How to install Origin fabrication S2000 UCA mount gussets

Before I get into explaining all about why you would need to get these gussets and how to install them, let me explain why I didn’t post a blog last week. If you read the last blog post, you would know that I was applying for a new job and wasn’t sure when I would be able to do any car projects.

Let me just jump right in, I struggled with many different intros to this article. In the end all I wanted to get across was how amazing of a weekend I had with my friends, and how awesome it was to share everyones highs and lows. It was truly the most fun I have had at any motorsport event that I have participated in. I wasn’t able to achieve the times I was looking for and I was disappointed in…

The STREETS OF WILLOW Adventure

The STREETS OF WILLOW Adventure

Over the past 6 months you have watched me build this car into the daily driving, track capable, budget car that you see here today. The point of this build was to have an all around car that I could thrash on with out fear of financial consequences if I were to wreck it.

Headlight restoration
