My old thread in case you want to catch up: http://archive.vstanced.com/forums.php? ... ast#bottom

Hey i'm Ismael, i'm from Portugal, but live in Osaka, Japan for a few years, i work as a mechanic/retailer, most of you should know me.

My favourite hobbies are drifting and "ruining" any car i lay hands on, so stick around if you like low style cars ! ! !
Anyway here are my current cars:

180SX

Image
The 180SX... My pride and joy, and also my first car when i moved to Japan!
This car has been through so many stages, everything from stock to street low style to Meihan Spec, and it's my main money pit!


Spec List:
SR20(V)ET, with a Greddy TD-06, VVL head, Koyorad cooling system and a few more stuff pushing around 430hp.
Origin Labo Racing line bumpers and skirts
D-Max type 3 rear fenders
Origin Labo type 2 front fenders
Origin Labo GT wing
Work T7R 17x9.0 wrapped on AD08s
Thrash Racing seats, Nardi wheel, 6 point cage
326 power Chakuriki coilovers
Cusco LSD, homemade knuckles
etc etc...

Here's some of the stages this car has seen through my 3 year ownership:

S15


Next up is my daily driver/streeter car:
Image
The Nissan Silvia S15, i got this car about 1 year ago, bought it in auction in Tokyo, pretty much in OEM form and haven't done many mods to it other than some interior stuff, coilovers, wheels and a Koyo radiator...

Spec list:
Nismo LMGT4 18x9 +22 in AD08R tyres
Koyorad cooling system
326 power Chakuriki coilovers
Thrash Racing Zebra print seat
Nardi deep corn steering wheel

Celsior UCF10

Image
The newest in the house, picked this one up about 1 week ago, it's a 320k KM 1UZ-FE Toyota Celsior, that needs some love, my plan for it is a bippu styled build, i'm on the hunt for some parts and i got some already for it at home but i'll update on that real soon!

Spec list:
Tein coilovers (came with the car)
Factory LSD

S2000

Image
And last but not least... (even though it's for sale) The S2000!
This thing hasn't seen much of the streets lately, i'm trying to sell but buyers keep flaking on me so i don't even know anymore, i kinda dig the car in a way, it's reliable and looks good, i'm just not really much of a honda guy to be honest. I own this car for about 2 years now but might be time to let go...

Spec list:
Stock F22C with 151.xxx km
326 power Chakuriki coilovers
AP2 Mugen Lip
Skunk2 test pipe
OEM Formula red color in mint condition/Black interior

I'm gonna ruin it like the rest :lol:

And to speak of that, i didn't have much to do this afternoon so i've decided to test fit my Work LS207's that i used to run in the S13 back when it was black!
They're 18x10 +13 and 18x11 +13 (they used to be squared but i got a bigger lip for the rears a while ago)
I'm running TOYO PROXES 245/40 in the rear and 235/35 in the fronts.

As you can see specs are a "bit" too gnarly for stock body and no camber, but i'm ordering 326 power coilovers(w o w w h a t a s u r p r i s e ! ! !) and camber arms for the rear, since i plan to run a wild setup on this
I've also managed to track down a set of r a r e all clear tailights and clear indicators that set me back about 700 V$ with the shipping and all

Finances: 86853 - 700 = 86153V$

the celsior is gonna be hot!! i almost picked up a ucf21 in the same two tone as your 10 but i get bored of big sedans too easily. That S15 is nutty, such a good look. But that 180SX has one hell of a history too oh man, can't wait to link up and do some stuff together!

I think everyone here could agree that these rims suits the Celsior very well, already felt the savage bippu vibe here :lol:
Now, to wait for it to sit properly......

Thanks to everyone! ( alex876, insolivion, Lagano, Soju, BigSmoke, Nightkid, marcus915, Niatross, NotPerfect )
The celsior will be totally different when i'm done with it believe me on that hahah
Speaking of which:


Measure twice, cut once...


Usually one makes the wheels fit the car, not the car fit the wheels, but there's no way in hell i'm tucking 11's on stock body with the fitment i want so i grabbed my grinder and played a little game i like to call "guess which fender i'm about to cut"...


Image
So yeah... I jacked up the wheel to the fitment i want and unbolted the rear LCA in order to camber the wheel in the right amount (camber plates are on the way) and started cutting. It's always hard to cut up a clean body, but this isn't a supercar or a rare model so fuck it, i sent it... After getting the right amount of flare i welded the fender back in place. And then repeated the steps for the rest of the car, didn't come out too bad to be honest, not my worst work by far :lol:


Image

Image
So after all the cutting and welding i sanded everything down and layed on a thin surface of bondo/body filler to make things perfectly smooth (and cover up some minor mistakes :oops: ). Still need to lay on some primer and send the car to paint.
Also tried maxing out the TEIN coilovers, and the result is as you see in the pictures, rear doesn't sit too bad but it's nowhere near what i want and front sits high as shit, can't wait for mr. Haruguchi to ship me the new coilovers for this thing.


As i'm updating y'all my clear tailights and indicators have just been dropped off by UPS Japan, i'll probably unpack them tomorrow or when i have time!

Now THAT's how you pull off an F10. SOLID STYLE! The craftsmanship on the arches looks second-to-none, reminds me of how SkuraWeekly's S14 with the pulled arches done by Ruvim (same on his S13 too)

The widening treatment works quite well I should say, tidy as well. Can't wait to see it being lowered even further :D
