      Went down to the shop after work to yank out the old cup kit, 16 minutes later..





      Headed down the street to pic up a set of old style weitecs that go stupid low, then headed back to the shop for a frame notch and to throw the coils on

      put the weitecs on today, and the fronts dont go as low as id like, so they are for sale, 400 firm, adjustable dampening, they are not seized, im sure with smaller tires they would be a bit lower but i had them on my last car for a day and wasnt happy, ride EXCELLENT tho




      went and picked up a set of mercedes 8 slots with tires and adapters for 350$ to realize the car they were on was swapped to 5 lug, so i got a full vr 5 lug swap for FREE BITCHES!

      Basically got the car as far as I could and it will be headed to the body shop over in new Hartford tomorrow when I get out of work, and I'll let him finish it up, I should have it back about this time next week then it's hustle hard for h20,

      Thanks to Lucas aka dubfresh for doing all of the body work in the bay. And for talking me into full shaving it in the first place, I didn't plan on going this far, but.. **** happens

      Well finally got the car today, long story

      Anyways, started getting it back together, got a reasonable amount of work done tonight, motor should be going in tomorrow if all goes well





      Started on the brake lines



      All done, just have to pull the master off to bleed that









      Most of the interior going back in





      This is going to be a nightmare, got the car as a shell so it was already torn apart
