Next week I am pretty much fine with any evenings. Havent seen you guys for a long time. And my car needs some company to keep it happy, hehe. It feels neglected right now.

I just washed and waxed my car and someone scratched the **** out of it at the rear wheel fender. I hate street parking.

When is the DIY day coming? Cant wait. Too many things to do, I guess I will be there first and finish last.

1. FCABs + RTABs
2. Rear subframe + differential bushings
3. Clutch pedal master cylinder
4. Tie rods

*If you have other stuff you want to get done, lets hear it (With 180K I'll most likely I'll need to do it too)

Maybe we could get a few guys together and do another group DIY.
On FCABs, are you doing just the bushings or the carriers along with it?

While we plan for a DIY day, I think I should get the FCABs ordered too since I have to do the alignment anyway after the RTABs. I was looking at some meyle HDs, dont know if I should get the bushings or the support carriers with already pressed bushings.

I've got the powerflex bushings to replace my worn FCABs, got the RTABs for good measure. On the Xi, the FCAB procedure seems to be kind of a *****, I also don't have a press that would get the FCABs free from the housing. (since you have to re-use the housing)

At this point I'd be willing to pay a shop, but a lot of places won't take customer parts. Any recommendations would be great.
Hey if you still need help with your FCABS I have a press at work I can barrow if ya need help, just let me know.

By the way when is the next meet?

I had my bushings replaced with Powerflex bushings by the guys at Autosport Werks in Broomfield; they took my parts and they do good work.

I am looking for the rear seat bottom portion in beige for a coupe. If someone is taking their rear seat off installing roll cage, inform me.
I guess the back seat was the wrestling ring for the dog or cat of the PO lol.
