Touge Attack

My brother and I headed out early one morning to take some on road shots of the roach. Looks good on the street but it needs rear spacers to fill the guards.

Apart from that it looks smooth and there is some speed in these images so the car is remarkably flat on the road.
Turn in isn't so good. the 225s complain though under duress as the rubber is very old now. It is hard anyway.

Photo Shoot

Without even a buff yet, I couldn't wait. I had to get some pics.

The car looks awesome and the attention it receives is truely amazing. People leaning out to take pics. And a lot of hellos.

I am happy with it. the look is fantastic and the car drives really well too at the moment.

I would still like a GT wing as the front is wide and the rear is narrow, but the "cockroach" as I now call it is definately cool!

First Pics of the finished Body

Here is the beast. I made a custom Flip type number holder for the front. It flips up but doesn't go back down at the moment.

This pic shows the colour best. Bronze Gray Metallic. It really contrasts well with the RAYS anthracite wheels.

Smooth rear is not intentional but looks OK i guess. IMO still needs a GT Wing.

Polish Time

He is the start of polishing and the final parts of installation.

I just hope I can get it down the driveway without scratching the front!!!!

My father was a champ with the paint gun. Very cheaply and quickly painted. It is a daily/drifter after all.



C-West style bumper finished with Mesh inserts.

Bonnet painted ready for installation.

Car body was painted in insane temperatures due to time constraints. Colour is a tiny shade off.
