Front Relay Board

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

I just got through wiring up the front relay board (and found I had put the wrong relay on the rear relay board in the process).  It actually looks like I know what I’m doing!

Suspension work

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

Sean came over and did 3 hours of hard work under the car while I “helped” by handing him tools and making bad jokes (as if I make any other kind).  He replaced the springs and torsion bars, but kept the shocks (as the shocks are very good autocross shocks).

It was a good thing he was looking under the transmission, as the speedo and clutch cables are both “toast”. He’ll be getting me some new ones later this week.

Safety tip:  ALWAYS have an expert replace your springs, those things can kill you if you are not careful.

So while I am waiting for the new speedo and clutch cable, I will continue working on the wiring in the front compartment.  Lots of fiddly wires and not-so-great documentation.  *shrug*
