cars i like

im a huge lowrider/oldschool fan, so I thought id share some random photos that I really like

credit to lowridermag, wedrift, and riverside i think, but i cant remember

and some other cars I like a lot

lexus and other

so heres what has been going on.  swapped in the new pass side rear end.suspension stuff.  realized that an sc400 has a different rotor size and caliper bracket size.  swapped the old caliper bracket on.  went to the picknpull and got a new front fender and rotor.  now everything is back together but i forgot to put the little clips in the brake pads, so i will put those in.  other than that, it sounds like my brake shoes might be making some type of noise, need to make sure i installed them right.  everything else is good all around.

doing some work on the dent on my hood.  its almost good to go.  also started sanding my hood down and an going to fill/shave the windshield wiper squirters soon too.

parting out an s13 coupe if anyone wants any parts

 and an old still shot from a video that my friend took a couple weeks back.

more to some soon.  im planning on painting the car once I get everything back together and the fenders rolled/worked to fit the wheels im building

recent stuff with my lexus

so i pretty much gave up on my nissan.  i have parted everything out except a few more parts which are still for sale.
im focusing on the lexus right now.  i crashed it about a week ago drifting in that parking lot we always go to.  slid into a curb.  hood, right fender, rear: disc brake, 3 control arms, 1 traction arm, axle, wheel, i forget what else.  anyways, pulled everything from the car.  still working on cutting out a frozen lca bolt.  i went to a guys parking lot down in milpitas and got a new subframe with all the pass side parts i need.  took them off as one whole.  im am ready to swap them in and will do so as soon as i get the bolt out.  i am swapping old ebrake cable to new setup.  I am also going to try to find a couple of more matching mustang wheels.  then i need a fender and i should be back on the road.

thats whats going on for now.  once i get the fender and repair the hood i am going to try to get a vertex style kit and paint the whole car.  Around the same time i will be looking to get coilovers, build my wheels, and work the fenders accordingly
