Alright... so here it is. The one you've all been waiting for.

Originally I started off with a mint red hatch for a chassis. All stock.



I also had a Fox body mustang that I had been working in for a couple of years.



Now, neither of these provided me with enough motivation to finish and/or even start the builds on them. They were just kinda sitting.

Then Jon from Kasu Racing offered me a deal. A trade in fact. My two projects that would probably never see the road..... well at least for a LONG time for this:





Since I had already purchased an engine for the red chassis... this was only icing on the cake. An already painted car with everything that I would have bought for the red chassis anyway. The silvia front, the kouki tails, Stance Coils, Kasu Racing Control arms, all new Poly bushings throughout.... I just couldn't pass it up.

So the deal was made. We both were happy and everything is golden.

However, I was still in need of a few things. Such as an intercooler, radiator and fan, wheels, seats, etc.. etc...

I ended up coming across a pretty good deal on the intercooler and radiator setups. Thanks Longrain!! lol



I had also gotten with the car an exhaust (one of Simba's old ones), extra springs, and Whiteline sway bars with poly endlinks.



Wait wait wait...... Was that part of a wheel??? Did I buy wheels? Fuck yeah I did.



Work Cr-Kai's..... Rears are 18X9.5 +12 and Fronts are 17X9 +17

Now hows that for wheels D*Star? Shits gonna be dope as hell. I've got tires too. I just need to get them mounted up. Then I'll be able to put them on the car and slam it to where it needs to be.

I'll probably be running about 2.5* of camber in the back but i'm not sure about a pull yet. We'll see how it turns out.

Right now its sittin monster truck style.



So yeah.... thats what I've got so far. I need to start to put it together. And I still need seats and some carpet. I'll probably pick up one of those rear seat delete kits from Touge as well. But I dunno....

For the last time... I can't fucking sell the front and get pop-ups because I don't have the paint code to the car. And as far as getting a new paint job, it's not gonna happen. The paint ON the car is brand new. And until I bust up every piece of fiberglass on it... It's not gonna get new paint.

Just cuz the shit ain't some ordinary color like white, doesn't mean that it's one of these so-called "nico" cars.

many paint shops have this thing that does a spectrogram of the paint to get an exact color code from it. Just remove your gas door, and bring it to a automotive paint shop

thats prolly gonna be hard to do when its not just one color. Its got some kind of blue base coat with some kind of red pearl over it. I'm working on getting ahold of the shop that painted it in the first place. Cuz I want some other shit painted the same.

What size tires are on the front? Look like 30 series sidewall or some shit. I like how your avatar picture is of a car that looked like that before you even got it. ANyway. Tire sizes should be 215/40 front 225/40 rear. Slam it until the fender tucks at least half of your tires sidewall and just do a nice clean roll. Those wheels wont require a pull at all just a nice clean roll.

the tires on the front are junk. I didn't even check to see what they were. They are suuuper stretched though. And I don't exactly remember the tire sizes that I got.... I'll find out tomorrow. I'm pretty sure that thats about what they are though. I can't wait to get them mounted and slam the car to see how its really gonna sit.

I think I'm gonna attach my front bumper with zues fasteners so that i can take it on and off before leaving and entering my driveway. lol. it'll be better than raising and lowering the car to get in and out.

What the fuck is your stupid ass talking about?
Its a fucking driveway. Ive owned the lowest cars in the world and drive through the fucking ghetto all day.

Shut the fuck up.
Low cars are the easiest.
You just dont know yet.

paint code is not that hard to figure out by any experienced paint shop man, seriously this car could be way hot with pop up front. please do this.
and a few zipties are more then adequate to hold your bumper on a slammed car. i never raised my car ever and only lost my bumper at the track one time in my life.

I'm stickin with the sil front for now. Period. I've got some stock amber corners i might throw on instead of the clears but i dunno yet.

And i don't prefer to lose my bumper anywhere. we'll have to see how the driveway thing goes. the zues fasteners were just an idea for now. Shiiiiitt....

You wont need that much camber. Depending on tire size and brand, youll probably need a slight pull. Im running 235/40's feds with about -1.5 degrees.
