Good to hear that you are OK.

Here's one to heads-up driving!

Did the perpetrator bear any consequences?

Hopefully the perp will get their dose of carma someday. My wife and I had two close calls lately. One asshat drove around her on the left when she was making a left turn. She saw them coming in her mirror and they weren’t paying attention and couldn’t slow down. And some lady pulled out of a side street and I had to swerve to miss her. Maybe we do need self driving cars...

19 degrees feels like 12 in Hotlanta, I think I'll stay inside!

Dern. Was 32 in Winder. It's interesting how we can be so close yet such a temp difference.

Saturday, I did 20mm z1 spacers for my rear wheels (it was a nice excuse to get some thin wall sockets) and figured out how to lower my rear subframe to install the z1 bushing collars. Fairly easy install, but took me a while to figure out what I was doing with the subframe. Never did that before. More on this later when I get to really test the handling improvements.

I disconnected my JDM rear fog light - a few of the LEDs failed. I guess the unit isn't sealed very well. And it's not easy to replace with the aftermarket rear diffuser.

Maybe.... I'm told I'm getting the low mileage discount, yet I pay about 45% more for the Z than my Jeep. Oh well, it's definitely not a deal breaker, just slightly irritating two times a year.

When I had my car at Specialty Z for my sc tune, I had them install all the sensors, relays and wiring for my two gauges. Here's a crappy picture of the finished cubby panel I fabricated.
