At like awesome Josh, great work and it does certainly stand out - great job on the whole works.

Been a while sinc I’ve seen a purple 510; Lou - your ears on?

Josh - think you could attend the All Japanese Classic here in North Vancouver on Aug 26th to showcase it? It’s be great to see it out!

Wow! that looks great!

You aught to put in a before/after photo side by side to really show how far this car has come! Great work, can't wait to see it in person Josh.

Sue you can't make the show up here in North Vancouver on the 26th? Just checking :-)

I really wish I could but that's a long drive and I have my son that Fri-Sat. I am attending an autocross with the car that day at Evergreen Raceway though :D

Oh and I switched to RE71R's in 205's instead of the R1R's in 225. With the -5 offset wheels I was rubbing the front edge of the back fender flare. I've seen test's where the 205 is almost exact same lap times as the 225's and my R1R's had kinda lost their stick being so old. The RE71R's are amazing.. and the 205's feel more edgy and less clunky then the 225's. I like..
