+1 for future fab!!
this experience with Jon was MUCH better then my last

Nice cage bro, is it finished?
thanks, its finished for the time being

What about the A piller?
Dont need A piller bars for Tandem.  The second half of the cage goes in once im ready for XDC. (A piller bars, dimple die gussets, Halo bar, door "X" bars.)

I also got a Falken Ziex 195/50R15 mounted on one of the new wheels to test fit....  50 series is too small of a profile, and the Falken 195 is easily a inch or two WIDER than the 205/60's that came on the wheels, so naturaly i cant turn more than 15 degrees.  Im now looking for a 195/55 in a brand that doesnt run wide like Falken or Federals do.  At least mounting is free.

If you put your ncras on backwards, would that give you more room for the tire?

But that would also give me positive camber before a camber plate adjustment, and would limit my adjust-ability. 

The 205/60's I have are real close to fitting. But in comparison this falken is more like a 215 not a 195.  If I get some negative camber it'll tuck the top away from the fender.  That combined with a proper size tire hopefully will do the trick.  Hopefully

....does this mean what I think it does?

Did you get sent to your room young man?


What I did to solve my camber and front suspensionissues was simple: get s13 suspension. Since there are multiple ways to get there, its hard to figure out what to do: ill post up ma findings once I'm done installing everything. I switched to a manual rack as well, so you can only figure the mess of things I'm going through.

Keep at it man, coming along nicely.

Put the silvertop together.

Not forever, just the time being.


I'm fine, I just bought myself a pretty pricey bumper last night.  So, my cars are not my priority right now.


The silver top is all here..  It can go together.  I'm just not at all concerned with my car at the present time.

Found these wheels on C4AG for a decent deal. Look like they might be the same as yours. They were called Spectrum Mesh

Added horsepowers via stickers





and this stuff too




T3 camber plates, T3 Tension rods, T3 LCA's, T3 Knuckles w outer tie rods T3 NCRCA's, AW11 Manual Rack with NST spacer, new ties, nearly new boots.

slight issue with the knuckles.  they need a small bit of notching to actually fit the bolts for the struts in so those had to wait....  but they are assembled.   Painted, Strut tube spacers, KYB AGX SW20 shocks, TRD 8kg springs, T3 Camber Plates.

How ever did tighten down the bolts on the tension rods with such little clearance?  8)
Car is coming along quickly.  Definitely needs more unicorn though.
Why do noobs always call their hatch a hatchi but no one ever calls their coupe a couchi?
