    Default Risky Business

    Aloha

    I figured i'd start a build thread here since I frequent WFC, and haven't really introduced myself. My name is Jessie, and I'm from Honolulu, HI. I own a 2015 Subaru BRZ limited, been under my ownership since June of 2015. Prior to owning the BRZ, I owned a 1996 Z32 2+2. I didn't really touch that car much, but I did learn a lot on maintenance, and getting it running perfect. Ended up selling the car as a parts car due to an electrical problem I just couldn't find that stopped it from turning over or even cranking.

    The brz is the first car I started to tinker with in terms of modifications. A lot of my influence comes from cars I read on super street, import tuner, stancenation, dohcresearch and stickydiljoe. My goal was to just incorporate JDM parts and OEM+ styling.. and simply just enjoy it!

    Wheels:

    Current Look:







    The name "Risky Business" or rskybz was a little joke between me and my mom, and it caught on with a few friends. It was a project name for this car that just stuck.

    Current plans for this car is to start cleaning up the bay, removing the windshield wiper tank, replacing the coolant overflow tank with the chasebay overflow tank, do bride seats, brembo brakes, and a few other things... Just simplifying the look of the car and cleaning it up.

    I also never get tired of seeing this.
    I wish it was practical for me to get a BRZ/FRS.
    keep up the good work!

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the kind words! I learned alot, and was helped/influenced by many guys locally. Without them I don't think the car would be where its at today. Prepping the car for HIN this week down in hawaii, pretty stoked!

    Hope everyone had a safe new years!

    Figured i'd update since I did a thing to my car this past weekend.



    Added my Downstar fender bolt hardware to replace the old scratched up oem bolts. I got them in aluminum/silver to go with the aluminum/ polished parts in the engine bay. Getting ready for Wekfest HI 2018

    Love the little things that make the biggest impact. I wish I could see this thing in person.

    Are the ARC bits as wildly expensive for the FRS/BRZ as they are for the 350z?

    Thank you! I feel like these little touches are what set apart each build from the next, gives a sense of individuality.

    Yeah.. I miss my todoroki fenders more and more each day lol! I feel like it completed the overall look. With stock fenders it looks a tad bland, I don't really feel like messing with the stock fenders in terms of fitment so the spacers ended up coming off.. hope I'll get them back by the end of this month. Having some separation anxiety from my fenders haha.

    Hope everyones been well. It's been awhile since I've been on here. It's been a hectic few months with school/finals, work, and life going on. No real updates to the car; It's been my reliable daily; driving it to work, school, and wherever I need to go. I'm still waiting for my fenders to come back from paint as well. Also looking at doing a few new mods this summer. Right now, I've put the OEM mirrors back on (got sick of the APR mirrors, and wanted some change), dialed in the fitment with stock fenders, and now saving cash for upcoming plans...

    I've also been looking at owning another car (An ae86, or a cressida). Almost owned an SR5 AE86... until I saw the how bad the rust was (dammit Hawaii). Very clean in terms of interior, and well maintained on the mechanical side of things, but there was a big rust spot near the trunk and rear windshield area that left a gaping hole in the quarter panel. The dumbass in me wanted to buy it, but I told myself I just need to be a little patient. Wanted to purchase it as a daily (it was an automatic with low miles, second owner. First owner was an old lady... wouldve been perfect!), and possibly hoard parts/ strip it down and rebuild when I graduate college in a few years... but, back to just browsing waiting for the right car to come.

    Anywho... sorry about the tangent there, looking to do some mods this summer and get the build thread going again. it's been stagnant since i've been saving money. My plans are to keep the car very oem+, and add a few goodies from Japan to accent the other parts I got going on. Get brakes, and enjoy driving the car. This summer, the build will go on!

    How she sits as of right now.





    Unsure how I feel about keeping the rear diffuser... but it'll stay for the time being.

    looks really nice, i always had a plan in mind to get the apr mirrors. what did you think of them?
    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

    APR was good, I drove with it for almost 3 years! I just got tired of the look. Many guys say they cant see shit out of them, but for me I felt no difference from my oem mirrors and the apr mirrors.
