              Thanks, dude. I'd be pretty stoked if it ends up looking like something in between your two E30's I've seen on here.

              Really want a Kamei boot spoiler and Zender front valance/lip.

              What size were the Work Equips on the black one?

                thanks! But the wheels was knock offs of work equips. They was Drag DR20 15x7 et10 with 196/55/15 tires. I will warn you though, those wheels didnt clear the front calipers. I had to grind on the caliper to get them to clear. it wasnt much grinding, but still had to do it. And i didnt want spacers cause it the clearance with the fender was close enough as it was lol.

                        Fitted the 15x7's. 195/50 Bridgestone RE002's on the front and 195/50 Kumho KU31's on the rear. The wheel/tyre fitment is nice and square, no stretch and no ballooning, just how I like it.








                        Then I installed the suspension.

                          Doing an inner showdow line would look pretty good with this color.

                            So, bought a few more things for this bitch.

                            Aluminium mounts for the sheet metal shifter cartridge, M Tech 1 wheel and new eBay roundels(if they're shit I won't use them) and the most important thing of all; an oil pan gasket.

                            Was thrashing her around some twisty hills roads, got airborne over a bump and killed the sump. Luckily it was only a small hole so I was able to patch it up in a super ghetto way. Waiting on delivery of a gasket so I can get under there and swap it over.

                            If anyone wants to see some really dodgy repairs; here ya' go. No need to tell me to stop being lazy and change it over, I know the repair is less than ideal but it's holding oil until my gasket arrives.

                              I think it's time for a new clutch. When I put my foot down on the clutch pedal, I can feel it vibrating and there's a squealing coming from inside the bell housing. It's also getting sticky (like the pedal has a hard time coming back up) and the friction point is awfully small.
