    All of central PA is boring as s**t. West PA has Pittsburgh, east PA (@Osiris19 ) has Philly. You're gonna be in the middle.

    You'll be pretty much where I picked up my RSX from haha

    Mansfield is close to where my aunt lives. It's beautiful up there. Lots of Amish but a lot of mountains. Lots of fracking up there. My aunt lives like 2 miles from a frack site.

    I live about 3 hours south of Mansfield but I'm up in Williamsport a few times a year. I'd love to come up sometime and hit up a bar. Just let me know!

    My buddy had a Mustang pull out of a parking lot in front of him last night and the wreck totaled his Miata :( He's alright, but we're both upset by it; he was pretty heavily invested in that car, and we were gearing up to do an engine swap next year.

    Haha, yeah, he said something along the same lines :lol: And I'm glad he was able to walk away too, considering that I think his car had the airbags removed.

    We met up last night and went over everything; he's already getting things lined up to buy another miata, so it was good to see him bounce back from this.

    Been looking at bikes. My sister's fiancé works for a dealer and comes across all kinds of deals at dealer only auctions. Fingers crossed something comes up soon. Looking specifically for a ninja 650, but we'll see.

    Installed my timing chain tensioner, rocker assembly, camshafts, and camshaft holders. Set the timing. Adjusted valve clearances in cylinders 1 & 3 so far.


    Going to have a few other S2000's over in the morning to work on their cars while I do some more on mine.

    Took the Vette out for a bit tonight to see what's going on with Art Basel (art week)
    Car's now about 2 months old or so, only at about 620mi on it after tonight's drive
    Swung by a dealer downtown and saw one of Mayweather's previous Veyron's but now with a new Chiron next to it
    Then the dealer across the street had some premium classics (kinda their thing)
    But otherwise not much really going on on a Saturday night
    I'll have to go by the Bug dealer in the daytime with my camera, see if they even let me see it as they've kinda put a dividing wall between that section and the main showroom, but still accessible via Rolls showroom.


    Sunday's plan - hopefully put some time into the S2000 now that all valves are adjusted to spec.

    I just discovered that the clearcoat on my front bumper is coming up in pockets, so now there's water sloshing around between it and the red paint underneath :???: This poor car has been really patient with me over these years of college, I'm looking forward to fixing it up.

    Once I can get some decent shots I'll get pics of the new Xpel Paint Protection Film (clear bra) and window tint. Bought a few supplies to fuel my new cleaning and detailing obsession...

    Do you have a tutorial on detailing around? I neglect my car because it's hard to tell what's good, and what's bad. People just as often either b***h at me about Armorall on trim or tell me to use gobs of it...

    Well lets see here...

    Do you own a buffer or polisher? What kind of detail experience do you have? What is your budget? Detailing is pretty much like building cars lol. Theres cheap products and then there's professional products. Ive been detailing vehicles since i was super young and still really enjoy it.
