      Good stuff Colin!

      Let me know if you need a set of Zwo mirrors to complete your theme. I happen to have an NOS set sitting around

      love almost everything about it man, the only thing thats a sore to me is that the rear fender lines do not match with the front.

      other than that, great car man.

      I thought about that too, maybe down the road, but to be honest I kind of like it. Maybe thats me, maybe that my wallet......

      Thanks though!

      Things have been "brewing" so to speak.

      Love your car. Its Amazing. Did you do your retros or did you get some one to do them for you? I really dig them and am thinking about something similar for my car.

      Thanks! Originally they were done by orau22 but they got thrashed in shipping and I had to re-do them almost from scratch.

      I messed up the trunk lid, looked like crap, re did it.

      bumper turned out like crap.

      hood turned out like crap.

      re-prepped everything, paint soon, the guy who i paid to spray the first time who messed it all up is not going to redo it for me, he doesnt have enough time even though its all prepped again. i leave for wuste in 8 days. Decided to tuck some wiring harness and smooth the bay a little, driver side already was smoothed but rubbing caused it to heat up and break off.

      So first thing I did was plan to prevent that from happening again and pounded and tubbed the fronts the best i could.

      Then I tucked the wiring on the passenger side.



      Then i filled and smoothed and relocated (again).



      Then my raised subframe FINALLY shows up today!



      8 days till wuste, extreme rapid build.

      Thanks! Going to try and make it to GC but no guarantees! PM me your number or any info on meets happening in Van/Seattle around the 10th of June as I'll be in the area, would like to see some of the locals out there.

      Haven't had warm enough weather to do the engine bay. Got my old subframe out though and the IDF one in.

      It had been bent on the passenger side and was a fight to get the control arm bolted on. I don't know if they use a jig or not but either they don't and it's not straight or they took it out too soon and it shrank, was a bitch to get lined up and bolted in.

      Trunk lid and bumper got repainted on the 25th, trunk lid i f'd up the bodywork, bumper was painted ****ty and rock chips everywhere.



      Got my axles out, getting rebooted in 7 hours, dropping my hood off for paint in 5. Then I need to source new tie rod ends on a Saturday as well as find the special tool. 81 hours my car gets 3M'd and 99 hours I leave for Vegas.

      Went out and did a little photoshoot with some friends.





      Got my control arms:



      Saw there was no metal left on my subframe.



      Installed the subframe and control arms. (don't have pics of install process)

      4* of camber front and rear.




      Drove the car 100km's and my clutch then blew up. So stay tuned over the next few weeks going to start doing some go fast bits.

      Very nice build, but damn you don't have luck with your car. (first engine now this)

      I like the subframe concept, how much cm is it higher?

      Anyway, keep on going, we love to see progress.

      Thanks! It's getting old, 190,000km's on it and things are going to start breaking, I've accepted it. Need to work on keeping up to date on my services though......

      The subframe sits an inch higher.
