Havent updated this shit in a while!! nothing much really has been done at all.

Been waiting for stance toe arms forever now, but they should be here soon i guess.

I'm changing the front to a sil front, already got the fenders and a new kit.

Think im gonna get a Version Select type 3 kit, but not too sure. \

Thats pretty much it

yeah i still got a lot of work ahead of me.. I need some toe arms in the rear cuz that shit is wack and then the front is fucked up. The front wheels hit the coilovers with 10mm spacers so i'm going to try and throw another 5mm spacer and see how that works, but i still gotta go lower too. i duno im just rambling on, we'll see how it goes

of course the front wheels hit the coilovers? after you add spacers i can promise u that you will find out all the other shit you will rub... u need a serious air hammer and just slam smash and pound every fucken piece of metal in sight.

yea, that size up front is retarded if you plan on doing anything other than highway driving. A 2 second zilvia search could have told you those werent going to fit up front without spacers.

time for fender tubs and other race car biz.

yeah the fronts are a little bit too big, i got 10 mm spacers with literally no camber and im

not rubbing anything at the moment. I still need to put a motor in it, lower it, and add

camber. I don't know how im going to get it to work yet, but i will figure it out.

small update:

Brought the car to the shop a couple weeks ago and were gonna get it ready for paint.

Just started grinding all the little rust spots in the engine bay since the engine bay will be the

first for paint.

Motor and pics should come soon!

Heres some pics of whats going on and what I just picked up...


engine bay with most of the rust spots grinded down and seams.


Going to paint the interior too and I'm getting ready for what you guys will see next picture.


Yeah im gonna go RHD and if it's not your cup of tea, guess what i really don't care. Ive always wondered what it would be like to own a rhd car and this will also help me with turbo clearances in the future.

We're probably going to drill out all the spot welds on the firewall and actually just swap the whole firewall over.

Little update*

I got the engine bay painted



Then we primed the rest of the car, and now just waiting on my kit and fenders from TF



I couldn't wire up the rb myself so i brought that shit to TF works and should have it back friday. Oh and i undercoated all the wheel wells and underneath the car, but i forgot to take pics. I'll get around to it sometime this week. Hopefully i can keep the updates rollin and get this car out SOON!!

Picked up the wiring from TFWorks yesterday and the kit from TF so i did some work today...



Don't mind the ghettoness of the wiring, it will be cleaned up asap. So i wire this shit back up and wam same shit as before i brought the harness to TF. After a while i look at the rhd ignition and the wirings dif than chassis harness. Fix that and car starts.. Yay, but i think i just blew $400. O well it looks clean.



Just a little test fit hopefully tomorrow i will have more to show.

LOL. I'm a fucking retard. I thought ALL those pics were part of one post and that the car with the hood was a different car, which looked to be fastback at the time.


















/nevermind it was in my hand pic.
