Lost the love, then rigained the love for my Si-R

As you all might know this was my car when I got it:

Then I put an exhaust on it, then changed the wheels (sneaky shot of my 3rd!)





Then I got the spray job and a GReddy splitter:



(Pre GReddy spraying)


I then got the skirts and GReddy lip sprayed:

Before:


After:


Then everyone kept on driving into it and I got a bit bored of it. All my money for improving it went on MOT and brakes etc etc so I lost the love.

Recently fitted some Skunk2 coilover springs on Koni Yellows. Ride is horrendous but it looks amazing! I measured approx 80 - 90 mm drop.

The car is still a bit tatty but the coilovers have given it a whole new look. And given me the urge to spend some cash on it again. Pics:



The first drive. 100 m down the road - the first time it got stuck








Lower than a can of coke


Ok none of these pics show the ride fully settled so it should get a bit lower over the next week or two.

Also, the car is very dirty in these pics!

Re: Lost the love, then rigained the love for my Si-R

Mine is lower than yours ^^^

hehehe

OP I hope your building the car for you and not for anyone else. I lost the passion for mines awhile back also. I was enjoying it for the looks of peoples faces rather than what I think about it. What inspired me was thinking of how bad I wanted this car. Now i feel refreshed!

Re: Lost the love, then rigained the love for my Si-R

Thanks guys. It's going into the spray shop to get the wheels sprayed. I'll get some pics up at the end of this week (Maybe). Also, you'll be happy to know I gave it a good clean. And it looked like a whole new car! Earlier I drove past a kid and he pointed at my car with his mouth open and looked at his dad. he may have only been 3 or 4 but that's all I need. I remember seeing cars when I was young and thinking AAAARGH!!

And SoFlaKidd and HondaVerno the springs have settled now so I may stand a chance!

I'll also get some interior ones up once I've hoovered it!

Re: Lost the love, then rigained the love for my Si-R

I've felt as if I'm losing the love for my Lude right now but honestly weather and mood hasn't been very favorable to cars recently.

Good stuff though, man!

Re: Lost the love, then rigained the love for my Si-R

I know what you mean. All it takes is a cash injection though. (Easier said than done!)

Here's a pic of the car with the wheels done! (Needs a clean again and bad quality photo)

Re: Lost the love, then rigained the love for my Si-R

I actually washed my car today. Like, proper washed it. I also put on a couple of stickers so it would have been a shame, as it was a nice day, if I didn't get some shots: (Check out my mates evo VI Tommi Mak. Sub 4 second 0 - 60!)
