My homie Kris bought an XB last year and finally picked up some wheels to play nice with his coilovers. He picked up the wheels (XXR 527) and tires (Nankang NS-20) yesterday afternoon (Thanks Tires23!!) then we headed out to Jon Lee’s shop to do some fender work since the sizing was rather agressive (18×9.75 + 215/40/18). Jon put in work and got the wheels to fit awesome. We still some minor rubbing issues but it was getting late so we decided to call it a night. He’s gonna fine tune the fenders this week then the Eggplant XB should be good to go! Hit the link for more!!!
Sup nigglets!? I know it’s been a while, but I live in Canada, where cool cars die for six months during the winter. Thankfully that time is slowly (really fucking slowly) coming to an end, and it’s almost time to revive the car from it’s long, cold, hiatus. Last night my dude Liam came over and helped me tune the new wheels onto the car.
We played with the coilovers, and alignment to get the car to sit how we wanted. Unfortunately my poor choice of tire sizes means the car is not drivable until I get new ones, but this was to get the gist of how the car would sit, and to get me excited to drive it again. It worked. I can’t wait to fucking hang out with my friends and drive around this Spring/Summer. I’ll leave you guys with a few pictures of the car. Just some teasers. Hang in there!!!
Oh and Liam + Shank + Coilover = Good.
So I’ve finally come to the point in my “build” where I’m satisfied with my car, and can look at it and say “Damn… That thing’s dope, and I started from scratch” I know, I know, It’s not a crazy build, which is why I can’t help but put the word “Build” in quotes. I’ve seen countless threads of others doing super dope shit to their cars, Immaculate engine bays, full wire tucks, insane wheel setups, a zillion horse powders, and just some insane things that I have nothing but respect for. The time, patience, money, and knowledge that goes into these builds is superb.
