    At first I really didn't get this, but the more it comes together the more I can start to understand where you're trying to take this. Props for the creativity, shame about the damaged wheel but I'm sure it's gonna look awesome once you get the full set of RPF1s on, Keep it up!

    Thanks, I hope they don't try to mess with me. I don't know how they could I opened the box and messaged them the next morning. I just don't understand how a wheel that looks like that gets boxed up.


    Anyways , In the meantime I picked up a cheap 98-00 ebay lip. I wasn't sure if it would fit but I didn't even have to trim anything to work.

    I need to figure out a cheap ramp solution for my rolled curb driveway before I rip it off backing out

    that subtle lip changed the whole look of the car in a good way.

    in for this on rpf1s all around.

    Yeah it definitely did, tbh I think i like this one more than the expensive Japanese ones. All of those I've seem like they "add on" to the bottom where this one wraps a little of the bumper. Not much out there for the '95 I like besides the Aimgain bumper.

    Naw, they function just like normal. the flare rides the door line as best as I could get it.

    I rotated the center point of the flares ~20-30 degrees counter clockwise to follow that door line and fit with the trim a bit better.

    The fronts are on! It needs some alignment tweaks but its getting there.

    So I went to get an alignment and they told me my LCA was bent, I waited around after hours until ~8:30 pm. The car went in drivable came out virtually undrivable after just a front alignment. The toe in is so bad the tires smelled wh


    so I got some godspeed adjustable camber arms, cut my losses and figured I'd take it back to my normal alignment shop that knows what they are doing. I thought I'd finally made a cool contact out here that was good with custom stuff without a million lectures or questions. Well that bit me in the ass.


    Only to find out that the bolts were seized to the sleeves on both LCAs and in the process one of my endlinks stripped out. I'm testing out some adjustable SC400 ones.





    just missing driving it right now, I'd definitely like to get some high radius metal flares in the future.

    Did a little more boring work, spark plugs & wires as well as cleaned the TB and intake manifold



    I checked the rest of my control arms and found another seized bolt on the toe arm so i said F*** it and got the rest of the Godspeed arms.





    I also installed the SC Techno Classic endlinks. Which are really nice, i wish I would have talked to them before buying the superpros for the front.




    While I was waiting for parts to come in I retrofitted my headlights with projectors. I just took a chance with the fluted lenses but the beam pattern is decent enough, plus the black housings just look tough!

    I did this for ~$70







    Don't mind my janky alignment here, i've fixed the toe a bit lowered the rear a tad and it is going in for a legit alignment in the morning.

    Really dig how this has come together. I get scared when LS people talk about doing a "performance build" but you're doing great with the execution. Great color too.

    Thanks! I do plan to put it on the track, hopefully next year when I can replace these tires and get the upper control arms & some other bushings refreshed.

    It still will probably be an auto unless I can get a move up career wise.

    I'm up in Lafayette. I'm planning on going to cars & coffee in Indy this upcoming weekend though.

    Be forewarned, The exterior is far from perfect. Until I have all the mechanical bits I want, I just call the roughness character.

    just some better shots, i have a gurney flap coming!

    I think my next project will be to delete the clutch fan, then mount electric fans to a MK3 supra radiator.





    On a more boring note I'm throwing a code, I think I need a new MAF and i'm replacing the fuel filter as well since i'm coming up on 100k.

    holy shit man this looks amazing! i would recommend spacing out the wheels to get a more flush fitment, possibly lowering the whole thing an inch, and then repainting the bottom half that matte black to match the flares. other than that, this looks so good!

    Thanks! The paint is the same believe it or not. It all needs a refresh though. I just got the paint to refinish my front bumper, it is in dire need of repair.

    In that process I'm planning on repainting the lowers & flares. I've thought about messing around with different color combos but there is a definite balance that has to be there for a two tone to not be tacky.


    I also agreed on the spacing, I actually like where the rears are but the front was too sunk. So I did space them out a bit more. I drove the car a few hundred miles for work and haven't had a chance to wash it yet.

    thanks for the positive vibes, I haven't done much just planning how i'm going to do the rest of the front suspension

    - Moog UCAs (maybe with superpro poly bushings)
    - Shortened knuckles
    - inner tie rods
    - 16k Swift springs w/ the longer shocks i have (car only has 5 threads left on the shock body all the way up and I don't feel great about it)


    anyways I found a decent low traffic spot to shoot. The landscape around here is boring AF, but I think I did find a good location for a pan, obviously I just need a driver.
