Well my car has been through alot this past year and I figure it'll be appropriate to have a build thread for the things to come.
A short time-line
:
Day she was bought 07/03/2008

Installed the VF Stage 2 supercharger







June 5th came along and some drugged out lady chased me down on 95 and rammed my car multiple times for no reason whatsoever. I got both cars to a stop (her still trying to push my car), got out, broke her window with my fist to stop her car, and grabbed her keys. Fun day

Hatch and bumper damage:




Went to a very reputable body shop and the fabricated a mild boser, shaved my hatch, and I ordered front and rear OEM Euro bumpers from TMTuning.com, which they painted. I also installed my Helix reps and ST coilovers after that.


Note that the whole rear end is sealed to prevent rust behind the bumper









I didn't like how the rears didn't go low enough so I picked up some FK rear springs found on all higher-end FK coilovers





__________________________________________________________________
That brings us up-to-date with the progress. For the winter, I picked up these:

and will be picking up this:

and turning my interior into something that looks similar to this, minus the center console being done.

With all this extra work the Borbets have to go and when Ryan can hurry his ass up with re-polishing these, I can go pick them up!
Just kidding buddy, take your time, they won't see pavement till it's 60 degrees out lol



As far as that goes, I'll keep you guys updated with pics on the install of everything. I'll also be cleaning up the bay a little but nothing drastic until next winter

Re: FV-QR (bostoneric)

It's still up in the air. Depends on how well the wheels fit in the front since they do poke and I do like driving low...not looking forward to messing up fenders

Nice glad you didn't get rid of the car

I am too. I would have missed it way too much if I did and that would be a huge regret in my life. She's not going anywhere for a long time

Bolan- you'll have them soon enough bud http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
