Bragging rights, I mean Rice! Had a friend of mine ask if I could help him with his Honda Accord, “what’s wrong”, can’t open the driver door from inside the car or out! Well bring it over and I’ll have a look, wish I’d passed on that job. The car arrives and all I hear is how strong the engine is and how the suspension and tires hook up like Godzilla crawling up a mountain side! OK, that’s cool, why don’t the door open? Alrighty then, first thing have to get that door panel off, removed the driver seat and take off the panel. Depressed the release and the bugger was stuck, there is no way to see the mechanism so I need to drill where the latch is anchored. Well, to even get a drill head where I need to go, part of the door frame needs to be cut away, his eyes welled up when I started cutting and drilling. The frickin latch is plastic that locks on the door pin, really! Got that bugger released, the door is open and time now to install the new latch mechanism. Holy mother of Godzilla, part mounted fine but all the linkage to actuate the locking features didn’t line up for shit! Had to reconfigure all the linkage, I hate setups, I hate every day when working on Rice!
So let’s go out and listen to some of this bragging rice and how much Godzilla is the most fierce ground ponder on the street. I mean comments like, “this is my Nissan 240SX, at lease that what it says on the title but this is actually a Skyline and I had to do that because America is afraid of fast cars”. Then you’ll hear some crap like this, “if you look into the headlights you can see Godzilla’s eyes sticking fear into every pedestrian on the street”. If that’s not enough you have to hear the bragging rights of all the girls these guys pick up. ” You can also tell we got 4 doors, I was going to get a GTR but I figured 4 doors would be better because I like to keep the car full of Japanese bitches and sometimes I have so many Japanese bitches in here when you open it up it smells like a roll of Suzy.”
I mean anytime you get the configuration of an engine installed sideways leaves no room to bolt on a tranny that would pull Godzilla off that mountain side!
