Default 1994 eg coupe/ ej2 build.

whats up guys. the name is Julz and im from Massachusetts, sadly. took me a WHILE to find a EG with out any rust/ rot, clean tittle, no damages or anything like that but i finally did it, surprisingly with 105k original miles.
car is in really good shape, except for the paint, which im not too concerned about since that means i get to repaint the car. It is red and originally from Tennessee, so of course the top half of the car is pink

here's how i got it.


eww


FIRST THING I DID WAS POST THESE WHEELS UP FOR SALE . the car was basically bone stock except for some cheap truharts coilovers, ebay front and rear camber kits (all going to be replaced) and these CCW classic 5s wheels that were extremely ugly. personally not my style. Function over stance ALLDAY

Here's some more pics




car came with a brand new dizzy lol. but here is it, basically a fresh start. the interior is all there and complete, and pretty damn clean. engine is 100% unmolested which is becoming impossible to come across around my area. i have big plans for this car but due to the fact that we are in winter, it is going to be a slow progress :/

Here's a picture of the coupe with the ugly wheels. Also, i do want to mention in case you guys were wondering. the previous owner started sanding down the top of the car. he must've been bored asf or something. he did a really sh***ty job but thankfully he never finished it before he made it worse.


got rid of the wheels and threw on some other ugly 16inch rota grid wheels for now. if only they were real TE37's one day...




for some reason, the driver side fender was BUSTED. not sure how it happened but there is no serious damages or anything. literally just the fender looks like tin foil. i went ahead and ordered a new one.

picked up a OEM sir lip, bought some slips with brand new tires. gave the interior a nice cleaning. she gets driven like once a week and due to the fact that we are in winter and im always working, i barely have time to work on the car all i do is order parts after parts after parts. my plans with the car is to begin with all the suspension/ bushing components around the car. once im done with that, im planning on either starting engine work or sending it to paint. my motor choice for this car im thinking H2b

here's how she sits at the moment.

The other day I picked up some real mint GSR blades with Falken azenis all around for a really good price. Favorite OEM wheels of all time





Also started getting ready to strip all the suspension components on the car. Itís still gonna be a slow progress because I really NEED to invest in good tools/power tools

Whatís up guys, itís been a while. Been busy around the house and also with work, but Iíve made some slow progress on the coupe


Stripped the entire front suspension except tie rods since I donít have the tool so Iím leaving it for last

So remember how I mentioned the car came with eBay camber kits.... that was the passenger side, the driver side was bent too ... donít do this to you self guys



Im gonna be running some skunk2 upper control arms about 2 months old that my brother donated to me. A little rusty, but bushings and balljoints are good



And im gonna be selling these BWR Coilovers that I had on the car. Iíve had them for years and now ride like **** lol
Iím gonna be purchasing some new Coilovers but not sure what brand to go with yet....


Did a little bit of undercoating lol, nothing too crazy or fancy..something I have to come back to in the future and do the whole bottom

Make sure to put some grease on those balljoints.
And dude, did you ever cleaned those coilovers?? That coilovers next one won't be adjusting for sure.

Nice progress anyway.

Some update on this slow *** build...

so Incase I havenít mentioned, Iím also trying to keep this build in a budget since thereís a lot more I have to do so I went with moog balljoints and tie rods, supreme bushings, and hard race front lower control arms





I also cleaned the spindles and control arms a bit and painted them with engine paint. Not the best job but something for now




Slowly started putting things back together, Iím only focusing on the front end right now because i plan on doing rear disk conversion in a couple weeks/months so when I get to that, Iíll give the rear this much attention.. and yes I know I shouldíve replaced the wheel bearings as well I kinda forgot to order them and didnít wanna wait


My boy anthony came thru for the tie rods
