. Fast forward a few years and things come full circle right back where I started just older and wiser, errrrr older anyway. All the port sites lookin good although only 2/3 shown limited range of movement but for the most part all is well kicked the vicodin after 2 days and tried the valium to sleep better but kinda didnt like the feeling it gave me when I woke up. So back on the recovery tip and feeling good. Stay tuned for more pics and whatnot. And eventually when Shawn Hott gets on my hype we are gonna shoot the evo, she is lookin pretty these days.
