Interior: DONE!

Got all that nasty sound deadening out! What a tedious PITA! Not really looking forward to stripping the underbody, but I want this car to be solid. Planning on Por15′ing the interior and underbody. After that, the interior gets Dynamat/Fatmat/whatevers, and exterior gets a rubberized undercoating.


Finished interior

And a bad ass picture for inspiration.


JDM 510

I also have a B210 brake booster and a pretty nice rear bumper being shipped over. My tax return is getting smaller and smaller!

Aren’t you a gorgeous little thing…

When I was searching for my wagon, I wanted original paint in either orange, poppyseed/mustard yellow or this periwinkle blue. The Equip 03′s and JDM grille look awesome…

This Is Going To Get Interesting…

So I picked these up locally for a song. Seriously too good of a deal to not jump on them. 14×9 and 14×10 with 0 offset and nearly new 205/60/14r Federal tires.

Here’s some shots of my current favorite Z at the moment, courtesy of Inzane240, rocking 15×9.5 0 offset Epsilons in the rear.

I could get them to fit with max camber, a roll, pull, tug, baseball bat, etc., but I don’t want to. Probably just gonna sell them. Or stare at them until I find a car I can fit them on.



Watch This.

Big ups once again to Rod. Sick video from Nostalgic 2 Days. My jaw literally dropped.

Rod of Tetsuya Garage pointed me towards his personal blog with some AMAZING coverage of the recent Nostalgic 2 Days. Here’s my favs.

You can never go wrong with the classic Watanabes. Ever.

Hells yeah. Techno Phantoms. I really want to pick up some Techno Phantoms, Riverside Riverges or Star Sharks. Something a little more intricate and jewel-like than the wheels I already have.

Burgundy Hako sedan with some DEEEEEEEEEP 01′s. I love how classy the color is, as it probably wouldn’t work as well on a coupe.

Star Road’s always spotless S30Z now rocking color matched Equip 03′s.

Kenmeri on the new Work Meister CR01′s. I am not a fan of these wheels. I don’t know, I think it’s the shape of the spokes and the extra holes around the lug nut holes. In my opinion it makes it look cheap. *Flame suit on*

Beautiful TE72 on the new Gram Lights 57v. Not a fan of these wheels either. I thought they would grow on me but they still haven’t. Maybe it needs more dish. By the way, anyone notice the fender mirrors? NISSAN BABY! Take that, Brice!

After sleeping over at Justin’s house and being stuck in the garage for the majority of the night due to pouring rain, the sky cleared up on Saturday for a nice, albeit hot day. We woke up decently early and rolled on over to Aloha Stadium to check out HellaFlush.

It was a really good show with a wide variety of builds and a lot of projects saw their debut.

I finally got to check out Lance Harano’s Sprinter up close. This thing is amazing!

Royden’s Corolla wagon rolling on Watanabes. I think he said 15×9″ -13.

MMM… Rubber.

This black on black Supra kept drawing me back. Targa top with the cage looks TOUGH!

Hachi crew. I love all of their wheels.

Crazy Nissan Hardbody with some Boso looking flares. I saw it another car show with it’s hood open… VQ power baby!

Super clean Toyota truck on some 17″ SSR Reverse Mesh. I want a truck now…

I only took shots of stuff that interests me, but if you’re interested in seeing the rest check out SpeedHawaii for the full coverage.

Meisters look mad on ANYTHING. If I had an S chassis (which I probably would have gotten if I didn’t get into my Dattos) or my old MR2, they’d definitely be sitting on Meisters. This facelifted “Iron Mask” DR30 is no different.

Speaking of Works… Look what’s been packed up and is on the way over the ocean for me!

Vintage Equip 02′s in 14×8 -14! I originally wanted some SSR Starsharks, but these came up on Club4ag. I rarely ever see 02′s on anything and the price of them kept getting lower. I made an offer and now they’re mine! OG and JDM, perfect for me!

Corolla homies from around the island had a little get together last week to meet and greet again. Lots of old faces as well as lots of new projects getting debuted.

Wats!

This AW11 MR2 was previously seen wearing Meisters and now she’s rolling on Equip 01′s.

This hatch reminds me a lot of the black “Evade” Hachi that was also present.

I’ve been watching this build on Facebook. It’s a father/son endeavor that shares the common link of a project car. I’m really hoping I can get on that Mustang build with my old man…

TWO DOOR WAGON!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3!!!

BTW, much respect for Jeffrey Soriano from Forums Hawaii for providing the snaps.

On a Sunday afternoon.

Let ‘em drool.

And finish the night off with a burger.

Cjr198car over on Ratsun with an absolute stunner. Love the red paint with gold Work Wheels combo. Flawless.

I never really liked four spoke wheels, over the top flares or the ZG conversion.

My world just imploded. So much “wrong” looking so right. It’s got me questioning my sense of style and taste. Maybe Justin Bieber and Twilight are actually really good but I just haven’t realized it yet?
