A new keyboard, and while I'm at it, a new mouse, too.

Simple, elegant and functional without all this RGB nonsense.
Also my first mechanical keyboard (Cherry MX-Brown). I don't know what I can expect but I only heard praise of those.

 

Be at rest my keyboard of the last decade. Of all the components from my first PC, you have endured the longest! :v

Picked up a 99 Impreza L bumper and a lip for it for 80$. Have a lead on a set of side skirts so hopefully I'll be picking those up too.

Disiac, I am jelly.

And I have been nuts with the credit card recently. Bought side skirts for the Impreza, garage lights, and about 250$ in Harbor Freight to buy a bunch of bodywork tools/supplies.

What's awesome is the press + a set of front control arm poly bushings for the Infiniti was cheaper than buying loaded control arms for the front. And I get parts at cost because my wife is the hnic of an oreilly autoparts. 

 

The thing paid for itself and I haven't even gotten to the 27 year old nissan or the lexus that also needs a refresh.

 

Anyways.

 

@Kru any advice on lighting? I really need to step up in that regard.

If it flies, floats, or fucks, rent it.

At some point I'm going to pick one up for the same reason. I can throw an engine together like its nothing at this point but I fucking dread having to do ball joints/bushings. 

 

As for lighting, I went with two of these guys:

i just got them in the mail though and havent had a chance to try them out, I'll throw up a before and after if I remember. I rent a "bay" in a barn so the lighting is absolutely terrible so anything is an improvement. Plus it is hard to beat for 50$ in all.
