These past 3 days have FLOWN by workin’ on the car straight after work till about 2am each night

Here’s another update!

Started stripping down my OG chassis….:'(

All wouldnt be possible if it wasnt for friends!! Here’s Ryan, he’s loosely affiliated with the control freaks!…lol

This shit looks familiar from about 3 months ago huh?….sucks i gotta to it ALL over again

Stripped so bare,…if only my car had WiFi connection

Wire-sketti…..

….Didnt taste so swell

Couple shots of the shop,.. I couldnt resist. Makes me wish I had more moneyz!

Check out JDMHookup if you see anything you like!

what a problem to have,.. too many motors and body kits cluttering up the shop

CHeck out my boso-camber!

Front subframe swapped

Poor car, has seen better days

“They are twins,. that is why”

If I didnt have work in the morning, everyone was down to pull an all nighter so i could drive it to work today! While that would have been cool, call me debbie downer, but I just didnt see it happening honestly…lol

Plus it’ll be alot easier to stitch weld, clean up the wiring, and paint the interior while everything is out. But nonetheless, it still isnt too far away from being on the streets,…at this rate at least!…lol

MORE TO COME!

UPDATE AUGUST 4th:

Lots has been done in the past 2 days but nothing worth making a new post or putting up pics.

I took all that wire-sketti you can see up there, and layed it all out and organized it. Took out my turbo timer, boost controller, and all my gauges i had. I’ll just rewire those after i got the motor in and wired and turned over. They’re not going to be too important right now anywho so…chyeah.

Chassis wiring is all in it place tho. Fuse box mounted, harness’s all laid out plugged and ready to play.

Next on the agenda:

– Pull the SR out of my old chassis.

– Cut the tubs and core support off and swapped to the new chassis

– KA installed ( maybe before the core support it put on )

-drivin’ home!

Back at getting ballz deep up in my car again. Lastnight me and a couple buds got alot of work done tho!

ALL wiring is removed from the new chassis, going to swap over my custom wiring.

About 75%-ish of the sound deadening was removed via air chizzle (shit does work!).

Today I’m going to find a way to get my old chassis up to the shop and swap subframes, then pick up my new KA I’ll be rockin thanks to Domi!

(posting from my phone, dnt judge me)

UPDATES:

Got the og duece up to the shop and got the subframes swapped over. A lift and air tools go along way! This was a 12hr project in my garage!…lol
Took about 2 hours lastnight.

Shits cruising, but still soooooooo much to do!

Nick Quigley, a dude from our local forum posted these pictures from last night. we have a local parking lot event about once a month, so everybody came out to burn off some leftover tires.

here’s matt (actually we call him meat) and omar having some fun doing tandem.

domi brought out his car and drove it.. i think everybody else on our team drove it too lol.

mr. rob made it out in his jzx90, and was looking good as always. i actually took a ride with rob and i totally get the appeal of 4 door drifting, it’s really smooth and planted!

our friend chris recently got his rb20 hatch running, and was looking really good.

johnny was out in his now naturally aspirated fb. i think johnny goes through more motors than anybody around, and still rarely misses a local event. the dude’s a trooper.

i was on a mission last night to finally kill the wanli tires on dan’s orange wheels, so i could take them off my damn car already! by the end of the night i was throwing a lot of sparks, and the car was really slippery, pretty fun though ^^

the really cool thing about drifting on stock wheels is that when the tires blow, you just keep going! fuck it!

and yeah, i did a little love tap on the wall. i was able to hammer it out pretty easily though. no biggy!

Mark’s at it again with a new video of MDU Rd. 3. You’ll see Alex in there in his green s14 w/ its cf hood, as well as me battling it out with Danny Thompson to win a cage. Danny won, boohoo, life sucks. Just kidding ^^ I had a ridiculous amount of fun driving and hanging out at this event!

check out mark’s other videos too!
