I talked to Velocity last week and they told me that they didn’t expect to get the HardRace RTA bushings in until October and estimated I would receive them later that month. I cancelled that order since I already placed an order for PCI sphericals. Then I checked with PCI and they said they shipped the bushings on 7/27. I checked with Fed Ex and sure enough, the shipping was updated. As of right now they are sitting in the distribution facility about 5 miles from my house and they’ve been there since 9/21 so I will be calling Fed Ex today to figure out what the holdup is.
I've been hearing some crazy stuff around FedEx lately with this same kind of complaint. Not sure what their issue is.

Yeah, something fucky is going on. I called and I was told they put a trace request on it. I doubt it’ll do much good. It’ll probably piss somebody off and make them delay it even longer.

I went to the junkyard on Sunday. I was looking for a passenger side fender and a front bumper but I found neither. There were a lot of 99-00 bumpers but they were all aftermarket. There was only one 96-98 fender and while it looked clean from far away, it was rusted out and mangled at the lower corner where the bumper attaches.

https://flic.kr/p/2jQgKDp I did wind up finding a power mirror switch in Type K classy gray. I cleaned it up tonight and tested it out and it works, so that’s done.

https://flic.kr/p/2jQfRwx I also found a Type K center console. It was complete minus the lid, and not in terrible shape. I scrubbed it down last night and hit it with some Meguiar’s. Here it is being test fit. I’ve wanted one of these since I bought the car.

https://flic.kr/p/2jQfRwN I also found some better looking plugs for the rear deck lid, a fresher looking fuse box lid, two IAT sensors, and an unmolested wiper motor plug (I bent the fuck out of mine doing my wire tuck). I got all of this and a set of OBD1 ECU plugs for $15.

I hopped on the interwebs today and ordered a new box for the console along with all new screws. I wanted to order the lid but it’s $163, so I might just look for a JDM version or find a USDM piece and recover it.

Still no delivery on the PCI bushings.

https://flic.kr/p/2jUetEQ New console box came in, along with all new screws and some Downstar bolts for the UCA and an M12 bolt for my trans mount.

My PCI bushings are still pending for delivery. That’s 22 days now. Fed Ex fucking sucks.

I ordered a Mugen oil cap today from ICB, along with some Seeker reservoir socks. I almost bought new lugs nuts too but didn’t. I will have to replace my aluminum nuts with steel at some point but I can put that off.

2020 is winding down quickly. Looks like I might not get to drive this thing before New Years. Fingers crossed

Mugen oil cap and Seeker reservoir covers installed. I also installed a Downstar UCA bolt kit, but can’t tighten anything down until the car is on the ground. And I need RTA bushings to do that.
The wait continues...
