January 2007
Replaced my tires with some Toyo Proxes 4, I love ‘em, scratched my gold on my rims though.

January 21, 2007
Jon and I swapped hatches

Because I get asked this alot too, I did the swap because it was cheaper to do the swap and get a Type R wing then to buy the Aspec wing package which comes with the mini lip to cover the preexisting holes from the original Type S lip. So I did the swap and later on got a Wings West Wing for 30 bucks. Free swap plus 100 since Jon used to have a type r wing but had sold it previously minus 30 for the wing = me gaining 70 bucks as opposed to be dropping down like what 300, 400 dollars for a Aspec wing w/ mini lip :p

Eric and I did some major seat swappage with our friend Bo and he and I both now have one driver's side REPLICA Red Bride Brix II seat...












Due to reading horror stories of what happens to the replicas in a crash I am going to be getting my Type S seats back, plus at the time I didn't realize they were replicas and I would rather have the real deal :p

Ok so yesterday Walter painted my lip for me and 3 hours later some stupid Altima kicked up some road debris and scuffed up my lip...grrrr
To top it off, some Friday the 13th bad luck, I scraped the bottom of my lip, no problem right...well apparently this tme it was cuz it made a small crack near my foglight..ugh!
At least Walter is repainting and fixing it for me :-D

Took a few new pics, picked up some Cusco Side Bars, got a B and C Pillar bar waiting to be put in and 3000K HIDs for my fogs so stay tuned =D







February 25, 2008:
Been awhile, got some JDM Replica Pedals from strutking.com. Progress rear tie bar from my best friend Khoi for my bday. Haven't yet had the time to put either on but when I do I will update with pics :-D
Also finally put in my 3000K HIDs for my fogs, don't have any real good pics of it though but I'll post the quicky I took for someone.
Also ordered some parts which should be coming in this week. Tial 38mm Wastegate .5bar. Rev-Hard Manifold. Competition Clutch Stage 4. Fast-Turbo Oil Line Kit. Mishimoto Black Intercooler. Hehehe....so it begins



May 6, 2008:

It's been awhile since I've updated. I just recently sold my Cusco Side Bars...it was a sad day but I needed to get more money for the turbo kit, although of course I couldn't help myself when I got the chance to buy signal racing cf mirrors and a cf hood so those are both some new additions, I also got Mugen Oil and Radiator caps for the hell of it and a Mugen Shift knob. I sold my DC Sports Tie bar and now have a progress one. I got my wastegate, manifold, clutch, and oil line kit in the mail, im still waiting on my intercooler...grr. Also ordered hotchkis endlinks like almost a month ago and sitll haven't gotten them in...my stock endlink broke, trust me it sucks cornering now haha. Also my Mugen lip is basically donezo, I am fed up with trying to fix it so it's going bye bye and hopefully a new one will appear this summer. That's about it for now, I will post new pics when I get the time

May 14, 2008:

Got my Rear Hotchkis Endlinks in, just installed them today. Also got my 60-1 in the mail the other day



May 15, 2008:

Rear Wiper Delete and C Pillar done today
