Took some shot after hitting the yard today. Mitsubishiv5 came up on some Suspension Techniques front and rear sway with all the urethane and hardware. We got to my house and I washed my car while he installed the Rear sway.

Naw. These pics were actually taken @ Valley Faire. All the way on top of the parking garage next to Nordstroms. As for the CPR's thanks. Finding these kept me from doing a 5 lug swap.

There are a few of us in the 408 not trying to rice out our CB7's. We are definitely proud owners.

i go scouting the san jose yards every week atleast once, but since carlos used the new inventory check up on pick n pull we saw that they had alot of accords in the yard an decided to take a fat ass trip.

monterey: usually never gets updated

Berryessa: every week there is new shit, just first come first serve

Fremont: tends to not have shit, but when they do its good shit

Oakland: second trip i made in my life there. always come up when i do go.

Blacked out Fogs?

I was doing some experimenting with an already damaged set of Fogs that I picked up from mitsubishiv5. I bought them off him with the intention of having something to experiment with. I haven't seen anyone try this before, however I know I'm not the first to. I took the good Fog light cracked it open and blacked out everything except the actual functional section of the fog light housing. It's rough inside but I mainly did it to get an idea of what it would look like. IMO it's a subtle difference. I'm going to install it and take comparison shots after the OEM harness arrives. Odds are they are they are coming apart again to prep and paint them properly. I might black them out entirely if I do an HID projector retrofit. Here are the first shots I took with my phone.

So here are the comparison shots mounted on the vehicle. It's hardly noticible in my opinion but I think i am going to go ahead to prep and paint both sides properly.

Patience is virtue

So this simple project is leading on. I went ahead and tore apart my second set of fog again, and sent them in to get dipped in chrome. I had my buddy (mitsubishiv5) take the reflecting dishes over to a to a chrome plating company to have them dipped in chrome. However since there were some issues with the shape, chrome wasn't an option. They said that the dishes could be dipped in nickle instead and then polished to a mirror finish. So I confirmed, and this is how they came back.



Trying to stick to the formula I then taped them off and prepped them for paint



I waited till I had time to do this in the sunlight to paint them, unlike my grill. So today we went to the yard to look for treasures before the super bowl. I came up on another pair of yellow fog light caps, and then headed back home to spray the fog reflectors. This is the finished product.





I really love how everything came out. Some more pics will be posted soon after the housings are ready. This was just an update. Hope you guys like it. I'd like to send a big Thank you to my buddy Mitsubishiv5 for all his help.
