I've always though R32 spoiler would be too high for vert, but it looks really good on your car.

Wow, this is truly brilliant. When I first saw the thread title for the first time I said "uuggghhhhh" to myself, but I was compelled to look. I am glad that I did. And just checking up on it now that it's done... I am truly impressed with the workmanship that went into it.

Amazing. Inspiring.

well thank you sir, and i know what you mean, I've seen some terrible work out there. when I first started out with the build I got nothing but crap for a while but now that its done I think all those haters are eating their words I always say, do it right or don't do it at all

that hood hinge made me think, why not take a razor blade to the side wall of all 4 tries or a butcher knife to any other part?

Car looks great dude. You really pulled it off damn well. now all you need to do is covert the engine bay to a skyline, catch my drift?

the rear valances are custom, we took an old 13 body kit that had the same lines as the side skirts and cut it up, fiberglassed, and body worked

thanks for all the compliments guys, she's my pride and joy. I'm going to drop a new motor in in a couple weeks so there will be more pics soon

I want one. In RHD. I'm seriously considering getting a vert, but I need one in right hand drive...Your car makes me want one even more now. That thing is definitely on the unique list.

I'm not sure of the legality of converting a car to rhd, a motor swap is sketchy enough for me. i could probably get away with it if I didn't live in so cal. a buddy of mine did a rhd conversion and got his vert impounded and crushed. with all the work and money and time I've put into her I'd rather not take the chance of losing her to the crusher
