In The News did an awesome job on a custom plaque I had made capturing the Super Street feature on the Galant.
This little space on the wall is a constant reminder of all the time, money and energy spent in the garage. But more importantly, it represents the work and efforts of those who have become a part of the build over the years. You people are the parts that can't be bought, or replaced. You are the most valuable parts of the build, and mean more than any sum of nuts and bolts combined.
It's better sweet getting the Super Street feature. I learned just recently Super Street was ending their print magazine. December 2019 would be the last issue to hit newsstands, so I'm extremely grateful to have been a part of the magazine before the end of its tenure.
At the end of the day, it's awesome to reflect back and think about all the awesome people I've met and the friendships I've gained through building the car, and car interests. Many of those started here on the forums, so I never this place for granted.
I actually did a bit of wrenching on the car for the first time in quite a while. The clutch on the car has never been very cooperative. In hopes of getting the QM to be a bit more tame on the street, I changed up some of the hydraulics on the system.
I went from a "green" slave (which has a 13/16" slave piston) to a "red/gold" slave (which has a 3/4" slave piston). The idea being, I get a bit more travel at the slave, which makes the clutch release a bit more effectively. I went ahead and installed a new clutch master cylinder as well, just to make sure there were no hidden issues there.
I checked the clutch fork position in the trans window by removing the boot. I just wanted to verify nothing crazy had changed since installation. It looked good as well, so I installed the new hydraulic components, and bled the system.
Once I had the car out on the street, I could immediately feel a difference. Nothing drastic, but the twin disc was a bit more tame...And if you've ever owned a twin, than you know anything helps.
In other news, my wife got me a dope ass custom cut gold Cover Craft sunshade for Xmas. The car never sits outside, but when it does, that old ass 90's dashboard gonna be protected.
Rolled 169,000 miles on the chassis over Xmas, which is picture worthy
Still nice and tidy underneath:
Had a light burn out in my Greddy temp gauge, so ordered some tiny ass bulbs and replaced them:
Lastly, I finally got around to refinishing the trunk area. I rebuilt the custom subwoffer box, and put in a custom floor panel. It turned out nice and tidy, just as I hoped it would.
Thanks for following along.
