# Crazy Eighty Eight : I'm I the only one that knows that rice is actually derogatory and subjective and not based on how a car looks as the term "rice" refers to Asian exported cars in America in relation to Asias biggest export "rice" ?

But I digress bring us a blast from the past make it as crazy and as offensive as possible all hail the "rice rocket".
I know that the term also refers to that, but the term "Rice" has evolved from it's previous meaning to what it is now. The car scene got more judging and having to build your car to what other people believe to be cool has lost the true essence of modifying your own car. It's why I love this era. People wanted to modify everything they could.
So blast from the past is coming.

Whether people like it or not I don't know but at the end of the day, it's my project.

Livery time.

So it's time for the "big reveal" kinda post.
Me and Lagano have been working on my 180 to get it finished and running properly.
So now is the final reveal.




I've been making this livery for a while now and got it printed at Art of Wheel with out in-house printer.
It's bright and stands out a lot but it's exactly what I was aiming for



The engine bay also got re-painted with a purple floral design-pattern thing. I love it so muucch.
oh yeah, the 1JZ is working fine too. The power is mental and the sound is to die for.

Impulse Purchases.

So yeah....
I bought a EJ2 Civic.
It has a SOHC D16 in ok condition and....
windows?
uhhm
I kinda want to aim it towards 2001 styling, like fast and furious, but I would probably get stabbed if I did sooo..idk





It cost V$1,450 which isn't bad I suppose.
No real problems, no rust either which is really good.

But that's it for now anyway, bah felicia

My game crashed just as I had the car built so I had to rebuild it and I must have forgotten to remove it.
I'll remove them for the next post though, thanks for the info.

12/20/1999

Nothing big, just a few changes to the Civic.
I went to UpGarage and bought a few things online too.
I bought lowering springs, a 5 lug swap, a set of BBS LM DC rims and a Bomex kit for V$3,090 in total.
The Bomex kit is coming from a different country so that won't be fitted until it arrives in a few days.

The 5 lug swap and lowering springs wasn't too hard to do, it already had coilovers but they couldn't go low enough for my needs.



It certainly looks a lot better lower and with new rims.




Took it out for a drive after and took a picture with my old camera.
Handles a lot better with the new springs.



That's it for today, Bomex kit and turbo coming soon.

New Wheels....again...

So I got new wheels for my 180SX...
the Dori Dori's weren't big enough and didn't really match my style.. so I swapped them for a set of AVS Model 5 in blaaack.



It looks gangster asf now



Saletl: I don't really know about the Skyline tbh. I don't really feel motivated to work on it right now so it's just sitting there.
The engine is also here so you can pick it up right now if you want to.

oh hai

*dust off*
It's been a while since I posted here... probably because my arm. Yeah. My arm.
I'm just lazy
Anyway, it's healed fully although still a bit weak - I can drive and kinda work on my cars, so it's enough.

I had a load of free time while my arm was snapperoo - i found some good deals on parts. I bought a set of SSR Vienna Courage in 19 inch for the Skyline and custom white Chuki tails for the 180 from Marcus, for ¥281,000 in total.

The Bomex kit for the Civic arrived too - should be fitted soon.

ok ao stop working its ok


The new wheels really fill out the fenders, thankfully.
Gap with the old wheels was insane.
New exhaust sometime too, I know people hate it lol.

This is the only pic I have right now because I'm pressed for time since I'm back at work. Bigger update soon.

Moshimoto Tyres


baaack
and picture heavy btw

So this is an update going over mainly just the Civic. I had planned to update on everything.....but I just didn't.. so this will do.

So basically the kit (besides the hood) has been fitted. Nobody sells the EJ2 Bomex hoods anymore so it's gonna be hard to find one but I will eventually.
Hopefully.
I have had the kit for a while now but I just never fitted it. I had some free time so I decided it would be better to fit it instead of leaving it to sit in the hallway in my house.



Took a while to remove the old bumpers and skirts. It was hard to fit the jack under the car, it's lower than I thought tbh



The garage was kinda busy today, we had an AE86 and a JZX100 Mark II.




I loved this JZX100 - it was super low. It could barely get in the door without scraping.



It was running staggered CST Hyper Zero and Work Vienna Kreis and was tucking haarrdd.
May have the JZX bug now. Might have to pick one up some day.



Anyway, back to the Civic - I had fully fitted the kit after a while and it looked sooo good (to me)



But now for the biggest and my most favorite part - the wing.



I really think this sets off the build in the way I wanted to. It has that 1999 feeling imo.



Next up is to replace that crusty exhaust tho

Took the Civic out for "photoshoot" once I had finished - after all I still needed to drive this home.


/\ loved this shot for some reason



That's it for now anyway. I love how the Civic looks currently and next thing up for it paint and other little things - like white tails or y'know, turbo.
bye for now lol
