Default Project 242ti...."Future R Killa" haha

Bought the car in July of 2005 in Myrtle Beach while on vacation, even though i was looking for an 850r i couldnt let this thing sit and die anymore

Heres the car sitting and beeing used as a beach storage shed, lol


Ended up buying the car and somehow it was able to make the trip to Raleigh NC. Once the car was home we gave it a good cleaning and in the garage it went for almost a year to complete an all new suspension.






Here are some pics of the car over almost an year in the garage.

Off with the old...


In with the new...

looks great. the gold virgos set the car off. looking at the pictures you just inpired me to do the same to my suspension. I will be stealing the carpet idea too.

how much did you spend on the steering rack and where did you get it from?

late
