just washed her today. you can't tell but i left the lights on for [shizzle]s and giggles.








the driver's side is my 'red headed stepchild' side...bad fender, no mud flap, broken door handle, and dent from someone's crowbar underneath the rear 1/4 window when it was stolen before I purchased it. :tup:

thanks for the comments!! :) yes, the driver's door was slightly open hahaha. i'm wondering how the stock wheels will look with some abrasive cleaner and some 400 grit wetsanding :)

only plans for the front, are maybe a postert bumper cover. if not, then it's going to be a lip and canards with some rear diffusers/splitters

those wheels don't have the factory clear coat over em do they? just wondering b/c when I had my 92 stockers I had bought this chemical that removed the coating and they looked like new after. to be honest I'm not sure about sanding(just have no experience with it), but I'm guessing it should be ok.

don't know if they came with teh factory clear coat...but i've seen these wheels look almost polished. i'd like to resemble that..well at least the wheels lol

i might put on some mother's mag/alum polish, and use some cotton wood polishing fiber to see if that does the job.

yeah thats how mine looked when I removed the clear coat, they looked polished, actually they are more shiny than the 88-89 one to being with though. but you can also polish th eedge and paint the center for that race look, that is if you like that look.

i'm usually full blown crazy looks like some 18" Konig Imagine's or Prophet's, or stock...haha

i was thinking of painting grey/gun metal, but there's lots of members and people that have that look...so don't want to copy TOO much...heh

yeah I hear ya, that was one of my main reasons I didn't get the gunmetal center w/polished lip version of my summer rims(got the Hyper silver with polished lip) instead. But now I want to change and go to that look b/c I figure my car is different looking enough with the kit/color and all to pull it off. So i', looking to sell my 17's+tires.

maybe because it's an 89 homie ;)

hahaha

as for suspension, I might just do the fronts....the rears are fine for now, it's just the 3+" gap in the front is what's disturbing..lol (maybe some tokiko struts, stock springs)

tint is on the way...hopefully some 12% in the next few weeks ;)

and the wheels...they are gonna stay for now...but looking at some 195/45ZR rubber hehe

oh, and the mirrors and turn signals are going to be painted flat black and stained glass amber, respectively

That won't fix the wheel gap problem though.. so with AAS the rears adjust too right? So with the stock rears, you can adjust the back but not the front right? That could be interesting...

are you sure it won't fix the gap? tokiko struts in a Z with stock springs drop it 2" lower than stock.....

and yes, all four struts have the AAS motors. I actually think it would be nice to have a lowered from end, but keep the rear stock...because the rear is only about a 1.5-2" gap, instead of the almost 4" in front.
