LoL, I just made the journal 6MT, Pics are on the way!

EDIT:
Actually, I was just looking through my photos and I really have nothing more up to date than the ones in my album on here, it's been a long time since I've done a photoshoot! I'll have to wait a couple months until I'm home again and do one so I have some pics for this album!

IBTL. LOL, no I'm just kidding. Good to see that you started a journal. That mod list is pretty long already. Good job! Some good upcoming mods too.

Thought I would post up some pics I found of the test fit I did with the new Status Ring GT seat while I was home on leave. Excuse the poor photo quality, they were on my phone

Update 2 Feb 2012.
Updated the first page with the current mod list as the F.I. Exhaust replaced the Stillen (which I will be listing in the parts for sale here once I'm home) and I got the GTSPEC braces and GTR start button installed on my last leave.

The mods waiting in the girlfriend's garage back home are growing! Only one month of tour left then about 9 weeks of leave to get it ready for spring unveiling!
Mods waiting for install:
- Koni Yellow's and Swift Springs
- Z1 SS clutch line
- Racing Brake 2-piece open slot front rotors, Powerslot 1-piece slotted rear rotors
- Racing Brake ET500 F/R pads
- Password JDM SS shift knob
- Custom harness bar
- Yokohama Advan RZ-DF matte black 19x9.0 ET25, 19x10.5 ET15

I also purchased a competition clutch lightweight steel flywheel however I will probably wait out on installing that until my stock one starts to wear out so I can have a new clutch and CSC installed at the same time.

Other goodies are new porter cable polisher and full Adams Polishes detailing kit.
Still to buy for the spring is another Status Racing seat, RE-11's in 305/275 and need to get my calipers powdercoated still! Also, another full fluid change is in order. All in all, it will be a busy spring modding but that's the best way to spend the days waiting for a snow free Canada

Great looking seat Edconline! Interested to see your car with all her mods in place this spring and to see her run at the track!

Ed, I got a UPS notice that today was the second delivery attempt. They need to collect taxes from your girl, and I don't know if they will try more than three times, which would be tomorrow.
