Thanks :) I've been trying not buy as many parts as I am selling, but damn is it difficult... especially when a lot of it is stuff I tell myself should be done while the car is apart :lol:

Once I sort through my bought and to-buy list I'll post it up and add some more pics as well. I'm excited to get it done, hoping early May at the latest.

Anyone that would like to help fund this build, please feel free to browse me FS threads ;)

Sadly, browsing slickdeals introduced me to a $50 off $100 coupon code @ AAP that led to purchasing new DBA rotors. Wheels and rotors hopefully going to powder coater tomorrow!

Added mod list. Weather needs to get better so I can:

  • Change oil
  • Replace fender liner
  • Wash car and take pics

Decals/stencils are in. When I get back from vacation this coming week I'll take them to the powder coater and then should be able to see progress on the wheels and brakes.

Very excited to get this car ready for the upcoming driving season!

Not trying to be rude just curious :)
