Sheesh... old school would be masking tape and lacquer. Kids these days.


Clean & stylish, well done Lonnie. Oh, and you too Paul.

That's a nice Subaru with some nice options. However, it also cost $5,000 dollars more than what I paid for my car and then there's the expense of the cage and seats and harness and....

Although that is a sweet Subie, I'm very happy with my little budget nearly-vintage racer.

Ray...still on a rampage.


He took the car down to Carl's shop, put it on the lift and removed one of those pesky cats! He also changed up the exhaust pipe and now it is high and tight and stainless!! Now the lowest part on the car is the skidplate....as it should be!

Before:




After:









Ray also replaced the transaxle and rear diff oil with some stuff that he swears by. We even used Carl's superity-duperity pump machine to get - it - in!!








High and tight!

You're car is looking good. Lonnie did a great job on the graphics.

Now I have a question for you - - - Are you going to be at the D100 racing a motorcycle next weekend or you staying home to wax your car?

I hope you'll be at the race since I haven't seen you in a while.

Well, with only 3 weekends left until we leave for Mexico, there is lots of things still to be done. On Monday, I went down to Sandlake to see how fellow Outta Sight Racing teammate Luke was doing testing out his insane CB500 dirt bike!

Here's what I posted on his thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=449


Quote:
Luke came down to the coast today to do some jetting and other tweaking. I met him at Sandlake in case he needed any assistance. These two vehicles will hopefully be able to pose together again....on May 1st in San Jose del Cabo!





And here's a little video of Luke tearing across the flats wide-open. He was not happy with the top speed, so he might be doing some tinkering He hit just under 70 mph.




I cruised around on the sand and quickly realized that the 03 Forester front struts we put in are very tired indeed. But we figured they would be and I have a brand new set of 1st Generation Forester struts in my garage and we are going to be switching all of the hardware over to the new ones and install all four! Luckily, Cory is making the trip down and will be helping me this weekend getting the new suspension on and dialed in.

Today I switched the hardware and springs from the 03 Forester rears to my new 1st gen Forester rears. There is a bit of difference in length...not sure what exactly this will all mean since I'm using 03 springs....we'll see soon enough.





We will also be installing two new front axles because when I was under the car with Ray, I noticed one of the boots starting to crack a bit. I don't know the history of these axles, its better just to replace them with new. Then I will use the old ones as spares. Oh yeah, we'll also be doing the ball joints. And then on Monday, the car will go in for a proper 4 wheel alignment finally!


One of my sponsors from the first year came back on board and this time they actually donated some much needed....and appreciated cash; which gave me the ability to buy the axles!!



Thanks to Dick and Bob Crosley of the Tillamook Country Smoker for once again supporting Outta Sight Racing. That means in addition to steekers...we will have some more jerky to hand out to kids in Baja and to soldiers at the military check points.

http://www.tcsjerky.com/





The door decals arrived today and I am having a few sponsor stickers made up....hopefully the car's decals will be complete by Monday if I can find the time to get it done!



A lot of what we will be doing these last weeks is really just the finish stuff. I am working on the secondary door latching system that is required by NORRA and the window nets are on the way. Then looking at tool and spare part storage and how we're going to carry water and stuff. I did find a fire extinguisher that meets NORRA and was not white or red...It looks like it was made for this car and matches the roll cage very nicely!! Thanks Ace Hardware!







More to come...
