my next project..

I just picked this up yesterday.

98 SC300 VVT-i silver blue metallic, black leather interior

I'll be keeping the original paint

Just ordered a set of coilovers from TEIN

I'm thinking of RPF1's in matte black, 18x9.5 +15 275/40 in the rear
18x8.5 +40 255/40 in the front.

i like the auto couture aero kit.

Auto Couture, Vertex..

it's between the two.

Hehe.. Already have a 2JZGTE VVT-i 6 Speed Getrag in mind.. But that's not gonna happen till I finish the accord. Might upgrade to semi bigger twins but I'm not going single.. that's for sure. It's gonna be a daily.

I got a good price for it.. 6 g's and some change. THe interior has no tears at all.. Back seat looks like it has never been sat on. Clean title. minor damage to the passengerside headlight but I can fix that no problem..

That's my intentions.. I'll probably track both of them but I want to turn the accord into a full blown track car for sure. I want to be different.

Switch of plans on the wheels, RPF1's the size I decided for are on back order. 18x9 in front, and 18x10 in the rear. I have to wait till 2010 for the set to arrive which really blows.

Anyways since I don't want to wait. I found a set of SSR Type F's 18x8.5+30 in front, and 18x10.5+25 in the rear.

I'm gonna go ahead and try to fit 255/40 in the front, and 275/35 in the rear and flare the fenders out.

Wheels won't be mounted until the car comes back from the body shop. I'm mounting the wheels without tires so I could see what tire size I can rock, how much I have to flare the fenders out, than its going to the body shop.
