Honestly, man...it really is. I had a huge weight on my shoulder with the mess my ex left me with with the previous place nearly 10 years ago. I'm finally free and seems like the stars have aligned for some really cool things to happen in my life. You attract what you put out, right?

Anyway, finally decided I needed some NON house related modding so I finally installed the side strakes (in front of rear wheel, matches lines of front bumper and are OEM option) and also swapped out the 15MM spacers that were on the car for some 20's. Test fitted the Advans...but MAN, that is MEXI flush and rubs like a motherfucker. No way...I also wanted to put some spacers on the front oem wheels but of course, it's 73.1 hub, not 64.15 like the rear.

Love how they look though!

J.

As in look, yeah I just couldn't decide if Advans look nice on s2k or not because stockies look tooooo good on it.

Replaced rear 15mm with 20mm on s2k or TL?
S2k right? Looks perfect

Wait whaaaaaaat
Why!!!???
Keep the A-Specs on the TL

House/Garage is Awseome J!

Cars look Beautiful sittin clean in the Garage! All kinds of room for modding! Was that a light or heater/fan plugged in (in the first pic of S2K with Advans)?



Edit: Also, checking your weight while modding?

Thank you boys!

Yes, Maj...will do and thanks, man. We're still getting the inside in order, hanging things and whatnot. The craziest part is that there's so much crap at my old house still and we can survive with what we have here already.

That's a directional fan! Ha ha...

advans 41.5 lbs

you'd be surprised, man. I swear I feel like I'm growing up and not really wanting to complicate my life. New front tires and wiper blades, reinstall the soft top and I'm good for a bit. No joke, I even put the new radio (cd player doesn't work well in this one) and new rotors on hold for a while. Now that I'm back to the reality of regular life and crazy bills etc the spending has stopped.

Maj, for you:
Mom/Aunt visited yesterday, got the mailbox and outside pressure cleaned

Painted some accent walls and put up our own nicknacks


Kalinda chilling in the yard

Master bedroom...fkn thing is like 22 feet long

Those Advans look great on the S2K. Obviously too big, but with the correct fitment, it would be fantastic.
