Do you think you cut away enough of the bumper when you fitted the FMIC?? I reckon you could have taken just a shade more off! :D

Seriously though, looks well nice. Lovin rear arches and low level spoiler.Looks badass!!! :devil:

I don't know why but when I look at the bumper it stirs up memorys of the Cylon Centurion out of the original series of Battlestar Galactica:-



I think its because it looks so menacing.

Just need the knight rider style light under the lip and your there

bonnet lip was on it when i had it m8, i've only seen one other in this country but he had no idea what make it was either :sorry:
you can buy a nismo one but that is only a lip over the front grill not the lights aswell , this double's as slight headlamp eyebrows which adds to the menacing front end

Yep, there is about 8mm's worth of washers on the bonnet to vent it, cheapo bonnet vent until inspiration hits me with what i want to do to the bonnet, a red weave carbon bonnet would be nice but thats probably not possible

Finally after nearly 3 years i got it on the track, took it to curborough sprint track with my jap car club and didn't do badly at all considering Its got really bad boost setup problems where the full power doesn't come in til 6000 rpm which i always change up at 6.5k and even then its only running .8bar and is setup to run .94, when MGT set it up it peaked at 3200rpm and held till the redline and with a close ratio diff fitted it was a hell of a lot faster than it is now..:(

I came 6th out of 10, the course is tight as hell and I only used 2nd/3rd all the way round...Its not at all suited to a skyline one bit, i could really feel the size and weight of it in the bends, maybe the 4wd of the gtr with a well sorted suspension setup would've made a difference? Still... throwing it from one side to the other in tight 2nd gear bends was probably more fun in this than the S2000 and some of the other cars that were there..

Beaten by a 400bhp evo, very well driven scooby sti, a 320atw RX7, mr2turbo and a celica GT4

heres a few pics...
