    Tis the season of upgrades

    Had some time one afternoon this week and got to work on the Dech trying to get it all ready for track day.
    On the list today was...
    New Fluidyne rad
    New Harpell Auto Fab Power Steering Tank
    Oil Change
    Grease it
    Try on new wheels and pray they still clear.

    First up was the rad, it was a pretty straight forward install. Had to do some AC line bending and moving to get it to fit... but overall went pretty good. Fits nice. Looks nice.
    I thought as I am going to be upgrading to more power (the cams) replacing the original rad with an upgraded one is probably a good idea... and well... it looks sweet lol.

    Secondly was the Power steering tank. This is made by Harpell Auto Fab in Calgary area. Great high high quality piece.
    It's baffled inside and really just looks cool.

    Next up was mating my new track wheels and rubber together.
    Shout out to Joy City Tire for getting me in right away. They said they balanced up really really well and had to use very little weight to get them into where they need to be.
    We've also put aluminum tape on the wheel weights to make sure they will not kick a weight while on track.
    but.....
    THEY LOOK AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Really happy with how they look and I'm really excited to see how they perform on the track. Taking 10lbs + a corner off the car should feel amazing.
    Just a reminder, these are 18x9 +30 Fast FC04 with Nankang AR1 275/35/18.
    And for those interested, no spacers or machining of the wheel or any funny business to get them to clear my brakes.
    You can also see from the last photo, this combo has ZERO poke. I know I'm running a very aggressive camber, but I bet with stock alignment the wheels would fit perfectly.
    I'm almost tempted to buy a 18x10/11 for the back and run a set of these all the time... however I really really enjoy the chrome SVT wheels.

    Up next on the to do list is to get the Diff in and I'll be all set for track day.
    Also also! I am going to be attempting to polish my car. The poor thing hasn't been waxed or polished in probably 15+years or more. Time to get the paint up to snuff with the rest of the car.
    More on Zippy's detailing adventure soon!
