    wanted those with a 18x10 +20 and a 285 but since its my DD ive decided against it :/ cant wait to see how it looks and also I AM GOING TO 2 AUTOX events this year with you lol.
    I'll hold you to that! And I decided to use the beautiful weather as an opportunity to get motivated on some work, despite doing 6/14's at work this week. Got to test fit the flares, work on the Wilwoods, and swap an axle on the 2008.





    I figured it out!

    Yeah buddy.

    Now for a question, red or blue?

    Garage Sale - Sparco Rev Plus Seat - Red - Speedway Motors, America's Oldest Speed Shop

    Garage Sale - Sparco Rev Plus Seat - Blue - Speedway Motors, America's Oldest Speed Shop

    It's so cheap (originally an $800 seat!), I'm going to get one as my main seat. You guys pick the color, because I would prefer black, but price beats everything.

    I just wanted to get it ordered before I left to go home tonight and went "I didn't order it!". So a single vote is all that matters. But yes, getting pretty amped to drive it and do a few events this year. I just need to figure out my transportation situation, as I no longer will have a set of street tires for this car...

    Also placed an order with McMaster for all the nutserts/bolts that I need for installing the flares. So pending freezing temps this weekend, I may get a jump start on putting those on...

    It's all good Andre, I would have followed up with a Blue vote as well.


    I don't like fixed seats though...I'd opt for an adjustable back seat of some sort.

    Good plan Mikie.

    I was lucky, gf said "I want a truck" then bought one. Now all I need is a race car and trailer.

    Fixed back seat, because race car. I plan on swapping this seat over to my Bimmer, which means it needs to be FIA certified for da racin'.

    I tried the raptor line, and all I got was a 2000 Chevy 2500.

    I just need a damn trailer. People on craigslist by me are selling "heap of a 1995 trailer that needs tons of work" for almost as much as I can get a new one for. So I may end up ponying up the cash for a new one, just have to see how broke I am after my wedding. (BTW, Congrats Mikie!)

    So another long term update. I've been spending most of my time working on the garage lately. I finished up the framing, started electrical work, and should be roughed in this weekend. Motivation to work on the car again is growing.

    My front suspension came back from JRZ. It had some leaks that were repaired under warranty (machining issues). So I started putting them back together, but took some measurements to send over to Vorschlag. I'll be getting some rear camber plates so I stop ruining the shoulders on my Hoosiers.



    Also, I've had 4 sedan knuckles/hubs laying around for quite a bit. Finally got around to tearing them down so I can take them to a local shop to have ARP wheel studs pressed in. That way I can just swap the whole thing over, since I'll be replacing the front axles anyway (putting the aluminum sedan control arms in). This will also give me some additional camber, since the JRZ's are drilled for a sedan. Never. Enough. Camber.



    And thanks to my kickass neighbor, I picked this up off craigslist for $175. I don't have the electrical finished in the garage, but this bad boy will power any air tool I can throw at it. Just needs to have the new pump, pulleys, and belt put back together, and it'll be ready to fire.
