Got off early tonight, so I washed the wagon up, and drove around for a bit. Great weather we're having this weekend. Here's a snap!

Right now its the get in running correct bug. Just ordered new brake pads, I did upgrade from the OEM ones. Then I need to get the Timing belt/water pump junk done to it. Then I'll finish the brakes, then start in on the suspension!

The timing belt is DIY doable. Not very hard at all if you have the right tools. I did mine+water pump+plugs in about 4 hours.

I'm just always a little hesitant to work on the engine myself. I just don't have a lot of experience in that dept., and I found a pretty reasonably priced shop to do it too. But it looks like I may have to get some new tires now. I got a flat on one, and my spare is warped, I just don't want to buy tires right now if I know I'm switching to lighter wheels later.

if your planning on getting new wheels in the near future... just get some craigslist tires for the time.. save some money and then do it right.

Well, I just remembered when I sold my 240sx last month, that I gave the guy two spare 255/40/17 Azenis, so I hit him up to see if he was going to use them. They're way too skinny for the wheels on it, even with a stretch. So hopefully, I can get my hands back on those.

Edit: That should have been 215/40's. I have problems with numbers sometimes. Lolz. But I ran 17x10's in the rear on it.

Quick update for you guys, have today and tomorrow off, and thought it'd be a great day to change the brakes, well who ever had the car before me had The Hulk as a mechanic. My lugs were over torqued, and so were my bolts on the back to the front caliper. In fact, I snapped one trying to get it off. But luckily it was inside the sliding pin assembly, so just need to head to the dealership tomorrow for a replacement. So it'll be tomorrow that I finish this job now. Anyways, I'll let you know how the new pads perform, I got a full set of Project Mu's street pads that I'll be putting on.

Help a fellow sportcross brother out when I need to do mine. I think I briefly spotted you a while back in edmonds.

So I got all my brakes issues sorted, and now have the system bled. And the upgrade to the Project Mu pads is great. They bite quickly, but not harsh in any way, they feel very tight. They are the Type NS pads if anyone was interested in getting them as well. I'd recommend them for sure.
