    What did you do to your E3 today?

    Polaris! Like mine....will be again, one What's the back spacing on those wheels? Is it the picture or do they look like they're sitting inboard a lot. I ask, as I have a set of those that I just did a trial fit and they sit way different, filling out the fenders nicely. Good looking...

    E3 Owners on E9’s.

    I think my FJ40 was my favorite car out of 20+ cars I've had...100% agree that I'd never look at one with a v-8 conversion. That f engine was a beast. Never let me down. Very much the tractor version of the! Had a few FXSTC's, too...lots of fun riding, when I was younger and didn't...

    E3 Owners on E9’s.

    Yeah, lots of good points...I think the love of cool old cars is the glue that holds it all together. I remember, when I used to ride Harley's for a while, a quote from an article that referred to someone trying to justify their desire to purchase, was, "you don't buy a Harley with your mind...

    E3 Owners on E9’s.

    Years ago I flew cross country to buy an E9, but it was a rust bucket. Since then, I went through an fj40, a ground up 1600 resto, 73 CJ5, and a few other fun cars. Now, I have two kids and no use for a two door car. My car hobby is only fun if I can enjoy it with my kiddos/wife...mostly...

    Yay! Now if I could just carve out a little time to finish sanding, repairing hood/trunk, priming, painting, new headliner, install engine, rebuild front and rear suspension, trans, drive shaft, brakes, bearings, reinstall glass.....Oh good Lord...I'm going to bed...:-(

    Sad day at Double O2 Salvage...

    Whoa! Is it still possible to swing by there?? I'm only 30 min or so, that hurts. I used to go there almost 20 years ago with my first 02.

    If those bleeders are pointed down, they will never ever ever bleed...ever. Must face up to allow air to go through the path to outside land. Have you ever bled brakes before? If not, understand that it's not always as easy as, 'follow directions and it's done'. There are a handful of things to...

    Hood shocks instead of the factory torsion bar.

    Nice! Looks straight forward enough. I like that the lift is hidden a bit in the scissor bracket.

    Hood shocks instead of the factory torsion bar.

    Anymore pics of that one? I much prefer the mini struts on the actual folding brackets. Very clean look. I'll definitely be going this direction. Looks easy enough to fab something.

    Exactly. Do you do photography, as well? It's annoying seeing poor choices in lighting/composition/editing in soooo many pictures... The tech is so easy to use that everyone fancies themselves an expert these days.. LOL. My wife and her instagram photos.."what filter do you think I should use?"...
