Did a little floor mod since my head hits my roof with a helmet on.. It dropped the seat about 2-3 inches.

The ebay altezzas were for fun a long time ago its got 180 tails now.

JESTA_DRFT 04-16-2010 04:19 AM

Not really a detailed build thread but its done now. Everything was done in the garage including paint. I painted it a couple days after everything got fitted and this is the final result.

What bodykit is that?

JESTA_DRFT 04-16-2010 04:30 AM

Oh yeah I cut and turned the fuel neck to the inside since the fenders didnt come with a fuel door, and put the battery behind the passenger seat.

penis

XMcEvilson 01-30-2014 08:32 AM

wtf

Munki 01-30-2014 08:51 AM

The side skirts look kinda weird and the rear overs look like your car has a boner on the side of it. I think the rear overs would look 10000 times better if you extended the boner cover from the front of the over all the way to the rear. Its like its only flaring out in the middle of the fender... And the front fenders look like they don't belong on the car, looks like you stole them off another bigger car. haha

Not my taste but if that's what you like then good job. Looks clean.

XMcEvilson 01-30-2014 10:49 AM

2010 post. but yeah that giant gap between the body and front fender doesn't look right. It looked better in the before pic 180sx style.

z31dude 01-30-2014 11:03 AM

old thread lol. I dint mind the front, but the rear fenders come out way to far in one area. if it was that wide and worked it's self down with the body line, it would look perfect.

z31dude 01-30-2014 11:04 AM

i wonder what happened to this car.

drift_student 01-31-2014 03:57 PM

Jesta Drift and I go way back. He's a true 240 enthusiast and has had this car since he was 16 (nearly 20 years!
) and still does!

This car has been through many SR20s and even a turbo single cam with nitrous! The car now has a full GTO LSI/T56 swap, with plans to eventually turbo it.

If I remember correctly, the widebody and sideskirts were custom made for the Signal drift cars. He was somehow able to buy the only remaining set. They are something like +65 front and +85 rear. The rears were bulged to hide those massive 12" wide wheels without running stupid amounts of camber.

The car also has R33 GTR brakes up front.

z31dude 01-31-2014 04:04 PM

yea now that you say that, it looks exactly like the signal auto hatch, just not the same color lol. but that's cool as shit he got those.

z31dude 01-31-2014 04:06 PM

why doesn't he bring it out to any events, or post on here or anything at all.
