So its almost time for the car to hit the road. The fender flares will be put on after I wrap the wheels with 245/255 and will probably also go lower. Here is how she sits right now!
So I finally got my insurance and the car registered so it was time to drive it and push it hard to see if any problems popped up. It spooled hard and loud, and it felt like it was trying to kill you. It was simply put, everything I’ve ever wanted it to be and more….But unfortunately a few problems popped up:
1. After a 5 minute drive we noticed some light smoke in the car, figured out it was wiring. Good thing we caught that right away, no serious damage occurred.
2. We had a problem with the brake linkage and the rims would get hot to the touch, fixed that right away.
3. We developed a vacuum leak, and currently are diagnosing and figure out the problem. The car should be 100% in a few days.
Also, I don’t have to rev the engine at all to put it into first hahaha. 2jz just says “Fuck you, I got this!”. Haven’t ever experienced that before. I was so excited that we finally finished, but these problems popped up and all I have been doing is watching car videos…I feel like I just broke up with my GF hahha. Just have to wait a little bit more
So I been busy, since I just graduated…Yay! Anyway I took sometime to do polish and wax the car for the first time yesterday. Wanted to see how well it cleaned up, but I still have to clay bar her and do a few more coats. She is looking loving though!
I just moved to SD two week ago and its been a crazy few weeks getting settled. But I finally got my car shipped over here and everything went well except a crack on the top of my windshield. They promised to replace it though so its all good. I also had a lot dirt and stuff from the move and decided to give my car a little day at the spa. We tucked the bumpers and gave it a 3 step detailing process. Whole thing took 10.5 hours to do…im a little OCD about my car haha.
Well here are some pics! enjoy!
