Love the v8 and body kit and color. Not a fan of the stance or wing. Too Goddy for me. Each to their own.

So ive been busy lately and sorry it's been awhile. But i do have some updates and some good news.

I recently procured a Camaro SS for a pretty good deal with running motor and all accessories including power steering, ac and of course computer and wiring harness. Essentially everything i would need given that some stuff here and there will be replaced. Details of the donor car and pics to come but this is gonna save me alot of hassle as well as money down the road.

After my advancement exam that have coming up, i will begin studying the LS swap thread more thoroughly and by then i should be done settling in to my new place and found out where im gonna do all my work at.

Furthermore getting more inspired through various cars to get away from the stance scene and its only gonna be a matter of time before the wheels are gonna be for sale or trade as well as the stock seats...if yall get where im goin with this.

Again thanks for following..more details coming soon

So what a month it has been, between random tasking at work and a financial snag i had neglected updating my thread here.

Won't go into crazy details but here is what has been accomplished as of late:

New braces added on for the BCL wing..made the thing wayyyy more stable especially considering its height. But eventually i will be looking to switch to a diff wing down the road (possibly garage mak or the RB wing depending on how it looks)

New leather was also put on the seats and they came out amazing!

However considering my overall plans for the car i decided that I am going to sell them and for now replace them w/ some new PBM bucket seats that im getting for an amazing deal (also been sitting on some brand new buddy club rails and sliders i couldn't sell ha)

Also was pretty much able to get my trunk set up finished..only have the one teaser pic (don't know why i hadn't taken a full pic). Wrapped zenclosure box, wood flooring with luggage stands (for my gear bag) and wrapped the strut tower pieces. Pics of tank setup after we install the custom lines ordered and respray the tank.

Also came into possesion of a new daily after trading in my auto integra plus a lil bit of cash on my end. 99 Lexus GS300 w/ now 163k on it and super clean! Better Pics to come!

Other than that i will be posting my wheels up for sale eventually since ill be stepping back down to 18's, gotta tune the suspension some more as well. I'll be adding on splitters to the front and sides and i'm also planning a special half bumber setup for the rear or at least a different rear diffuser but we'll see and also a new hood. Also still contemplating just rebuilding the DE in the car and charging it for the sake of money and labor cost but still tryna research and make up my mind.

Thanks for your patience and again i will try not to wait so long between updates and i appreciate the follows, holiday season will be a lil slow so we'll see how it all goes.

loving that color. is it darker than brickyard? looks more towards the interlagos side. I see more brown resemblance. Still digging it. You should paint those calipers orange or same shade as the lip. Bet that would look boss.

Id have to see side by side to compare but no it's definitely a brown shade, it's macadamia metallic that i got from the Porsche lineup and i LOVE IT. Been considering redoing the calipers for sure, but i may be changing up the wheels also so we'll see ha

You know you wanna keep the DE

The sound of the DE is so amazing. But I suppose you're looking more at the big picture. Down the road it comes to how much do you want to spend on the build :P
