Welp, I have fixed most of the images on the thread from the horrendous PhotoBucket fiasco. Some of them are buried or deleted on my computer somewhere. Which I'll prolly never get around to finding...


I've got a big group package coming in the mail. Apparently I had the Christmas spirit and thought I deserved a present for myself. Or a large bill.....
Oh well. Here's the 1st bit I got a week ago.

-Muteki SR45R Burned Blue Open Ended Lug Nuts with Gold Rotating Taper Seat

*These are rather hard to capture a picture of the change in color. It's a very deep blue. Almost a dark purple. Still real neat. I thought it would accent the burnt titanium of the Tomei header and the Carbing braces as well as the overall color of the car itself.

UPDATE

Still have the car parked for the winter. We are still getting snow in sperts. Perhaps in a few weeks time, I will be able to get it out. My winter car (the Festiva) broke around Xmas. The kid I bought it from ripped out the ignition and put in a toggle switch system. Having to turn on 2 switches and flip on/off a toggle to get the starter to turn over. It's a mess. It never worked properly. It burnt out as I was leaving work one day. I think I'll just sell it and get a better one. It's more work than what I want to spend fixing the thing.

The Brz is sitting at just over 15,000 miles. Didn't do an oil change before winter. So, that'll be 1st thng to work on before I get it back on the road. Just ordered a few things for that:
-Enoes 0w20
-Pink HKS Oil Filter
-K&N Cabin Air Filter
-Center Console Arm Rest (Leather)
Opted for a leather one rather than Alcantara, because of how icky Alcantara can look over extended use.



This year for Christmas I decided to buy coilovers and a set of wheels. (which still haven't shipped yet) But I figure that's to be expected.

The wheels are:
Rays Gramlights 57 FXX Black 18X9.5 +39

The wheels are discontinued and I had a hard time locating a set. Had to call several places before I could find the last set from the factory. +38 was sold out completely.


Here's the coilovers:
Fortune Auto 500 Series
-Raceseng CasCam Plates with Radial Bearings
-Dust Boots
-HyperCoil Springs (stock spring rate)
-Locking Springs

I went with this coilover system because not just of the fantastic customer service, but because they are completely upgrade and rebuildible. The website was very informative and easy to navigate. I found all other company's websites to be hard to navigate and didn't explain how their systems worked.

So I have some pretty bad news about the wheels. Apparently the factory had never placed the order. As of February the order was still good and waiting to be shipped. So I'm not sure what happend. very bummed out! I really liked them over everything else. I find most wheels to be rather "busy" anything much over 5 spokes.

So if anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears.



Currently looking at:

Rays Gramlights 57 Getter

Volk Racing G25

WedsSport SA-10R

I like the simple 5 spoke design. They would look fantastic on a Skyline.
But I keep going back to the forked design I had originally picked out on the Gram Lights 57FXX.





So I had picked out a few wheels and found out that the 57 Getter's are discontinued.
Gram Lights 57XTC are to big.
Volk G27 and G25 are both 19in and to big for my liking.
I really liked the SSR GTV03, but they aren't getting imported to the US anymore.


So I settled with the WedSport SA-10R. I'm gonna get them powder coated to a better color, because the factory only does Silver, Black and White.
I am wanting a Copper color. Like a Brushed or Frozen Copper.

I'll just have to watch the used market for what I really want. Pretty big bummer

Yah! Those are it. I like them, they just aren't what I had my heart set on. I hope that doesn't make them dislike them to much.



I'm also wondering if these wheels in a copper color would be to bright on these. Perhaps a burnt bronze or a deep color that's subtle but doesn't stick out alot. A color like black doesn't seem to show much detail.

Got my wheels yesterday a day early even! Will post some pictures when I get a chance.

Got a lot to do now. Put on coilovers, get wheels painted, get several other parts painted. And also install several things

Wheel Day came!

It was strange ordering wheels and them showing up after like a week. Especially after having to wait for wheels you order never show up or even get shipped from the factory!!

Now I've already sent them to a local powder coat place. Took them in Monday. Cheaper than they quoted me. I can't remember the name of the powder I picked. It was like Penny Copper finish or something with "penny" in the name. So it's in between a light bronze and a darker copper color. It also has a flaked texture to it, rough like to the touch. Also added a Matte Clear to it so protection. I wanted a brushed finish, but the owner told me that's something his supplier doesn't do.
Then I had them powder my spoiler risers Matte Black as well.
They told me they are 2 weeks out. Perhaps next week they will be done.
Now I just need to get the coilovers and the Cusco lower control arms on.

I was debating if I should buy bushings right now since I'll already be under there.


Josh at Kamispeed helped me the whole time. He was very very helpful and I couldn't thank him enough!!

Wedssprt SA-10R +45

Wheel Update

Got the wheels back from powder coating. looks fantastic! The paint is a Wrinkle Copper with a matte clear.
might be kinda hard to keep clean, but I really like it. It goes with the deep blue of the car very nicely. I just made an order with a tire shop to get a set of Super Sports. I'll get them put on Wednesday the 19th. Still have to put on the suspension. I want to have the tires on to figure out the drop I want. Just going to fill most of the wheel gap, due to the bad roads and dead animals around here.

Took 2 quick pictures tonight for a friends request. The picture of the wheels are done with my dirty camera phone.
Got a big package this week for my 30th B-day. I'll take some better wheel and package pictures as soon as I can
