I have an air tank and access to plenty of tools. You're welcome to use it whenever you need. Just bring the basics and you should be fine. Probably bring your oem brakes too just in case something happens

Are you running schroth quickfit harnesses? They're pretty easy to install. Took me maybe an hour and most of that was cutting down the plastic clip that covers the front seat belt bolts. You don't really have to do that but wanted to keep schroth clips installed and still look decent.

I know the feeling! My son is in competitive baseball so finding ANY free weekends between April and September is hard.

Literally just need a couple torx sockets to attach the quickfit. Rear seat bottom pops right off, just lift on the front until it comes off. Then undo where the rear seat belt attached on the driver side. It's kinda under the side piece that the belt halgs over. You may need to pull that up as well to get to it. It just pops up from the bottom. Then, attach the quickfit adapter under it, reattach bolt and torque. (I forget how tight, but make sure it's secure). Then reinstall the reat seat, fishing the seat belt receptical through the holes, and the quickfit adapter between the bottom and back of the seat.

Lastly, attach the other quickfit adapter to the front driverside seat belt bolt on the floor. It's covered by a small plastic cover. You may need to bend one or both of the adapters slightly to get them to fit properly.

I can fit my wheels. Never tried with a canopy! That's quite a feat. Will be loading up tomorrow am. Headed out around 1 or 2.

Playing some lead follow with madwheeling. Managed to put down a new personal best in the meantime!

Followed by a lap where I overcooked "the jump".

Fancy.

I feel like I need track stickers at this point. But I've never been one to put stickers on my cars.
