Default AnonymousG Pic/Progress Thread

So instead of me making threads everytime i take new pics of my car, I might as well leave it in all one.

Previous car, 97 Q45 slammed on S14 springs. Was planning to go the VIP style route, but ended early


I bought my SC around Jan 11, 12. LOL No stock pics besides this.


Week later I bought all these


Car ended up looking decent





Put on a SC4 lip and HIC Roof Spoiler




Then upgraded to 95-96 Front bumper, found a set of used fogs on here.



Bought a W58 Conversion from a supra


Radiator cracked during doing deliveries to work. Upgraded to a eBay MKIV 2core and external transmission cooler.


Seen a Seibon CF hood on Craigslist for a crackehad price, I wanted it. So that same night took off my hood at 11PM and drove 2hrs without a hood to pick it up.


Went on a little shoot after i got it.



Finally got rid of my dual N1 Style mufflers for a Blitz Nur Spec.

Sound Clip

So heres were it went downhill. Tuesday was my day off, seen a guy parting out a SC400 on craigslsit. Bought all these parts from him at his shop (he did the first 5.0 swap in a S13), fit it all in my backseat of the SC. Got home mega late, too lazy and tired to take it out. Wednesday my other day off, I was woke up to this. Stolen/broken list Kenwood DNX5140, HIC roof Spoiler, $20 in change, non-bleeding climate control, 64gb ipod, ignition switch, center console, cupholder.



So that day, I sold my Canon 5D MarkII, to fix it. Bought a new window, ignition stuff, console parts, + etc to fix what was broken,stolen.

Fast foward to today.
Plastidiped my SC matte black.First day it was dipped.


and the most recent picture (missing highbeams, next picture will explain.)



Test fit of my Evolution Exclusive Front lip and my spare bumper. Waiting to find some side skirts So i can put on the front lip and my 97+ rear.



Thanks for looking, and I know my car is not everyone tastes, but its built for my teaste. But constructive criticism is welcome.

very nice sir. I'm diggin' the wheel choice you went with. Are you going with the 97+ front bumper or are you sticking with what you have because I'm debating wether or not to go with the 97+ front but everyone has them

I like the other bumper better. Call me old school I guess. Nice progress in the short time you have had her. After this conversion, what's next on the agenda? Not too fond of the stretched look of the tires, but the rims look great on there. Who did your black finish?

I plan to stay with the older style bumpers.

I really like the older bumper styles too, a reason why I have both a 92 bumper and a 96 bumper, and to top it off both with different lips. but I plan to go NAT or 1jz at some point, but I want to redo my interior first. Seats are pretty done, along with my window trims. I did the matte finish my self, not the best but it does it job. I plain to peel it all off a try another color. and my tires are not that stretched in the rear anymore, I upgraded the rear to a 235/40/18 Pirelli

I bought the kit of dipyourcar.com, so I applied it using a Wagner spray gun. I like it, but been thinking about taking all of it off. and trying another color.
