If it's only the liners, perfect!

The x9 et35 may still rub depending on height. When I had x10 et25 up front, these x9 et35 were in the rear, I needed a 3mm spacer to clear the RLCA. More of a problem with ride height though.

I am on a more conservative alignment now, -1.3* front but if -2.0* clears x9 et25 maybe I'll go to -2.0 again.

Some updates!




New pads (Hawk Ceramic) and rotors (Adams Rotors Drag 2 pattern)





Got a bunch of body parts painted and installed
ASpec front lip (rep)
Type-R side skirts (OEM)
ASpec wing (OEM)
Aspec rear lip (to be installed)






Need to find a replacement hood with better paint, repaint this hood, or find a carbon one?

Congratulations, Circuit! She looks great!

I've never seen a rotor pattern like yours; do you know what it's called and how it helps expel gases under breaking?

Looks like your body shop did good work on your pieces. What kind of hardware did you use for installation?

You beat me to it; I have some pieces that are currently with a local shop getting worked on.

Too bad we are on opposite ends of Cali. Both of our cars have come a long way in a short time!

The rotors are from www.adamsrotors.com. Its a norcal based company that is more popular in the Euro crowd, but they make rotors for almost any car. Its their Drag 2 pattern. Not sure how much better than normal slots they perform, but they sure look cool

Front lip - 3M double-sided on all the flat portions and self tapping screws in the fender wells
Side skirts - All OEM clips
Rear wing - Had to actually drill out all the rivet nuts and install new ones. Used stainless M6 hardware.
Rear lip - I bought all new OEM hardware from Honda. Also got new bumper support plastics since mine are busted up and the bumper is all out of shape.

I plan to make a trip to LA at some point. We should meet up when I do! Want to visit all the famous car spots for photos - Neptune's nest, Toretto's deli, Toretto's house, Angeles Crest highway turn off (Matt Farah), Bob's donuts, etc. etc.

Wow buying a house certainly slows car build progress Here's a ton of updates over the last couple months. I picked up replacement front fenders and a hood in much better paint condition than my originals, but no photos of those.

Spoon Oil drain plug, oil cap, and radiator caps








Picked up a bunch of Comptech stuff for an awesome deal with trades for stock parts






Replaced all 4 motor mounts with Hardrace (#6676). Rear was the worst. The DIY on here helped a ton.















While the bottom half of the header was out, I figured I'd install the DC Sports RH I had sitting around as well




Current state after a fresh wash




I have a Casale Design low rise wing that needs paint and am waiting on a CF exhaust shield for the a-spec rear lip to finish off the exterior. K-pro and I will be at a good stopping point for this daily Well ... maybe some seats

I have never seen that Casale Design spoiler before, but I think I like it more than that A-Spec wing.. however I don't have any spoiler at the moment so anything is better to me lol.

Looks good! If you wanna sell your A-Spec wing, let me know!

Less than I would have spent building the E36 I almost bought before this

Yeah I like it a lot. It uses the same holes as the OEM wings, so if you only have the lip spoiler, you will have to drill holes.
