          Thanks!

          I finally got a mock up for the rear spoiler. Going to take a lot of working the fiberglass to make all the parts line up right but it'll be worth it.

              It's been so cold

              I bought a new brake mc because my old one wasn't holding pressure properly. After the brake rebuild it became pretty clear that the calipers weren't the problem like I had thought. Haven't installed the mc either.

              I've got the wing bondo'd and sanded flat along the back, but it will need a some cutting and sanding to get the spaces between the 3 parts to line up vertically.

              I just haven't been in the mood lately to do any work on it.

              I did process more photos from the previous photo shoot though:

                  Those are great picture. Cars looking better every time. Hows the ride with the lowering springs? Too bad you can't go lower. I think I'm going to spend the bucks and go coilover for the nice ride with the super low ability. I have coil overs in my mustang and I love them. I wish the quality companies like QA1 would make a coilover for our datsuns.

                    The ride doesn't feel any worse than it was before. Next year I think I will spend the money on a T3 front suspension coilover setup and re-cut the fenders to stretch the front flares longer front to back. I still have lots of travel up under the flare but the 10 wide wheels already rub when turning.

                    I really want air suspension but I follow a guy on instagram that just did it to his s30 and you have to cut out and rebuild the entire rear strut housings to fit the fatter airbags. Seems like way to much work sadly Maybe someone will eventually make a kit for it one day.

                      How much do you think you will have to cut? It would give me a good idea how much I have to cut my fenders.

                      I need to do the same thing but I don't have the rims yet. I am going with a larger flare on mine with a 17x10 front and 17x11 rear.

                        Currently, I kept the original width of the wheel arch and only cut it up higher. At a glance I feel like I need an extra inch forward. At about half turn left the outside edge of the right side tire juuuuust catches in the front, but once you pass 50% turn you're clear again.

                        I didn't see any clearance problems with the back side of the tire. But if I go lower I'm not sure.

                          Sitting in the garage stored for winter still. Decided to take a good shot of the rims since hadn't really showed them off yet. Next year I'm thinking I want to get them properly sandblasted and powder coated. For now the haggard rattle can chipped paint look kinda works for me.

                                I've cut the left side piece to fit and the middle part is sanded even, still have to cut the right side to fit properly. Once done I'll post pictures, currently it's too cold for tape to hold the parts in place lol.

                                Here's some more pictures in the meantime. I've learned a new editing technique and I like it a lot.
