I miss the last car greatly. But it makes me more motivated when I have nothing to show but a 92 camry.

Making a profit on builds is how you pay for the really nice toys. We share the same dream on the SL-C except mine would be a NA 4 rotor.

Updates:

-Cleaned Fuel Tank, installed walbro 400, installed bulkhead 8an return and ATS Wiring Bulk Head Connect, 12ga ground / 10ga power to pump

^Now to install fuel tank. This pump is the lift pump to feed the massive fuel lab feeder

-Test fitted wheels/tires. The fit is insanity. Literally about 10mm from the fender lip. Going to space it out for "stance nation" by about 8mm, so its real tight, but its nice and fat with these real tires. Inside clears struts by a few hairs! 305/35/18!!!


-Installed pedals, brake booster, clutch master


Next up:

-install dash with dashbar permanently
-hook up brake lines and clutch line/slave cylinder, fill and bleed, hook up e-brake
-install fuse boxes and begin running the wiring to a from dash to triggers on relays
^will wire up components to relay later

-install bodypanels here in a week or two and then buff the wetsanded paint back up to magic

knock all of this out before engine arrives, then its party time

fuel, oil, water, spark, done. lol

I like this logo but it can be tweaked. Add some colors to it.

Make the Rotor Silver? black? etc..

You're opening a shop?

I find it hilarious that its "Monsterbox Garage" when we are talking about a triangle here :p (box/triangle get it?)


ANYWHO...SERIOUSLY DUDE...INVEST IN A BETTER CAMERA. All this money into the car with nothing to show (online), but picture quality of a krazer.
HAHAHHA

Yea the triangle box thing I was waiting for that....but hey it brings up questions, if people say WTF is that mean, then thats a good thing because they took time to think Maybe we can stick the rotor inside a housing and then its a box?

Seriously I hardly even know what monsterbox means. I used to put together pc's when I was younger and call them monsterboxes lol.

Yes, goal is to transition out of real estate and into car world full time

Yeah that would be awesome. I just am finishing law school and can't wait to have enough money to open my own shop. Key is to live happy, drive happy, and well be happy.

Hopefully I can get some clients to pay my debts off and then rock the racing scene .

My friend was actually the one who sketched it. That isn't the finalized design, we plan on digitizing it and using colors obviously. The letters won't have a fade effect or design, instead, a standard black finish. Hopefully Zack will like it in the end

Ok guys so little update:





Finished the dash, installed it for last mock-up. Wiring is completed for each switch/control. Everything is ground switched. All triggers for relays in the trunk. There will be two, water-proof fuse boxes in the trunk, and nothing else on the entire car.
