Cedricís 10 Series Build Thread

My friend took pictures of my car with the TC105s the other day, and they turned out pretty well.



Additionally, I purchased a Tomei Type 80 catback from FTSpeed, and I got an email back from them saying that it would arrive in late September. Iím a little upset that itís gonna take months for it to arrive, but itís fine I guess.

Probably should have just bought solid mounts and did some maintenance in hindsight.

Did some maintenance at ~78,400 miles yesterday. Did an oil change and replaced the trans and diff fluid. I got ARP studs to replace the OEM ones and I got some Type 200 ATE Brake Fluid, but I still have do bleed my brakes.



The pinch welds are really shitty I donít know if thatís just my car, or if itís just like that for every FRS.

Decided to get new OEM Rotors and Winmax W3 pads. I was considering an even crazier compound, but I decided against it. Too bad the pads are in backorder for at least five more weeks.

Cedricís 10 Series Build Thread

Iíve seen people put stickers on the dash, but since have a electro-luminescent dash, I decided to not put any stickers there, but to instead put it on the glove compartment



Itís not a real JDM OPTION sticker, but I wish it was

The pinch welds def get bent easily on our cars, and actually most cars that get set on cast iron stands. Some people prefer to roll their cars onto ramps instead of setting them on stands to do fluid changes. You can get rubber caps for your jack stands to prevent pinch weld damage, but once they are bent there's really little point.

No new updates with the car, but I bought A LOT of parts, but they wonít be coming for a few more months since everything is backorder because of COVID-19.



Thereís not too many 86s in my area, but there is a clean E39 M5 thatís always parked next to my work place.
