    Well February sucked... I got hit by a dumb lady in a black Mercedes Benz on my way for a drive in the back roads of my town. I was not happy. The lady that hit me lied and said the accident happened somewhere else, and that I tried to pass her over a double solid line.This was not the case because she pulled over to the side where there is shoulder parking, away from my lane, and then intentionally hit me. I tried to swerve away from the Mercedes by going over the line but it was too late and she hit me. Damage is worse in person unfortunately however both the passenger and I are ok. Now I'm fighting the other person's insurance company for money to fix my car as I only have liability insurance and the crash was not my fault. My mistake was not getting a police report because the lady claimed she called the police, but they said it wasn't needed. Hoping for the best in regards of getting this fixed asap. I was quoted $3k for the repairs... Any tips you guys can give me in terms of the insurance? I currently have AAA I am definitely getting a dash cam.

    Other then the radiator leaking, everything has been working well. I got to the chance to take some cool pictures in SF last week.

    Next on the to do list is to replace the stock radiator with a 3 row Champion radiator. I have tried to install it before, but I had less then 1 millimeter of clearance from the alternator bolt. My plan is to get a shorter belt for the alternator and see if I have more clearance. The following picture from back in March when I tried to install it but couldn't due to the clearance. I hope the shorter belt works.

    After driving the car for a while, I noticed that the outside tire was wearing out insanely quickly. I thought it was probably an alignment issue. The ball joints had to be replaced. It was time for new tires... Got some Federal 595 tires that looked super sick. Mounted up nicely on the Enkei 92's that I have yet to paint. Right before it was balanced. ...................................................................................................................................................................................... One of the huge problems of lowering the car was the rear part of the exhaust system. The pipe had about an inch of clearance from the ground so I couldn't take anything too heavy in the car or else I'd scrape everywhere. Once I loaded the car with 100lbs of boxes for work in the back and it was like a firework show at night. I had to get the exhaust pipe redone from the back. After shot. Hasn't scraped since.

    Some updates since the last posts. u-joints were replaced ball joints replaced coil overs adjusted new tires After lowering the car, I heard some strange noises. I knew the u joints were bad but I never had the change to replace them. I took a weekend to replace all 4 half shaft u joints with a hammer. Car up ready to take out the half shafts. Old. All the needle bearings are gone. Replaced all the halfshaft u joints and the squeaking noise has gone away. I still have yet to replace the differential bushing due to it thumping while letting off the accelerator.
