The car is coming together with the few parts it needed after it arrived from Japan a bit over 2 weeks ago. Ordered some parts from the states (front control arms, power steering pump, timing belt, new tires, and a couple other odds and ends). Bought the control arms refurbished and am having problems getting one on so it has to go back for another one this week. This is slowing the process down a bit, but it should be off the stands next weekend and in the shop for the timing belt and tire mount early next week.

Here are some pics taken today.

Cleaned the chipped paint out of the letters, still looks weird as I put tire shine on it, but once it dulls down it should look better

Getting a new exhaust tip welded up to the muffler (this and the control arms are really the only things that would have kept it from passing certification)

Can't get over the condition of the interior, the carpet throughout the car looks brand new, I don't think that anyone has ever eaten or drank in it

BF Goodrich G-Force Sport from thetirerack.com

Driver's seat

Dash is cracked a couple of places, but will suffice for now

The respray that this car got looks alright, but some places is a bit shotty

Resprayed all of the wheel wells because of red overspray, looks great now though

Can't wait to get it back on the road/certified, but I will be in the states when this happens:( , ah well, something to look forward to.

I did the prep and my dad did the spray, so I will have to check with him. I think we used 3 different kinds.

repaint [original owner paintedhalf the car after being keyed, rest of car looked like crap]
-idle stabalizer valve replacement
-cycling valve replaced

- sparkplug wires
- rear shocks
- 2 calipers [on your calipers - make sure you have those little rubber hats on the bleeder valves on the top....don't ask me why....:( ]
-wheels + rubber
-broken engine on the race track = rebuild time:
-MID darton sleeved block
-k27/6 turbo
- chipset for that set up
- 55lb/hour injectors
-fully rebuilt head
-aluminum JE piston balanced and blue print

if you are driving it stock, try some of the chips out there for your stock set up. they will make the car pull like crazy with your stock turbo.

no dyno yet - i plan on doing that one of these days where i have time.

another thing - make sure you keep an eye on your oil level, these things eat a bit more when they get older.

keep us updated.
