Default What's BEING DONE to my, well, not the car itself.

Who says I don't learn from T'bo's mistakes?



I'm just kiddin' T'bo.

But ya, had a wheel/tire shop (a normally reputable one too) mount tahrs on my GT-Cs and the turnaround was less than stellar. Turned out the tech mounted one front on one rear wheel - and vice versa on the other - then had problems taking it off the wheel and re-mounting correctly.

I didn't think I'd ever need to do it but tagged EACH wheel to make sure the right tire got on the right wheel.

And the left on the left. Hahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaa....

Default Installed AEM intake

l had a few small issues, but went in fairly easily. Biggest problem was getting the "air horn" out of the inlet hole on the drivers side. Pleased with the quality of the kit.

That was the longest ordeal in my life. Took a whole month to settle everything. You would figure that someone who does it for a living would be better at their job.

Now i dont know if ill even have my new set mounted.... haha first world problem.

If you don't believe me go to Walmart buy the huge generic bottle car wash and wash one side of your car with one bottle and the other side with the other and compare lol

I used to pay like 15 bucks for 16 Oz chemical guys matte wash and I got tired of running out and having to wait because you have to special order their stuff.

So I ran out to Walmart and bought black magic car wash 64 Oz for 7 bucks exact same results

Last couple weeks: both rear wheel bearings replaced, clutch replaced (Exedy stage 1) and broken passenger outside door handle replaced. Still to do - fix the annoying front end rattle over ruts, replace the curtain airbag on the passenger side that the previous owner didn't bother to, sort out why the air con only blows cold at the lowest setting, hot everywhere else (no fun when outside is 98F) and freshen the paint (many dings and scratches). My Z wasn't loved.

I order my chemical guys's stuff off amazon and it always gets to me in 3-5 days. and I am in Wisconsin and if I remember correctly it comes from florida. should not take that long. I do not use there wash soap but use there citrus orange wax for le mans paint, and some interior detailer spray.

New wheels and tires. 18x9 255/40F 18x10.5 275/40R. Glad they are finally on and think they look good. Wheels were sitting in my dinning room since April!
