Finally get to replace the turbo in my wifes 88 tonight. After that I am going to spend the rest of the night putting up shelves in my shop to get all the excessive supra parts I have off the floor so I can walk and possibly park a car in there once again. Tomorrow more adding shelves then body work on mine. O and sometime tomorrow go test out the turbo in my wifes car.

Toyota engines are extremely blood thirsty. I've split my thumb open, scraped knuckles bad enough that they won't stop bleeding for 30+ minutes, left a chip mark in my glasses, and burned myself more times than I can count.

Drove mine to work, took it to lunch and sat in drive thru for 15 minutes with no problems then drove back to the office where she is waiting to go home tonight.

Drove mine to work as well. Figured out it's real easy to light up the inside rear tire in 2nd if I turn at ~35mph. :)

As for plans for it for tomorrow? I'm going to be saving up as much as possible until the end of May for some go-fast/stop-fast/handle-better goodies. :)

Replacing a few hoses, then putting snow tires on. Don't want to go through another experience like last year :X.

My nickname when I was a kid was 'boo boo' and not as in Yogi's buddy. If it's possible for me to cut/scrape myself I likely will.

Chipped my glasses when an exhaust bolt broke free and the wrench smacked me. Bruised a cheek when a valve spring let loose while putting in my Comp Cams springs. Ripped the fleshy part of my thumb open on the factory clamp that holds the head oil drain hose while trying to unstick the 20 yo hose from the valve cover...

It happens so often I don't even stop (half the time I don't even notice) when I get cut unless it's deep enough to require immediate attention. If it's just bleeding a little I'll stop and have a smoke to give it time to stop dripping.

Same crap when I work on computers too. Swap a HDD and end up with cut marks all over my hands.

drove an hour and a half to the farm, and realized i forgot my coolant tester. the one at the farm was fubar... so.... i emptied a little bit into a 16oz bottle and tested it here in town... +5*f....thats not good now i have to drive another 3 hours round trip to drop the coolant for the winter.

that make a total of 6 hours driving to discover that the coolant wont be good for the winter and remedy that. sometimes i hate myself!


on a side note i did have other stuff to do up there... so all wasnt a loss today.
