      Never created my own build thread. Figured I'd keep this thread updated as I continue with my car.
      Former Name: iTz JERSEY

      Day1



      Then I bought Stasis Coils and wheels. I thought ASA's were cool at the time.


      OEM 20th lip and skirts. Sat like this for awhile.


      Switched out the PO's pos unit with a double din. OEM+ ftw.


      Spacers.



      Shaved hood/bumper. FK 2-bar grill.


      Painted calipers a bronze/gold color to try and match turn signals. I think it came out alright.


      Had enough of my wheels. Straight up trade for Aristos
      Got almost a brand new 20th exhaust for free. Obviously I took it. Put it on the same day.


      Took the liners and sway bar out. Looking back, I wish I had just cut holes in them instead of completely taking them out.

      Bought matching ambers. Cruised like this all summer.



      During the summer, took care of some maintenance
      -Bought a stubby and floor mats

      Got some DZ1's from joshpwnstango



      Only ran them for a month or so before I began hibernation and went in winter mode.




      aledelic42.


      Took care of the headlights

      Before:


      After:


      Bored at work and spent several hours doing this.


      Thought stickers were cool. Before & After


      DZ1. 17x8.5 & 17x10
      Just ordered new Falkens. 205/45's & 215/45's

      Still currently in the process of refinishing my wheels. Yes, they're fake splits. I have DZ centercaps to cover up the ugly multi-lug.


      Just ordered Gold bolts/studs. Faces are candy white, bolts are gold, and lips will be polished.


      Stupid Kielen's car getting worked on


      Messed around with NickBroderick's old and new wheels




      Instagram:



      Ordered these today.

      Centers done. All those things that look like scuffs/scratches are just pieces of tape that haven't been peeled off yet.


      Rings came in.


      Then sanding.
      Starting with 600 since the wheels were pretty good to start with. Wetsanding 600, 800, 1000, 1500 and 2000.

      Then polish

      So yesterday I started to test fit the bolts that used to fit in the wheels before powdercoat...they don't fit now. Is this normal? Should I file down the holes? This doesn't seem right.
