    i tried to have my friend do a video too but since he wasnt used to my camera, i had done a small run for nothing because he thought he pressed record but it just started the focus and never captured anything lol by then i was thinking i had made the spot hot so we moved on. if you guys wanna see the circles, ellipses and figure 8's i do to practice ill get some video of it :bgrin:

    The DrifteenV and the Sacrificial lamb

    my project car begins! i have been sitting on an 86 NAM as a track project for a couple years now. in that time i have slowly been building up the parts catalog needed to breath new life into this car.

    last on the list is:
    struts and strut mounts
    fuel pump/filter/accumulator assembly
    head gasket set and head bolts
    16v side skirt pieces
    16v front bumper
    door and trunk locks
    manual transmission parts.

    i recently picked up a stripped down 85 euro 16v. it has all the parts my project car has been waiting for so the journey begins!

    here's the project cars current condition upon arrival yesterday.





    pics of the euro to be posted upon the cars arrival tuesday.

    dont mean to blow you out chris but fuck that, i have so many sets of 400e and 500e brakes it's retarded. plus if i wanted, there are at least 3 r129's at our families shop. at most i think i'd go for the lca's but ive already got that squared.

    no solicitation in my build thread unless i ask for a part. keep it in the for sale, wtb or pm's.

    speaking of which, i have a solicitation. anybody have a UK driver (right) side mirror? lol
