    Brackets and ballasts are installed.







    I just need to do a little more rewiring of the headlight wires, install the bulbs and give the battery a good charging for a test fire.

          well ive been having problems getting the hids to light up. but Im trying to figgure it out. so right now the stock bulbs are back in

          Good news is. the front suspension is back on minus the SK2 upper ball joints(fucking skunk 2) and the car visited the allignment shop this morning and came to work with me. the guy that did the allignment wouldnt let me leave just kept complimenting the work done on the front. Not that im complaining, its always nice to have your hard work noticed and admired

                updates on the front suspension.

                Since there is a meet tomarrow that Ive been planing on attending for the last month and due to the fact that my new ball joints have been finished, but the people at skunk 2 decided thats its obviusly not importand enuff to ship me the parts ive already paid for. /end rant/

                I was left with no option and decided to throw on my blown out SPC kit in order to attend this meet, even if only for a couple of days till the sk2 kit comes in. So on with the pics

                getting everything mounted and tourqed down








                The moment Ive been waiting months for back on all four wheels



                Last night I set toe and caster as best I could by eye and drove it to the alignment shop this morning.

                She had a realy loud valve train tick so I decided I better do a lash adjustment. What do I come to find. one of my V/C studs was striped out in the head So I Stoped by the local auto parts store and picked up a helicoil kit to fix it.

                doing the valve adjustment


                The problem and the fix






                at this point, I put the vavle cover back on, just no pics.


                Now its time to enjoy my new suspenion and go cruisin with the fellas tommarow

                        no, Ive been having issues getting them to light up. when I turn on the lights they turn blue real quik and then Immeadiatly shut off. Ive been to busy with other things to realy investigate whats going on.

                        If anyone has any insight they would like to add about it. please do, and in the mean time im going to try and look into it this week

                          What condition are your ballasts, bulbs, and wiring in? I know they're used but do they show any signs of damage? Are both sides lighting up for a short time and then going out or just one side? Sounds to me like the ballasts aren't giving the bulbs enough current. Also, are any fuses blowing?

                          Your car looks great btw!

                            Thanks man, So my pops just showed up to say whats up and being hes an electrican by trade I decided to pick his brain about it. we hooked up the battery charger, put both bulbs in and turned them on to see what whould happen and they both turned on. So for shits and giggles we decieded to swicth the bulbs from side to side and then one bulb didnt work. after switching them back and forth a couple of times with one bulb working sometimes and the other not working at all. Im thinking that my bulbs are going bad. So at the moment one bulb is working and the other isnt.

                            here is a picture of the HID vs the stock headlight

                              Is that with the glare guard on it? How's the scatter?

                              Comment


                                no I havent put the glare guard on yet. I figgured I would order new bulbs first since the guards will be permenently attached. ill be sure to post pics of scatter and the cutoff when all is finished


                                on a side not the SK2 ball joints came in today. install should happen between tomarrow and wednesday.
