Re: My Trueno GT-Apex 20v swap and resto.

I completely forgot about this but for my own horrible memory ill keep it up to date so i can look back on it years down the road. Found this awesome 80's MOMO Prototipo on ebay. Removed from an old E30 track car, even came with a BMW horn button showing lots of age. https://c1.staticflickr.com/8/76...

Re: My Trueno GT-Apex 20v swap and resto.

So i got word from a friend that he was looking for some 8.5J 14" watanabe's to trade for his 9J's. We made a no-cash deal. Which works out perfect since i was thinking about putting some spacers in the rear. https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8691/17464627905_90224954ba_b.jpg https://c4.staticflick...

that's why I tend to pay a little extra and take my car to a motorsports oriented shop for alignments. Or a shop that's willing to let me assist with the alignment.

Re: My Trueno GT-Apex 20v swap and resto.

More Progress: Both fenders are now done and ready for paint. Just waiting on some better masking tape with a fine edge to mask off the black/white edge. Once that arrives, these will be sprayed and back on the car. https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8697/16680789867_17820daf17_c.jpg https://farm8.stati...
