when and where

ideas? i've got a bunch of little mods i wanna get done to my car, but they'd all get done alot faster if we had a bunch of ppl working together. i know everyone has something they're either waiting on or don't have the tools/time to do, so i think i a shop day would be a great way for everyone to get a ton of stuff done to their cars.

I am good for just about any weekend except for next weekend. Most of my weekends are free unless I am out of town. And I will meet just about any where in the Houston area, but perferably on the south side. I am down in sugarland.
Who else is interested?

2. trailer hitch and lights
3. subwoofer amp
4. daytime running light disable

Nothing to install right now, but I might take of my injen. So, depending on when and where I might be down. Southside works for me also.

Because I got a crappy job on my rear windshield, started to turn purple.
And I wanna get 20% all around at Gen-X. They're charging $60+ for just taking it off.

Did you wipe the tint down with windex? I have heard this causes tint to turn purple. $60 might not be bad deal for removing tint on a rear window with a defrost element but honestly, I haven't ever removed any tint. You might want to shop around a little and see if you can get a new tint job that would include the removal of the old tint. Just my two cents worth.

hehe - im hyper addicted now - i just lifted my car and took off the wheels w/ my impact wrench just for fun :D (though i ended up cleaning the wheels) we can have an install day at my place if you guys want - i got a fairly good working space, and enough tools to do most installs, though i might need some stuff for the bigger jobs.

so, whos up for something this weekend?

Well unless I get my exhaust in this week I will at least have an uppipe to install, I would have a little more to do but I got bored and put in my blitz dualtt and mbc the other day. Did you use new gaskets for your uppipe Rob? I havent decided if I should try the stockers or just get the extra thick ones yet.

i kept the original upper gasket, and replaced the lower uppipe gasket. (OEM gasket though, not extra thick or doubled up gaskets) and i have a leakless uppipe for 6months(?) and still going strong :D

i've had numerous experiences before the latest install thats so far worked out - took me 3 uppipe installs to get it right - i think i've got it done by now ;) thought others have done 6-7...even more! before getting it right, so no guerantees i guess

I had to wait about 2 months for an exhaust to come in from Japan. but it was from GReddy, hopefully Blitz is alittle faster.

but usually it comes on the boat in containers to Blitz USA. then shipped out from there. Its spends along time on the ships.

Robert, what kind of air compressor you get, and you start getting any air tools yet?

later

alright, so whos up for something this weekend? if ya don't post, im gonna start calling each and every one of you...i know where you live...i know your screenname....and most importantly, i know what car you drive...so watch out!!! ;)

i bought some stuff, and wanna build this camera mount thingy
(see this thread) - maybe we can do a few of these for everyone, that way it'd get done quicker and easier.

i also have my craptastic DIY intercooler sprayer that needs to be rerouted and refitted, along w/ some other random bits n pieces.

Alex i believe has an uppipe he wants to refit on his car

anyone else?

william - can we use your shop this weekend to have a little clubwrx gathering? that'd be alot better than my place, which doesn't have much...
