I come from mainly Nissan background. Having messed around with several 240sx's and a 350Z (which I miss like crazy). I now have a baby boy so I needed something big with style.
So i picked up this LS from a wrecker auction for 1,100 and drove it right off the lot. The odo reads 180k so not that bad. Runs great and smooth. Only issue it has is the faulty cluster.
Had small plans for it but that really never work out in this hobby. Was just gonna keep stock body add wheels and a drop. That wasnt the case. I am always thinking of things to stand apart from the crowd. Small touches here and there. Went to a local aero parts place to pick up item for the LS. When I got there the manager told me he had a 8pc kit for a UCF10. I couldnt believe it. He had it for 5yrs and never advertised it. The price was a definite steal.
this is the kit
So I said F'it. Bought the kit and extra piece I was gonna mess with. Set me back on the Coils but not in a rush anyways. So my ideas were turned upside down. Decided to paint the whole car black +kit+extra piece and wheels in which I already had purchased but ended up not working. Since they were small and for stock body.
Took the car over to my friend/bodyman/painter. To save a couple bucks I would mount the kit and do all the ***** work plus buy all the materials. I had a hook up at a local paint store from previously working there.
Kit was from Extreme Dimensions. I would give it a 8.5/10 on fitment.
All four corners were rolled and pulled for future plans.
My extra piece was a Rocket Bunny wing. Since previously looking to buy one for my 240 I had been checking it out. Almost same trunk styles as the LS I figured it would fit pretty well. Then I decided to mold it on to the trunk. Came out better then I expected. One and only piece.
next was paint.
Ran into a little problem with the clear. I kinda cheaped out. Well dye back occurred and it had be recleared. So the car has about 5 coats of clear. So I bought a high solids 2:1 clear. Came out great.
Had to sand and wash the boat all down again for the reclear.
the car currently sits like this
my front bumper was damaged by some *******. Lower left part. Repaired it.
all ready have 4 new tires to mount for slight stretch and lower sidewalls. Just need coils,chrome trimmings and a couple other things.
Thanks for looking guys!
