I've been browsing and posting here long enough, that I have now decided to start a project log.

I bought the car in February 2012 and since then I have only had to change the tires, fix the oil cap and a leaking radiator hose.

The day I brought it home with 73,000 miles on it. Now it has 85,XXX
(IMG:http://i1162.photobucket.com/albums/q530/gplayer12j/100MEDIA36IMAG0790.jpg)

It was bought with
Boss 318 18x8
Front and rear camber kits
Lowered on the eibach pro kit
SRI
Viper alarm and remote start
35% tint all around
Slotted and drilled rotors
Boston Acoustic S60 6.5 components
Pioneer DEH-P690UB
Pioneer TS-A6964R
Sony XM4S mounted under passenger seat
Muffler delete with new tip

I've since bought or changed
Shorty antenna
2 MTX audio Thunder 55 & MTX Jackhammer 600
Normal maintenance

I have R1 concept slotted rotors and pads coming monday and I need to buy new struts since I'm pretty sure the previous owner lowered it on the stock ones.

As it sits now

I was never a fan of the red strat. After seeing a couple you have a lot of body color schemes that can match well. Rims look good and build list looks ok. Make it nice dd and call it the day. Looks good are you joining the caravan to MTOD?

It is my DD I don't plan on changing much to it, since I am a college student. MTOD might be a possibility depending on how my summer class falls and if I've gotten my struts changed.

Car looks great and love the wheels. It is sitting a little low for the pro-kit, however. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Finally got around to installing the new rotors/pads and painting my calipers. Looks much better than before and no more brake wobble in the steering wheel.

Well I haven't been on here in a long time, so I figured I would finally update. I had to buy some new wheels and tires for the car since the
old Boss ones I had were so pitted and corroded from the previous owner not taking care of them. I've plasti-dipped the emblems
since this picture was taken.
(IMG:http://i1162.photobucket.com/albums/q530/gplayer12j/IMG_1107.jpg)


Last Sunday I went to head to the gym and noticed something was clanking when I was backing down the drive way. This was the culprit..A SNAPPED SPRING they'd been on the car for 5-6 years.
(IMG:http://i1162.photobucket.com/albums/q530/gplayer12j/IMG_0766.jpg)

So, now I have new struts, springs, tie rods, stabilizer links and half axles. I've pretty much rebuilt the front suspension within the last month.

Since nobody mentioned that, the wheels / rims look great, I love them! It's been 2 years, I know, but some more activity on this forum would be great! Anyways, good luck on your future projects, everything's looking great!

I like the wheels also. The color matches the body color. Any info about them? I'm planning to replace my rims and I like the look of Centerline wheels but I'm still looking for other options.
