that is true.. And I have already fitted the Brides in my other FD without an issue.

more update...

Oct 4th, 2012

Past couple of days, I decided to strip off my spare RZ hub assemblies and fix up the rotor back plates and such.





Fronts fixed and degreased... Test fitted the new DBA rotors.. Shaved some metals so DBA rotors can freely spin.



Rears fixed and degreased



My good friend Bryan from BNR Supercars is going to let me use his cabinet to blast the rust and such off so I can get the prettied up today.


Also, I received some goodies from Turbonetics.



Their GT-K 1050!!!!

I'm currently putting the car together for SEMA and I can't upload all the stuff that's going on..

I'll make this short and share 2-3 pics.. including the render done by amazing artist and designer, Greg Thompson. He did an amazing job rendering the car with few pics I sent him and list of goodies I was going to put on. Just amazing work!! Since its so close to SEMA, I'll share the render to give you guys an idea what it will look like (exterior).



Hint of couple of parts..






I'll update the full car on my way to SEMA..

Rendering looks awsome. Wish I could've gone to sema again this year...went a few years back and I can say 3 things: hottest car models, amazing cars/products & super sore legs(my gf at the time had a pedometer and we figured we walked about 17 miles in 2 days lol)

'01 ASP 17x8 ssr comps 225/45 all around, LS400 bbk, FX-R 3.0 projector retrofit in JDM headlights, Modellista front, c-speed sides/rear, Rigid Bars, Hotchkis sways(stiff), Konis & eibach prokit, PLP intake tube & K&N filter, JIC Ti axleback w/ custom midpipe...more to come ;)

Very true.. I usually have to 'train' to goto SEMA.. Otherwise, you are out after 1st day.


Here are some updated pics as I get ready for SEMA Las Vegas.







More pics coming once the car is set up at SEMA.... I just unloaded yesterday..

Update - November 8th, 2012

I'm going to try to share my experience over the past 2-3 weeks of putting the car together to, journey across the USA to SEMA Las Vegas, to Journey back.

I'll try to go through the journey over next 2-3 days.. And I promise you guys, there will be ton of pics

To start, I was waiting for my paint and body guys Jonathan Goolsby and his crew to paint the body so I could start working on the car.

Paint we've chosen was BASF Mercedes AMG Imola Grey Metallic with hint of darker tint.

Here is a picture of the car before and after the shell was painted.





Car at this point had nothing on it except stock suspensions and some old school VOLK wheels to roll the shell around.

More coming when I get some more photos uploaded..

Update - Nov. 9th, 2012

Update continues..

When i first saw the car after paint, I decided to clean up the wheel wells and put a nice new coat of undercarriage paint.

But til then, I also decided to drop the rear subframe and do it right



I then taped up the wheel arch and went to town with the paint.



Front after paint..





Rear painted and with new subframe and new diff on.
