GHETTO STYLE. s13 tension rod conversion!

I had a particular photo shoot thing today at 3pm which required my car to move around and it didn't help that the SPL tension rods still aren't here, not to mention the lack of an exhaust(still building). So I had to borrow Matt's for the time being, which also allowed me to have things ready for the SPL's.

This car is really a pain in my dick. It looks simple (well, it is) but it took me practically all morning to do and figure out. And when it came time to finally drill the brackets for the new bolt, I called up about 6 shops in the area since I didn't have a 14mm drill bit nor did I have a drill press. One shop picks up telling me to come over, only to tell me that I'd have to wait until Sunday after 30 minutes of questions and answers. So fuck it. I eyeballed with a Unibit and it turned out just fine.

Fuck itttt

retarded monster?

A cold week indeed

scooting in the rain just isn't fun

Just popped these pbm rack spacers in. Had them laying around for a year or two but now's the time since with the s13 lca, my tie rods barely have enough threads. Win win! Also currently waiting for some SPL tension rods too, a week or two more since they were out of stock.

pics were taken with my old canon sd550 point and shoot, always surprisingly impressive!

peace out locking plate, SUP DANGER

s12 inners have a surprising amount of threads


Together. You can see the hockey pucks too

angle, looks good!

S13 front LCA's are finally here and in. Seriously took me forever, I figured "Hey, I've done this before. I'll just use my bench vise instead of the C-style ball joint press that I used a ton during my build." Wrong. Then had to wait til the day to go rent one. Thanks JOE(do you read this?) for the arms again(and painting them this cool, interesting color, haha), guy is a saint. He even gave me my cool unequal length header for the ka when my s12 was still in pieces.

Looks like the the sway bar barely lines up, I may have to just get an s13 one somewhere. And I'll definitely need new tension rods, s12 ones aren't even close. It's about time for adjustable ones anyway.

Yuta's 14's amongst my 15's. We threw them all together for this photo thing that you'll see later. You can see my blast pipes in the corner too, since I'm still lazily and slowly building a new 2.5in CAspec exhaust. I've pretty much only made the new down pipe so far.

s13 next to s12 front lca, s13 is 10mm longer

My birthday was just the other day on the 9th and I had dinners and a party and yada yada, whatever.


I picked up some genuine s30z fender mirrors from a local guy for $150(score) and the s13 front lca's I needed so badly for the s12 for free from JOE. THANKS JOE!

The camera I got Trinh for her bday also finally came

And if you didn't notice already, I widened up the page for 800x. Enjoy!
