Great work, and thanks for coming back to update! Nothing tells a story like a good "old fashioned" forum build thread. Instagram can't tell a story, pictures with written word, like you can here. Keep coming back!

Got these from Steve at H-motors and they are pretty clean. I am interested to see how they will do against an R-comp tire considering the spring rates aren't much different from stock. The rear rate is actually stock but now its a linear rate instead of a dual rate spring like factory. Some fortune auto 510s are definitely coming in the near future, but I wanted something sporty and slightly lower than stock for the cars maiden voyage. Keep in mind i have NEVER driven the car and I want to enjoy it stock first. (almost )


A little scratched up but really in great shape considering the age.



I forgot to mention the 24mm ASR sway replacing the factory 96spec 22mm. I actually had this as a leftover from my DB1, and since ASR was smart enough to design all of their kits around the same bar (DC2!!) I was able to just transfer it over. The 24mm bar is an absolute MUST have in my opinion It really changes the attitude of the car and especially helps out with rotation when you have such low rates in the rear. I have always loved the feel of a slightly under sprung car with the ASR bar.



Also from the DB1 is my 98spec ITR SRS wheel, I got this from a good friend a few years ago for a great deal and have really liked it since.










The last little photo update is for the cooling system. I purchased these coolant housings while on vacation with my girlfriend Texas. We stayed on South Padre Island for a week and then headed up to San Antonio to visit her family and attend her little brothers wedding. While in San Antonio i was having the ITCH really bad and started looking around for local car enthusiast and shops and happened across these sickbird products on Ebay. I contact the seller and said i was in San Antonio and could pick them up. She actually met my girlfriend and I at her friend Justin's shop No Corners Cut Fabrication and as soon as I walked in they were both super friendly and awesome. We did the deal and she gave me a cash discount, then Justin and I got to talking fabrication and before you know it we had welding helmets on and were sharing tips and secrets and laughing and having a great time. So the whole sales experience was great and we made a couple great new friends in san antonio and justin and i have been sending fabrication pictures back and forth since. Its crazy, no matter how many years I play with cars it always amazes me how many nice people I meet and just instantly hit it off with because of our mutual love for cars. Long story short +1 Weld/Car Bro!

So anyhow I am going to be repurposing the the practically new mishimoto radiator from the DB1 into the DC2 and convert it to -16AN hoses utilizing these gorgeous SickBird Housings. Just look at these things! Incredible quality for the price.










I need a set of those, I'll check that vendor out thanks. .
