I said in an earlier post that my WRX has on paper, one inch less head room than other model Impreza’s. STI’s have different bucket seats, and wagons are taller. This is the most comfortable stock car that I’ve ever owned, but my seating position does need to be adjusted somewhat when I put a helmet on. It hasn’t been […]

Hella Flush – Plain Ass Seat Edition

Actually… this only took me about 20minutes to put together.  Anyone else would give you the obligatory close up shot of nice bead… but no way I’m embarrassing myself by doing that.  My fear of pinhole leaks necessitates multiple passes on occasion.  Meh.  It looks well enough from a distance, and will be fine once painted.  Not like I’m building […]

A Days Work

At the Grocery Store…


I was hoping that the “Long Boss” might be me… and not only my creation.  Not if I can’t weld any better than that though.  I can barely lay a straight bead on a nice flat steel joint.  I cannot lay a straight bead around a 2.5″ pipe. I like a close “handoru.”  Steering wheel quick releases are cool, but […]
