    Edit By Driftworks: This is a cool thread, so in an attempt to make sure it doesn't get filled full of Before: Standard Car. After: Standard car but doing a skid. Or 20 photo's of the same thing. I've deleted a load of pictures from existing posts, and deleted some completely.

    The rules are: Stick to no more than 4 pictures per car (including before and after). Don't post similar pictures, and don't post at all if your car hasn't changed. That's it.



    ............................................................................................................................................



    Just thought this may be a cool thread for people to post before and after pics of their cars from moderate to extreme builds

    :thumbs:

    Here is my contribution to get the ball rolling and show what I mean

    car in its hay day and first form

    I then bought it like this less the wheels looking fairly sad

    [​IMG]

    Finished before a few drift days and then was sold to LT

    My first S13 has probably seen the most transformation.

    This my S14 the way she came in from Japan, not much has changed as i like the oem/street look. Aperence wise, plan for next year is wider metal front wings, rear over fenders or bolt-on arches and some sort of metal drag wing/ducktail jobbie.
