FZilla thread 2013

...for no other reason than no one has started a new thread in here for 3 weeks and I was getting tired of looking at the same post. Here is what I have been up to this spring...so far.


Sticker mod


Weathertech plate covers


Doing there thing in the rain


Hit a giant rock with the rear support member and had to replace it do to massive bend
The impact looks like a bullet hole!



New Volk's VR G2's 19's


Fitted with new 275/30/19's Continental DW


G2 Caliper paint and some custom "F" logo's rear/ Brembo on the front


BCR coil overs with custom spring rates and extenders



New Roof Spolier


New Exhaust - ISS Forged


Two quick dyno runs to check the results



It seems like a lot of work but have been collecting these parts for over a year and finally put them all on this spring.

Now just spend the next few weeks clay barring and high speed buffing the paint...sigh...it never ends.

Holy shit! that must have been some rock!

Question about your BC extenders: Did they come that length sitting flush with your trunk liner or did you somehow trim them to fit? Mine are so long they flop over a good 3-4 inches.

I trimmed them to about 1 1/2 inches - each end is set screwed locked with the allen key pin - used a dremel tool disc to cut the extender rods and plastic cover, then locked the set screws and is way better than full length.

Spent some time this summer with the Porter Cable!




Met up with a few friends.....took a photo before nightfall thinking I may never have these 5 heritage cars together again!


Celica GT-4
IS F
Supra TT
FRS
MR2




My favorite Billboard - must be from Cali, cause Lexus could never get away with this in Canada



Picked up this awesome IS F watch to go with the car



Visited Washington DC in September - Someone left a note on my car in the Hotel underground.
"como te voy olvidar" = How am I going to forget you?
