updated with the story behind my GPW.

thanks for checking this out. This is a straight summery, wish I would have done something like this sooner to have more details to look back at oo well Vtec on


I will probably post pictures of past work when I do current work hahah There is ALOT of custom work that went into both cars that I forget or take for granted. I am a garage rat.

What a great story, I can't think of a better setup with the 2 different S2000's, truck, and trailer, just about perfect IMO. I love the attention to detail. All the best Jon, nice meeting at the Dragon.

Loving both cars man. I keep seeing people having their fenders trimmed by sfactor, but I know standard practice is to roll them. Is there really any benefits or drawbacks to cutting vs rolling or is it just your preference. I ask because I'm in NY and not too far from him and I need to get them done pretty soon but I don't want to do irreversible damage that I will be regretting down the line. Just trying to fit the usual 255/45/17s. Thanks in advance!

Impressive. Got to see the track car last year and hopefully will see the other in the near future. I'm inclined to believe that one must have a beard in order to work on a car at this scale (I watch too much gas monkey garage).

listen to me right now get them cut not rolled!!!! You get more clearance, with ZERO ill effects. Out in NY we run the metro starter pack. Were we run stance boy rims, track guy tires, S~factor cut fenders, and metro front widened fenders. Get on the train CHOOOOO CHOOOOO

I'm liking what I'm reading! I'm about an hour north of NYC so I'm gonna have to get at him soon to get that done. Even though he moved it still isn't too bad of a drive. Who did the front fender modification? I dig it. First set of wheels will probably be the standard rpfs but I definitely want to be able to run a lil bit more agressive setups down the line. Thanks for replying!

All ABOOOOAAARRRDDD!!!!

Damn, John. I remember the track slut way different. I think the last time I saw it was at a Nathan's meet. I was probably still driving my Silver Stone back then too. Subscribing to this thread.
