    Bronzit 4-door Swap... Wait what??

    You heard right, this daily got some unintentional love but before we get to that, this thread will also document the progress the car has made since I got it for free bone stock last August To achieve this chronological order I will be posting a few pictures at a time until we catch up to the current state but I promise it won't take more than a week!
    Phase one: Boredom after graduation leads to blown grad money :giggle:

    Got the car from my cousin a couple days after my birthday (precisely August 8th) :D Ironically had a church camp the same weekend and had to wait to fawn over my VERY OWN car; God's chariot!!

    Cool rare stuff




    Yes it's on a jack



    Minor(?) faults

    2 tone










    Succumbed to temptation and my first mods arrived!


    Dinan chipped ECU




    Clutch stop<---GET ONE!!




    Friend donated two free Alpine speakers from his vert... Only two working speakers


    Ran like a champ but had a FILTHY engine bay!!
















    Obligatory strut tower pic (you couldn't know there was a sticker there before cleaning!)


    I had a hunch that the older couple up the street would trade me my wheels + cash for the style 10's on their vert so I gt bussy making them presentable...

    Most awkward convo of my life
    Anyway:









    All (mostly) clean!



    More packages FTW!



    Prior break in; evidence on trunk itself and passanger door lock (it's actually in the car)




    More tomorrow... That's a start though, innit?

                    Whats goin on??












                    A bit of damage. Looks as if it was hit before too! That fender is the only one retaining the "factory" paint finish. Recently found bondo under there as well:




                    No registration but I ricked a trip to my buddy's house for some goodies ;)


                    BBS RG003!!




                    Had some faults though; major rash and BALD tires!






                    Cars like it when you put gas in them :giggle: Left me stranded up the street from my house. Good times...


                    At this point in time we started looking at another house. Bank was pwning on payments and we found this bigger yet cheaper house. Suck it Bank of America!!

                    O and I hate tandem garages :hitler:


                    Lawn was all fukd up and stuff so e30 chilled while my physical labor was called upon to dig up dead grass. (We are now at Thanksgiving break!)












                    Commence shadowlining! I don't suggest Plastidip for anything other than the side trim


                    Perfect view :giggle:






                    Not bad... Sadly the other side was not finished as I was interrupted by moving


                    Also got an is spoiler!




                    The weather here in socal could not make up its' mind and it pretty much rained/drizzled from September through January. I concluded that rollin on bald tires was not safe and traded the wheels to someone who could show them more love than I could. What I got

                    Don't laugh!



                    k u can laugh...




                    Then I got rid of these




                    And traded them for these




                    Sanded and painted trim rings








                    Day and night on the road!


                    High beam mod




                    Awwww yeeeehhh

                    Whats that stuff you put in the tank again?? Oh yeeeaah gas!

                    Picked up a couple things and got stranded at a friend's house; only this time the lines sucked up some dirt. Unclogged it and a minute excretion from the pits of hell released its grip on the fuel filter and down to the earth it fell, fouling up the air for miles






                    Stuffs






                    Painfully high; Know how to fix this??


                    By moving :mrgreen:

                    The heavens let loose over Christmas break, our set moving time :firehop:




                    Our humble abode... It will be missed!!


                    New place


                    Facing out of the new place


                    ok ok THIS is how you lower a car :D

                    Working in my friend's garage/stable where my car broke down






                    "Ready?? ok, 'releases jack pressure'"
                    "It keeps going down!!!"
                    "Dam this shts stiff af!!"
                    "Dude I can't get the jack out!
                    "Fuk it's sittin go the jack! 'insert normal jack to assist'"
                    "IT'S EVEN LOWER!!

                    ^Pretty much how the end of that nigh went :nice:

                    Holy rake batman!!












                    Time for the rears!


                    In plus test fit lol
















                    One problem with the old driveway teehee




                    Got it registered the day after we did the rears and I was on my way
