    Maryland. My girlfriends family is there. Her mom just survived cervical cancer and her sister and bro in law just had their second kid, so she wants to be close to them.

    I’ve actually owned the Tarmacs since I moved to SoCal. They’re the only 3 piece 16” set that 1552 built. I’m stepping them to 17”.

    Good luck with the move, but you need to move back to GA.

    Got word today that my new suspension should be in town by this coming weekend. Hopefully in a week or two I'll have that all hooked up, then I can get the new wheels built.

    AWWW YEAH, got this big box today. Now to get new hubs, camber plates, and rear upper mounts. Then I can test fit the centers of the new wheels to figure out how wide I'm gonna go.

    Got camber plates, hubs, and rear upper mounts in. Got the coilovers mounted up. Wheels are in the machine shop getting re-done to be able to fit BBS wheels and barrels, then they'll be off to powder coat. Also got a set of e30 sport seats that will eventually be re-upholstered. No way am I driving 19 damn hours again on top of trashed comfort seats with twisted seat backs.

    Also, my girlfriend and I split up. Gonna be spending another year in SoCal.

    Well I finally got the Wu Tang Falcon back on the ground. Stupid thing has been up on jackstands since I pulled the bags off in August. That pile of Dunlops is just waiting for wheels to get done.

    Tarmacs are done and on. Still gotta play around with the ride height and roll the front fenders more, but you get the idea. They're 18x9.5 and 11 with 3" front and 4" rear lips. No idea what the offset is.

    Yeah, these were the very first set of 3 piece wheels that 1552 ever built, and the only set of 3 piece Tarmacs built in 16.” I’m still on the fence about the color, I may get it redone at some point.

    Looking great man, don't usually like the super stepped wheels but on older cars I think it looks pretty good. Glad to see ODB making a comeback! Maybe mine needs one too.

    Thanks dude! It's good to be driving it again. My buddy Jake put a glasspack on it for me the other day and it cut the noise and drone down a ton. No longer going to have my ears ringing on the drive to Leavenworth.

    Can't wait to see it again on the new setup, we just booked the same Leavenworth place!

    I'll probably change the color of the wheels again after the car gets painted, but I'm sticking with these wheels.

    Awesome man! Can't wait to see everyone again.

    Spent the last few evenings going through this thread and changing all of my photobucket pics to flickr. Man, I can't believe how much this car has changed over the years.

    Picked up some black manual e30 sport seats a few weeks ago. The rails are a little narrower in an e30 than in an e28/24, so I'll have to get some adapters to fit them. Debating changing the color of the interior either by a full swap or just dying the leather. I'm really not a fan of the lotus white anymore, as it's an utter bitch to keep clean.

    One of my friends works at Emory Outlaws Porsche and he wants to pull all of the dents and do the rear euro bumper conversion for me, so I'm hoping that happens before Leavenworth.

    This made me way too excited for ODB's future.
