I like OEM 180sx sideskirts but i've been looking for a set of OEM Silvia sideskirts. I can't find those anywhere!94_240sx wrote:
Try this combination. Any OEM side skirts and painted rear mud guards. One of the members had his red s13 coupe that way and it looked great. He also had a Xenon lip. Trust me. It'll look like something's missing if you have nothing on the rear bumper.
Since we were discussing OEM this and OEM that, I found this. I don't know if it's old news or what but I figured i'd show you guys.94_240sx wrote:Here's a nice thread about s13 OEM factory aero parts.

I want these ones on the Silvia:Heres another:zerofile/44362/22.jpg94_240sx wrote:

A pair of droopy skirts is on eBay right now, but not sure if they are OEM Nissan parts or not. But still they are better than fiberglass. IMHO, they are not OEM. OEM skirts have these grooves for water drain.
Those are not Silvia Aero side skirts that I have. I thought they were first, but I found that they are not upon close inspection. They might be early version of zenki 180sx side skirts. Certainly, they are not "droopy" side skirts.topless94 wrote:

I posted that link in page 1 on this thread. It was a reply to mottabam.topless94 wrote:And whaddya think about my cheap lip find? Old news or new?
I see. The link I posted was of a picture you posted a while back...man that Silvia is clean. I noticed it has the rear valence as well. As for the side skirts, I don't want the ones on ebay...too many bidders. I guess i'll have to keep searching...94_240sx wrote:Those are not Silvia Aero side skirts that I have.

Woops...missed that one.94_240sx wrote:I posted that link in page 1 on this thread. It was a reply to mottabam.
That car is my inspiration. You can check out his build up here. I've visited there and looked at pictures all the time since he put that website up. http://www.stillensucks.com/240sr_stuff.htmtopless94 wrote:I see.

That Courtesy spoiler does not look like the Xenon spoiler...topless94 wrote:Courtesy Parts has the OEM S13 front lip spoiler for $197.48http://www.courtesyparts.com/M...FRLIP
Ish provided a link a while back for a place that sold the Xenon lip for about $231. I thought that was the cheapest until I found this.
Yeah it isn't. It could be a lip alternative if one was looking to save a few bucks. 94 has the same one on his vert...looks pretty good IMO. It would probably be my second choice if I couldn't get a Xenon lip.ishkabibble wrote:

The Xenon lip is $242 shipped form performancecenter.com
I have GR+ Pro. Yeah, I searched like crazy before I upgraded my suspension. I was going to go for a set of springs(GF-210) and AGX struts, but decided to get coilovers. Megan was out of question because I knew someone who had Megan Street on his s14 and he wasn't happy with them at all. KTS and Stance, both are good quality coilovers w/good price, and I didn't know what to get. I ran into 2 different posts(don't remember where) complaining about KTS coilovers, so I went for Stance. One of the guys actually drove both, and he liked Stance better.fallingspeaker wrote:I wanna ask about your suspension. Do you have stance basic or gr+ pros? Also what made you decide to go for stance instead of KTS? ( I was reading your older posts when you were set on springs ). How is the ride?
Good luck with your trip to mainland and coilovers. Either KTS and Stance should be fine. I guess under carriage is rusty cuz Hawaii is humid? If I were you, I would grind those rust out and spray under coating protector or something like that. We have a couple of thread about taking care of rust in the back seat area, so I'd look into them. I hope it's not that bad.fallingspeaker wrote:If my undercarriage is a little rusty, can I get it off somehow and then rust proof it?
I like. Did you order those off of More Japan?94_240sx wrote:Guys, I have some updates on my car. Just received Kazama 180sx side markers that match with my D-Speed front signals and clear tail lights. Waited like a month to get them.
Who are you ordering them from? I've been considering Progress as I want to get adjustable sways. Be sure to give us a review on them once everything is installed.94_240sx wrote:Installed NISMO Power Brace and Progress Sway Bar. I haven't finished the sway bar yet. I need to install endlinks. I'll do the write up on it. Rear sway bar is on back order, so I have to wait about 2 more weeks.
Yup! Came in with March container.topless94 wrote:I like. Did you order those off of More Japan?
One of the members posted Never Enough Auto price($315 shipped F&R) in suspension forum, but unforturnately price has gone up, so I paid $350 shipped. That was the lowest I could find. Rear sway bar is just patheic on the vert, so I can't wait to get the rear one. I did search a lot and Progress seemed best bang for the buck. I'll post what I found about all those different sway bars later in the write up too.topless94 wrote:Who are you ordering them from? I've been considering Progress as I want to get adjustable sways.

It's authentic Nismo part that I picked up from the dealership. Yeah, when I opened the box it was wrapped really good, but weld and finish were like that. Part number was something like XXXXX-XXXXXUS. Maybe this one is not made in Japan or something? I have some other Nismo parts, and they are top notch quality. Bar in the middle and square box thingy supposed to make front end more stiff.DeXteR wrote:wow, i hope you didn't pay too much for that. was it a knock-off? that just doesn't look like professional welding to me. anyone with half a brain and a welder could modify the stock ones to be EXACTLY like the nismo version for under $100 - that's an estimate. also, i'm sure it would come out much cleaner than that nismo one.
No, they are not going to work. Do you like them more? If so, I'd try aftermarket valences made for the s13 coupe. Some of them look similar to 180sx rear valences and have more aggressive looking.silviatp23 wrote:94 Do you know if the 180sx rear valences would work on the coupes?
No, rear valences and side are not covering the black strip as you can see in this pic. If they do, the strips on rear bumper and front bumper won't match up with ones on the body.silviatp23 wrote:Also another question did your side skirts not cover up the black strip that runs all the way around the car?
Right. All of them have them. Unfortunately mine doesn't because they came off.Loki wrote:One random question: all verts have the Limited Edition thing on the side right? Not just 94's?
