    Xylaphobes '95 -Going Boosted-

    Xylaphobes 1995 SC2

    Year: 1995
    Model: SC2
    Goals: Mild N/A street DD

    The car used to be Mike and Lisas old car, its very clean only has 90,xxx on the shell. Black leather in pretty good condition. Tails and corners have been tinted the car has black emblems. The front bumper and head light covers just got repainted. It has MOOG ball joints and TRW tie rod ends the only thing wrong is that it has a cracked windshield, and drivers side window is off the track.

    The car the day it rolled into my driveway:
    I hope the tints are not too dark, I may have to redo them.


    Super deadly wheel gap shown here:

    Re: Xylaphobes '95

    I have a set of these wheels 16x7: (never mind that the pic is 5 lug)

    The silver is flaking and they are in need of a new coating, I'm pretty sure that I will be going with a gloss black but any suggestions are much appreciated.
    I grabbed up a set of hein's rear hub spacers in 1/2 inch, should bring the wheels out nice and flush with the fenders.

    I have not really come up with an engine bay scheme quite yet, the header is wrapped and coated with the silver coating for the wrap, and the block is black, so I could incorporate another color if I wanted to, but I am undecided as of yet. Again suggestions are appreciated.


    My plans include:
    • Install suspension and drive train when the weather is nice.
    • Replace the windshield and tint windows
    • possibly attempt a bi-xeon retrofit (I don't know much about them yet any education is appreciated.
    • get new tires on freshly coated rims
    • replace a few interior pieces
    • Maybe get a set of power cams
    • Profit???

    The Engine should be going in tomorrow, and then will be dropped on the new sneakers to see the almost final stance. Saturnday is coming.

    That's awesome man. Can't wait to see what this car is going to look like. I am actually pretty anxious to see the bronze multi-spokes and that bronze valve cover. Oh, and excellent tire choice. Those will probably be my next dd tire whenever my Toyos run out.
