Finally finished my carbon spark plug cover..
My housemate got some wheels for his soarer, so it would have been rude to not to try them on the altezza.
Tight fit, and thats 18x9.5 et0
I then went and got these 18x9.5 et -9 and a set of 5x114 faces to swap into them.
My roof wing I made last year got blown off the car in a strong wind a few months ago and smashed on the floor. So that needed a rework. So I thought I'd go ahead and make a version 2 of the roof wing.
I didnt like how the old wing was pointing upwards too much, looked odd from some angles, so I decided to make the new one a bit flatter.
Got the rough shape I wanted using high density foam and fiberglassed over the top.
Quick test fit... still a fair way to go until the end.
My wheels got delivered.
Swapped the centers over and test fitted them!!
Got some bits from Japan. Sard jet pump for jzx110
68 degree thermostat
Lets not forget the tee and hoodie from Jimmy Up with the altezza on it
Along with a massive dildo to hit myself in the face with
Time has come to get some decent wings...
Look way nicer than the rusty, tyre rolled oem wings....Not for long though!
Then we decided to have a play to see if we could match the offset of new wheels using some old 17x9 and a 35mm spacer. Got within 1mm. Rim poking past the side-skirt is what every BN kit needs.
Then Paul 'The Fabricator Mate' as everyone knows him now, gave me a shout over the weekend to head over and get the exhaust made up!!
And the exhaust
With some sexy tig welds
Also I now really appreciate the benefit of vbands. Best invention ever!
Sitting nice and high. Well, as high as it can be anyway.
Ran out of welding gas in the end, so didnt get the chance to finish the tail pipes yet. Pretty f*** happy with the exhaust, shame no one will see it under the car
Car sounds insane!
