  18. I need that paint code geeze thats beautiful
  19. i need to take them to the body shop because he didnt like the zg flares i brought him so he is making steel flares and wants the wheels and tires to form the flares around them see my fiance is no help lol i had it narrowed down to 2 colors and she suggested the burgandy and the teal so i played with it in photoshop and like those options to XD as for the build im happy its starting to roll again its been in the body shop for 2 years at this point its difficult to work on when its not here thanks :) she is fucking awesome i honestly never thought id ever want to get married never really saw the point till she came along
  20. that didnt take long back in the air why you may ask? because i needed to replace the intake manifold gasket and i had to put it in the air to get to one freaking bolt that attaches the intake to the trans yeah definitely needed it
  21. tires are mounted on the fronts cant wait till monday when i can go to the body shop and put them on rears are still a little taller then the front maintaining the muscle car look i like bolted the hub back up and bolted a wheel to it this is as low as i can go on the coil overs before the tire contacts the adjustable spring perch will be a little less once i cut them down but ill still have over half the collar of adjustablity which will be plenty cause im not going super low aaaaand since im still undecided on color i played around in photoshop and looking for opinions on on paint colors purple dark teal burgandy or blue
  22. ive been having an inner debate about what color to paint the 610 between nissan san marino blue and a dark purple this is making me wanting to spray it purple
  23. my front wheels have arrived look how much deeper the rears are my wiring harness also showed up now all im waiting on is my gauges from speed hut and my brakes
  24. So as im starting to mock up my coil overs a question comes to mind the sleeves dont fit tightly to the strut tube what prevents them from spinning on the strut? I know the weight is taken by the perches welded to the tube and they dont move when weight is on them but what about when you lift the car and are trying to adjust them i can see that you weld the collar on in a way that the gland nut kinda locks them down but is that really enough?
