My turn for a build thread.

I traded in my 06 Nighthawk Black Pearl FG2.........






June 6th 2008 I picked up my 08 Taffeta White FA5.










After having the car for 10 days I had to leave it sitting in my driveway for almost 6 months while I finished off my assignment overseas. While it sucked being away from my car for so long after I just got it, it gave me time and resources to save money so I could buy many parts.

So after a long nearly 6 months I come home...... and out journey begins...

Got home and she was just as I left her.



Unwrapped. OEM car cover is awesome. Was damn near as clean as when I covered it, and no scuffs or marks.



Started up on the very first try.


First parts go on the same day: Corsport Shifter Bushings


Next day

Broadway 270mm Flat Mirror


Mugen Visors



Hybrid Mirrors




And then the real work begins.....








Wrinkle White Powdercoated Valve Cover, Mugen Oil Cap and JDM Oil dipstick.


The money maker finds its new home.


Almost finished.


Customlightz Retrofit TSX Projectors w/ E46 Replica Shrouds



All finished!!!!!!

And my dyno run.
