Ok, I finally was able to take pics and basically take some inventory of what I had, I was surprised by a few items I found.
1) New shoes, OG OZ Chronos. Need to have them resurfaced since all 4 have some light curbage on them. But after that, off to the powder coater for some GOLD treatment, and a "Cherry Blossom" red OZ sticker. They even came with OZ valve stem caps.
2) Picked up some new stopping power complete with knuckles (Which I didn't need). Need to take them apart, clean them and send them off to powder coating. Not sure if I'll do red, maybe orange, who knows.
3)Picked up some interior bits from JDM Gary. JDM Gunmetal radio and shifter bezals along with JDM lighted cig lighter. Also the ashtray will be going away and replaced with an "L" pocket which I have to cut the back off to accommodate the Tein EDFC and radio remote eye.
Also pictured is a new shifter joint since mine is very loose.
4) More interior goodness from JDM Gary, JDM road flare, visors, and a neat EDM Road Tax tag holder.
Thanks, it's the little touches that pop sometimes. Not sure if I'll install the fog kit since I always have the STi covers on. I've thought about the JDM corners but the not quite sure about the change over.
Lets get to the point.

Was fun while it lasted.

This is mostly the progress of my srp 2001 L coupe, but also some 98L and 2018 brz stuff.
I got the car in August 2011 with 100,500 miles. It was my first car, and it had lots of problems at the start. Almost sold it a few times, but once I read about all the swap stuff, I...
