Here are some updates. Haven't had much time to get on here, but a lot has been done.

Fit the Flares and was rocking my 15x8 -8 Ultra rims (with 1" 5 lug adapters)
Image

Image

Had a pair of 15x8 -32 Bart Racing Steelies for a bit.
Image

I had a pretty huge collection of rims and tires. I buy and sell a lot.
Image

Slapped on some 2" spacers for other rims
Image

At FEST
Image

Got 14x7 Enkei 92's
Image

Decided to change up the Supra rims one more time. Chemically stripped all the paint off them etch primed the inner corners and then gold painted it. Then hand polished the lips and faces.
Image

Image

In other news, i bought these back. I missed the purple
Image

For now, i havn't been pushing to progress it too much until i get the eclipse running. This is my Pizza Delivery Daily Driver and i dont have the time to do what i want to it until i get the Eclipse running.

Just some universal flares. Meant more for coupes like 510's, Z's, ra24's, 240sx's ect. They fit awkwardly with sedans like mine cuz I had so little room to mount it. Im thinking about slicing the flare along the door line and doing some of my own fab work so I can mount it higher...

Few updates.
Slapped on the rear bumper for some extra protection for the winter, just in case.
Got 15x8 / 15x10 staggered circle racing rims, still need tires for the 10's, so i test fitted the 15x8s for a few days in the rear.
Also got some new NRG solid steel/fiberglass buckets and RaceQuip 5 point SFI Harnesses.

No, didn't sell the rt105. It got rear ended on a hit n run(guy took off) :evil: Got totaled and chassis got crimped and had to salvage her.

I'm scouting for another one if I can find it lol. Keep up the good work :tu:
