Hey, hey i'm picking up my new bodykit this friday down in L.A.. It took a while to scout out a descent looking one but i finally made my decision. I've gone with the R34 BW from ebay. that facility is located down in sunvalley in L.A.. The guy sounds cool and sold it to me at a good price. Now i'm just wondering what color i should paint it. I might go w/ a yellow pearl but i have to look at all the paint swatches first. Then i can slap on a custom exhaust sys. and be rollin'. I'll get some pics. asap.

that's the one, chief. I just got through taking my factory kit off, it was a bitch. A lot of little spaces to go through just to get the back bumper off. The front one wasn't too bad.

I was working on it last night. I was installing the speed grills on the front bumper and i tacked it down with fiberglass resin which work hella good. I'm gonna cut some opening on the side skirts and finish the back. I still have to sand down some of the edges to make it look even. As soon as that's done all i have to do is sand it and get it painted. It may take longer because of the weather, it's getting colder and it takes longer to dry.

I was thinking of doing a dual exhaust system. Because it has the dual ports in the back. As far as by who, I'm getting a custom exhaust made, I just need to get ahold of some square type mufflers. I had found some already but they're like $90 bucks each times 2 and the system to be made.

Finally painted, a little dirty though. I did custom cut-outs on the side skirts along the side and on the back of the side skirts.
