Thanks! i think i mentioned it in this thread somewhere but i PM'd you just incase you happen to miss this post.

the body is pretty much done, just a few extra pieces to finish. This will be shown at 3 events next month in San Diego california. B&G suspension meet, 2M Autowerks grand opening, and Auto Fashion USA grand Opening.

Awesome job!Much respect!

Question. How many offset are those wheels? And what kind of rear bumper / diffuser is that?

It came from the D-like Soarer. I am not saying i am the first, but i have yet to see anyone use this diffuser on this specific body, or any other body for that matter. At least not on this forum, that is. I'm sure the folks in japan have tho lol.

Mike, I think that if a better pic of this ride would have made it into our contest you would have made the finals. There is always next year.

lol no worries bro! i wasn't really planning on entering but a friend kept telling me to, and i sent whatever photos i had on my phone which weren't all that great lol. i didn't really know what exactly the contest was looking for whether it was airbrushed work or strictly detailed bodies from street style, D1, etc. but its all good. A lot of talented finalist tho! Can't wait to see what people have to bring to the table.

few pics and then i swear, no post until finished!

I'm real excited to see this project done! If you were interested in those chrome Kawada wheels still, I saw them on Banzai Hobby's website. It looks like they have larger offsets, too.
