Happy new year y'all. Planning on fixing this thread soon when I get some free time.

2018 plans for the car include the following;

-Fix right side tension rod mount. We noticed when the car was getting aligned the caster was way out. Some futher measuring noted the right side TC rod mount is out about a 1/2 compared to the left side. So I'll have to take care of that and hopefully get the car to drive straight!

 

-I've got some adjustable tension rods to go in as well, hopefully will take up whatever remains after fixing that mount.

 

-I'd like to drop the rear subframe, and take care of the worn out bushings as well as give it a fresh coat of paint. With it out I will probably paint the rear wheel well to match the front, as well as paint the half shafts and also replace the u-joints.

 

-As much as I do love the Yoshimura muffler...I think I will probably get something more sensible and with a less "ricer" sound. This should not be too difficult as the yoshi is on a standard 3 bolt header flange, so I'll have "quick change" muffler abilities.

 

-I picked up some 13x7 American Racing Libre's. I'm a big fan of these wheels, but probably won't run them probably. Thinking about some certain non road legal tires for them to complete the full BRE look.

That's all for now.

Cheers

Looks like a 521 front bumper mounted as the rear bumper?
