    Hindsight I should've just stayed home...that was such a white knuckle affair w/ all the rain & shitty worn Toyo T1Rs. I was pretty much worn out by the time I got home.

    But it was good to see some of my southender friends again...so in the end it was all worth it.

    A couple more bits showed up that were ordered back in January. Had to wait for the parts to be made. Package left England on Thursday, and was at my door this evening.

    Got the wheels fitted last week, and the lip installed last night. Excuse the dirtiness of the car, it was too nice out after breakfast and I decided to run down to Chuckanut for a couple pics. Now I'm off to bed.

    Love the new look; meaty tires with well fitted wheels. Fine choice!

    Finally got the alignment done..... Suspicions confirmed, it was WAY out of whack. 14mm of total toe-out. Now set to 2mm toe-in. The car is now more responsive off center, and more progressive & predictable once it commences the turn.
