Great start man, BTW. Post more pictures.
for a school project i had to learn how to do something complicated in high school so my dad showed me how to paint a car etc and set me free and told me its your project. now you paint it. its the blue audi i posted above. it was from when i was younger. and since then ive learned everything else by trial and error.

well shes anything but natural now at this point
but youll love it, just scroll down. the fun stuff is now beginning. and yeah that was when i first tossed the coils on and with those hideous wheels it came with. the rotas on it now are temp wheels. should have new ones ordered next week or so. harness and everything else has been relocated/removed

couldnt stand the open diff after about 10 minutes. so it had to be atleast welded upfor the time being.
mid typing right now but theres an engine bay pic once i got the engine in with the stock twins etc.
couldnt stand the wheels anylonger so they also had to go. a buddy hooked it up with some rota p45r's for nice and cheap to get me by.
heres a pic from the last drift event i went to last fall when i finished it up. on and ps the 5 speed swap + 1jz swap took all of like 2 days. it was great. couldnt believe how easy jz series **** is to swap in and out compared to other stuff.
that was my baby but i also sold that off. i was plannning on being in jersey as of january first so i sold the titan and sold off the fd so that i could just poor money into the sc300 while i was away jacking up houses in jersey.
now. for the fun stuff
first issue i was having was that my car was to low and i was already rubbing after i raised it back up some . and at that point i didnt even get to do knuckles + other steeriing mods yet. soooooo the fender wells had to go; along with everything else!. she was wayy to heavy. no one likes heavy girls
also i wasnt planning on putting alot of stuff back in the car. i just wanted to make it awesome so i rid of the abs, and every extra hole in the engine bay basically. no bondo. i made it look mean, not a show car. but the quality and effort is there.
ill leave this here while i eat dinner. then ill post up the rest
up till this past weekend
heres a paint teaserrr
