Nah, it'll look clean when done. I'm not a huge fan of the front end he's doing, but when done right it looks clean as hell. Hell, if you think his car is ricey, get on zilvia and take a look around

My end goal is all OEM nissan aero and front end. OEM s15 bumper/lights/non-vent conversion fenders. With this set-up i'll have the oem wing and oem sideskirts. Eventually i want a road friendly, fast car that i can track with no issues. So urethane is the best option. And appeals to my taste, always hated pop-ups, always loved s15.
It's not like im doing a bell bottom kit, vent fender, zip tie together "drift" car.
And my car is relatively quick.

To the person who asks conservatively i'd say at 15psi im in the low 300's. But, my precision turbo is getting rebuilt and i will be disappointed if i'm not into the 4's maxing my 550 injectors, but then again i have 750's to go in when i go to dyno/dial in my set-up.

But seriously though... urethane is the way to go. One look under the lip on my front bumper proves that.

@Wax: Your car is not rice. Is it becoming more and more common to do that swap? Perhaps. But who gives a **** if it's your time and money going into what you want your car to become.

@Empire: Damn that wrap is coming along great.

Looking great! What kind of numbers does this car put down? I've seen plenty of it in this thread, but off hand idk any power numbers.

Loving this NSX. Saw this thread posted up on my350z, and about blew my pants to pieces. The video at the bottom is HNNNNNGGGHHHHHHH!
Color is nice but it needs more tire and more power.

iirc there was someone in here who did a bit of custom carbon fiber fab a few months back, before I start going through a bunch of pages while I'm at work, does anyone know who it was and a way to contact them?

/lurkmoar


Edit: nice vinyl Empire, usually not a fan of wraps but it looks like it's coming along quite nicely.
