So, I'm gonna start off with some pics, and edit the original post later with details and goals. DaSoup is bugging the bejesus out of me to post pics, and make a new build thread to hang out in. This thread will only be temporarily lame.......I hope!

Parts I have accumulated waiting for install...

Bomex skirts
Kaminari rear
A1 traction arms
3" exhaust cutout
McCord power plate
billet aluminum P/S reservoir
Adjustable cam gears....still waiting on cams.....ahem....buckshot, youre not alone!
Tookwik ignition mod is in, waiting on a new cover.
Battery disconnect switch

Coming soon.....18's, coilovers, big brakes!
BACK IN THE DAY! 7/03



MORE RECENT 12/06.....



Currrent work in the last couple weeks.....I started with the worst part......moulding in side skirts.....yuck!













I have 10 or 12 dings to work out and this nasty rust spot!

Nice job Ken. I've wanted side skirts ever since I bought my car, but my wife won't let me buy any. She doesn't like the way they look. If I hadn't had so much other things to spend my money on, I would have bought some myself. I chose to go with a smaller engine instead...............:biglaugh:

Yeah, ricer is going to look way better.................:biglaugh:

JK, I love the sideskirts and I think it's going to look way better. I loved it before, but now you'll be on another level. You and Kwnate will be on one level and Ryan and I will only be able to aspire to be on that level................:nono:

Just don't forget the little people that got you where you are. Ryan and I knew you when you were just a little Chicago MKIII owner with a weakass'd automatic tranny..............:biglaugh:

Didn't have any gloss black....just silver. Alittle more fine sanding and this side is done. I am not having a good time here, but it's coming out the way I wanted:)

Blue supra owners are saddened by the SM legend know as IJ for the direct attacks on our Blueness......:biglaugh:

Ken you are correct hand sanding does suck so be a man and suck it up!!! It is so going to be worth it in the end. Way to keep on top of the pictures. Get your future wife to take one of you hard at work on the car. This will make my job of making fun of you lots easier....lol:biglaugh:

Ninja edit!!! Ohh silver is sexy rattle can the whole car like that!!! I promise you if you do ROTY for sure...lol

the car should look alot better now, I always thought the front bumper looked sort of out of place on the otherwise stock bodied car.

Hey Ken, I have to admit I have been in my own world a tad lately so I missed this. Im sorry I wasnt here to provide a little 3E5 support fo ya my brotha.

The skirts are going to be awesome. You have to keep telling yourself that as you do all that hand sanding. Believe me I know. Big flat panels like hoods are even worse.

You guys are really raising the bar here. I cant wait to see it all done man!

We're all good Pete, you feelin' all settled in there now?? I hate moving with a passion!!

I have finally settled on these beauties as my final answer. Don't hate on me....I just don't want the same old stuff everyone has...I really want something cool that stands out!! And I wanted black so this works nicely.
