Stole my daughters old bike water bottle holder and repurposed it...had to trim the mounting point to be able to rotate it 90 degrees so it would mount to the adjustment bar.

Its a swagman.



The mounting point has a + that allows it to rotate 90 degrees, but its too high up. So when I had first turned it, it was sitting on the ground and pushing the seat release bar up...which means the seat wasn't locked in place. There is a lower hole thats used if mounted to a traditional bottle cage mount point on a bike. I used a knife and shaved the edges off the + until it squeezed into the lower slot...it was a bit of a pain in the ass, so there might be a better option. It's just what I happened to have sitting in the garage not being used.

Oil change, spark plugs and k&n air filter. Cleaned a little bit the throttle. Car feels great. The was like cutting the gas or harness/stalling issue. But today after the Maintenance feels good! I just need a TPMS and fix the high beam.

Printed Uber badges and taped them to my Evora when I dropped my business partner at the airport. Of course I drove around from departures to arrivals to mess with Uber takers. You should have seen the looks and all of them double checking the make/model as I slowly passed by the ride share area. Haha

Installed GRP Carbon Fiber Air Scoops, fit and finish is perfect and goes great with my Carbon Fiber barge boards and rear hatch. Having so much fun modding this car with carbon fiber parts costing a fraction of what parts for my Huracan cost

I swapped the BOE CAI filter element with a spare I had. It also gave me a chance to add Bobsy Racer's 4" aluminum tube idea to the side fender air inlet.

The only issue was a pesky rivnut in the filter housing that spun with one of the 3 bolts while trying to get the old filter out. I finally got the bolt out out and re-seated the rivnut with a M5 mandrel in a Rivnut setter. But it took waaaaaay longer than it should have.
