Project Tandem of Die- Replica of Justin Shreeve's S13

Postby mikep415 » Thu Jan 30, 2014 3:36 pm

i started a project ive been wanting to do but never got around to doing so. This will be a replica of Justin Shreeves car from Tandem Of Die. I might even make Joe's 180sx since i have just about everything for his car as well but we'll see. this will be phase 1 of the build.. phase 2 will be a fully painted version but that'll be later.

Body: D-like s13
accessories:
-Pandora inner body kit
-WUN s13 lens
-PS13 yok rear buckets
-some hand made items
wheels:
-mikuni factory WORK equips in 9mm all around(currently pictured 7/9mm)

the goal...

the plan is to replicate as much details as possible. as for the vents on the hood, i be chopping off some hood vents off another body. I'll slowly be updating this thread since i still have other projects to finish. stay tuned!

I fitted the rear under body. The Pandora s13 is about 1-2mm wider on both sides compared to the D-like s13. To have it fit decently, I had to cut the rear into 3 sections. Not bad but still needs work and maybe come down 2mm.

Also found a hood vent to use..

With working on other projects for others, I don't really have much time to dump on this so I do what I can with the time I have lol. I am still playing with different paint samples but I hope to have a good one tonight and start spraying. I ended up cutting the fenders out and using the inner fenders as well. Weathered them a little after spraying them from the outside.

Also painted the front fenders

Not much of an update but I did a little more weathering on the inner pieces
Image

also get Justins Oregon plates custom made by wrap-up =)

Finally got some paint on this thing. The rear fenders still need to be painted as well as the exterior window trim. Inside window trim has been painted last night. After the body is painted, on to the details and a whole lot of it! lol

rear quarters are painted. Still need to paint exterior window trim, roof/trunk spoilers, rear under bumper, and mirrors as far as the main body goes. Front and rear bash bars along with tons of detail to follow.

small update.

ALL body pieces are painted except side mirrors. I'll be masking the body up tonight to get the exterior window trim, and trunk painted. From there, i'll be adding the WUN decal lens, finish front and rear bash bars, New intercooler piping w/BOV, and as much detail as I can capture.

Small update guys...

exterior trim along with trunk have been painted. Wrap-up yokomo s13 lens and yok s13 rear buckets are on, and added a TOD decal but I will be getting a better one made soon. I still need to finish the front and rear bash bars, BOV, roof and trunk wing install paint and install side mirrors, LOTS of DETAILs, Misc wires and goo the hood vent down in place. I should have this done soon since my work table is starting to clear up.

more to come. sorry I know, this has been a very VERY slow progress thread.
