Things that has been going on in Mavik timeAlot has been happening lately. It's been quite crazy. I have been wanting to write about it on paper or here on my journal, but just now really been having the ambition to do it.
So I have moved from the town house from Bethlehem back to Easton at my mom's house. My mom and dad are now officially divorced. My mom has been off the deep end a bit but now with the house full with My two brothers, My Wife and especially my son, has brighten up her life day to day. The shop i used to have is now gone as it was a mutual agreement among the three of us that it would be beneficial to get rid of it. We aren't making money from it, it's mostly used as storage. We can save money from the month to month payments. On top of that the Landlord, douche bag, wanted to double our rent. What a cock Bite. He was willing to keep it the same for 6 months as long as we fixed his car. yea right, we were out two weeks after that. Fixed his car for the last months rent. I have been working out a lot. day to day Beachbody workout routines. Finished up Les Mills Combat, Awesome MMA fighting moves. Started to do P90X2 and I woke up weird the other day and pulled a muscle from the upper back area. Trying to save up to go to Las Vegas. Wife and I have not had our honeymoon yet so this would be awesome to get to go in June while there is the Beachbody Coach Summit Convention going on as well. I really wanted to go to RTX as well this year but that doesn't seem Financially possible. I've been working a bunch of overtime and take every opportunity to work more and make more money to pay bills and save for a trip. My Project car has come to a long wait as finding time for it right now is tough with having to prep the Audi A4 I picked up for my brother in Georgia. Needs some TLC. Wheel Bearing, Windshild. LCD screen on the dash need to be replaced as well, Tires , alignment and a new trunk lid to start. As for the Neon Project, Dubbed Project Church, There is a ton to do. Have to make engine and transmission mounts to utilize the RWD, rear wheel drive, configuration. The ford 9in rear needs to be installed in a 4-link configuration. Measure for a driveshaft and have it custom made. Fabricate Turbo exhaust manifold. Figure out what Wheel filaments I will need to use. What suspension setup I will use. Make a custom front sway bar setup. etc etc. Long list just for chassis stuff. Not to mention the Wiring and Engine management tuning I'll have to do.
I actually enjoyed this past weekend. Final good bye to the shop. The memories will be kept forever. Cleaned up the garage enough so we can fit the second shop car in, a 1990 Nissan S13 240sx, Chop the roof off, camo painted, 350 whp and 380wtq. Easter Sunday, Enjoyed two workouts back to back. P90X2 Core and Les Mills Combat Power HIIT routines. Alpha Brain has been helping me concentrate and stay more focus then I was with out it. I spent Easter at a friends house with My Family as well. I really enjoy spending time with My Wife and son when I do get the chance to. Past couple weeks have been tough but I am hoping things iron out a bit better. Hope every one had a great weekend.
Happy 10year anni Rooster Teeth. You guys deserve a parade on this day ever year.
They finally came to the datacenter around 3 and just finished. I may be a bit tired. not sure as I feel a bit delirious after about 15 hrs of work. Time to go home and relax. sleep for about 4 hours then workout and more cleaning of the garage/shop for Mavik Concepts
It's 1:46am est and I'm still awake, awaiting the arrival of the vendor for install that requested assistance during their install/maintenance which they set for 12am to 6am. Been at work since 4pm. Where are these guys I have already gone through13 episodes of MineCraft Let's plays with the boys of Achievement Hunters. I want to bash my head off my desk or bash someone's head in. Really now. make a plan and stick to it on time not giving a time frame and getting there way way late.
Late night at work today. Started at 4pm and going till 6am. I at least have tomorrow off. Woke up early at 7am, played some grid, worked out and mowed the lawn. Cleaned up the garage. Put the Engine and transmission back together and placed it in the neon with the engine hoist. Moved some stuff around to organize it a bit. Need some more work done so I can get another car in the second bay.
Watching some Youtube videos to let the time go by as it's a slow day. I have some paper work to do but can have the vids playing on the side. Thanks to Alpha Brain my mind is going at a mile a minute. I cant contain my thoughts too well. haha. but my focus is out of the woo-ha.
Making some plans for the neon. Trying to figure out mounting points and leveling the engine in place. Once I can get the engine and trans bolted in I can start working on the steering rack. I really want to avoid cutting the hood to fit the engine in. I'll do what I can to make it happen. After that I can start on installing the 4link rear end. Toughest part is figuring out what wheels I can use once it's all said and done, The Ford 9in rear I have for the car is 41-44in wide. I forget the actual measurement at the moment. the stock neon rear is 61 in wide as I am told. I haven't measured it yet myself but that leaves me with plenty of room for some wide tires. Crikey this car is going to be dumb by the time i'm done with it. Building the engine for around 600hp capacity and will de-tune it to 400 for daily use. hehe.
