    Default Update #3

    Promised this friday, its now sunday. Sorry for the lag. Been crazy busy lately.
    15 units of full time School started two weeks ago, got an internship acceptance a month ago, have two jobs now, and my last apartment lease ended Aug 27th and was forced to find a new place and move into.
    It's been quite the hectic past month one could say.



    But without further ado here is Build Thread Update #3
    Play some good tunes grab your popcorn and Enjoy










    Excited to show you all...
    Its been a Long Time Coming










    Lets ease our way into things?

    Pretty ecstatic, got an internship as an engineers apprentice for a company that makes neuroscience lab equipment

    They had a huge array of machines in their shop and I was lucky enough to have our lead engineer guide me in using the shop drill press to fix some things on my car



    Remember how the double din center wooden pieces didn't have the full amount of cut-outs (options)? Lets fix it






    before; a two piece, half ass jb welded together, vinyl'd piece



    after; a somewhat OEM looking piece that was home-made



    With that, the interior's going to get a lot of needed attention relatively soon.
    Mobbed it to a local junkyard and saw these two




    The S-class was a low end Lorinser spec and it hurt to see - sad day. The W210 had fake mono's I could've copped for $200 but opted not to

    Afterwards, got back home and started to make moves





    Rear tires were shot. At about this time, we were coming upon a huge Southern California meet called, Big Socal Euro, which is all European cars.
    I've been attending for the past 5 years, and this years no different; Show up and show out
    This finally prompted me to make some serious moves with the car

    and oh some serious moves were made



    Front lips were horrible (you can see the bends in the photo above) so they were finally taken to a professional and straightened as much as possible and finally able to be rolled on.
    While I had them all off, they received new tires all around!
    Up front Delante's in a 215/35 & in the rear Liolions in a 235/35
    (side not, it was the first time in my life I've ever purchased brand new tires... woah)




    Finally having it all thrown together, it prompted a quick impromptu photoshoot










    Been a long time coming
    Big Socal Euro '18







    Cruised in a couple hours late with my buddy Samy and his beautiful E60 545/6



    Our benz bois section was holding it down



    Provided is some crappy media coverage of the show-cars that attended












    You might remember my buddy Kyle from earlier

    He traveled 1,000 miles north to drop off parts to a buddy in a sale, and while he was there he picked me up some authentic euro goodies to bring the 1,000 miles back home




    Euro spec S210 AMG tail lights!

    I originally wasn't a fan, but as soon as I mounted them I was sold

    More on that later



    Yes if you thought that white car looks familiar, @SD_210 making an appearance!











    Got our group together for some lined up shots





    Went super JDM and rocked the one sided AMG smoked tail for a couple days



    this next shot makes me so happy, static almost tucking front and rears




    and somehow cruising in the slow lane im still able to pull massive mpg's this was on level roads!



    My last apartment lease was up August 27th, of last month and so I had to find a new place to live (and hopefully cheaper)

    and one was found! complete frat house though. Hot tub on the front yard, dead grass, couch on the driveway... completely embarrassing but its hopefully going to become home
















    My current camera sucks at lowlight
    Some low-light shots that suck









    Always have been into photography, since I was a youngin'. Purchased my first Canon (a t2i) at 15 and used it for my first build thread. Fixed it when it broke, dumped money into mods, and the green lantern software, it was my baby. When I (insert unfortunately) sold my first BMW Wagon, I splurged on a basically brand new Canon 80D and bought it from a legend photographer. He cut me a huge deal and allowed me to afford it, we chatted for quite literally four hours and I just came to buy a camera



    the jump from t2i to 80D was like a E320 to a E55 AMG. It was night and day... I shot the entirety of the earlier shot photos of this build thread with that camera. Had it for about a whole year, before one month's rent came. I got my car booted for parking tickets and the total was $650. Finally caught up to me (lol)... So I was forced to sell it, literally the worst decision I've made in a while. I sold it for a couple hundred more than I got it for (I got it for a steal) and payed off the tickets, helped out with rent, and purchased a canon t5i, a slight improvement from my t2i. It literally feels horrible to be back in an E320 camera... Which brings us to these shots, the low light quality is pure ass.

    So without further ado, enjoy these E320 camera shots that came out like ass of a decent looking E320














    Tis it for this build thread update! Hopefully you enjoyed, like I said, I'm excited to share this with you all, its been a long time coming

    Great update, love the car. (The front bumper fitment though..).
    Do you have scrub issues on the front when turning?

    What is the front splitter on the white s210?

    Save the scrap yard S class next!:-)

    Thanks duders! The before and after's side by sides are going to be crazy... need to find a stocker silver s210 for physical side by sides haha!

    and I didn't like the tails before mounting, but once mounted they had me sold! Its the contrast on silver IMO. But thanks for the feedback! Bumpers been fixed too

    Much appreciated, sincerely! Yeah the front bumper was an easy fix I was too lazy to actually fix. Tis fixed now though!

    The lip on @SD_210's wagon is a Brabus lip! Things so beautiful

    and the thought popped up, but then took off as quick as I looked into it more.

    The thing needed some serious work and most of the lorinser stuff was garbage

    RIP though haha!









    Like prior mentioned, have gathered enough photos for another thread update which should be coming in the next coming days, I'll shoot for friday!

    Thanks
