Picked up 747 about a year and a half ago and since then have been hoarding parts to build it. (original sale post Link)

I finally have reached the point where i can begin to install everything that I have and see what breaks first.

As it sits, the car currently has 144k on the odometer and the motor is tired.

The trans seems okay and still shifts good, so i think i will just install a clutch for now.

Has Evo 8 Seats (courtesy of Mike Gombos), Evo III 16g, Turbo back, bc coilovers, xxrs, supra fuel pump

I started a few months ago by sourcing a 4 bolt rear end from Performance Partout.

Had new rear end installed, new axles, new bearings and bushings

Here is a parts list of what i have ready to go on the car

BBS LM F1 Championship Edition 17x9+35
werapped in Kuhmo Ecsta v720 tires
5 Lug Swap w all new bearings and seals
New F/R Rotors
New F/R Calipers/Pads

Aem Gauges (bought an extra D/side a pillar so i didnt have to hack my oem)
Momo Comp Steering Wheel
NRG Hub/ Quick Release

Damn, looks like you have a NICE list of parts. Saw the link, and you have JDM goodies. I think I hate you.

Just got word that the motor should be done this week so that is a win.

Today it rained it ass off here in MD but i got done what i could under my pop up tent.

My goal was to get the ABS Delete done and get ready to do the 5 Lug swap and install new brake parts.

Was going through my parts and "test" fit the BLOX extended studs that i ordered from JNZ.
they didn't fit at all, after looking on the website and emailing them, "some products may need to be spot welded" applied to me
which i found a little misleading because most of the stuff that they have on their site is pretty specific fitment for our cars.

Didn't sweat it, got the RMA and ordered ARP ones from extreme PSI, lesson learns.

I used the How to for ABS Removal on here link and skipped the stainless steel line brake line install because i had done that previously. After about ten minutes of messing around with all the 10mm wrenches I had, I went to lowes and bought a set of line wrenches<----you NEED this, at least the 10mm one.

Instead of pulling the ABS unit out and up, I took of the front fender liner and slid it out the bottom.

Im sure that installing hardlines from a 1g would be a serious PITA compared to the braided ones that i got in the JNZ kit.

The new lines and the new 1g prop valve made it not so bad.

When i ran the front passenger side line, I ended up taking out the wiper fluid holder and running the line in to mimic the factory line so i could keep it neat, was more work but looks good.

Only thing i have to do as far as ABS is concerned now is take the senors off, will take care of when i swap the hubs, and turn off the ABS light.

Hopefully have the hubs swapped by the end of the week, and then it is a waiting game until the LMs get here from Japan
