      i should do mud flaps for winter.......nice touch. oh and fender liners....that would help keep the mess down a little.

      on a side note. what do you guys with absolute clean bays use to clean them. mines superb compared to my other cars in the past. but i want to take it up a notch.

      quick release hub and lock came too

      The cute little one brings so much life to the picture, as for the big one, not so much...

      More details pls

      Edit:

      Pulled of all pillar material from all 6 pillars, actually J_T, you were right! they look just fine without it.

      Pulled off the wiper blades, the tray, and cleaned out and around the pollen filter, ECM, and wiper
      motor, and checked to see if there is any evidence of rodents or rodent damage (lil bastids), all ok!
      Cut out the clear plastic window out, that cover the firewall VIN, since it was getting faded and brittle.

      replaced my strut mount bushings and bearings cause my old ones were really old and clunking. made a HUUUUGE difference, the car drives so much better now

      also replaced the passenger seat belt buckle, first time i havent had an airbag light on since i bought the car in February

      replaced the fuel filter

      bought a replacement spanner wrench for my KW coils from ThatVdub (thanks again)

      bought an OEM .:R hood bra, i've wanted one for a while, and i finally was the first person to get to this one and bought it right away

      Got the Unibrace in today (big thanks to nkgneto), was only able to take a couple brief ramps on the highway home but you can definitely feel a difference. I'll need more time with it to push the car harder than a short onramp. Feels pretty great though, especially for the minimal cost.

      I scored a free catch can, unfortunately it was due to the loss of my buddy's 89 supra.

      Installed my rear LCA's yesterday and aligned it.

      2.5 degrees camber in rear and 1.5 up front.

      Unless you have some staggered/stretched/bagged setup, that's quite a bit of camber in the rear. Even for the track I don't run more then 2 back there. If its for looks, more power to you

      Neg camber looks stupid, though. Why would you do that on purpose? If you CAN dial it out and get a better contact patch, why wouldn't you?

      The car is low - and actually - I tracked it recently before getting my LCA's - with 3.5 degrees of camber and it did just fine. It feels great now. With less camber it rubs in the rear.
