On my way up to Formula Drift in Dallas for the weekend!!! The perfect opportunity to do a fun mini road trip with just Gaia and me!

Oh, the curse of daily driving something older than you. (By 6 years!!!) Just wishing I could drive Gaia again 😭 I still can't find this stupid flange! Two months is too long! Yes: I have been trying to find an axle flange (and have bought four wrong ones now... Lemme know if ya need one!) for almost two entire months. Seriously time for an #O2JSwap if my next couple tries fail like all the others have. Man, I may even buy a whole parts car just to get this thing!!

Hey! My newest #YouTubeTutorial is up on my channel at last! Link is in my bio πŸ› οΈπŸ˜€ I finally got around to editing this one from a million years ago. I pretty much just filmed it all the way through the job, so I had a LOT of cutting to do. I hope y'all like it! How to pull your #O2O transmission from your #Mk1 #VW.

Checking out my ride height with the new track bar Jeremy and I were able to fabricate. Last season I felt the rear end had a mind of its own so hopefully this helps keep it under control.

Caddy upgrades coming along nicely. Did a lot of heat control mods to reduce interior temps and over all engine bay temp. First time doing an exhaust wrap and I'm pretty happy with it.

For #MobileMechanicMonday, let me give a shout-out to Sarah of @yeswecanautorepair in Austin. When I first decided to start my business, I felt totally lost. I had no idea how to handle invoicing, taxes, parts warranty, insurance.... ANYTHING. (Despite the fact that I had been doing the whole Pistons&PixieDust thing on the side door YEARSSSSSSSSSS, it was all cash under the table and very much low tech.) On a whim, I reached out to Sarah and asked her advice. Keep in mind: I'm an hour away from her, starting the exact same business: mobile automotive repair by a woman! She could have been threatened by me, she could have seen me as competition, and easily could have not responded to my messages and would have had every right in the world to feel that way. But that is not what happened at all. Instead she met up with me and talked with me for over 3 hours (!!!) sharing her experiences, giving advice, and answering all of my questions and it was amazing. I'm just so grateful for Sarah, and all of the women out there like her, kicking ass in the automotive world, and inspiring and lifting up those around them. I'm absolutely going to pay it forward! #MobileMechanics #Mk1Monday #GirlsWhoWorkOnCars #WomenInAutomotive #WomenInTrades #FemaleMechanic #LadyMechanic #WomanAndMachine #AutomotiveTechnician #AutomotiveMechanic #Mk1VW #Mk1Rabbit #Mk1Golf #DailyDriver #StuckInThe80s #BaseModel #PowerNothing #ABASwapped #2Liter #WannabeRallyeCar #WannabeGolfCountry #DoinHerOwnThing at San Antonio, Texas

For #Mk1Monday, here's Gaia's butt featured prominently in one of my attempts to take a good photo of myself in my shop for my website. I'm ashamed to admit that this was by far the most difficult part of my day. Using smart phones and taking portraits are definitely not my strong points. Also: yes, I realize that I am doing it backwards. Thanks to all who point out that it would be more logical own a newer Toyota and work on older VWs, not the other way around. What can I say, I do my own thing 😊 #Mk1VW #Mk1Rabbit #Mk1Golf #DailyDriver #StuckInThe80s #BaseModel #PowerNothing #ABASwapped #2Liter #WannabeRallyeCar #WannabeGolfCountry #DoinHerOwnThing #GirlsWhoBuildCars #FemaleEngineBuilders #GirlsWhoWorkOnCars #WomenInAutomotive #WomenInTrades #FemaleMechanic #LadyMechanic #WomanAndMachine #AutomotiveTechnician #AutomotiveMechanic #GirlsWhoLoveCars

#MotorMonday and DON'T JUDGE MY MESSY SHOP! It's a creative space! πŸ˜‚ (actually, I'm still moving in and figuring out where I want everything.... It's an art!) I think I must have moved my stuff around at Atomic Auto at least 2 dozen times before I achieved "Ohm" with it, and that was about a month before I moved to Texas πŸ˜‚ On a less satisfactory note: does anyone else live in the middle of nowhere and have the worlds shittiest internet?! Sigh πŸ˜’ I have to hotspot from my phone and let me tell you... I started uploading my YouTube video at 9:30 last night..... 7am and the damn thing is only at 17%.... and I gotta go to work soon and abandon it! Curse you TMobile!!!!!! *Shakes fist rapidly at the heavens* πŸ˜‘ maybe my Monday upload will become a Tuesday upload....

Also, sometimes I forget that "Gaia" my #VW #DailyDriver also has a small fanbase here on insta, so here's a sweet #TransformationTuesday post of her throughout the past decade that I've had her. Let it be known that when I bought her, I was anything but a mechanic. In fact, I didn't even own any tools. There were so many incredible people along the way who gave me pointers, helped me out, gave me parts, and supported my love and desire to keep driving this car. By far my biggest thanks goes to @rtwrally for everything that he taught me, and for helping me grow into the technician that I am today! Also thanks to the rest of the #Banchwerks crew for putting up with my constant presence, as Gaia evolved into her lovely self. #Mk1 #Mk1VW #Mk1Rabbit #Mk1Golf #Lifted #HellaLights #SebringWheels #WannabeGolfCountry #WannabeRallyCar #GrafittiCar #ArtCar #CrazyHippies #PoweredByVegetableOil #UsedToBeDiesel #ABASwapped #2Liter #PoweredByUFO

My first YouTube tutorial in almost a year is up on my channel! (Link in bio) Some of you might have seen my 3 half-assed tutorials, all of which I just quickly made while I was still at my old shop in Portland, and actually trying to get work done in a timely manner. Well, even though I can't film videos at my new job, I thought it might be fun to make another tutorial at home! Here is a screenshot from the video. I'm so excited because in the past, I've just shot a video in one go, and uploaded it as-is, and not thought twice about it. This time, my wonderful husband filmed it for me, and since he is good with computers, he edited it for me, so it actually looks somewhat professional! (Thanks love @street675r, I'm so grateful!❀️) Check it out if you feel so inclined, and give me some feedback! πŸ˜ƒ #YouTube #TutorialVideos #YouTubeTutorial #AutomotiveTutorial #HowToChangeYourEngineOilAndFilter #OilChangeTutorial #FemaleMechanic #VW #Volkswagen #ABASwapped #Mk1VW #ABASwappedMk1Rabbit #Mk1Rabbit #Mk1Golf #2Liter #2LiterABA at San Antonio, Texas

At some point in March of 1980, this lovely gem was created. 27 years later, I would fall in love with this little beast after catching a glimpse of her, tarped up behind a barn in southern Washington, and decide to sell my perfectly reliable, modern daily driver to buy her. Because of this car, my life changed forever. I love you, Gaia! I wouldn't have never become a mechanic if it weren't for you (Always breaking downπŸ˜“πŸ˜‚). Happy 37th year of existence! I hope for many more because I want you to be the last daily I ever have. #mk1 #mk1vw #mk1golf #mk1rabbit #ABAswapped #2liter #hella #rallyelights #wannaberallyecar #dailydriver #dailydriverappreciation #300kclub #basemodel #powernothing

Sorry for the delay. Here's a photo collage of the pics I took of the #vanagon swap that I did. Turned out really well. Yes I am very versed in VW motor and wiring motor swaps. Look me up for any of your vw motor swap needs. #abaswapped #vanagon #aba2.0l #motorswaps #coloradokombi

@coloradokombi

Here's a vanagon that had a bad tiico motor, so we swapped in a 2.0l ABA motor and updated wiring to obd1. The owner is pleased with the outcome of the swap and was cost effective since the ABA 2.0l motor shares a lot in common with the previous 2.0l tiico motor. #vanagon #tiico #2.0aba #abaswapped

A #VW in her natural state.... with the hood up πŸ™„ what is it this time, Gaia?! 331k on the clock and I shouldn't be upset about an extra-whiny fuel pump that I took from a donor rabbit with unknown miles. The fact she made it this far with it and waited until we moved and I unpacked all of my tools.... such a dependable little machine.
