I got a set of OE headlight covers a few months ago. Lenses have some scratches and cracks.

I'm about to start on my new project of putting Weber triples on my car. I wanted Mikuni's but I figured parts and sources would be easier with Weber's. And they are somewhat less expensive. This is actually something I wanted to add later on down the line. I decided to go ahead and do it now. I got them from Carbs Unlimited. I also got the Weber filters that you can run over the velocity stacks.

Almost complete. Still a few things to do. Had to modify a few things. It's going nicely though.

Got repop competition steering wheel for my car. And a Japanese hood emblem.

Also ordered my Watanabe R's, Techno Toy coilovers, Fujitsubo Legalis exhaust and Cusco strut tower braces.

I'll post some photo's as I get the parts and get them installed.

I got my MSA sway bar kit in and some Moog tie rod ends and ball joints. Still waiting on my other parts orders. They will take a while. Haven't started on anything yet due to having been sick.

More photo's and coverage coming soon!

Thanks!

Did you order the newer fujitsubo that fits tighter to the car?  What size wheels did you go for?

I ordered the Fujitsubo Legalis fom Whitehead Performance. I got the adaptor to connect to stock manifold all the way back to the dual tip muffler. I'm not sure which version because I didn't know there was a difference.

It hasn't arrived yet. It's coming from Canada so I'm not sure when it will be here. I'll post photo's when it arrives and hopefully some install photo's.

The wheels I ordered are 15X8 0 offset. They will take about 4 months to arrive.

I got my strut tower braces for Whitehead Performance yesterday. The exhaust system still hasn't arrived yet. It will all gradually get here a few pieces at a time.

My T3 coil overs showed up today. Very nice. Got the MSA sway bar kit a few weeks ago. As soon as the humidity and heat eases up. My buddy and I are going to start the installation process.

The wheels will take a couple more months before arriving.

I finally got a Japanese L6 cover. It'll be painted but I wanted to go ahead and post a photo. It's not a big deal but I really like these better than the version we get. I'm excited to have found it.
