      So I finally got the new wheels mounted up on the car...





      I'm not keeping the black for very long. Should be going into powder coating with in the next month. Other then that, the car hasn't changed much. I got bored last night, and decided to do a little "spring cleaning" with the passenger side of the engine bay... Here's a before/during/after shot...



      Ounce I get my intake in, and relocate my battery, I'll start cleaning up the driver side. Hopefully by summer time I can get the ball rolling on this car. I'm going to try and get these things sorted out by the end of summer...

      • TT/or Schrick Cams
      • Relocate the Battery
      • Clean up the driver side of the engine bay
      • BFI Stage 2 motor mount kit
      • Get the wheels powder coated
      • Auto Power 4 point roll bar
      • OEM/Rep projector headlights

      relocated the power steering, routed the headlight harness under the frame rail, took out the windshield washer res, and organized the mess behind the coolant bubble. When I get a UM flash, I'll remove the evap stuff, and get rid of the sai too.

      Since there was a cruise coming up this weekend, I was trying to get the wheels powdercoated by then. Unfortunately that isnt going to happen. So instead I decided to spray bomb them They actually turned out really freaking good



      Sorry for the hipstergram poo photo quality

      I put it behind the oil cooler in the fender well. All I did was bought new hosing, re-routed the two hosing that went through the PS, and bolted it to the lower oil cooler mount.

      They do not clear the calipers. I have a 3mm spacer, and they barley clear.

      Well, I haven't really been too much to the R, besides cleaning stuff up. I ended up taking the rear seat delete out, and putting the rear seats back in. I ended up trading the miros for some white grids...



      Wasnt too happy on the fitment, and the white. I sold them to a friend of mine who is going to run them on a white subaru wagon! I ended up getting a set of these...



      18x9.5 concave Rotiform NUE's. et25 front et10 in the rear. By far my favorite set of wheels yet on the car! Probably going to keep these for a while

      I like grids, but for whatever reason I thought they looked weird on my car.

      Well, I haven't done much to it besides drive it lately. I got a SAI delete plate from NothingLeavesStock. Stupid SAI pump was going out anyways. I did a wire tuck on the car for a few months, decided I wanted to re do it. So I brought all the wires back into the bay . Also having a little bit of a issue with my fans not working. I turned the a/c on full to see if they would turn on... got nothing. So now im going to buy the green top radiator temp switch to see if that's the problem. Hopefully it is, as the fans are common to take a sh!t.

      Some pictures of it...

      Still having fan issues. I got around to replacing the temp. sensor, fan switch, & fan control module. Still the fans do not turn on. After replacing everything, I decide to bring my wire loom from out of the frame rail, and put it back to stock for now.

      I'd added a few new things to the car in the last few months. Im going to re go over a few things just to get everything pieced together. Plus this is more or less just an update of random pictures i've taken over the winter/spring/summer of 2014.



      This is the last picture of the car with the RS's on it. I really liked the way these fit on it, even though they were 17s.



      The brakes were getting a bit warn down. So I bought some new StopTech rotors, and pads.





      Ordered a SMC check valve. This years winter took a dump on the check valve that came with the kit...











      Ended up buying my buddies Cargraphics...


      5x100
      18x8.5 et35
      18x9.5 et22









      Test Fit...









      Winter shoot of the wheels...









      .














      David and Danis Mk4's













      Helped David do a wire tuck on his bay, which turned out badass...
















      Oceans went into storage for a bit. Also picked up a stubby antenna...










      Ended up getting a Golf/GTI rear sun visor/shade...









      I got my fenders & hood back from Nick Storm! He shaved the side markers on the fender and painted both the fenders and hood...





      I also picked up a new Nardi Twin steering wheel. The grip royal wheel I had prior wasnt really doing it for me.























      .








      Took the car to Leavenworth with the homies..









      Also took it to Waterwerks on the green...











      And there was this dude... Hahaha









      Got to see Marks car in person. His car is most certainly badass...






























      I took the Cargraphis off the car to split them apart to get refinished. I ended up going to with a bright silver with a high gloss finish. Thanks to david for showing me the color...
