Mine has a black hand print from when I had to push it into a parking space, when the fuel pump went out.

Here are pics of my recent purchase. Have some hunt down some rattles in the rear and some brake work, then should be good to go for a while.





And of course I decided to swing by Up Garage during the weekend to see what they had, and this little thing happened to be sitting there.


And this is my baby while I was in Germany. She is patiently waiting for my return.

i finally got in contact with fedex.

they are quoting me 285 to ship from east coast to Okinawa
for a 110 lbs box with a EJ257 shortblock.

USPS was going to cost me 88 for just case halves, another 60 for the crank, and
32 for the rods. But have had to split the case and take everyting apart to mail it.


nice bugeye...

So I ordered brake pads and rotors a month ago, received the rear pads and front rotors 2 weeks ago. Went to the post office yesterday to pick up some packages...
Was in luck because the lady walked over with some Amazon boxes. She looks at me and says this box arrived empty. I look at the label and its my pads.
Emailed Amazon and they apologize, they also sent out a new shipment. So now I get to wait another month for my pads.

Does your friend still need those rims? Does he need me to look at the car?

Brake pads came in! Gotta go do a brake job this week and put on the stock suspension and replace a cv boot.

Sucks about the brake situation. I know how you feel cuz I order a ton of crap from the states as well. That's all easy repairs though now you got it all.

Lol soooooo pretty sure my engine went boom... Talked to a highly reputable builder in the states and he said that the noise my car is making is going to be a spun bearing... Only way to really tell is to pull the motor apart... That starts either this week or next week. Hopefully within the next two days I get my jet lag under control.

Chances are I might be going with a brand new short block.... Would anyone happen to know what a new EJ207 shorty is running these days?
