Thanks Steve-O. Here's what I've been up to.
Went to Austin to get my cage touched up a bit by Russell.
Don't mind the random ass pictures that have nothing to do about anything, I was given the new Sony NEX-5N from work and I wanted to test it and see what kind of pictures it would take in a kind of touristy situation. AKA not really taking the time to set up shots, more point and click but still with trying to pay a little attention to composition and shit. But anyway, don't mind that.
Oh, the front window sticker wall is gone now. Took em all off a few days ago.
I HAVE to get me one of dem lights.
Pictures make the interior look so much cleaner than it is, haha.
Seat dun disappurd.
And then a wild Russell appeared.
After the deed was done, we put Russell's bike into the hatch of my car and drove back to the hipster part of Austin for an awesomely delicious food truck adventure. Was pretty hilarious having my hatch half-open with a bike sticking out of it. Car was so much louder haha!
Buddy Nick's car. I snapped this on the way back to test out how this camera works with rolling shots where the camera person isn't even paying attention. +100 to the camera for being awesome.
I also slapped some more spacers on the car to make it look a bit more aggressive. I thought it turned out pretty well.
18x9.5 +20 (+20mm spacer) front
18x9.5 +30 (+25mm spacer) rear
Re-fiberglassed my Chargespeed rear bumper and tried to see how a rattle can would do. Not well. Hahaha. Like 100 shades whiter. Painted the diffuser flat black to see how it would look with the contrast, and it looks awesome. Cannot wait to get it painted legit and slap it back on the car. It'll really finish off dat ass.
Also sold ALL of my wheels except for my 4 deep blue Rota Grid's as well as my S13. Decided to buy myself something special.
WedsSport SA-60M 18x10 +20 in Blue-black. Now I can be a typical my350Z.com brodude asshole and pretend like I've never owned replica wheels, and be all elitist and whatnot. Naaah I'm joking. I <3 replicas! First set of non replica wheels I've ever owned and it was basically because the S13 was sold.
Absolutely cannot wait to get these things on. Just need to get new tires for the front and swap over my other tires to the rear. There's only one picture of a Z with these on the internet and it's a stock Z, so I think it'll be super cool being one of the only Z's on the interwebs with these on. Pictures do not do these justice, the color is amazing.. In the daylight the color turns into a deep blue / purple. Absolutely beautiful. Light as hell too.
Worked on getting my A/C back into the car!! Got everything, put on in a few hours. Next day went to get it charged, compressors clutch isn't engaging... Damn.
It was messy.
Surprisingly even with my oversized radiator the condenser fit perfectly. Kinda. For the most part. Sorta. But, I either got a bad compressor, or my relay is screwed. I think it's just the relay because I did the built in auto-diagnostic check dealio and when it was suppose to engage the clutch I didn't hear the relay at all. I'll figure it out.
Other than that, things have been pretty calm. Tires on the way for Lonestar Bash / Round 2, gotta find the time to try and find a place with a lift and a press so I can do my rear subframe bushings quicker and easier, and gotta hook up my hydro e-brake. I'm going to hook up the hydro this week, super stoked.
Oh, and my buddies from work Nick and Mr. Tyler Greene and I all piled into Nick's Z to go to lunch yesterday. It's pretty easy to fit 3 guys in a Z, lemme tell you.
It is a little hard on the rib cage for the person in the back though.
