XM1's build thread
 
It has been a while since my last post here :rolleyes:.Since my front got f++ked up in an accident with a petrol canister, i thought it would be good time to change some things here and there :icon38:
So i bought a ING'S +1 Type-E long nose for my yet existing ING'S LX sport kit already installed (btw thanks Adam @ Z1 for the good idea buying this front :thumbup:), ARC underpanel and several other little things (can't remember all :icon38:).So last week i finally had the time to install the front with my gf and here is the result. I personally think the Type-E front works absolutlly perfect with the LX sides.( oh and yes thats my Supra in the back of the first pic....that's the reason why my Z isn't done yet :D )

if you look closer to the last pic you will recognize that i changed the part which holds the engine harness in place with this:cool:

my first self creation out of titanium :thumbup: and yes it is real titanium ;)
you actually can't buy this part :p had some spare time over the winter and thought i'll give it a try......and it came out bada++
and if i tell you what kind of tools where used to build this you would't believe me :icon38:. i used a dremel and some drills and that's it :rolleyes:, but i think the fact that it was Titanium grade 5 did help a lot too, because there is a certain amount of aluminum mixed in. so the bending wasn't that hard,but it was a hard job.

so boys just let me know what you all think:thumbup:
oh btw here's a pic of the car before the accident and yes the stock wheels will be changed for the GT-S in the near future.

lgear080 07-19-2011 06:32 PM

whoa... what's that running today? are they still avail?

XM 1 07-19-2011 11:17 PM

not sure what i payed (about 1,5 year ago) but i think it was around 1600 euro or so....and no i don't think they are still available.as far as i know ARC went bankrupt about 3 or 4 months ago....but i had a conversation with Dino from Speedhunters and he told me that he heard that they are allready back in bussiness....but not 100% sure about that

XM 1 07-19-2011 11:23 PM

stickers had been removed...those where some leftovers from the guy i bought the car...the car was full of stickers :D

http://a4.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot..._7277277_n.jpg

it's only an NA Supra but therefore it's an JDM RHD :)
it def. wasn't the best choice to buy this car since it came from england (first japan, than england, than germany) and is pretty beat up and rusty as hell, but it's fun to drive and besides the Z my new project car.i'll post up a new thread for this one i guess :)

NA&CH 07-20-2011 06:15 AM

Can't wait to see it finished. That front flows awesome with the sides and rear. That Grupp-m needs to be removed and shipped to me :D I have the lower half need to find the top now :D

Keep it up.

Chris

XM 1 07-20-2011 09:52 AM

XM 1 07-28-2011 11:26 PM
