Comment all you want, doesnt matter to me. I'll cut a few things short though before I hear them.....those are obviously the steelies w/hubcap covers on my ride. Reason being I wanted to see how it looked after the paintjob with the kit before I got my rims. Same thing with the lowering, I want to get the rims before I decide how low to go. that plus the VIS Omega kit sits REALLY low so I need to determine where to go with height after I get the rims. In terms of body work all I got left is to color sand it after 30 days to add the depth, and add the mesh to the rear. And of course and exhaust is needed.... All the work you see here was done by me before dropping it off.....The color is a Platinum metallic with flake in it...not the stock silver. Again, its a VIS Omega kit all the way around with a mid wing in the rear. Future ideas are welcome ;)

edit: pardon the quality of the pics, I'll get better ones this weekend......and P.S.- The omega kit was a BIATCH to get to sit correctly

#1.....the front was SCREWED into my side panels. Basically I counter sunk the area a bit with a grinder, dropped the screws in with some silicon sealant and let dry. Then I ground down the screw head so the would sit a lil less the flush. Then I used some dynalite gold to cover up, sanded smooth and used putty to cover the rest...

Front emblem...

And now you can see where I removed the front emblem, filled with DynaGold filler again and smoothed then puttied. It turned out seamless again in the finished job (wish I gotten a close up)

did you get your engine bay painted to?..looks nice bro
hehe, ok im done posting now. and Nope, didnt get the engine bay done. I have a new engine (well, from Japan so new to me) sitting waiting for me at a friends shop in Orange County that I plan to put in there, I really didnt want to deal with it until after I remove the old engine....so for now it stays the tanish primerish color that it is ;)

oh, and just to be clear....none of the kit is molded onto the body. I really didnt want to deal with cracks and what notalong the edge where it would be. I think NissanFreak (name?) addressed this in his recent post...I felt the same way...
