My Mu Nuts

Although Tokyo Auto Salon has come and gone, and I still have yet to go and see it for myself, a few pieces from it have come my way! All thanks to Galen – he makes an annual trip out there every year lately and is kind enough to bring anything that we need back for us as long as he can fit it in his luggage. I was able to score a few good pieces at really great prices so why not! Huge thanks again to you, Galen! You’re the man!

The first and most anticipated item I received were these ProjectMu lug nuts – essentially Project Kics but re-branded with the ProjectMu teal and logo. I’ve been looking around for lug nuts for a long time, so when you’re trying to look for something a little different than the usual Muteki or neo chro hype nuts, it’s tough to get fancy. You don’t see these lug nuts around too much so voila! The color is super nice but probably won’t be visible when they go on with the wheel… So this is probably the last time you or I will see that teal LOL.

Just a few more pieces to the puzzle before she’s about ready for summer!!

Gorilla Lug Nuts

This is officially the most boring post I’ve ever had. Only because the product itself is not too exciting either and if the product isn’t exciting, the pictures are less exciting.

Unfortunately, the LS has a pretty lame thread pitch of 14×1.5 unlike the usual patterns that you may be used to – 12×1.5 for example. That means I can’t really run any cool looking lugs like Project Kics or something fancy like that. I believe there is a set of VIP Garson lugs with crystal ends that are like $300 but there is a long wait time that I don’t have time for. Most of the LS guys are running either these Gorilla lugs or McGard lugs. Pretty plain but at the end of the day, the lug nuts are probably the last thing that is looked at when they’re kind of hidden by the 21″ wheels and stuff lol – at least I’m hoping anyway. I’m also not sure how I feel about crystal ended lug nuts haha.

Anyways the only cool thing about this whole situation is that I ordered these off of Amazon on Monday at around 2PM and paid an extra $35 for two day shipping from Phoenix. I ended up getting it on Tuesday before lunch. Less than 24 hours for only $15 more? Win. If I had chose the cheapest option, it would’ve taken 8-10 days. This blows my mind hahaha. I’m crossing my fingers the wheels come in either by the end of this week or at the very latest, it’ll be the week after. But like I said before, the weather isn’t the greatest right now anyway so they won’t go on the car right away. It would just be nice to have them in my possession to look at everyday lol.
