How Your Car Sits

Recommended Posts

Guess I'm going to give up on having build threads here since they keep getting locked (wtf?)......but anyway, more progress on my dad's T5 SE this weekend!  Painted the bumpers and wing last weekend, sand, polish and install this weekend.  Well, we didn't sand/polish the rear yet but we had to put it back on immediately since my dad's DDing this while I'm DDing his '99 (apparently people like to break into cars at my new job so I'm definitely not taking anything nice there :angry:......thank god it's only a temp job and I'll never have to set foot there again after next month!!!).

Hopefully he will be picking up his new wheels next weekend so I can have my Volans back :biggrin:

The V70 looks sweet on volans. What'd your dad buy for it, looks like Atlantis wheels in your photo on swedespeed?

Nope, not Atlantis.   We'd never be able to run 18s with the condition of the roads around here.  They are way cooler than Atlantis, too.

Ah, I see it now, 17" Nebulas. I didn't realize the Neptunes were only 18"

You got it!  Neptunes are 17" though (did you mean Atlantis?).

Yeah definitely meant Atlantis, I started mixing names up as I was checking IPD's wheel name list back and forth haha. When are the Nebulas going on?

They're going on my dad's T5 SE.  The Volans are mine and I bought the zLines on them for my R; they're just on loan to him since the Continental ControlContact Touring AS it came with were scary af and he needed something safe until we found some appropriately special wheels for this car.  Not like I'm driving my R much these days so no point in putting decent tires on that.  I'm probably going to set up a cool photo shoot this weekend with all the turbo cars and then let it sit on the Perfos from the T5 SE for the winter since I'm about to sell the ControlContact Sport AS that the R came with..........for $60 less than I paid for the zLines LOL.

Got the Nebs on the T5 SE yesterday.  Looks sick.  I think my dad has a cooler car than me now.  Not sure what I am going to do about this yet lol.  Getting the Öhlins and M66D swap happening in my R seems to be the best solution, though.

Washed and waxed all the turbo cars today and then did a photoshoot.  The R is done for the year, gonna try to get the T-5R out a couple more times but the weather will have to be perfect since it's tucked away in its building and I'm not washing it again until the spring, so it might be done, too.  We'll keep the T5 SE out until the salt hits the streets.  Not sure what we are going to do if I still have a job I have to drive to at that point though.

Oh had some friends crash the photoshoot too.

Nebulas come in 18" only. If those wheels are 17" then they are replicas.
