What did you do to improve your soobie today

Taken the idea from another forum cause I want to bring it to this forum and for some reason this one feals like home.

Well today I wired up the l series fitiment of interior lights to my Brumby with extra added LEDS. Fair dinkum the interior lights up like January 1st.

Worked out the PCD for the EA82 flywheel fit to the EJ20 motor.
Realised I didn't mix the paint well enough when I sprayed the wellback nd the wellback is the slightest shade lighter.

Earlier in the week I fitted the L series interior lights and added the LED's.

Share you creations please.

Wanted to buy some stuff, but stores close shortly after I finish work.
So just a bunch of research, really.

Went to the Bunbury Subaru to pick up some extra grille insert screws,
only to be completely ignored at the parts counter for 5 minutes, so I just left.
It was late and by the time someone returned they'd probably tell me "...they're closed, sorry..."

Want to get some tabs welded on to my roobar for my Narva Ultra Compacts,
but the place that gave me a great quote for TIG welding is only open during the hours I normally work.
So that will have to wait for the rare chance I get to go home early, or my next RDO.

Adjusted idle speed from stalling while stopped at lights to running nicely. Only to find later that day the idle speed is now way too fast...just can't win sometimes

Hey revmax, you live in Coffs Harbour, I live in Nambucca.

Steptoe, so you are using a turbo EA81 intake manifold with your carby EA81 to run gas?

I connected the VSS up to the ECU in my vortex and put 20 dollar seat covers over the seats to hide them from potential children damage.
