You're almost there man. And it looks great. Our 350 vs AT debate aside, I'm glad you are keeping that AT and spending so much time and real quality effort doing everything right. Oh, and ever figure out the babyseat?

Got some custom wheel spacers made for the rear. Since I have a couple sets of 205 rotors, I will likely not be changing the rear hubs any time soon. So these will convert the rear to 5x114 and centerbore to match the fronts.

Ran across this cool little bit on another 185 with the sard MIG.
http://maamaaya.com/page/about-rc.html

Looks like the spring may be adjustable. I need to take a closer look at it.

Exhaust pressure spring tension can be easily accessed by one screw!
However traded meant screws were set in motion in ready-made quality is inferior, adjustment can wrench or needle-nose pliers in stainless steel screws.
More than my own car design point a thud.

How exactly does that work, it uses a spring to open up the exhaust at higher pressures?

I think the spring acts as resistance for lower pressure, and then the higher pressure over powers the spring. I found the adjustment screw last night, but I am still not too sure how to adjust it. I might mess with it some. From other material I have read in the past, I know it partial acts like a silencer as well. So when your driving around normal traffic the car is not as loud, until you wind it out.

He tried telling me I put coilovers on the car since last year and they would not touch my camber, just my toe. Gives me an excuse to sort my setup so I can do my own alignments. I just need to make sure my tires are level then I will get this camber straight. I have their readings, so I have a baseline to compare my gauge to. When I put the car back in the ait, I think I am going to give the brakes another bleed as well. I only bled the caliper when I put it back on, but I think a bleed of the system again will yield more consistent braking pressure.

I had a visitor today.

Mostly working, and sorting out business stuff. Likely start getting alltrac shirts on ebay in the next couple weeks. If your not patient you can hit me up.


Wow, I like that paint. :D

Nice. With those adjusments the red looks like chrome red.

That would be a pretty cool red to mimic if someone was repainting their car.

In a couple years I'm going to be vinyl wrapping my girlfriends Prelude roughing that colour. Either that, or a satin red.

I kind of wonder what it would take to mix that color. Its sort of a dark cherry, metallic. I wonder if a maroon car would be a good candidate for a respray in the color.

Yeah, that looks close. I think gt4times2 might want to see this.

Yes, it speaks to me!!! I love it. Good thing, I haven't painted the car yet.(Looking/waiting for an RC hood). I'd regret it. That color is nice!!! Now, if I could just find that exact hue of red/maroon or paint code. Anyone have a non PS pic of a car that color? I love it!!! Where did you get that color prior to PS'ing it? It doesn't look like the Lexus red/maroon though. The Lexus seems to have some orange in the mix. I want the same dark hue I see in the PS

Thanks Josh! :notworthy:

You'll have a hard time matching that photo for paint...
Best bet would be to find something that you feel looks best by checking out various paint companies speedshapes like so: http://www.houseofkolor.com/speedshapes ... himrin.jsp
