I appriciate the feedback, and have some of my own to clear a few things up.
First off, I wish I had an rb26...but its an rb20.(although the rb20 outside of the car now has a twin turbo manifold on it )
Although the car may appear to have a green hue in the pictures, I assure you it is metallic grey in person. As far as the blue suede not matching, I am personally a fan of blue/black interior. that and the fact that it matches(to the best we could) the seats...but in the end it is all personal prefrence.
The body kit IS far from modest and quite aggressive, but once again that is the look I was going for. The only other kit I can think of that I would use on this car is Supermade or maybe OEM aero. We will see what replaces this kit once it gets destroyed at the track
The wing was one of those flip-a-coin situations. I was going to stay wingless, but decided to see what it would look like with the kouki spoiler. Its one of thoes things where I like how it looks with it as much as without.
As for the blue panel under the tail lights, well....I just need to paint it to match. I have been focusing my time on the mechanical issues right now because I am entered in a drift event on the 23rd. When I have more time after that I will get around to it.
Yea, I really should have finished the bodywork first, but I think I am just going to have a shop re-mold the widebody as well as weld the back half of stock s-13 fenders to the front half of my s15 ones. Then I will do the paint myself again, just not sure on a color yet. The only reason I didn't do the bodywork first is because I was tired of driving a primered car and wanted to work on the motor before I do the exterior again.
I think I have decided to make custom mounts for the rollbar that will be welded to the chassis, but bolted to the rollbar. This would allow me to take it off for asthetics, but still have the option to bolt it in when required.
I checked into it and some of our local drift events require a rollbar for converibles while others don't. some only require it if you want to run with the top down, which I do. Normally I would just weld it in, but most regulations state that the hoop must be 2 inches higher than the top of the drivers helmet and i'm not too fond of how it looks that high up.
Should I leave the rollbar polished, or have it powdercoated black?? Keep in mind I will be getting the tinted red/clear taillights...
