Last picture of my car Plastidipped.
Click the image to open in full size.

Then between the time of removing the Plastidip and stuffs, I got into a accident 100% not at faulty.

Since the accident, I had one broken foglamp and one messed up high beam so I removed them.

So I removed the damaged bumper, and slightly tweaked the bumper support to somewhat fit my car. and installed my spare primer bumper, which I actually like the non SC4 lip look.

Also finally did my plugs, cap, rotor, and valve cover gaskets.

You also might notice, me having different rims. Mainly due to all of my varrstoens cracking.

Repaired my varrstoens for the last time, before I finally sold them. But here it is with a 8mm spacer. I also installed extended studs somewhere in the past year.

What up bro! With the tie rods switch and the knuckles the cars angle is crazy! When I do u turn it feels like my rear wheels don't move at all.

I'll hit you up in a couple of days, when I finally get my last 5spd parts. Haha, just fw bolts and a slave.

Yeah, from what scot101 told me, you can switch sides of the tie rods, so basically left on the right and right on the left. And due to the design of the tie rod end actually gave me some clearance.

We'll I was told that they were supra upper control arms.. But if it isn't is ok, all my bushing are either solid or poly now.

Also forgot to update, that I adjusted my exhaust which is a pita, I moved it more upward for clearance.

Also reinstalled my hi beams.

For the rear roof I know it is hic, and the windows I have no idea. I got them for free from the guy I bought all my suspension off of.

Thanks for the bump guys.


I haven't updated in a while, but in between then I finally converted my car to manual. Took my 1.5 days, pretty good considering I did it on jacks with no help.
