Hey Brad,

If you ever want to sell that put me in line. I am sure I am far back in the que but put me there anyway.


The Mitsu, or the Yamaha? Either way, you have second dibs on either. Andrew has 1st on both, haha.


The Mitsu,I don't think that bike would hold my fat a$$.

I knew I would be second,but that is okay.

Looking nice and sweet RD.
I have been doing some upgrades on a customers flatty. Set it up with full 88 intercoolers, trans & diff. Also converted to 5 bolt and he has TSI rims under it. The car is starting to look sweet.
Mybe I need a hitch on one of my Starions to pull around my Cafe'd X6. That RD looks right behind the Star.

X6? As in Suzuki Hustler? I am doing a full resto/mod on one of those right now! Here is a link to the thread actually....
http://dotheton.com/index.php?topic=13446.0

And for those that have inquired, its not an RD. Belive it or not that bike is just a lowly little '81 SR250. Just swapped with an RD tank, Honda CB350 speedo and a seat of unkown origin. Most people would dismiss the sr250 as nothing more than a starter bike, but stripped of all its unneccesary weight its actually a pretty peppy little machine. I wont be winning any drag races on it, but with the low bars and low weight, the smile factor is VERY high!

If they do I want to know! I have a friend who does vinyls and I asked him about doing them but in vinyl they would be a little different, it would be imposible for him to do the gradients with out layering and even then it would not look right. They would need to be done by someone with a machine that prints out the colors, and that gets pricey, especially for a one off.

but thin of the money that would be there if someone reproduced japanese stripes.

So, spent Sunday detailing the Starion. Actually came out pretty good!! The wheels cleaned up amazing with so elbow grease and wheel cleaning acid. They still need a good polish and I am prob going to re-paint the centers. The outside of the car is more presentable now and the interior is damn near new! Thanks to fellow member here and my good friend Drew84 for the photos!!

I so need different wheels. I've got an even trade setup for some "cowbell" style stockers, but these things NEED lip. That, and the black centers are just too tight.

Lookin good!

Yeah, I am pretty happy that the car came with these and beyond excited that they cleaned up as good as they did. When I dismount the snow tires I am going to go all out on the lips. Hoping I cam bring them up to a mirror shine. I like the cow bell style wheels alot and would like a set, but I think that once I mount up the 205 Falken Azenis and do the GC coilover setup the car will be pretty on point as far as the stance goes with the zero offset enkies.

Well over the past winter this happened......

Totally not my fault and was paid by the other parties insurance to repair. I asked the appraiser who came to look at it if he would kindly not write it off and just write up to what ever the value was he could so as to avoid totaling it and I would decide what to do later. Thankfully he did! Being as it was winter and I needed a car pretty quick I picked up this '87 Audi 4000.
Image


I have been driving that since march and while I love it, I miss my ES!! So I am looking for the front sheet metal for the Starion.
Parts I need.....

LT Fender
Header Panel
LT Headlamp
Bumper Assy
Spoiler

The fender is what I need the most, I can NOT find a decent flat side fender in the North East and I need that on the car when I send it to the frame shop to straighten the Lt fender rail. I think that the rest of the parts besides the spoiler are the same for a Flat car or Widebody. Any help is appreciated!
