Lately ive been real busy and have seemed to get tons done but also feel like nothing is getting done. Managed to get all of the wheel studs upgraded to arp and also added drilled and slotted rotors and some ebc pads. I got a killer deal on a JLT oil seperator. The guy i purchased it from gave me a brand new JLT cai which is about $300 new and a used unmarried SCT X4 tuner with 5 unlocks left which is about $400 new all of that for $60 :eek: best deal ever not sure i can use the tuner and i already had a steeda cold air but i couldint say no. Ill find a use for it sooner or later. Also tried to get car ready to start and had a bad fuel leak so have to redo the an lines because one was pinched.

Also wondering what everyone thinks about my headlight vents i made up. I figured why not because one of the 4 eye headlights dont work the way i want because my car is a 89. And it will get the extra air to the intake i need.

Just a quick tip i just learned....if you don't already. People have been using magnets on the fkares to hold them to the car while the PBA is setting with good results. It'll help keep them from bowing without having to drill holes.

They are from ebay Callahan brand like from the movie Tommy Boy lol. Ive used them for a few of my other cars never in the black zinc and they have held up fine. These i touched the brake one and it pulled off the finish. It did not bother me much as i am preparing to purchase a big brake kit front and rear in the very near future.

Thanks i am considering on using the pba now and i did think about the magnet idea. Ihave some extremely powerful magnets to hold them so if i go that route that is my plan.

Small update just need to align the car. I do plan on molding the flares and bumpers to the car over the winter it is far from perfect and im fine with that as long as i can enjoy it a few times this year. Also i could not get the moldingt to all work without heavily modifying them because of the flares so those will need some love as time goes on also. I will post some more pics very soon
