Re: R33 Front Bumper purchase!

You get the OEM R33 conversion bumper (with R33 headlights) or that aftermarket one?

Re: R33 Front Bumper purchase!

did you get the whole kit? because the R33 hangs lower that the stock body and i would only imagine that the trouble you may have trying to color match it. what is it made of?

This was my initial question, lol. I don't know why someone would want their Honda to look like a Nissan...I mean, I love Skylines; but If I wanted one I would of imported one...Oh wait, that's almost impossible.

Re: R33 Front Bumper purchase!

I agree. Ur drive a prelude not a skyline. Keep it that way lol. As to importing a car goes tho the trick is to do it as parts. Motor is one shipment and the car is another. then its cheaper and u don't have to worry about all the bs.

The only problem with kit cars is that they're even more frowned upon then the car put together itself. The DOT would be all over your ass if they found out you snuck in a Skyline/Silvia/DC2/EK like this. And you would also have to do the Safety/Emissions modifications yourself (if you want it street legal).

Still, if I ever got an R34 it'd be a kit car, lol.

not really. that would just to be to get around importing the complete car and all that garbage. all you would really need is a DOT compliant windshield/emissions

Re: R33 Front Bumper purchase!

^you ship the motor and shell separately because shipping "car parts" is cheaper than shipping a whole car. then you have to get it registered as a kit car once you put the motor back in it. still difficult but is the only way you can get skylines and otherwise illegal cars to the u.s.
