It's been a bit since I have posted an update, painting is nearly complete, just now saving up for 2 more wheels and tires before it's ready for inspection and then it will be time to save up for the major build. The paint isn't perfect, but I will be repainting it a new color. Here is a preview;

Here are some more shots of how she sits now;
 
 

Not bad for a quick rattle-can job Grin
 
 
Just the driver's side door and have to pop a dent at the door jam. Btw if any of you guys know of some fourth gen stock wheels up for sale let me know, I'm not driving with the 18s in the winter again, though it was fun.

the height of your sidewall is what matters most (second only to tread) in the snow and rain.

fat tires ftw!

Yea, those were 215/35zr18 fk452s I have some 215/40zr18 neo-gens to tide me over on the 18s until I can get the 15x9.5 wheels and tires for it. Still not 100% on the diameter of the wheels, I want to keep the aspect ratio low so I don't have the sidewalls flexing under hard cornering when I start participating in autocross. The increased traction will be nice at the cost of excess unsprung weight. Decisions, decisions

Picking up parts in the next few days to prep for a manual swap.Funds are tight with the wedding coming up in 3 months. So pretty much no lude parts until further notice. The lude has had some work done though; she was ready for inspection until I found a hole in my flex pipe. Working 2 jobs is eating up all my time right now. Nice thing is the lude is indoors at my parents place.

Snapped a pic last night


Sorry for the crappy quality cell phone pic

I can't wait. Of course I'll have to learn how to drive stick to begin with. I understand the concept, but have never driven in traffic or anything. Definitely going to pick up a cheap eBay clutch and flywheel to start out so I don't burn up the SPEC clutch and flywheel when I get it. Just need to source a trans, mounts, and ecu yet.

Update

Since my last post I've brought the lude to my place, which doesn't have a garage. So this is the lude 's current status.



Going to clean off the snow and start her up tomorrow.  Gotta trace a small coolant leak it was having before the snow storm.
