My JZX90 Chaser, last page has new video and chick on car shots

Recommended Posts

i think the mb's look more tits and will probably end up costing the same in the end since it's shipping to canada eh. they're probably in stock too and better offset than the XXR's

 

plus "taking orders soon! avail winter 2009"... winter 2009 ends in 1 day. got a hunch they won't be shipping any time soon for those gullflame knockoffs. worth the wait for some decent/cheap drift spares though in the future.

Well have not figured out my wheels yet,

 

big bump in the road came today,

 

my Vertex kit came into my work, the rear bumper came cracked in 2 pieces, and the front bumper was nearly cracked in half, thanks to customs or the shipping company. So the stuff got sent back.

 

now i'm left waiting for this claim to go thru, or for the claim process to start. And then get a new kit shipped out.

that's pretty lame... what was the carrier that shipped the aero to you? and how was it packaged?

is it really worth sending it back adn waiting all that time? if its just broke in 2 peices, just fiberglass it back together.

 

 

i was seriously considering having my contact in japan to cut the kit in half to save on shipping.

I was on the phone with the president of vertex when it got dropped off, and he told me straight up, do not accept it, send it back,

 

I could of kept it, hell, it got delivered to my stereo shop, and we have a full wood room/custom shop we could of fixed it that day, but it's still the point they fucked it hard,

 

went thru 2 freight companies, one from vertexusa to canadian customs, then one from customs to my shop.

Bushings are all in, same with the weld diff bushings i ordered back in 2008 before G had the X90 parts, but I think i'm gonna have to talk to him about getting the S9 solid mount diff bushings

Oh shiit. Those subframe bushings look identical to aristo parts. Better message G and see if I can afford some lol.

 

Those wheels look alright I'd say. But I do think the battles will look better since the have less of a lip.

 

Keep up the good work shawley!

Well I just have no fucking luck at all, ordered the koyo rad off FRsport.com

 

my paypal was fucked that day so had my buddie jay (raceready68) order it for me and paid him cash, everythings all good.

 

the rad comes into the post office, jay only has a paper licence cus he lost his other one, so they wouldn't let him pick it up, they say they will hold it till the 25th of feb he goes back the 20th only to find they sent it back, WTF!!!!! idiots,

 

when it got sent back, the rad got dammaged, and now they are just going to refund the money and throw the broken rad away, WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

good thing my factory rad still works no problem

Trying to figure out what color to paint the cage/interior

 

Thinking either all bright green, or gun metal cage with a black interior

Gunmetal will go with the car perfectly. It always seems whenever somebody paints something bright green on their car, it fails in some way or another but it's not like the cage can get rodknock or constant flat tires. Looking good so far.
