Yeah, I don't know if it'll rub if I drop it 2 inches, though.

Hm..

From what I can see you can do a 2" drop if you roll the inside of your fenders.

So I'm getting a CEL 2 and CEL7 check engine light code.

Any idea what it could be?

CEL 2 - Air Flow Meter signal.
CEL 7 - Throttle Position Sensor signal.

I figured out the engine light code, it was not 2 and 7, it was 27. Oxygen Sensor.

Getting that fixed soon.

But for now, have some more updates.

When I got this car, 0/10 of the speakers were working.

Now I'm at 11/10 working.



If you're wondering why 11/10, one of my rear tweeters isn't working, but my subwoofer works.

Man, you're building quite the collection there, huh? :P

Looks nice though, I've considered upgrading my sound but I'm fairly happy with it.

Nice Touch screen radio

I got a 2.5" in the back and .5" in the front.

I have a lot of new pictures to post up and updates but I keep forgetting to, lol.

Will do it tonight.

Here's a picture of the car last week, before the drop and some other stuff..




When I was first looking into the audio system.. as I wasn't sure if they cut the harness or not or what was going on back there because the stereo wasn't working and neither were the door speakers.

Anyway..




Another one before the drop..



I unfortunately got the GT-S without the voltage meter thingy thing.. so I changed my cluster.






The day after I dropped it, I think.. still needed an alignment.




And here is the most recent picture I have..



I've done quite a few things in these two weeks..

I got an alarm installed with all the good stuff, got my Touch Screen Radio / GPS player on my car, got an amp to power up my speaker doors, ran 4-gauge wire for my subwoofer setup, upgraded my subwoofer amp as the other one was going out, swapped GT-S cluster for better GT-S cluster, got some floor mats for the car, swapped all speakers with the ones I had on my ST, fixed the hatch light (it wasn't working when I got the car), added a brighter LED light to the dome light, fixed the glove box light as it wasn't working when I got the car.. I believe the only light that doesn't work is the cigarette circle light thingy but meh.. anyway.. clear corner lights, clear blinker lights, XXR wheels, alignment and of course, coilovers.

Maybe some more stuff I might have missed, but I'm excited to keep working on this car.

Wow, I love that color.

I'm not sure what else you really could do to it... The outside looks perfect. Is the bumper not aligned with the fender? Or is it supposed to be that way..?

Btw, how much are you into it, total?

Keep us updated! I love seeing what's going on with your cars.
