    Little bit more work and it's not too far off from being finished for the time being..

    Cleaned up my Work Equip 01's. Really enjoy the black with chrome lip look.




    Front guards, front bumper and lip got the red treatment also. Used BME e30 front indicators for the bumper and gave them a candy orange tinted clear coat.

    Indicators seem to fit the bar pretty well... did you have to modify either much to fit?

    Also, quit teasing, I see those rear guards lurking in that photo. I want to see them all completed and full of equips

    Cheers for the kind words dudes! The indicators fit in without a hell of a lot of modifying, just had to shave off some bits from the back case surround. The indicators were originally all clear and got painted with an orange tinted clear to match the kouki parkers. They look pretty close to OEM now, just much newer.

    Rear guard aren't too far off now! Here's a photo of them to show the metal work along with the front guards before paint prep.


    Finally got it out to see some daylight. Wish there was some more sun out to really get some nice photos of the paint so far but this will do..

    Thats awesome, I'm not normally a huge fan of red, but I guess most 86's are just faded. Yours looks great! Fitment in the rear is pretty crazy, are you going to fit some factory skirts?

    Fitment is a bit wild on the rear. Running 14x8.5 -22 wheels on a tarago diff pumps them out pretty wide. I'm glad we got the factory line on the rear guards and everything tucks well. Still yet to weld in little caps to meet into the body and rear bumper so it all lines up like factory.

    No skirts, just the front lip and that's it. Might eventually go with a goodline for the front bumper but I like the OEM look.

    Haven't updated this in a while. Car is complete (are they ever complete?) and has been on the road for a week now. Here are some pics.

    looks great. really good job.

    it may just be me but does the grill look out of place a little? with everything so new and shiny the foggy yellow look of the grill just doesn't seem to go too well with it.

    If you cut a zenki grill to fit the fog lights I think it would finish it nicely. just like this http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/fo...ut-out-to-suit

    my 2c so feel free to tell me I'm wrong
