      currently I am switching out the front 400 pound spring to the rear and i will be getting a new pair springs that are 500 pound for the front.

      this is the old rear spring that is 325 lbs


      front spring 400lbs to the rear




      The rear is a little soft and rubbing just a tad.



      here are some random pics

      rear exhaust utilizing e60 bmw oem muffler, and vibrant resonator at the end, I really didn't want to make this car super loud.




      I also installed SPC adjustable camber ball joints on all 4 corners

      rear



      front
      you can also see the massive 1.25 solid sway bar. this has three settings

      Soft setting. 566 lbs

      Middle setting. 644 lbs

      Stiff setting. 739 lbs

      currently its at the middle setting

      I also got some brake pads on the way tomorrow

            This is awesome. I think it would look bad ass any color but I would be half tempted if I were you to fix the rust, clear it and be done.

              well i did fix all the rust even made my own rear quarters on both sides since it was that bad.

              I did clearcoat the car with this product 200 a gallon
              https://www.kbs-coatings.com/DiamondFinish-Clear.html



              Its holding up very well! Very durable. I can even wash the car, with no rust forming under neath but time will tell. It is advertised to work direct to metal.

              There are some runs but whatever. I plan on sanding it down and taking it some where to get a professional clear coat paint job. I am very happy with the car so far and wont do this untill maybe next winter. I plan on tracking the shit out of this thing.

              I plan on doing hyperfest and gridlife and bunch of auto x/ circuit cross events around the area.

                  In the one pic of the trunk, it looked like it had a little bit of rust on the edge of it. I think it is an awesome car and I like the new wheels that are going on. Keep up the great work.

                        Mounted a go pro on my front bumper as a test for future autox and road course events. For some reason it took the video in 960p or 980p, I can't recall the actual format. That vtech tho..... lol

                              Random Shots (hardparker photos)








                              Went to a track event a couple week ago, I am happy to say the car performed flawlessly!

                              Only issue is that my rear was rubbing on high speed sweepers, So I made some spacers because my rear coil over height is maxed out. I will find out next track day if that helps. I will need a new alignment since the rear is messed up because of the height difference.

                              On tight turns I can feel the car under steer just a little. So I attached a rear sway bar, that should make the rear a little more tail happy for proper rotation.


                              The Crew...

























                              I also met a photographer from Grassroots Motorsports, we had a photo session at summit point and there will be a feature so keep an eye out ;)






                              First time on the track at Summit Point, 1:34 nothing impressive, my goal is 1:28 which I think is doable for a newb.



                              My buddies spin out. hard to see but its there...



                              Current status

                              The car is at Alexander Fabrication to get a rear roll bar, I hope to pick it up next week before Hyper Fest @ VIR

                              I also plan on installing an oil cooler next week. Stay tuned for details

                                So I got my car back from the fabricator last week and the rear roll bar came out awesome!


                                I also made a 3 inch exhuast from the header back..


                                Ill take more pictures of the roll bar later.

                                When I got it back, I pieced together a oil cooler setup. Costed me about 450 for everything including the 25 row setrab.



                                I also went with aeroquip -10 AN socketless hose which i think lowered the cost quit a bit.









                                So after installing the 25 row oil cooler, my oil was not getting up to temp... @60 F out side temp, I was seeing a max or 160 in traffic, and 140 cruising... It could also be my oil temp placement reading low... So I ordered a oil drain plug with a bulit in NPT adapter. And if your wondering, I am using a HI temp mocal sandwich plate...

                                For cold weather I made this oil cooler cover until summer.

                                Dont worry the bracket is welded onto the bar....
