That is cool! My next place I want to get an aquarium setup.

I've been working on the car/project and a few other things.

Very cool!

I've been keeping myself busy with mechanics work, less so than last winter though. Got a lot of maintenance stuff to do on the SV650 and Legacy before the summer starts, too.

Well although I wanted to do work on my car I haven't really done much yet. I ordered all LED bulbs for my car and am trying to get them to all work properly. Otherwise I've pulled a motor and tranny for one guy and took his heads in to be rebuilt because his water pump froze and took out the belt. I've been building another motor for a couple that bought a car that came with the motor completely disassembled. I have another person wanting me to do a 60K, and John would like be to get the dent out of his oil pan. Other than that I would like to get the front turbo pipe off to see if I blew a seal on that. Rear one looked fine. If the front looks good then I'm going to pull my down pipe to determine which head I need to pull that is causing all my smoking issues.

I've been busy traveling all over Europe since mid January. But before I left, I had to replace the oil pan on my R6. I was changing the oil before Christmas break for the first time since the previous owner had it done at a shop, and the drain plug was in there really tight. For some stupid reason the entire corner of the oil pan shattered when I was trying to get the damn thing undone. Oh well. Also, as some of you already know, I picked up a 2010 Mazda 3 hatch 6 speed after selling my Neon over the holidays. I have to drive to and from Seattle this summer, and didn't quite trust the Neon to go that far haha.

I mainly have a to do list for the R6 sometime after I get back, which includes:
- fender eliminator
- LED front/rear turn signals
- Black bolt kit - the bike came with a 'red' one, and they all look pink
- New clutch
- New dark smoke wind screen
- 35w HID's - a friend did a 55w Infinity FX35 conversion, which was like driving during the day, and I'm considering taking a shot at that instead
- Replace the lower fearings with good condition used ones

Pics of your TT?

Oh and I bought a 94 TT and last week I bought a 93TT also. Gotta throw a tranny in the 93 and finish putting the new motor/turbos/everything in the 94.

Looks like a cool aquarium set up. What room did you put it in? I had a common clownfish live eight years in mine, so they are a long term investment compared to freshwater.
