UPDATE!!!

Got the car back for the hollidays,

it's still not 100% done, it's going back on the 7th to finish my rear lip, interior and valve covers.

Not my best camera work, but you get the idea.

will take some more pics tommorow, especially of the CF spoiler :)

Showed my friends your car when you first got it, they were all jealous roflmao

Can't wait to see it done out of the body shop. I think those chameleon lug nuts go for like $100 if I recall correctly on some random sites I saw them at.

Wow! That looks like a fun project. Take your time and don't cheap out on anything. Er, if you bought a skyline in the first place, I guess you wouldn't. +1 on the fiberglass enclosure. It's hard to tell how it's going to sit in the trunk by the pictures, but it looks like you have a good shape going there. Are you going to paint, or carpet it?

Oh, and by the way... Your nuts are gorgeous! :m_thumrig
(sorry, I had to)

If you want color changing lugs, be a baller and get the good stuff.

Project Kics Neo Chro :3_winkthu
http://www.optionimports.com/kiprr40neoch.html

I'll be getting some of these once I order rims for my car.
yea, that's the color i was after,

but DAMN $260 for lug nuts is ****ing insane! they cost almost as much as the rims i had on my tib LOL. my gf would kill me if i spent that much on nuts...


oh and b-dirty, trust me, i'm not cheaping out. i'm burning a hole in my pockets at the bodyshop.....

the boxes are getting painted, they may not come out PROFESIONALLY looking since this is my first time working with bodyfiller, but that's not really my first priority on those. They just need to look decent and sound good.

oh and i'm glad you love my nuts :) would you like to touch?

What's up with the door alignment on driver's side?
you mean passenger side smartypants! :p

that's actually just an illusion, they taped off the bottom of the rear window when they primed it and when they took it off it was still black.... so it looks misaligned but it's not :)

It may be the blurry pic but it doesn't look like your door lines up correctly on the driver side.
