# Bad.Compqny : Sick RP fam
Thanks. Nice Mark II too :D
Typical me starting a new page.

Added 39 seconds later:

# Lagano : Last week we began swapping parts from the S14 Silvia to the 240SX and vice versa. First we took out the interior because Skip wanted to keep his S14 RHD, that means the 240 chassis needed some modifications before fitting on the RHD dashboard and steering rack. Now we could swap the LHD dash in the Silvia but we decided to keep it RHD as well cause it's a JDM car, after all. So we put the 240SX dash on sale and quickly got a deal, the buyer will install it in a S13. Before that we bought another JDM dashboard for the Silvia.


After the interior work was done we swapped the running gear and body parts. The Silvia still has the Navan bodykit cause Skip had another kit in mind for his S14. SR20 is also staying in it for now, so the Silvia is almost done! I only have to fit the headlights cause i cleaned them today, they were pretty faded.


Now on to Skip's 240: The most noticeable thing is the 326Power bodykit which we got from the UK a few days ago. Other than this it looks just like the Silvia when it arrived. We'll see about the engine though, maybe we'll swap in the SR20 but we also have some other ideas. ;)


That's it for now, both S14s will probably get resprayed in the future, well both of them are black but there is a slight difference.

Just gonna quote the last post.

Nice conversion! I didn't know that it is illegal to register a car although it technically is a same vehicle.

That would've been possible but more expensive then to do what we are doing now. We are just transferring the parts from the JDM car onto a USDM 240SX chassis and vice versa, then we are going to resell the JDM Silvia with the 240SX parts.
Hopefully this makes sense.

We tried to do that but the law was so strict that even the name stopped us registering it sadly.

"I don't need brakes, they just slow me down"

It's meeeeeeee
Back at it again with the 370z

Anyway


Today I had some free time so I decided to fit the Brembo brake kit I got with the car from Boostio.
The old brakes were junk, this was needed so badly and o h m y g o d does it feel better.

I started by removing the wheels blahblahblah you know how to do this.

picsit





Took it out for a rip once I was done, it feels way better than anything I've ever drove.




That's it for today probably, unless I crash or something idk

So as you've heard from Phonexius, me and Skip are in LA at the moment to help him with the shop and his newly-bought E31. It was a pretty long trip and we were working on Skip's S14 before that so i didn't really have time to post anything.

Anyway, here's what has changed.
3Style decided to do some changes to his 180 after a while, he changed the bodykit to Type X and it looks good just like on his previous S13.


He also traded the front rims for AVS 5's and changed the taillights. He's really a kouki fan! :D


Moving on to my MX5: After some browsing on good ol' Craigslist i found a stock hood for only V$40. I also bought a set of headlights, they work perfectly. The only problem was that the hood couldn't close because of the engine cover so i had to take it off.


The Miata was then ready to go, so i visited the DMV to register it! I ordered a special 46 star plate for it, it cost a little more but it really fits with the color.


I registered the Chevelle too, it was built as a track car but there aren't many tracks around here so i decided to drive it on the road. Now it has the new rims that i already showed you, i wanted to upgrade the suspension as well so i bought coilovers for the front. However i didn't find any rear coilovers so i just bought a set of aftermarket shocks and springs instead.

We headed to LA on monday, Skip borrowed my 350Z and i took the Chevelle cause i really wanted to drive it.

We're currently busy with the engine of Phonexius's E31, also Skip found a new project car which he will tell you about soon!!

9/25/2017
hey, is that a shit on wheels?

ayyyyy lmao
Back agaaaiiin with another car because it's not like I have enough already haha ;-;
help

So as Lagano said we are in L.A right now with Phonexius, and since we're staying there he "persuaded" me to get a pos to use as a "drift beater", if you want to call it that

Anyway


A couple days ago we went to LAX to pick up my brand new BMW E36 318i/328i/broken/pos for V$700 (real advert, taken down)
Both engines were not in the car when we picked it up as he was swapping the car to a 2.8l from a previous E36. The engine just needed to be connected to the gearbox etc, it only took a couple of hours to get it running.
Obviously being this cheap it wasn't gonna run right......
and it didn't.
We have a misfire on cylinder 3 but it's most likely a shitty spark plug or something easy
hopefully, i don't need another money pit
It's currently sitting on some replica rims that I'm gonna trash since two are cracked and tbh they ain't that nice
and it also has some bad brand ebay coilovers which are blown probably.






370z does exist, and so does the S14


The 370Z has gone through a minor change in the past couple days
I swapped the AVS F7 alloys for Advan RGII that we brought with us from Oklahoma. They are 18x10 and since they are smaller I can go lower
so it's kinda lower now, it's tucking tire basically.
This is my daily.
All of my cars are now registered too, it was V$100 for the plates for the S14 and 370z since the E36 was already registered.
It's sorta what I want it to be for now, I don't see myself doing too much more to this.
Not really feeling this car anymore.
That's all for today really, might update some other day for the Big S14 reveal
ooooooh

The BMW looks nice.

Also can I have the ripoff wheels as I need something to run the Golf on? Even if they're rubbish, but they'll do well in their purpose.

As well as the 370z looking excellent and OEM-ish.

You can have them when I find wheels to put on, one is completely cracked all the way around but it'll be fine

The actual reveals.




So if you didn't get the memo I got a fully legal JZX90 in America, where have you been.
So, I sold the 370 since I said I didn't really feel the car anymore. It wasn't amazing and to me it was a bit boring.
This will be my new daily.
I went to CarMax and got an offer of V$11,500 for the 370z.
I took the offer since I would be making a profit when I bought the JZX for V$9,200.
I then went to JDMExpo where they had the JZX90 in stock for a while now. I asked about it and sorted out the deal.
I earned V$2,300 from buying a better car.
FRAUD







JZX90 Specs n shit

-2JZ-GE from stock (3.0l)
-Cream interior
-Japanese tints
-Dented af exhaust
-Not registered (yet)
-Seats and steering wheel need to be replaced
-Vertex Lip kit
-R34 GTR Rims



Yes, the S14 is finally shown off.
So I started off by changing the paint to a Metallic Candy Red. It really pops in the sunlight. Or any light.
I also bought a set of Work VS-XX's for V$1,440 from Craigslist LA. They came with stretched Dunlop direzza's too. Paid for these in a different update.
The Passenger and Driver seats also have been replaced from stock R34 seats to Bride Vios Lowmax for V$1,500 straight from Bride.
It's also registered now too.



E36

Nothing much has changed really, we just fixed the misfire, tool off the snapped exhaust and replaced the cracked unknown rims with steelies. The unknown rims were given to Jfernando.



That's all for now; bye till the next one.

Hey guys, i'm kinda late with this update because of more important stuff which i'll tell you about later.

Anyway, i got this front lip for the Chevelle. I didn't like the intercooler sticking out and this did the trick, it makes the car look lower too! I love it, i'll just have to drive a bit more careful now.


I also installed a cup holder and a boost gauge. The Apexi FC commander needed some adjustments to fit with the LS2 but now it works perfectly, i also turned up the boost just a little. :D


Later that day i tried out Skip's E36, he fixed the misfire by replacing spark plugs but the engine still doesn't run very well. We'll probably have to take it apart to find out the problem, or in worst case scenario, swap in the 4 cylinder that we got with it.

Meanwhile 3Style was still in Oklahoma to prepare his 180SX for sale, check it out in the used car section. *LINK*

Bye. But not really.

So like Lagano said that we have more important stuff to tell you about, I am gonna tell you.
We are going to Japan for a while (Yashio, Tokyo specifically) and will be living there for some time too. In my case, permanently.
I am leaving the guys at Side to Side and will be living in Tokyo from now on.
I sold the S14 for V$15,000 and the guys gave me V$5,000 as a goodbye gift. It's sad to say bye to the team, but it's not really a goodbye after all.
I left the JZX90 and E36 to the guys to have as my goodbye gift to them.
Lagano is coming with me for a while but will eventually be coming back to the USA.
A new branch of Art of Wheel will be opening too in Japan; and on this topic Black3rdgen will be taking over the LA Branch, but we will still be taking orders.

Bye guys, see me on my new thread.

Another trip to Japan

So now i'm in Yashio with Skip and i love it already, there are cool cars all over the place. I don't really have anything to do for now because my S14 is still on the way from America. You may ask why did i bring a rolling shell if there's loads of them in Japan. Well, a S14 Silvia is illegal in USA, we only used it for parts there and i'd have to export it anyway if i was selling it. And don't you worry that it has no engine because we planned everything.
With the car i also brought a RB26DETT which Skip bought a long time ago, we had some ideas to use it but none of them really worked out.
The main reason for this trip is setting up the new Art Of Wheel shop, but i'll have a lot of fun on the way! :D

I'll post some more when the Silvia arrives.

We'll have to go on a massive UpGarage haul before the weekend. I need to get some parts to make my 180 sorta drift ready for Nikko.
