Yes, as well as some 12-16 BRZ headlights and a modified OEM 4th brake/fog light.

Oh good! I will tell my wife. She got me those fogs for Christmas and was sort of pissy I never got them put in.

Fellas. Find you a girl who looks at you the way Pat looks at this FRS.

(I agree though, the pic looks astounding)

LOL I actually saved that one into my pictures of the car. It seemed like a fitting final shot!

That's a wonderful picture. The lighting really brings out the curves. Hot Lava/Orange are really good colors for these cars. Course, I AM biased...

It was warm for a few days... and now it it is cold again. Ordered a few more small parts for the FRS and she'll be good to go come spring time. Threw in a picture from the summer when it was nice and toasty. Hoping to see a number like that on the dash soon.

Spent the last week slowly working on the car.

Installed:
Blitz oil cooler, Removed TRD USA D-tip catback for a Blitz Nur-Spec VSR, Perrin shifter bushing, Whiteline transmission mount, BRZ 12-16 headlights repinned for FRS.
Removed the GReddy x KW to go back to stock off a 2020 BRZ... for now, as well as reverting to the stock RLCA for an easier alignment at home.

General maintenance:
Cleaned TRD intake filter, swapped cabin air filter, oil change (Motul 5w30), bled brakes and trying out Project mU G-Four 335 this season.

Still to do:
Transmission fluid, differential fluid, differential bushings, new suspension, engine mounts, spark plugs, TracBox + switch panel install.

Not many pictures, still waiting on tires and to switch to my nice white Ontario plates and return these horrendous blue ones (if only I had a Hikari).

Small update from the past week.

Went for the first test drive of the season and discovered my oil temp fitting was loose… by giving the engine a nice oil coating. Shut the car down with oil pressure still, and towed it home.
With Ontario’s lockdown being extended and the car needing to be cleaned, I did the motor mounts and spark plugs I had been putting off. Probably a good thing that I did the plugs, the old ones definitely look a little worse for wear, but nothing out of the ordinary.

If you haven't changed the plugs before then those are still the original ones!
If so they look wonderful for the mileage.

Installed my Trac-Box from Gerald, as well as a DIY switch panel inspired by Jeremy's series.Blue Adventures one. The new shoes were ceramic coated and then mounted by a friend. Hopefully the weather holds off this long weekend and I'm able to install them with the new suspension.
