Body moving...

S13 wide body panels fitted

I'm currently stoked. Tom sent through some images of his work so far. It's looking pretty toight now with the M Sports 50mm Front and 50mm Rear Fibreglass Wide Body panels (from C-Red). As per previous entry, I'm moving to a Nissan Aero (Nismo) body kit instead of the M Sports one. Philosophy behind this is that I'm creating what I would envisage as being a 'factory special'. Something that Nismo or Autech may have been if given enough rope similar to the Nismo S14 Silvia 270R and Nismo R33 400R.

Some things to note are that these panels will be fully integrated into the body work, not just tacked on. The fuel filler cap has been integrated as well, as what you get in the kit is some strange curved jobby that mounts to the standard hinge and looks horrible. I've 95% secured a set of side skirts and possibly a different Nissan Aero front bar that has been modified with a larger intercooler intake - negotiations still underway on that one.

Pics of the body so far:

- Rear View
- Rear Quarter (note fuel flap)

Looking good mate. What's your tentative ETA for completion?

I think it would be safe to say 3mths at this point. That would make it about late September for a completion.

If you're selling the old Nismo bar I could be interested. Is it genuine, ie. expensive?

That black Nismo bar has already been reserved for someone I'm afraid. I think I bought it for $300 or thereabouts. They don't come up very often, which is the main problem.
