Because i new that at some point the engine would be swapped, it was better to be ready for some more power and therefor some better stoppies, changed the OEM Spec-S brakes to a Z33 Brembo conversion including some Stoptech discs and DS2500 pads all around.
even after a 4 year build i still couldn’t decide what colour the car should be painted and therefor i decided to play save and let it paint in Audi white.
unfortunately the car was brought back 3 times to the bodyworker as the paintjob was done so freakin bad i decided not to be cheap on the paint and 3 times was enough and bring the car to a real bodyworker that i knew wasn’t cheap but was a magician in this line of work (you could also name him the Dutch Chris Pegler)
a week later, the “real” bodyworker picked up my car.
btw, my mate who installed the kit, also did a shit job which resulted in the rearbumper installed to much to the rear and therefor it created a gab below the taillights, this and the paintjob made me to decide this wasn’t the right place for my car being build.
even though, kudoos to my mate as he did an awesome job on the arches etc.
But good choices had to be made.
Unfortunately thanks to the bad bodywork, i had to order some new Vertex Edge skirts and rear fenders (remind the gab below the taillights) because the first parts were being adjusted and therefor eol (end of life) thanks for Japwestmods for sorting me out on this!
After some months af waiting for the new panels and skirts to arrive, my bodyworker could finally start with the car, took old parts of and new parts on.
had a call that moment from him to tell me the bodywork was even done more badly then the eye could tell, lots of small points where there was rust below the paint and even more points where the metal wasn’t smooth.
So this needed to fixed and so he did.
Can’t tell you my feelings when these pictures were send to me
It was the moment when my bodyworker was fixing the bad bits and started with everything when i noticed a picture from an stock body S15 in Australia on Instagram when i knew, this colour is what i need, THIS is what i want it to be painted in!!!!!!!
with this build i always had in mind to put some bad ass Ganador Super LED mirrors on, but due to availability and the higher prices the i wasn’t able to get old on some, so i ordered some S15 LED mirrors through JDMdistro.
The reason i needed some LED mirrors is mainly because i couldn’t or wanted to cut my fenders (they weren’t pre-installed wholes for the indicators)
Remembered when i mentioned i installed the airsuspension, here i took it to an Airsuspension expert which wired and installed all hoses and electra for the air, including installing all sensors of the kit.
