Default Finally got the car running, some new snapshots!

So I finally got the car running again. Some snapshots of today's drive, first time I took the car out in exactly one year!!! Changed the look a little since the last pics.

looking good....bumper cover seems to be the wrong shade of white. man I'd love to have that cover and plumb some air to my brakes and take benefit of that splitter and large opening....well designed one you got there.

205.50.15s?

Thanks for the comments.

For the suspension I have Stance coilovers, and 205/40/16 tires.

Don't mind the hardtop color and off white bumper, the whole car will be painted, bumper is just primer right now. It's bomex front bumper BTW, with oem sideskirts and rear mud flaps.

Continue with the hating

How often do you have to clean white wheels on a drift car?

Are you painting everything white?

Damn that thing looks beautiful just the way it is. The sideskirts and mudflaps match up real nice with the Bomex front end. Rims look nice on there as well. What color are you having it painted?

the sportmaxx looks much better all white. I hope you're repainting the car all white as well. That would look awsome.

I'll probably paint the whole car white, including the hood and hardtop. Or do CF hood hard top and trunk.

I moved some of the wires, mostly the ones that go on the wheel wells, headlight wiring, radiator fans, diagnostics box, also hid the trunk latch cable. They're all under the fenders now. It's still not as clean as I would like in the engine bay, but I dont want to go to town with it and hack up all the wiring just yet. And I still have to keep all the emissions stuff because I'm on stock ECU and need to pass OBDII emissions.

Yeah, the wheels are your good old sportmaxes, powdercoated all white, I like them much better like that. 16x8 0ET, with 205/40/16 tires all around
