My new Mark2 rims XXR 526 2P

The previous wheels were on this car from the very beginning, so it was time to update them. Besides, I was tired of fixing them. Low-profile tires do not contribute to the preservation of the discs.

I really wanted SSR Minerva AGLE, but now it is a very rare find. So I bought something similar – XXR 526 2P, 8.5 inches in width and 35 offset, with R18 size. Plus additional spacers of 1.2 cm.

I bought the Mark 2

Hello, my dear reader! Half of the journey related to buying and delivering the car to Sochi has already been completed. Therefore, you can relax a bit, sit by the fireplace, and write a short story about “how I spent my winter.” But then again, I became too lazy to write, so I’ll just make a small chronicle of recent events in pictures.

My new dark gray car and my friend’s white car, we arrived to buy
We are refueling after driving. All the gasoline spilled on the Vladivostok-Ussuriysk highway.
I went to the village where I grew up the next day.
I immediately broke the welded differential after drifting. LMFAO
The old welded differential turned out to be non-separable. The flange refused to come out, probably welded. The seals cannot be replaced. As usual, I came to refill the oil in the differential and now I am looking for a new IR-V differential.

The differential was pressing oil through the seals and throwing it on the exhaust. The constant smell of burnt oil reminded me that I would soon visit the guys at MasterMotors.

I found a used differential. It cost 5k (differential) + 3k (labor with oil). I also got some cool stuff. I replaced the Soviet-style steering wheel with a sport one because the turn signals didn’t work after turning the wheel backwards. I also fixed the car horn and received a climate control panel with working buttons from Vladivostok.
At the same time, the ordered cover arrived. I am preparing to send it.
I am preparing the body kit for repair and painting. They will be transported inside the salon. After repairing cracks and repainting, the Vertex front bumper will be shipped to Sochi by a transport company.
The Moscow – Sochi road is 1600 km long. I can’t travel without a bumper. Besides, I need to move around in Ussuriysk for now. The guys sold me the standard black Mark bumper for a cheap price. I estimated it and gave it for painting.

I can’t adjust the full-tap shock absorbers anywhere in Ussuriysk yet. I don’t know what the road will be like from Moscow. According to rumors, the M4 Don is the top highway in the country, but it is unknown what it will be like beyond Krasnodar. Therefore, I need to be cautious and raise the car a little bit.

Replacing coilovers with Tein Flex shock absorbers with EDFC stiffness adjustment module from the salon. Repair of the exhaust system.

While the exhaust is being repaired and the old shock absorbers are being replaced with Tein Flex, I decided to slightly change the appearance of the car. I bought a new trunk lid (without holes for a spoiler) and painted it. I also bought customized taillights and collected rare overlays for the taillights of the second model from different cities (it was not so easy to find them). Additionally, I replaced the rear window and installed a wiper.

I was very lucky to buy the front optics cheaply. I assembled the lighting with HiVision LED lights with a temperature of 6000K.

We redesigned the entire front lighting system. We installed turn signals in the bumper and ordered two 8 Ohm 50W ballast resistors to eliminate the fast blinking of LED turn signals. Now the LED turn signals flash at the normal rate.
