i feel like i remember talking to you in chatbox about this one. so much awesomeness work, only to be covered by a stupid body. me personally think it looks a million times better as just a bare frame. the body kills it.
Ya I've thought about tieing the roof to rear struts a few times. I probably will. The weight is really starting to even out front/rear and with the custom Feal's I'm getting it should handle pretty dam well
I have a powder coater but if I know myself it will never be "done" and powder coat doesn't touch up well. Just ditched the Ridgeline light idea and formed up a new front end. I need to weld it up but the 1 yr old wasn't cooperating.
Brah, if you have an industrial oven to fit that whole frame, you have been hiding out on us!
DIY is cool, but I am talking about having if professionlally done.
I go to a place that does whole car frames, BEAUTIFUL.

I purchased for 2k the catch is that it had a blown head gasket...12/1/14 also found some rod bearings were bad too. instead of putting more cash into the current 2.5 i went apeshit AND bought a jdm full sti swap and copious amounts of clean...
picked me up another chassis. $600 and it runs, mostly!
Still have the ej20g, gearbox, RobTune and iWire harness, stance coilovers (I had just bought to replace my godspeed crap) and lots of other parts... so here we go again!
From the ashes, she will rise!

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...
This is the second member's journal that I'm making, in part because nobody here pays attention to non-swapped RS journals, and partly because this really is the second phase of this car.
The old member's journal can be found here: Razor7's homebuilt 2000 RS
