    A car with my income = too much trouble

    Well as promised the updates are slow as fuck. After what... 3 years since last post, I have gotten the car painted. Here are some shitty pics. Color is BMW M6 03/2005 - 07/2010 Sepang Bronze metallic PAINT CODE: "A32" Pics telling me car is done Picking up the car Bought expensive car cover to protect the paint job I could barely afford Better camera, still shit photo skills.

    Drift event photos. Everyone waste money!

    Cant find the cord from my camera, but here are some pics some minkara dudes took at the 1jz meeting last sunday. (If I find my cord Ill put what I have up) Ishiai's Cresta, repainted. new half bumper (not sure if I like this or the estima one better) Not my cup of tea but this was atleast interesting to look at Car 工房 car re-done.. looks nice but I still hate that shop Good Example of the day. Rained until about 2pm.. then cleared up.. then about 5 fog started to come in Was digging this. There were about 3 Crowns rocking 1j's. so simple (well not this one) Ishiai again (god I wish I had tools and time to do the stuff he has) This was the most badass dude out there.. Kinda pissed though cause the cars were lined up and no one was going and I was about to walk behind his car to go to the fence (itd make sense if you saw the layout) and the fucker starts reving and burning out like he's gonna go.. so I back up and he finishes his 30sec burn out... then nothing.. not sure if he saw me or if he's some racist dick.. but its japan right? Wanting these wheels super bad Another Ishiai (he was parked next to the Audi mark II the whole event) 180sx rocking a 1j... not a nissan fan.. but *drool Im posting these as I browse.. so nothing is organized. If only I had my camera usb cable.. then again I didnt take that many pics.

    Random 90 shenanigans

    I went there back in 2003. The path has been modified by the city so that you car jumps before the turn based on the speed your car is traveling. At the time was told there were tons of accidents there. The faster you go the worse it is. Quote from the site 写真ではわかりにくいですが、榛名山から伊香保に下りる道路には色々な工夫がされています。いわゆる走り屋対策です。 模様にあわせて道路を波打たせているんです。一般人にとっちゃ乗り心地悪いだけで非常に迷惑な話です。

    A car with my income = too much trouble

    Well damn it's been a long as time since I posted here.. seems to be a once a year thing. I guess I am as poor as I thought when I made the thread title. Well Boring updates. First: Got rid of the exhaust from that asshat company that wouldnt sell me a dual exhaust 3 years ago. Got an R's 90degree dual muffler.. (and titanium tips to pretend I'm rich.) Tips not on yet in first pic Turn computer to full volume (yes I drive around like this... makes me nervous.. till I get used to the drone and then it sounds like anything else.. till I rev) (THIS SUCKS>>> CANT EMBED) Volume up if you want the I was there feeling. ADMIN: You suck at the internet. You're welcome. BUSSAN: Thanks. after trying html code and three other things... Volume up if you want the I was there feeling. http://youtu.be/SI3RjHogZcY ummmm then lately finally got a heat gun and pulled apart my headlights. (have 3 sets and a set of chaser headlights) Right side is with the clear one on (can't tell well unless your outside) was determined to see if I could put some of the inner parts from chaser headlamps into my mark II ones... no go... the size is right but the angles inside are all wrong. So I took the non HID head light cover and put it on my HIDs... perfectly clear again. Actually have money for an LSD right now... but like usual having someone else do the dirty work. Waiting for a decent used one to pop up on YAJ so I can save a few hundred dollars.... maybe I'll even drift... only been 6 years since I got here. (not sure I even want to that badly anymore (T-T)

    A car with my income = too much trouble

    So I went to the 1JZ meeting. Took about 200 pictures. In the process of taking out license plates and putting my gay water mark on them. Some are blurry so I had to delete them. . Also got to talk to the owner of the green mark 2 i posted above. He drove all the way from hiroshima... 8 hour drive.. ish. Sorry for super big ass picture. I have higher res too for anyone who may want. I will just post this car for now since it might interest people more than the x100s. I'll have the rest on my blog... some day. Was planning to talk to this guy and ask him some stuff. Never got around to it though. Might not notice it at first, but his exhaust is coming out the rear door. for those who care.

    A car with my income = too much trouble

    Almost Exactly 2 years ago (6/22/2010) Today (6/9/2012) was raining so sorry for the lighting camera phone so smaller Rear wheels ( bit of poke but im happy) I cannot get my little finger between the fender and tire (rear) its in there tight. Looks like there is space.. but there isn't. and as it turns out.. the front rim is sticking out about .... like 3 or 1 mm.. not good with metric system yet.. 4 years.. and still failing. Top to bottom view. has whatever camber is there from lowering it.

    *****edited this post. Less dick version summary lawyer more trouble than worth no marketable skills no exporting (refer to previous pages for reasons) 98 octane says google. weed will get you thrown in jail then kicked outta japan. Read PermaBAN I worked my ass off to get here in college. graduated high school a year early and took 6 subjects a semester in college as well as summer and winter classes during break.

    A car with my income = too much trouble

    Neither. Went to school, got a degree, finally moved to japan, got an english job. Just have to suffer through the fact that I know my company is screwing me over in every which way they can. Good news... i get summer vacation off with "some pay," but not all of it they are required to give me. Bastards. Hence the reason this shit is taking forever.

    A car with my income = too much trouble

    got off the phone. Apparently just a bad angle so it turns out the front rim is actually sticking out a bit past the fender yay.... as for going lower... I have to drive it around to make sure nothing hits and lower it bit by bit.... atleast that's what I was just told. But of course ill be stupid and slam it when i get home.. fuck up the alignment and probably brake something..... Joking.. this build will continue to be slow as fuck... stay tuned and maybe our grand children can see the finished product.. a classic 1996 mark 2 mint condition after 40 years.... ( anyone got a winning lotto ticket?)

    Thanks. sleeping and thinking about it and seeing LA's cresta again.. I really need to go lower. But I might need to wait on buying arms ect... I still have a side mount intercooler that might be hitting the front tire at full lock. Gonna try to pick the car up today ... hopefully

    A car with my income = too much trouble

    Update... yay...?? Soooo, it kinda took forever. Apparently even in japan... you can't overnight parts from japan ( shitty joke sorry.) Parts took forever and had to test and find out what would fit ect.. ect... These are pics I got today from the shop ( took my car there 2 days ago). First pic kinda makes it look like the front rim and fender dont match up. test fitting the rim stuck out... Obviously it wasn't lowered enough to find out how much it tucked ( i could be mistaken though since i haven't seen IRL yet) side note... my headlights are NOT tinted... I have had them refreshed like 3 times.. keep getting dirty like this. I got 2 sets of spare headlights im gonna open up and swap around when i buy a heat gun finally.. WTB oven in japan (T-T) Second pic is where you can see the fitment.. and the weak pull ( wish I could get it in the fender just a tad more. but it might make a dent if its pulled harder without cutting the inner fender i guess) so after a year.... wheels are finally on the car..... seriously... slowest build ever.. will be drifting in 2020 Info Tires are Front 235/35-19  Rear 235/35-19 i think... or he put on 245-30-19 ( again don't understand tire sizes.. and don't care enough to pay attention atm) Springs R*SR Front 24kg/mm Rear 22kg/mm spacers are 15mm front ( if the fronts dont line up well Ill be getting bigger spacers.) More pics when I get the car..... gonna have to replace alternator
