How did you find the fenders? I need a pair of '98-'00 fenders. Prefferably black.

Sorry to threadjack. I know nothing about drifting.

car-part.com Give some people on there a call, you can bargain with them, I ended up paying $242 shipped for a pair of UCF20 fenders from Texas and I'm in FL... This local guy wanted $350 a fender!!!

I'll start making some more progress when I get the UZI running better, ****'s getting annoying. I did caps/rotors/plugs/plug wires and some other stuff. I think the ignition coils or ignitors are bad. It's starting to brake up and buck...

I got the wheels back from getting powdercoated, I'm in love with these wheels! I'll post a pic a little later!

Federal SS595's would be good tires for those wheels they don't chunk up!

So I finally made some progress on the car, got a set of coils that my buddy made, some custom Bilsteins and Koni's, mono-adjustable with adjustable ride height perches and collars. The fronts have some nice H&R springs and the rears have some other springs on them, I got a set of Stance GR+ Pro springs which are 10/8 spring rates that will be on the car soon.


I am in the middle of making a trade, I'm trading my SSR's for a 1jz-gte and R154 tranny. A buddy of mine is selling me these battles, they fit pretty well, I rolled/pulled the **** out of my fenders so I wont rub his tires. I now need some spacers.



I finally got a chance to get the fenders on. I really need a new driverside headlight,
ALL of the tabs are broken on it. Its being held on by zipties now.

Also made a mounting plate to mount my Hydraulic Handbrake to my transmission tunnel, I'm tightening up the pull on the ebrake so I can keep my woodgrain trim and have the hydro popping out of it!

Did a fair pull in the rear, because the tires aren't mine, I'm just riding on em for a few days. I will need some spacers eventually haha.

I've recently gone crazy and started gutting the car.

So far I've removed:
Carpet
A Pillar plastics
Lower pillar plastics
Door Sil plastics
B Pillar plastics
C Pillar plastics
Rear seats
Rear seatbelts
Rear deck
OEM Subwoofer
Rear door panels
Spare Tire
Spare Tire cover
Spare Tire cover cover
Cover for the spare tire cover
All of the trunk garbage






I started removing the sound deadening from the floor only so far. I will be doing the Transmission tunnel and rear seat region. The UCF20 didn't come with any sound deadening in the trunk. The car is actually still pretty quiet inside suprisingly, its not bad at all!






A lot of my buddies are pissed that I bought a 4 door to drift, and I removed the rear seats! But ehh maybe one day!

Possible sponsorship with Chaser Aerodynamics is forming. I may have some of this on my car soon!



BN Sports JZX100 Chaser Aero for my UCF20.
