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!

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.

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.

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!
