    Re: Project Aerodeck

    Made some good progress this weekend. Front and rear top hats, koni yellows, G/C sleeves and LCAs installed. Huge shoutout to Cheddas. Not only does their shit look fucking bonkers but it fits exceptionally well. Everybody walking by my stall today stopped and looked. Hurry up and make more parts!! Haha jk but seriously. Im going to be running everything they make. Next project is to find a seat bracket for my Bride Zeta and design a t-line sub box for the back.

    I did start polishing the valve cover tho. Intake manifold and exhaust heat shield is next unless someone can sell me a really nice tubular manifold. Id love to have one of those.

    Wow i really appreciate the love guys. Hopefully this will bring the 3g some much needed recognition. And no man! Share away! Tag me, my name is Ben Drinkard.
    Btw if anyone has a nice tubular exhaust manifold or dc strut bat send me a message. Or any really rare 3g parts honestly. id love to have them. Did Mugen make any parts specifically for the 3g? Im still looking for a mugen mf204 valve cover.

    Thanks. Considering the car only has 120k id assume most of what it came from the factory with. And im not really concerned with power from the stock motor as the car will be k swapped when the car gets back stateside.

    Re: Project Aerodeck

    Haven't updated this but I'm almost back to the states and ready to make some progress. Ordered Cheddas UCAs and radiator stays as well as Fortune Auto 500 coilovers.
    Talked with Jordan the owner of Cheddas and Kseries mounts should be ready at the end of the year so I'm really excited to get the swap started. Decided to go with the K20A with 6spd and factory LSD and utilize a S2K cluster. Still need to order cheddas traction bar and his triangulated front strut bar.
    While the swap is going on I will be pulling the interior and seam welding the whole chassis as well as fabbing up a triangulated strut bar for the rear and designing some underchassis bracing.
    I'm overseas for another 5 weeks then it'll be time to get to work. Been busy dealing with other projects and it's hard to get anything done when you're on the other side of the world. But stay tuned for updates and more shiny things!

    Re: Project Aerodeck

    Just realized there are a couple things I did before I left that I never mentioned lol. I sold my Bride Zeta III and installed one of my AAR Weds Carbon seat and a new steering wheel setup. Chrome extended hub, chrome NRG quick release and a Blue Suede Personal wheel. Sooooo Fawncehhh...
    I also found a few rolling shots from back in Japan. Excuse the quality they are by no means professional.
    By the way if any of yall want another 3g dude on your IG my handle is Boosted_Ben_
