I tell you what… It seems like the 20-30th of the month is the only time I have to work on this thing.
Got the S9 rear upper arm installed on the right side. I got back in October installed. Had an issue with one of the aluminum bushings holes. Drilled it out and it’s fine. Didn’t want to waste time waiting to get one from S9 in Canada. Ran out of time will do the other side later.
Decided I wanted to try out these double bellow bags instead of the UAS fronts. These are from Asia so we’ll see how well they work out. The specs on paper say these have more compression than the UAS so that means it would have more lift for me since I’m driving low and parking lower. With yay much lift. If these don’t work out UAS now makes double bellow aerosport.
With the technology for everything ever changing. Mobil1 released a 20k oil. I decided to give it a try and I’ve sent the oil in for analysis. I’ve ran this oil for 40k miles. I changed the filters at 10k and changed the oil at 20k intervals. Back in the day wine the whole synthetic came out and 5k-7k oil changes I was like whattt no way and stuck with conventional oil til I actually understood synthetic and had a car that came with it from the factory.
For the past year I’ve driven things truck to Kansas City a few times. Went down the East side of Florida all the way down to the Florida Keys.
Bought a new trailer to bring a 88 Rx7 convertible home
Hauling for Martin

Got a LS400 for parts in Georgia
Snow was wild 2018
This car has been around since I bought it used from Honda in Savoy, IL. It had 110,000 miles I believe. Little after highschool I sold it to another family member Paul. He had it for a year or so and then it went to Jimmy. When it was with Jimmy it was pretty much partially mine haha! Omnipower USA had just came out and I was a dealer. It had the Omni works and was fressshhh! Years later Jimmy ended up swapping a GSR motor in. It ended up sitting for years after Jimmy got married and got his wife a new car. Jimmy then left it to his brother Tommy. It sat most of the time since Tommy didn’t like the clutch and it had no power steering or A/C. Now over a decade of sitting in the shadows. I have it with me again. It’ll be a track car in the making like I intended it to be years ago!
This photo popped up on my Facebook feed. Apparently some company that makes the knock off aero of the L’Sportline kit is using my images. So I had to repost the what the OG LS400 looked like. Over a decade ago.
The OG LS400 had UAS aerosport bags on megan track coilover bodies. The new LS400 had 326power coilovers. Regardless what anyone says bags vs static.. brand vs brand. I don’t care… I’m building this car for me. Selling the 326power coilovers helped recoup costs for the build. Plus no one is buying air ride at the moment anyways.
Sadly the OG LS400 has been sitting for the longest time while I collected parts because the rear wheel bearings went bad. I fixed all that before making it to the new house and it sat again. Now it has no legs…
