My modified Altezza Gita (sportcross) - pics!

Finally got the Altezza on the road again after being off for months while bodykit, wheels and suspension were installed!

Here are a few pics. Its by no means finished, but at least the wheels, kit, and graphics are on! Enjoy!

Very nice! I like how you shaved the inner tail lights. (I'm assuming you did, I don't know how the Gita's are from the factory.)

Yep - shaved the inner rear lights :-)

Not entirely sure - about 45mm I think? I had to get custom coilovers made up, as the 4wd (which mine is) uses different front suspension to the standard RWD alrezza or gita.

Its the TOPGUN IS300 sedan kit. We had to graft the top 1/3 of the factory altezza gita bumper onto the lower 2/3 of the top gun rear bumper as the sedan and wagon are completely different fitments! Sides and front are of course direct bolt ons though. And yes, its the Elixir Aero wing - imported from Japan.
