Put in some hood struts

... obligatory driveway shot for @rhino 😘
How can I convert my hood strut to your setup, I barely go under the hood, but I'd love to future proof it some more.

😂 I’ll be sure to tell her. It’s a fun car and well loved. One of the few manual CR-Z’s I’ve ever seen.

I finally ordered the Ultra Racing Upper trunk brace

but am still teetering about a type r steering wheel

edit: had a few cocktails and am no longer teetering. Type R steering wheel en route.
nothing like a little liquid courage to help hit that "Buy" button!

unfortunately my steering wheel order was cancelled :( seems to be out of stock nationwide… annoying how all the sites list them as in stock and you’re able to order.

as a consolation I got a Mishimoto turbo blanket and my UR brace should be here this week.

Are you trying for a specific version? Meaning are you just searching for either the patent leather or the alcantara? The Alcantara is newer and may be available if you had no luck with the leather. I love mine. Never gets hot but would be tough to clean (if I ever let it get dirty).

Leather is P/N 78501 TGH A90ZA
Alcantara P/N is 78501 TGH C90ZA

Good luck with getting it then. If u do, I kkow you'll love it
Sorry I meant to say I like the alcantara too but I just did red leather interior so I’m trying to keep it cohesive… thanks!

and, as a clammy hand guy, I’ve heard that’s problematic with suede and such

I'm not sure how true this is, but at the time when the 2020 model was released, I heard they were discontinuing the leather one, that's why I bought mine at that time, I think it's worth asking the dealer if it is back order or discontinued.

How tough were those Ktuned camber arms to install? I just received the same ones and they are going on when I install my eibach sport lines.
Me n my co worker did it with jack stands one of the bolts is a pain to remove due to the angle you need a wrench and possibly an adapter. Due to limited space and visibility getting the pin back in was a pain as well but if youre patient and know what your doing its do able. Springs and the arms took about 4-5 hours to install. I cut my bump stops a tad bit too make sure you re tighten everything and after a day or two of settling re tighten again my front sway bar end link rod was not tightened enough and when I was turning while parking I was getting a weird rubbery click / thud noise. All is good now I even bought the tien spring silencers and put 2 on each of my front springs for a little peace of mind
