Impromptu Photoshoot: Honda CB360T

Installed and sorted the Common Motor electronic ignition kit on my CB360T, the bike is now running better than ever! Ended up on Chilligo Road in Cambridge for a scenic drive and pulled over for some quick golden hour photos.

Impromptu Photoshoot: Toyota 86

Finally got around to installing my Bilstein B6 shocks and BBS RG345 wheels on the 86 and decided to take some photos behind the shop. I’d like to get some more random photoshoots on the blog, so expect more posts like these!

A Temporary Hiatus

Before you say it, this post is not a metaphor for pressing the stop button on the proverbial eight track player that is the GT6. This post is however, pressing pause. Now, I assure you that this pause is only temporary, and for good reason. Not so long ago, one of my best friends very…

Defining Completion

What is it that you’re chasing? The perfect paint job? Flawless upholstery? The no-compromise time attack monster? Or simply, a mechanically sound, roadworthy vehicle? Reaching a finish line seems like a relatively simple task; evaluate your new project, define a scope of work, compose a reasonable cost sheet, build and stick to a schedule, then…

Rehabilitated Carburation

This annual event hosts the best of the best of British cars throughout Ontario and the surrounding area, naturally peaking my interest. While it will be a couple years before I will be able…

Spring Fling

It’s a beautiful Saturday morning; the kitchen is illuminated by the rising sun, the aroma of freshly ground coffee beans fills the air and bacon fat sputters atop a sizzling frying pan. As the elixir of caffeine starts to filter through my veins, the excitement for the latter half of our morning beings to grow;…

Loose Screws

It always seemed like a pipe dream, something that was frequently discussed around the family dinner table but never within realistic reach. Fantasies of wild projects, weekend barbecues, late caffeine infused nights, 5S and family bonding echoed through my parents kitchen over coffee and dessert. More recently however, an opportunity presented itself which allowed this…

Packing It In

I’ve talked about it before, it’s nothing new. Target project completion dates continue to be chased but are often left unfulfilled, I remain to be my own worst enemy in this recurring theme of sluggish progression. Still though, my perspective with respect to the importance of effective project planning is left unchanged; you can’t meet…
