I've spent this weekend doing a bunch of stuff.

I started with swapping out my winter tires for my summer setup. Then, I was taking off my stock RSB to get the H&R 24mm bar on that I bought used from a buddy for a deal I couldn't pass up. However, that got bad when one of the U clamp bolts slipped and I stripped it. Last one of course. My dad was able to tighten it back up and then we put more PB blast on the bolt threads and he managed to get it off.

Of course I wasn't planning ahead and didn't buy new bolts, so currently it's running no RSB. But, at least it's completely off rather than one bolt not being tight. The rust on the end threads was so bad that it was requiring huge amounts of force to loosen it. The triple square bit slipped and I knew it was stripped. I got lucky that we were still able to get it off.

Then, I got around to taking the vent piece by the radiator for the stock intake. Cleaned it up a little bit.





Put back my OEM mirror caps until I can redo the blue ones. The white doesn't look all that bad; something different since they've been black for the past 2 or 3 years.



Then, I went to test drive it to test the clearance of the tires (235/45/17 RE-11's on a 17x8 ET48). Ran into trouble with it rubbing on the passenger side.

I decided to call it a night since I already messed up the RSB bolt and work on it today.

I spoke with Mark (RSMark5) about adjusting the rear camber last night. After jacking the rear up today, it took a lot of force to break the bolt loose. We finally got it loose (my dad ultimately broke it loose) and adjusted it a little bit. Test drove it again and all is well. I measured the toe. Slight bit of toe-out, but I'll be monitoring the tires. I think that's within spec anyhow. The front part of the rear tires was 59.5" and the back part of them was 59.25".

Before adjusting:



After:



The bolt (6.5 years of rust sucks).



And, that's enough for this weekend. Next weekend, I'll be taking care of the H&R RSB.
