    Well...I didn’t waste any time getting the car in the paint shop. I had it towed in earlier this week. And as if this morning they were starting the final blocking, before paint.

    Decided to keep the car red, since it is originally red from the factory. But I did go with a different color red from the 2017 Mustang GT350, called RACE RED. I'm excited to see how it turns out.

    Hey what's up guys!

    Definitely been a min since i posted last. But, life catches up to you quick and the FD has just taken up a lot of my attention the last 3 months. Anyway the car is back home and has come along way. My goal was to get it road worthy by April and I am going to hit that personal goal for sure. Here are some updated pics of the car below.

    I plan to enjoy the rotary for a while, while I collect more JZ parts. The goal is to swap the 2JZ in by the end of 2020. But, we all know how projects go :coy:

    Install my new exhaust
    DP, and Catback this weekend, along with my new steering wheel and hub.

    FD Update 4/1/2019
    Put a couple hours into the FD this weekend.

    Had a starting problem with the key, so after a talking with some people turns out the start cut relay failed. So I just jumped the relay....Key works again.

    Following that silly issue, I decided to install my new exhaust. I removed my stock catback, and installed my new Tanabae medallion exhaust. Looks great! but car is still quiet. So I thought I might as well to install TT downpipe that I have sitting in the corner of my garage. That job wasn't to hard, just took longer then I wanted.
    Started the car up, and it did sound better but was still to quiet. So.. I said F* it, I'm might as well install my mid-pipe, and just do full straight pipe on the FD. :drive:
    Ill be doing that install this week along with my new steering wheel.

    Might still have some lingering brake issues.. pedal is hard when the car is off. But when It is on and the booster is pulling vacuum.. the pedal becomes softish again. It does stop the brakes but doesn't feel right. I'm doing the easiest things first and installing new booster lines. I'm hoping its a check valve. Worst case I need to find a new booster...

    Build Update.

    Got a lot done on the car this weekend, and finally got the chance to drive the car for the first time since I purchased it in October. Drove it to the gas station, she died on me going there.. but I think it was just really low on gas. Still got some brake issues I am working through. When the car is off pedal is hard, when car is on pedal gets softer and has a lot of travel. It does stop.. But, its not great and not something i would rely on for day to day traffic.

    I need to adjust my coilovers more, fronts were rubbing really bad on the fenders. Plan to roll all four sides this weekend if my buddy lends me his tool. Also found my coolant reservoir is leaking. I'm going to attempt to patch it up, unless I can find a good used one local

    Other things I knocked out:
    -Steering wheel & Hub install
    -Spark Plug change
