I think as i get older i worry more about the small things.

I bought plastic clips to replace the missing ones under the hood & fender area. I've replaced the door handle w/ a working one & i've also replaced the passenger side window weather stripping because there was too much wind noise at speed.
love that color, your car looks great....

Very well done thread sofakiing! You did a great job showing your cars over a timeline. You have put together a fine group of mods including all of the JDM items on your newest Z! All of that work makes your car a real stand out from the rest.

* I'm glad that you got the mcr hood, I'd imagine that you are going to love that piece alone; you will get a lot of compliments. The seats look great also!

Took a 3+ hr trip down to El Paso last weekend for Spring Fest 2016. Scenery on the way down was incredible, once i was out of the flat part of New Mexico.

IMG_0279 by sofa king, on Flickr





I thought id get there a little early (20 min) but i was maybe car 100 in line. holy ****! When in reality i was 4 hours early to when the show actually started. I think the line ended up being near a mile long.



IMG_0299 by sofa king, on Flickr



Couldn't have been put in a more perfect spot. The paint drew quite a few looks. 'it looks purple right here, but right here it looks brown' lol

IMG_0288 by sofa king, on Flickr




Lots of quality cars there. Awesome to see other people appreciate your vision.


IMG_0592 by sofa king, on Flickr



After a long & hot day, it was time to make the 300+ mile trip back home!!



IMG_0617 by sofa king, on Flickr
