Oh snap i couldn't upload due no internet connection, but since i found a 4g spot i finaly can upload properly now. As mentioned before, my girlfriend and i went on the roadtrip to Bardonecchia. Packed and stacked with a matras, blankets and everything we need to survive the cold ( the van does not have isolation ). First camping place: Luxembourg





We were all set and done to hit the sack when suddenly i could hear the sound of sliding tires, revlimiting turbo boosted engine and lets just be honnest, the sound of awsomeness. My "peepee" went hard instantly as we speak.



A fricking 240SX and sadly a BRZ wich i couldnt get on camera.
The dude with the 240SX was a chill dude, gave me some info on the car. Outside looked like a pile of shit, as he said " not my main goal yet " but damn boy, the engine, the suspension arms and all the other details were simply mint!



Since this roadtrip is on my own expences, here's a finances.

Roadtrip ended, since it was also some kind of a vacation with the girlfriend i limited the pictures and uploads during the trip. Anyway we drove all the way up to Italy simply because one stonebag didnt placed his sign underneed a paper ( #NOTAMUSED ). The bodykit looks S-E-X-Y AS FUCK!




Oh yeah i also recieved my carbon drift mirrors whilest on the roadtrip.

Jaimy's Civic returned from the paintboot. Not my cup of tea, not the paint nor the rims but a happy customer is a talking customer. Last thing to do at this car is installing the exhaust and adjust the suspension and i got 4K in the pocket.

Quick upload before hitting the sack.

Some buddy's met up at the docks of a local lake tonight and there was this guy who came with the dude who owns the S13 Rocketbunny. He drove a mint S13, completely repained and restored, on air and bone stock engine in it. Basicaly a small amount of mods, reason enough for me to pull out my phone and take some pictures. The biggest surprise hit me when he said " it's for sale, doesnt have to go but with the right bid i'll let it go and start a new project. Dude askes 14k for it and im seriously doubting to invest to have A: a better daily ride and B: a car i let my girlfriend drive with.

A happy customer is a talking customer... Well Jaimy is one hell of a happy customer by now. Finished up the Civic with some adjustments, the windowplacer came by and you guessed it, he allready placed stickers all over the damn thing :))



Jaimy just left the shop and i allready got a new customer. Remember the Mustang of my dad's friend? Well my dad joined their club, Classic Drivers Club BE. Basicaly everything that is historical, classic and SCREAMS old farts reliving their youth is allowed. He needed a classic car that justifies his midlifecrises so i found a 66 Beetle with no engine but allmost no rust for him and you can guess it. I need to make it like the one he used to have when he was 18.

But before it looks like his first car ever, i have to start with how it is now:

Since 1: Supra parts are taking hell of a time to get here and 2: nobody seems to be interested in my rp im just gonna drop these pictures and gonna leave for a while...

Beetleworks:
Stripped, Sanded and Primered. Ready for it's parts


Daily driver:
Sold the Evo3, managed to get 300 V$ for it and bought the S13 as a daily/girlfriends secondary car.


Work done to the Daily driver:

Thrown out the airbags, cuz air is for baloons and installed some KW v4's underneed it, which were laying around in the shop that were ment for the RX7 back in the days. Only need/want to repaint the horrible blue'ish collor of the enginebay, rims and undercarrage of the car. Probably going for black if it depends on me.


I'll see you guys again when the beetle is finished.

Thanks but eventhough i like the RP and stuff, it bothers me that the feedback is so low ... Only 3 people give feedback so i dont see the point in keeping it up, that's why i'm going to lay low for a while with it.

if you roleplay for attention then you're not doing it for fun.

Defo not doing it for attention tho, everything but tbh cuz i hate attention. Feedback, that's what i do it for, i dont care if it's positive or negative ( if you ask me rather negative so i can improve ) but 3 pages and jet only 3 people frequently replying, giving feedback etc... Hell i don't even know if i'm doing it right with my RP ... Anyway rant over, like i said, i'm keeping a low profile for now, just to let it cool down before i start posting pics again.

Been 23 days allready? Ohwell Update time!
The Supra:
Havent been working on it since A: i got little amount of time and B: I MIGHT sell it if the offer is right.

The Beetle:
Finished project. Pictures will follow some day.

The HoeVan:
Broke the driveaxle during a hillclimb up in the mountains. She's up for sale but probably end up at the scrapper.

Gf's car/my cruiser:
Well ... ALOT changed. We both worked on this after closingtime of the shop. Turned out more damaged than we both thought ( airride fuckers dragin' n' scrapin' ) so we had to weld in an ENTIRE new floor, engineswapped a 2Jz in it, some japshit exhaust, rims and yes we threw in the airride again. Both me and my girlfriend respect the car and use it when needed, not to hoon.

Before:

After:


The only thing left to do is the front of the car. The bumper doesnt match the rest of the bodykit and it needs a second paintjob.

Dad came by with his 66 beetle today, he absolutely wanted to show his new rims and tires.

Update time:
As i said, i cant be asked to work on the supra. Due low amount of time ( read not enough time to work on a full build anymore ) im puting it up for sale.

What's been done to it since last update?

- Completed the bodykit, all parts that were still missing came in by mail ( had a cool discount on it, had to pay 0 V$ due the problems i had with getting it delivered )
- Finetune of the engine, went from 500+ Hp to 880 Hp
- Rims+tires
- Paintjob, Rosso Corsa with Nightshade flakes. Still missing a clearcoat on it.

What needs to be done to it?

- Clear coat
- Suspension alignment
- Interior electronics need to be checked, got no lights and the gauches arent workin'
- Exhaust, from engine to rear mufler is missing
- Lights need wireing
- Dumpvalve is missing
- Rims need a paintjob
- Trunk is missing the lock, the lock that came with the trunk was broken.

What do i want for it?

Anything above 50K V$ is a sold for me.


That been said, i also bought a new towtruck. A GMC Sonoma with a Chevy 454 big block in it. Again the shell is rusty and beaten up but technical it's a longtimer. It has 200K miles on the clock but the engine got new pistons, new crankshaft, new waterpump etc. I payed 1200 V$ for it.

The GMC's body defo needed some loving and caring. found out the bed was rotten to bits, threw a wrenge in it and it hit the floor underneed the truck :facepalm:
So that means i got a new project on my hands. It is going to be a low budget project tho because aslong as the supra isnt sold im running low on personal budget.

Here's what i changed already:
The bed ( wich wasnt an original GMC ) was thrown in the bin.
Seats, dashboard and steering wheel also joined the bed due molt and rotten leather.
Grinder, filler and primer on all the rust.
Stripped the exteriour, stripped the doorpannels because welding and a layer of Routex ( not sure what's it called in english but it prevents rust )
Ordered new trimparts for the doors etc.




Shall we do a new finance plan right?

Hmm decisions ... Got a responce on the Supra, but not quite what i wanted but the offer was interesting enough to draw my attention. Dude offered his ride and 25K V$ for the supra. That makes the bid at 35K V$, a shitload of original parts, a pile of original documents and even the original Japanese licenseplate. I went for a sneakpeak and have a chat with this lad. He lives at 30 minutes driving from my place and is well aware of what he speaks of.



I wont post pics on the full car, i let you guys guess what's so special on this car ;)

Had a LONG and EXHAUSTING week in the garage the past week. Meeting season is up and going and i had a hand full of customers with small repairs to get their rides shiny and perfect again. No sweat on these cars tho but when Hans came in with is Vento mk3 i knew it was gonna be a week full of 16 hour days. Rearended a van and the car got tossed off in the bushes next to the road. His request was simple: Patch it up, convert it to the US model and drop it low. My reaction: Say no more fam, i got you. Photobook underneed.



Headsup on the Supra:
Im looking into a empty storage building down the road. Been trying to track down the owner of this building to see if i can rent it. IF, and thats a big if, i can rent it, the supra goes nowhere. Made some plans for the future with it if i cant sell it.

To do list for this week:
My girlfriend blew her engine on the Golf MK2, so we gonna pull that and drop a new engine in ( yes both of us fell in love with the supercharged 1.6 engine of the vento ) and patch up the bodywork. Car's gonna get a new paintjob and new rims.
