I hope you can get pics up soon. If it's along the line of what i'm thinkin and you can make it look good, then this should be good.

Just what are you doing? This is ridiculous, cant you just tell us your plan now? I lost all patience for "hype" because of that "American Style" Godzilla movie 6 or 7 years back. Besides, your website takes forever to load, and one pic a day just isn't cutting it.

The Xmod Skyline body is as heavy as a brick, well maybe just a little lighter.

But everytime you wanna change the body kit you have to dremel the re-bondo and re-paint.

just a bit lighter, lol... it's not THAT much heavier than the iwaver body i have.

and the more he changes his bodykit the more often he'll faint from the bondo smell

what i still don't understand is the point of this mod. if you're gonna race this thing, i'm not sure you'd want to have bondo'd parts weighing you down... i'm pretty sure a shaved xmod body will be the same weight as this when you're done with it.

The point to any mod is to see if it can be done. If it works for it's intended purpose then that's a bonus.
