Hey, just thought i would post up the closing stages of my build. I have been working on it for around a year and a half and am getting close to the end now. This is what the car was like before i took it off the road.
Ej8 - JDM B18Cr, cusco 1.5 lsd, ORC, EK9 interior, BYS etc


I got over the B18 one day and got onto a cheap JDM ITR front swap with HID so i thought why not. It pretty much just ran away from me from that moment on. I didnt have a budget so i just worked my ass off and brought what i wanted. So far i have done everything myself at home MINUS the fitment of the ek/itr guards and building my gearbox. I had a falling out with a shop that was spose to help me out, so that made things alot harder. I ended up sourcing most of it myself. I got in contact with dale from K20 tuned and he was more then willing to help me out and with the strong AUD at the time i brought 80% of the conversion stuff right there and then, dale has been a huge help. Im building the car so i can race it on the weekends in the QLD sprint series. Anyway enough rant.

I've hit a problem. I have a vibration running through the whole car. The problem is the drive shafts being too long, when the car is at ride height they are hitting. they need to be 5 - 10mm shorter on both sides. Running a OEM combo, just wondering is there a easy way to shave 5 - 10mm off or am i best just to take them to a vabrication shop.

I have only heard bad things about them. Also with our poor AUD it wouldnt be worth it by the time i convert and add shipping.
