2-27-15. Bolts

Ordered some new OEM Honda bolts for the rear trailing arms so the Civic Type R 5 Lug conversion can go on.  Been busy with life lately so the car has been on hold, but the car will be wrenched on soon enough.  It’s been a very very slow build these past few years. This year the car will come back to life and there will be seat time at the tracks again!

Ordered this JDM CTR Rear Bumper Support Re-Bar to replace my oem EJ8 one since I cut my rear bumper. It only weighs 2.8lbs compared to the oem EJ8 one which is 12.65lbs. I’ll be cleaning it up, sanding it down, and painting it flatte black to match the rear.

Here’s a self-custom Hot Wheels Mini-Me of the RunIT Garage EJ8 from a few years ago. It’s not the best custom job out there, but it’s decent for amateur work.  It spends it’s life inside the little plastic garage away from the dust hanging on the wall along with the other custom and factory Hot Wheels.  It’s all about the car love…tiny toys to big toys!
