of course. i go to the mechanic today to get a bolt put on cause i broke a brittle one when i was painting the wheels. AND HE SCRATCHES THE WHEELS!!! DAMMIT! they said they'd paint it, i figure touch up on my end is easier.

post wash.



LMK what you guys think. took a lot of work to get the VC that shiny and i thought about painting it, but i like it. id like it even more if it was an even shine, but even the buffing wheel couldn't get it just right. plus i was on a timeline.

opinions welcome. cheers.

oh shit son! it's wayne brady!

here's what i got in the mail this week... takin friday and saturday off just to work on the car... may not be enough.



still waiting on pictures of the "type-r" carbon fiber wing im thinking about buying from a few other guys who just bought one... also still waiting on the ASR subframe brace im gonna hook up. this is a lot of weight to add to the car so im thinking of getting a smaller sub in the trunk or doing like a rear seat delete.

suggestions/help with what ill need to put on the type-r sway bar/asr brace/lca's would be great thanks. gonna annodize and polish the fuel filter and a few brackets in the engine bay... plus i got a skunk2 battery tie down and a PJDM "radiator cooling plate" i put on and need to take pictures of. cheers.

oh and a name for my running log could be fun. the car's name is angela.

I think rear seats are somewhere between 20-40 lbs...its been a while.

If you want your car to become a "sleeper" then remove the passenger front seat (40lbs) and keep the rears. That way you can seat 3, they have tons of leg room, and the car can be a used as a semi like sleeper. I did this in high school..first with criticism, then with happy customers, the girls liked it.

I dont think that the whole setup will add much weight though...I have comptech's setup on my car, the weight is greatly outdone by the handling upgrade.

Good luck with the build,
