Hey guys/gals, I thought I'd make a build thread. Not going to have much for now as its the winter and the car is back to pretty much stock but whatever.

Ugly hood bra that I took off and sold :)








Proper+ S14 Shifter :) Don't have it on anymore, wanted a change so I'll just go back and forth

Plasti-dipped the OEM wheels white



Did a little shoot with my friends, kinda shitty but whatevs haha









Seibon TA Carbon Fiber Side skirts (used)




Then I refurbished them. (DIY in my thread for CF refresh)

Spring can't come any earlier. Fortunately, we're supposed to have one of the warmest winters ever :)



I added some pictures from today.

Good to see you finally make a build thread.
The carbon fiber will look good on the BO.

Looking good so far, but you really need some fogs. Those plastic caps just don't look right. Does your elbow hit the passenger seat when you shift into reverse :lol:

Thanks man! Not too much of a build thread but you can be sure that it'll be flooding with pictures in the spring from shoots/meets :) Really can't wait.

Thanks Rey! Still not sure if I wanna do fogs to be honest. If i did I want the dark chrome housing ones to match my headlights.

My shifter isn't on anymore :p But when it was it didn't hit anything hehe With a shorter shifter I think it would be badass. Right now its just like a long-throw bus shifter haha

Ah! The build thread I've been waiting for! Thanks Jeremy for putting it up. I can't wait for some updates.

You've got ice today? Wow, we're having unseasonably warm temps here in MD (hence why I'm able to get work done). It's a shame you can't garage it at times like these.

That carbon fiber should look right at home there. You've got the exact parts I want lol. (I want to change my front lip for the CF one already). It would be interesting to see the Chargespeed rear with that kit.

Haha thanks man! Ya I can't wait. Actually it was Groundhog day today and we only have about 6 weeks of winter left :)

Oh, and I forgot, I can't wait to see those tail lights on there with a body kit... I'm super close to picking up some of those for a custom project.
I can't wait to install them. Hopefully they don't burn out like some of the other ebay ones.

Holy crap! I get annoyed when I see dew on my car. Honestly, I think I'd take CARB over salty winters...or I'd just buy a winter beater :lol:
