I swear I love this damn car. It's so versatile. Beat it to a pulp and it keeps doing work.

While I'm at it, might as well show off this picture. 150 retaining wall pavers. They're a little under 8lbs each.

Well I admit that my aesthetic maintenance has dropped in the last year due to the car's purpose changing... but I still make an effort to wash and spray wax every other month. A few months back I was doing a concrete dropoff at the recycling yard and threw some blocks into what APPEARED to be a solid pour but was actually still a very wet puddle... and splashed wet concrete all up the side of Jukeys. ugh, that was heartbreaking. And I didn't have the time to address it in the moment so it was dried on there and boy did I curse my name when I had to sit there and scrape off solid concrete stuck to my door panels, body trim, and wheels. It's mostly gone now, but left a ton of nasty scratches behind which I'll address at the new year when I take my day to do my annual paint restoration. Moral of the story: a light wax is a very important barrier to nasty things, and if you routinely put your vehicle into nasty situations, it's that much more important.

At 101K miles my belt tensioner decided it liked tensioning so much that the bearing exploded and seized, thankfully with my 2" subframe drop it was actually really easy for me to change. Most DIY people I've seen drill holes straight through the frame rail to get to the bolt, but I was able to drop the engine enough that I could get away with just bending the pinch weld out of the way (which I bent back afterward) Also with my big tires it was way easier to take my front bumper off and crank the wheel to the right than to jack up the car and take the wheel off. It's a nice change of pace to actually work on a car and it only takes an hour, in comparison to installing the subframe drop, which took me nearly 40 or 50 hours spread across a couple weekends (which still has more work to be done)

Also bonus while the bumper was off I finally finished and installed the brackets for my matching halo fog lights

Finally got around to install all the parts I purchased from @Acidbbg (Nismo CAI, Nismo exhaust, Forge intercooler, and Synapse DV) on my Nismo RS. Trottle response feels much better with these parts installed and sounds amazing.

I also have the 2J Racing midpipe which has not been installed yet. Just looking at the Nismo exhaust, will the 2J Racing midpipe take away from the "tone" of the Nismo exhaust? Is there a noticeable change in performance with the 2J Racing midpipe (after tune, of course)?
