Got some fuel stuff, hope this helps. Took a extra SARD FPR I had laying around and got some AN fittings so I can put this on the AE86, hopefully this will help smooth out the Fuel since I have a inline 255 on my sr20det and they can get funny with those on a stock FPR.

Wow I love the diy everything. Sick build. I want my car to be done already but there's always something that comes up.

I am really liking the led red lines. It's exactly what I've been looking for. If I can ever find a set.. lol
Yes - I cut the front end of my car off.
I had frame damage!!

I've been following yours too. I wish this was all me but sadly Merrill is the one with the most hands on at the moment. I wish I had your ingenuity! Keep up the good work. Btw very nice collection of cars you've assembled. Wish I could expand but this one is sucking up all my moneys.

Swapped out my sideskirts with a friend, got some banged up CF technotunning ones, I am going to give it my best to re Carbonfiber and glass them up... hope I can make em look clean. But this will be a task

It's been a while since the last update, so I forgot how wide you wheels are. :)

Thanks cloud- Ya it has been too long, and I love my deep wheels!!!

Well attempting to blend Carbon Fiber.... did not work hahaha. I really did not think it was going to work very good, but it was worth a try. I need to figure out a way to salvage these somehow...

Maybe I will smooth out the reglass and paint over it, with some sort of theme...
