revlimiter Drives an ND

A wild ND appears!

This is something I’ve been putting off for a while. I didn’t want to drive an ND. See, I know myself. I’ve been me for a while now and am pretty good at it. I knew I would want one after driving it. I was right. I want one. The ND is fantastic. But let’s […]


Bikini Top End Caps

Yeah... I've been driving around like that.

Garage Star Fender Brace Install and Review

Garage Star Fender Braces!

Coolant De-route

Time to get some hands dirty.

What’s the reverse of a coolant reroute? I’m calling it a deroute.

Keeping Woodland Creatures Out

That's a big sheet of mesh.

Far too many words and pictures about gluing some mesh into Sharka’s extractor hood vent.
