April 2nd – Light housings all masked up and ready to spray. Just waiting for some paint to show up along with supplies to build a mini booth to spray in.

April 3rd – This building is coming up fast, I already can’t see the street anymore and I would guess I’m going to lose my view out into downtown in this year.

April 4th – Yes, still messy but moving out more of the Evo parts. My old wheels and tires sold, so not too much more big stuff to move through now.

April 5th – The other new building across the street is going up even faster than the one in front of my building. I would guess it’s only going to be a few more months before it’s taller than my building or any of the others near it.

April 6th – Surprised I haven’t shot anything from LA Cafe earlier, I usually end up going there often since it’s close and I love their food. This was a chipotle chicken wrap which I end up ordering often and the Fraziskaner is always good. Just miss sharing those with Zab like when she was here.

April 7th – More projects, tracing out and measuring the stock Evo 7/8/9 intake manifold so I can start modeling an alternative one in CAD for an idea I have.

April 8th – Finally restocked on E-6 chemistry. I got tired of waiting for the Tetenal kit to come back in stock at Freestyle so I decided to make the leap and try the Fuji kit out. People say it’s the best, but it looks like it has a really short shelf life. I guess I’ll have to wait until I have even more rolls and sheets piled up before I end up mixing this.

March 26th – Rescued some torn up drawings and writings Zab left behind..


March 27th – Trying to just focus more on work and projects. Worked on editing a lot of interior shots I had done for a client.


March 28th – Out working on my 峠モンスター(Mountain Pass Monster), pretty much a non-stop project it seems.


March 29th – My JDM Evo 7 GTA lights showed up. Overall not bad condition, though there were two crack areas on the edges of the lights I’ll have to sort out when refreshing the lenses.


March 30th – Supplies gathered up, at least for the lens refinishing. Still need to pick up paint supplies for the housings and HID cutoffs.


March 31st – Hardest part is over I think, I had to bake the housings at 225f for 10 minutes each and then use a heat gun to finish getting the silicon sealant to give way on the lenses.


April 1st – No fools here, only chilling on Caturday


March 19th – Zab and I were walking around looking for where I could shoot my daily photo before getting dinner. Originally I wanted to shoot under the Grand Ave bridge, but there was still too much traffic to position myself in the center of the road. As we were walking out the stairs leading up to The Broad looked really cool, so I setup to try to capture that.


March 20th – Mondays.. I was really tired from work, but after dinner I finally got to show Zab the immense beer selection at Ramirez’s. I suggested she try Orion (probably my favorite Japanese beer) and I finally got to try San Miguel, which was also really good.


March 21st – Raul lent me his plotter to use while he’s on vacation so I could start cutting my own vinyl stickers. Zab doesn’t like when I have taken pictures of her so she’s hiding off to the side out of the frame.


March 22nd – Finished cutting some dual color stickers with help from Zab and some LEDs came in that I wanted to try on the Evo. They unfortunately didn’t work as well as I hoped, so I’ll still have to find a better set.


March 23rd – Cut a lot of stickers for Cam to ship him once I send out a box of a lot of gear to him.


March 24th – I don’t even know what to do anymore, some things I had done in the past Zab found out about when I should have told her and she walked out. Even now I wish I could go back and change things since not a day has gone by that I don’t over analyze things.


March 25th – I just need to get out of the house and drive and shoot. That can sometimes help clear my mind.
