Figured I would start a build thread to show you guys what we're working on for 2014. Sorry in advance for the mostly iphone/instagram pictures.
I'll start off from the beginning and bring you up to date. Started off with the suspension. BC/UAS setup and Megan arms in the rear. Cut the shock towers in the front and had it sitting pretty much where I wanted it.
Found a great deal on some Weds Kranze Cerberus so I refinished and relip'd them to 18x10/11. Got the front sitting flush with a spacer and tucked the rears and rocked this look last year.
Got pretty bored with the look and decided I wanted to go a lot further so I picked up a daily and started gathering parts for the build.
New additions for next year:
- Wald Sportsline kit
- SSR SP3's 19x10.5/11.5 (5.5 and 6.5" lips)
- LED tails
- Clazzio seat covers
- 326 Power Front RCA's
- Full repaint with radius'd and flared fenders
My seats were torn and gross so these really brought the interior back to life. And they're a darker color which is pretty cool. Still some wrinkles in the pictures but they're mostly gone now.
Test fitted the wheels and kit
Lots of cutting and hammering later we got the rear sitting where I want and stocked to mock up the fender flare. Should be about a 2.5-3" radius.
Lots more to come!

OK first let me preface these questions by stating for the record that I am:
A) Older (44)
B) Probably out of touch with some car trends
C) Not judging at all
But I have to ask:
- How do you drive a car like that without bent rims, body damage and early suspension problems?
- Isn't the ride much worse than stock?
That said I really like your seat covers! First time I have seen seat covers that I liked. Do you mind if I ask the cost and how difficult is install?
So yeah get off my lawn, stay outta my rose bushes, et al
For the record, I do not feel that old and the Amon Amarth death metal I am listening to while typing this says hello
In the thread, he mentions that he "opted for the BC/UAS setup" which means he ran coilovers with air bags, in place of the springs. By doing this, he can raise up to get over speed bumps, and other obstacles, while being able to break necks at shows.
Speaking of which, let's see that trunk setup!
