    firstly props to hammond for building this, and also to craig for not entirely ruining it (although it was close :p) :wave:



    So, the story goes.........

    i originally bought this car to make some money on by selling some of the bits and putting it back to near stock. the money was destined to go towards the rebuild on my s13.

    anyway, sitting in the motorway i kinda fell for this car, everything just sat right and felt good, plus it was the car that actually got me into skidding in the first place (thanks Hammond!)
    so i had a tough decision to make, the only way to decide was to have a little play on the way back :D it felt underpowered compared to my sr, but was what i originally wanted my s13 to be, i couldnt break it....... but i could wind hammond up telling him i was :wack:

    so my s13 got stripped in favour of the sil80.

    picked it up looking like this...

    felt it needed a few tweaks, but theres not much more i can add to it. so i fitted up my ssr meshes on the front, sideskirts went on, the rear bumper got replaced, koukis have been removed, and rear spats on.

    i also wanted to remove the D2 coilovers that were on there in favour of my new MeisterR`s. i knew my old s13 was low and could see the ps friotn wouldnt have been able to go that low so i fitted a 7mm locking ring back in up front..... the bumper was dragging on the ground :mad: so i raised it a further 10mm. its still alot lower than it used to be but i think is just about right.

    [​IMG]

    finally i sold the rollcage as i preferred my own so that went in today

    [​IMG]


    future plans are..... externally to leave it alone really, going to source a roof spoiler when i have some cash tho. im going to just have fun using it, the car does need a few tweaks but ill leave most of it for the winter when i plan giving it a interal/structural rebuild.

    Nice!

    I'd tint the rear lights or something though, I think if you can de-tango the rear and tint it'll improve the whole rear end.

    I was going to ask why the removal of the Kouki lights but actually the standard UK lights suit the look of the car more. Good call.

    Glad to see this car back down here actually, it's a bit of Kent's skidding history. Just get to enjoy skidding it too now dude.
