What kind of rims are in the front? They look similar to kosei senekas

Amazing work btw!

My goodness what an epic build, just now I have gone through the entire thread.... As soon as the primer went on the car what a transformation it made! you really do have a one of a kind mk3...
That carbon mirror is so nice! great attention to detail on the body work I cant believe how cool the shaved rear windows turned out looks great. cant wait to see this complete. Keep it up

Re: My black MKIII with 2JZ-GTE and V-160

Just reread the whole thread and got alittle bit depressed because I realized it is one year since I started talking about having the car painted. Things take so much more time than expected and shit that are suppose to be easy take several days to finish and of course much time spent on regular job... :(

There is a carshow in my town on july 14th and I have set my mind on having the car on that show :)

Sidenote: I must have fucked up when I measured the rear width of the car. I got 189cm but the registrationofficer measured 195cm!!!

The car is now at the painter, so hopefully I will have a "finished" car within 10 days.

Great build, I am loving the dedication you put in.

Why did you decide to go with the Ti bolts/nuts? Anodized aluminum does the job and looks nice at a much cheaper price.

Interested to see it fully reassembled. I've got mixed feelings on the blocked out rear quarter window, but I think with the trim installed it'll pull it together nicely.

Thanks everybody!
All turnsignals and lights are now on the car and it looks so good :)
I have also given carbonfibre molding a shot and hopes it turns out ok.

This piece goes between the taillights and turned out better than I would expect, just need to polish it.

You're extending the definition of custom.

Looks kinda weird with side skirt being so high up in the middle tho..
