View Full Version : Ben's GTS Hero

9th September 2013, 11:33 PM
Despite it being the hero colour, I've not sold, nor seen too many Velocity Orange 86s getting around. It took a while to grow on me, I must admit, but when the opportunity to change my pearl white order for a Velocity Orange cancelled order came along, I jumped on it.

I've had the car for almost a month now, and in that time I've done almost 2200km, and started modifying her already.

So far I've done;

TRD Gear Knob

Rear Name Plate Delete

Black Emblems

Fujitsubo Authorize R Cat-back

And I also fitted a BlackVue DR500GW-HD, as well as a slimline number plate bracket, which don't require pics.


Future plans?

Headers + over-pipe
TOM's tail lights
Some sort of wheels. A customer of mine is giving me a set of Enkei RP03s when she trades in her 86 next week - these may end up on the car for a little while, while I decide wether I like them or not. I kinda had my heart set on RPF1s in SBC finish though.
Coilovers. ShockWorks most likely.
Bullet Supercharger Kit

And of course, any impulse buy that comes along will end up on that list.

RPF1s would look good in 17s!

RPF1s would look good in 17s!
That's the end goal I think. Was thinking more along the lines of 18s though.

Anyway, this happened yesterday..

Actually yeah after looking at some pics 18s might be nicer, unless its 17s with chunky tyres for that race look haha
TOMs lights are so good!

Much better tail lights than factory, good choice.

Time for a bit of an update..

Personalised and finished the overall look of the car with some custom plates:

Also fitted a TOM's Start Button just to be different on the inside:

Finally got around to tinting the windows. 20% 3M film all around:

And wired in a little gadget to close the mirrors in when I lock the car, and fold them out when I unlock the car.

Next mod I'm aiming to do is finish the exhaust off hopefully in December, and then fit the Innovate supercharger kit early in the new year.
