Hey guys the build is slowly coming apart. Haha the car has been fully stripped. I'll put pictures on my photobucket and I can't figure out which link to use, so I'd use the one from previous. Or I'll see if Aaron can help me out. All the bottom crossmembers, rear end housings are sandblasted and painted white. I also just purchased a 22b wide body kit from Europe. So it's not going to stay the original type r but it'll be close. This way I can fit some nice rubber under her. The next step is to finish the seam welding and should have some more pics up in the next day or two.

Photobucket has been updated. Take a look, let me know what you think.
Under braces have been painted white. For highlighted look and also to identify a leak easier. White spray lines on chassis are spots that will be seam welded. Enjoy!!

Subscribed. Good luck with the Kit, are you getting someone to install for you or going at it yourself? Its really not rocket science.

Wow. I like your car. I work to much to do it myself. I'm having the body painted at a shop. And since the car was an east coast car it has the typical rust spots on quarter panel and rockers. That's the main reason I got the kit.
Were you able to put a wider tire? I really wish I knew I could use the stock bumpers. But didn't find that out till after I bought the 22b. Oh well. It's been a great learning process and while car is at paint I'll be tearing into motor and transmission.

I don't know about an HTAuto kit but I used the stock bumper beam on the rear for my Aerosim Kit. I didn't get the front bumper I've still got a front RS cover.

Post them up here!

Click the section where it says IMG on your photobucket. It usually copies it automatically and then paste it in here.

It will be like this -
HTML:
[img]http://www.website.com/picture.jpg[/img]

Sometimes they include a link to your photobucket so it will appear like this -
HTML:
[url=http://www.photobucket.com][img]http://www.website.com/picture.jpg[/img][/url]
