Get them from www.tirerack.com. No sales tax. :wink:

What size tire are you planning to use?

195/45-14 Toyo T1R's, which I have to buy from Les Schwab since they are the only ones who sell them and I have a $20 off coupon for them, hence the reason for buying them before the tax increase...

Great to see the rarity.
I think I have a copy of Car&Driver magazines first review of them.

I constantly see those on Ebay... In fact, I see those old reviews more than I see actual parts for the car :|

Small update: Got the wheel bearing finished today at work. Feels MUCH better now :D

I still can't believe I actually found it, let alone managed to win the auction for it!

Weber IDF 44

I don't think it came with a filter or velocity stacks, so I think I need to pick some of those up.

Sorry for the lack of updates lately. I've been working on things that aren't really worth photographing yet, but heres what i've got going on right now...

I put the front and rear suspensions partly back together (the front is almost done, minus bushings, and the rear is done but the whole torsion-rod setup back there will require me to build it off the car and reinstall it) so when my wheels/tires are done I can test the ride height and pick which shocks I'll used based on minimum-height.

Image
Image
Image
Image

Here are a couple photos of the rolled front fenders that actually came out quite well:

Image
Image

Oh, and I test-fit the "Sports" / JDM front grill!

Image
Image

As you can see, it does a MUCH better job of hiding the front suspension than the original valence did...

Tires installed and on the car!

I'll roll it out the garage this weekend and take GOOD photos... But I know what length of shocks I need now (its bottomed out right now, which means I need SHORTER shocks)

Image

Image

Plenty of rear clearance now!

Image

Bad news...

The FRONTS need spacers :( They don't clear the center of the hubs... I saw a pic on that JDM blog that had spacers in the front and I wondered why, now I know...

They are looking hell of flush right now, how's a spacer gonna make them fit/look?

Or are we talking like a 3mm spacer?

Yeah it looks like you need a spacer to clear that center section after looking at the pics again, should be a simple fix

This is what the dude in Japan did:

But yes, that round center section is whats in the way :(

Machining the wheel or that hub is not really an option.
