S15 wing mirrors
custom tail pipe
custom RC wheels
custom indicator lenses
scratch built: interior tub to replicate 1/1 silvia

taz added a topic in On The Workbenchstreet/drift mx5!Hello chaps,
this was a fairly quicky build, although I got very lazy in between building it.
Wanted another model to add to my little collection.
Mods are as follows
Suspension lowered and cambered to fit new wheels. (Yet to stretch rear tyre somehow but leaving it for now even though it looks a little unrealstic!!)
Exhaust sytem chopped and modified for new shotgun (single barrel) style exhaust
Tinted rear lights, rear window and front indicator lenses with Tamiya smoke.
Custom front lip.
Drivers bucket seat with harness
Dished steering wheel
JDM dildo gear knob
grip tape on handbrake with drift button
Here's the pics, I hope you like it as I do!!! ( the pics are pretty awful, sorry!)
not sure if this is the right section, as its not totally finished! Need to sort the rear tyres out, maybe paint wheel centres aswell.
