So it's as close to a brand new car as it will ever get, hopefully she'll last for a while this go around. I can't find the energy to put into it anymore and it is going to start cutting into my motorcycle time in the spring and I can't let that happen








I have a vision of what mine is going to look like, just gotta find the time and resources to do it now :) Congrats on the house btw , owning is so much better than renting. I can't believe I went as long as I did without buying.
Those cars have a bad rep. Mostly because of the first Fast & Furious movie and DSMers being cheap bastards. I had very few issues with mine. Keep up on maintenance and have the supporting mods for your power levels and you're fine. It's guys that want to put a big turbo on and not spend the money on a timing belt that have issues.

That being said, I sold my GSX to buy my 675R. So, you see where I stand on that...

Who said you can't use the kitchen?????? It was the middle of winter here in Texas and the two car garage was too cold. Anyways that was then, now I have a 20x30 shop for powder coating and a two car garage up front. I will hopefully be moving up here shortly with an even bigger shop and another two car garage so I wont have to share any space with the daily drivers.

The turbo cars have metal valves covers. Don't know about the non-turbo ones.

Like I said, people tend to do dumb stuff and give the cars a bad rep.

I know they're not everyone thing. That's fine by me. Just saw he had a DSM and thought I'd talk about it with him.

I like that space. 3 car? That little indentation/cutout is pretty cool. The ceilings seem higher than normal too.

It will actually fit 4 cars but that cut out is now filled with work benches so I can't get a car in there any more. The ceilings are 12ft I believe and the doors are 8ft (taller then normal) Tall enough to get my trailer in there which is nice because the HOA won't allow trailers to be parked outside.

That is a nice setup, MTNrider. I'm jealous.

So, I've got a few projects on my honey-do list for the winter, which means that I have the green light to buy new tools. w00t. Table Saw, a jig for pocket holes, and chisels at a minimum. Hopefully a router too.

+1 MTN, kickass workspace you have there. I hope mine is that nice when I'm done. Wish I'd paid closer attention in woodshop, I totally forgot how to use all those saws.
