It's not just the car that makes Cup the most popular. It's also the man driving her. Your enthusiasm for these cars and your leadership on Tail of the Dragon inspire the rest of us. Keep it up Al. We love you for it.

Well, the end of an era.
The camera that has taken most of Cup's pictures is officially retired. The ol Kodak EasyShare 543 had a good run, but is pretty beat up and obsolete. I was awarded an anniversary gift on my job, so I now have a Nikon B500. Anyhoo, hers a tribute to ol trusty, with the new sidearm next to it.

So I've posted a brief shopping list for Cup' s return. Here's a more comprehensive list:

- new sensors
*MAF
*crank position
*cam position

- new brakes and rotors

- and there's still the phantom fuel pump issue. Gotta figure out the problem, so I can eliminate the kill switch.

-door switch. Might be the fuel pump problem.

-Secondary air injector pump. Either that or delete the system altogether.

Once those things are done, Cup is going to the shop to have her trans. dropped again. She's having engagement issues. I could do it, but I'd rather have my shop pinpoint the issue.

And once all of that is done, she needs her AC fixed..

And a paint job.

So that about sums up Cup' s repair list.

You'll get there mang! Little by little. Yort is in need of a paint job too. I think I'm going to tackle it this fall or so. Gotta have it ready for Roswell

Most definitely mang. Little by little.

I'll start with replacing the sensors, then the brakes. I'll get with my buddy and fellow orger, Geoffrey, and weight the options on the SAI pump/system delete. If I can find a pump on the cheap, maybe that can be a temp. fix until the delete takes place.

Of course, I don't need paint to have her running, but she's in need of a new paint job. Gonna get with Jason/Severe about a green color shift paint job, similar to the job they've done on Shonnel's Evilina.

I did ponder a slight color change on Cup. Nissan has a color called Jade, which is an awesome color. It's like VW's BlackMagic Pearl, but green. A buddy of mine has a Nissan Rouge, painted in Jade- man, that color is amazing! If ever I decided to go with Jade, I'd give it a tinch more black. A color change isn't friendly on my current future budget, so, Jason's paint guy will be just fine.
