Yup, Chado's car. Trying to get him to sell me his push start... Crossing my fingers!

He had it for fun. Liked seeing people look confused when he walked away with the car running. And he really wanted HKS to produce a bolt on supercharger so he had his hopes up I think :p

color change?
No way! Not happening any time soon.

Like the set up. Anyone selling a full oe jdm push start?
If they are selling it they better sell it to me!

Couple terrible phone pictures. I have some others with my camera but won't have time to edit them for a while.

Threw on my Qualitat badge and Vertex fenders, but ran out of time getting everything lined up. Mainly just my side skirts since they are held up by double sided tape. Doesn't help that I didn't put the bottom bolts back on for the fenders.

Will fix the side skirts as best I can without pulling them off, don't want to have to redo the double sided tape only to have to do it again when I finally get my wheels done.

Meh.. Black chrome doesn't match anything on my car, I already have things in satin black. And I don't like the clear turn signals.

Not to mention they are $400+ (I could have bought a set for $350 but passed).

Why spend another $400+ on lights I don't really like? I already have working head lights AND the chrome JDM lights that I got a good deal on as a package with all the other stuff I bought.

I would much rather put $400+ into the chrome lights to paint them and maybe do a simple retrofit and have a set of lights I actually want.

Went to the CupCake meet in Stroud, OK this past weekend. Met a couple IS guys! Dat, Zack, Reyes, and I saw a few others but didn't have many chances to talk to them. Good to put some faces with cars though!

Borrowed my friends wheels for the weekend. He is parting his car and selling it so the wheels are for sale!

SSR Varden Sport Mesh
18x8.5 +30
18x9.5 +40 (maybe +42)

I'll post a thread in the for sale forums when I get pictures uploaded.

Swapped back to stock wheels today though... I'm glad I put them on though, I realized I don't want all chrome wheels. :lol:

they look great on your
Looks good!
I like those wheels more! At least from the side.
Real nice shots

Thanks, they are nice wheels, but I prefer my Blitz. No spacers required, big lips, wide.... Why run skinny wheels when you can fit bigger? :lol: Plus I still love the Blitz styling.

Those SSR's were 18x8.5 and 18x9.5.
My Blitz will be 18x10 and 18x10.5.


New wheel hardware (nuts, bolts, valve stems w/ caps) should be delivered Thursday.

Two new lips were sent to be chromed today. Website says that will take 10-12 business days then they will ship to me.

^^ yeah, that's why I only like them more from the side, so you can't see the skinnyness or spacers lol
I gotcha :approve: the style is good looking from the side, I'm just partial to Blitz lol

Great meeting you in person Corey! Modellista car looks so good! all chromed out with nice big lips on the blitz would look so nice! :D
Same to you! Vertex/Chargespeed looks awesome in person. + those wheels :approve: you just need Ganadors! :p

Dang, i wish my car was white :(
I wish my car was all one shade of white :lol: :lol: :lol:

I can't complain though, finding ALL of this stuff in a shade of white is pure luck. I can deal with different shapes of white, I couldn't deal with completely different colored panels lol.

And no, I wouldn't have put any of the parts on if they were different colors. So my car would still be stock :pissed:





Because I have nothing else to add car wise.... It was almost 70*F Monday, Tuesday, and 65*F today (Wednesday). We are now supposed to get 3-10"+ of snow by Friday night, and the low Friday is 6*F :lol:

I'm sure there are quite a few others in similar situations, just thought I'd add more useless info to this thread :cool:
