Thanks! Well... I know it’s not trivial knowing how to weld, but that was really the only skill (on bike frame tubes) I had before starting this project. Really never done sheetmetal seriously before and knew very little about vehicle structure. I’m starting an EV project from zero right now. Go for it!
Thanks :) I got sponsors and pulled out the stops to have a shot at SEMA...
Good points. The short ram intake came with the car, I actually bought the stock box for smog and it seemed to offer up more torque at low revs. I only put the short ram back for shows. The silicone hoses I bought were supposed to be orange but they turned out to be red, I shoulda played it safe with black. Removing… Read more
It’s my TT inspired two-week art project that happens to be rideable.
I originally bought that wheel, in a broken state as expected, in order to make a ceiling lamp. When the LEDs gave out on the lamp, I dismantled it, repaired the wheel and put it on the bike.
Hahaha best one I’ve heard in a while
Guy managed to take a picture of my car’s ass photobombing the E39 Touring (stuff of my dreams, Mike O.) but not the car itself. So shameless plug courtesy of Mack’s camera...
I think that’s the Ford Fairmont Durango, and it was definitely blue not black unless there were two.
Thanks for the props and suggestions - I made a conscious decision not to do that, in favor of preserving the clean lines. However, if you look at the third pic from the bottom, there are two shock tower braces running into the bulkhead. In Part II of the build thread, you can see that behind the bulkhead is a… Read more
The Evo rim is 18x8.5 ET38. So 215 is almost exactly the nominal width of the rim, which implies a mild stretch.
Yes they are. 245/40s wouldn’t have cleared the arches, even static. The other choice would have been 225/35s, but since this is still a truck, I wanted the taller sidewall of 215/40s.
No I get you, honestly if I consider solely the look of the rim face, I do have a slight preference toward the waffles. But taken as an overall package, and especially when you see it in person, the Evo rims have an oomph that the waffles lack, that feeling in your gut. Read more
The rear is from Ikon Motorsports. It’s a one-piece diffuser style lip, but I wrapped only the two sides and left the center black to make it look more like a real diffuser. The front is good old Home Depot garage door seal. I just ordered an OEM Prelude lip for the front - with the new 18"s it really needs it!
Not (yet) selling the one I just made, but how about it? 200hp, 20+mpg, carries two full size bikes with cargo room to spare. And it’s also an outdoor movie theater. For serious.
