2012 planning begins to start completing my build for 2013. Taxes comes and goes and here is what I have been currently working on.
Took the Weds off and sold them
Here is what the wheels went on
I upgraded my single compressor setup for dual Viair 444c compressors and ripped out my trunk liners to start the rebuild process.
I had my eyes on a set of Work Meister S1R's for a long time! I didnt get it in the finish that I wanted but these are pretty pimp. Here is the test fit of the fronts 19x9.5
Here are the rears 19x10.5
Had them wrapped in some inexpensive tires because shes not daily driven anymore
In the mean time, I purchased an Accuair E-Level kit from SD.IS, Megan Toe arms, Tracktion Arms, Upper camber Arms, and Lower Control Arms for the rear. Miscellaneous air bag parts, MyRide rear diffuser, Vertex front lip for the sedans, and Cross drilled/Slotted rotors.
I began to rip out the existing manual paddle switches and replaced it with my Dakota Digital Gauge
Mock up of the MyRide rear diffuser that will be molded
I hacked up the vertex front lip for the sedans and fitted it to my bumper. My boy at Affiliiated Autoworks will be molding it once the car goes in for paint.
Moved my attention to my suspension. Installed the rear links over the last weekend and then moved on to my trunk. My stock links removed
Here are some comparison pictures of the stock versus Megan links
I had an issue with my lower control arms and my strut endlink. I had to shave it down about 2-3mm for it to fit.
While doing my links I also threw on my rotors, I plan on painting my calipers for now. BBK is not really in my future, but who knows
I had a totally different plan with my trunk but due to limited space and and seeing ISCJonny's trunk setup, I decided to go a similar route. Its a mess, but here is my first mock up of whats coming.
Figured I needed some insulation to lessen the noise that Ive hear from my compressors. Purchased fatmat dynomat from Amazon. Pretty cheap and not bad stuff.
Wrapped my base board in carpet material
A good friend of mine who owns a graphics business added Hydro Dipping to his arsenal so we dipped my tank in Benjamins to show off his work.
