So someone decided it would be cool to slash all 4 of my tires.. couldn't even get towed so i had to throw my stockies on to get the car home...



not sure what i'll do to replace them since insurance is the most useless thing ever.

That they are. Some of the things they do just don't make any sense.

in other news, i got my new tires mounted and balanced today so the car will finally be back on the road. 255/40/18 and went up to 295/35/18


also made some progress today on the bumper. one side is just about done, then onto the other side. stay tuned!

Just got back from a trip to Japan and i had the chance to stop by the Up Garage in Saitama. Picked up a handful of goods that i'll be installing in the next couple weeks, the first being these Graphic Ray 6k HID bulbs



OEM on the right vs new on the left



swapped em out in my garage and was too lazy to move the car to get a picture of the output but will do it tomorrow. also removed the day time fog light bulb so now the car only uses the 2 projector bulbs which looks way better imo

Look forward to all the "goodies" you scored on your trip, probably found way too many things that you would like to bring home
BTW, We used to live in Sunnyvale too (back in the late 80s), nice place!

So i started with this..



took out some crap that was in my way..



to install this.. wonder what's inside!



... it's my Greddy/Trust 13 row oil cooler straight from UpGarage. Took longer than expected to fabricate the brackets holding the core in place so i still need to cut my ss lines to the right length. that should be happening tomorrow. Greddy/Trust Grex thermostatic sandwich plate and Greddy oil filter going along to complete the kit
