I bought the car. Yay!

There were some very light modifications I about immediately did.

  • HKS Super Hybrid Air Intake Panel Filter (70017-AT020) Air Filter
  • Zeta Performance Purple Silicone Intake Pipe Without Noise Generator Openings (Gotta remove that sound piping)
  • Some cheap license plate relocator I got on eBay
  • fteightysix Helix Crystal Clear Front Bumper/Side Marker Lights Side Marker Light
Yep, that's the bone stock FR-S we're all familiar with.

That took a turn fast. Or should I say, she took a turn fast, directly in front of me, without yielding to oncoming traffic.

It gets better.







It's ok. Things break. I got to have a lot of fun pretending I had a drift car and playing with drift stitching. Meanwhile, everyone assumes I rear ended someone or hit a guardrail again, but this time with a car instead of my head (long story). I'm left without my car for entirely too long

This is where it gets fun again.

I add the following parts:

  • TWS T66-F 18x9.5 +45 wheels
  • Michelin Pilot Super Sports 265/35/18
  • Fortune Auto 510 Coilovers w/ Swift Springs 8k/7k
  • SPL Lower Control Arms
  • Raceseng CasCam - Caster + Camber Plates With Spring Perch Caster / Camber Plates
  • Grimmspeed License Plate bracket License Plate Holder (to replace the eBay one that got rekt)
  • fteightysix Helix Crystal Clear Front Bumper/Side Marker Lights Side Marker Light (again, one was lost in the accident and were replaced with OEM ones by the repair guys)


















Also a bunch of people on /r/ft86 found this funny for some reason.

I'm subscribing to this, definitely. Good job so far! And you picked the best color too

What else do you have planned?

Oh no! I was typing and didn't see the accident post or anything after that!

I had my car a month. So far, due to a crash, it's been in the shop for a week and a half! I can barely remember what it looks like anymore!

Haha it's all good! I figured a post for each actual update would be a good idea. Heck if I know.

You made me look. Neither of those gentlemen are myself, actually (I'm behind the camera), just good friends who like working on cars as well.
