Here's my next project. I plan on making a full body kit for it. So far I've filled various holes, built one of the sideskirts, and filled the grill to make it look like a GTS Skyline. I don't know what color i'll paint it yet. I'm leaning towards just leaving it silver, and making it look like the body kit was just put on without paint. I want to use this as my basher body. We'll see though.

Sorry for the bad picture, but here's the stock sideskirt:

For those of you wondering how I got the body so low (since it sits really high stock), I just put a spacer under the front clip, and for the rear I cut the springs and put a little spring spacer in so it still has some decent travel.

Not much work done on the body, haha. I've been drifting it nonstop, but i'll pick up the body work soon.

I cut up some BBS mesh wheels from a model and pushed them inside some tagu wheels. Yes, the car drifts perfectly. I love how the lug nuts are hidden and everything. I did something innovative for once:P

Here are some quick pictures

Alrighty guys, chiming in for the family duo-build haha. My skyline will be similarly styled only I have a plan in my head already haha :p Im still waiting on my "baller status" wheels and lots of parts to come in, so the official start to my project will be next week some time probably. Ill be doing a BN sports/ Final Konnexion Body Kit, flush wheels with shaved sidewalls, a roof spoiler (like DMAX), and some little other secret things.... Also painting it ice black pearl with chartrouse wheels and white wheels.

xoxide

Jonah, the sideskirts have little add on flares (which I will not be using), because its the calsonic race version. The spoilers I took off because im going for the clean look.

faze could you clear your pm box?

Yea, I just cleared it out, sorry about that. I also replied to your visitor message.

I'll show you how I made the wheels a little bit later. I don't want to take them apart yet :p

Got a little work done on the front and rear bumpers. Still a loooonggg way to go though. Making the lip bigger on the rear bumper and probably on the front as well. C&C Plox? :D

man this car is coming along well! what have you got in store for clipping it?

xoxide
2010.07.05, 01:19 PM
Normal Side clips and then a custom front clip that connects into the soon-to-be-made intercooler. Ive made the cow catcher and rear bumper bigger and better, pics in a few.

How I made the wheels is really simple. I just got lucky finding a wheel that fit perfectly inside my tagu wheels. I just trimmed away the model wheel, until I could push it into the dish part of the kyosho wheel.

Alright, front bumper just needs a little more putty in some areas. Started the skirts (not pictured), and the rear bumper needs some detail putty work. Hoping to have all the putty work done and the body primed by Friday. Lemme know whatcha think guys!

Oh, the intercooler is just mocked up, and thats take under the front lip... Not wild bondo haha. Intercooler will be more scale and much nicer looking when done.

Obviously I wont be using those wheels, and that stance isnt near what it will be, but its getting there.

can i see some unmounted pics with it just resting on the floor? extremely good progress though :D

xoxide
2010.07.09, 06:16 PM
Yeah haha sure ill get some later.... May I ask why? Out of curiosity?

Jonah
2010.07.09, 07:40 PM
idk for some reason i keep seeing the front looking slanted but im thinking it's the way it's rested on the dummy chassis

xoxide
2010.07.09, 08:04 PM
Yeah it is haha cause I was trying to make the wheels flush, but the other side fell off the wheels and slants down, hence the woodchip holding it up semi-even.

I haven't really made much progress on this for those of you who are wondering. College and my real car are consuming the majority of my time. I will be selling this body along with my 2.4ghz chassis when i'm done with it if anyone is interested. I worked on the rear bumper a little bit.
