Alright, well since that photoshoot a lot has happened. I finally got settled into my new house, and started on my main build up. First off, I decided it was a good idea to get a decent reliable turbo build for the KA. I also apologize about the instagram pics coming, can't find originals lol.
Then, decided fuck that lets just go SR. I do like KA's in a sense, but I got a great deal on an SR so I sold everything and swapped on over. But in that time, I sold the RPF1's and bought some Blitz 03's to be rebarreled.
During transit, they lost 1 of the 03's. No insurance, no nothing. So then I had (2) 17" 03's and (1) 18" 03. Decided screw trying to find one more 18" 03, and I traded the two 17" 03's for some Gramlight 57D's.
Then, a fire happened in Colorado Springs which caused chaos throughout the city, not to mention it was about 10 minutes away from my work.
Here was the fire the day before it entered colorado springs, this is the view from my work.
And here's the picture the next day:
Then, smart me decided "hey, lets go see it up close!"
Luckily, got out with no harm done and no real damage to the city other than a few houses.
Back to the build. I got a set of 4 03 replica wheels as spares
Went to a buddies first drift event with his Silvia, here's a few pics:
Got myself a new exhaust
Got a Buddy Club rail and a bride seat
Finally picked up my SR
Started cleaning it up and buying mods, IE: oil pan, intake mani, etc.
Pushed the car out for a quick cleaning with my buddies Silvia
4 car garage ftw
Then I tore apart the SR to check for any damage, and yeah, sure enough, spun rod bearing. So bad the crank was trashed along with the rod and cap. So, I said screw that, lets build this bitch.
And the final progress:
Got myself a new SR radiator and GP Sports cooling panel
Digital S13 cluster with HUD
Bought some Equips also, just hangin out with my other parts. New gaskets, SPEC clutch, Eagle Rods/CP Pistons, bearings, crank, downpipe, etc etc.
Even more equips... (i have 6 equips total now lol)
And thats basically where I am today. The block is getting ready to head to the machine shop for a good cleaning and honing. I will update you guys as I progress in the build!
Oh, while doing this I've been playing with my daily drivers. Here's all my dailies I've had in the past few months haha.
Here was my '00 HX. Bought a legit CTR front clip for it and little interior bits.
Ended up trading it for a DB8 that was all 'herrafrushbreh'
Here was the car when I got it:
Then after a month or so, had it looking like this:
Basically got wheels, mudguards, db8 visors, DB8 ITR spoiler, etc.
Traded the DB8 for a CX hatch and an EK hatch with a built motor
Here was the EK, a bit rough
And the CX after a few mods of my own (was bone stock when I got it)
Sold the EK, sold the motor, then traded the CX for my current daily, which is a b20B powered EJ1
Thats where I am! Sorry for all the pics haha
