Pretty stockish S13, bought it about 5 months ago and have done everything so far on it that you can see including; paint, seats, lights, BC coilovers, MB Quart sound system and a few other bits and pieces. looking for a new set of wheels as i know these ones arent great, so any suggestions would be great. also looking at getting a det & man conversion soonish. I'm pretty new to the car scene so don't be too much of a hater!

these photos are before i put the coilovers in, so its much lower now

Paint was done by SENROC would did an awesome and would diffidently recommend to anyone looking to get there car bodywork done at. there PH:0403863011 Matt

I understand you're new and you have your P's but please for the love of god ditch those wheels, put it on its guts then sell it and start again.. S13's worldwide deserve better.

You as a person also deserve better than an auto SR with a China strut brace

What made you want to respray the car?

Had a lot of small dints everywhere that where taken out, and the paint was pretty rough in some areas, if you saw both in flesh you would understand why and would also appreciate the new paint job. plus i personally dont like the stock colour and i wanted some thing that stood out and was different to what ive seen before. but each to there own, everyone that has come up to me and seen it in flesh loves it so...

i would have done manual conversion over respray

The pinstripe of the 13 is a wierd place to have 2 tone line as its too low... kiinda needs widebody and kit to have a chance of working with that style paint job

Dont even know what wheels would make it work as is

im doing the manual conversion when i do the engine conversion... and i got the money to play with this car so i just want something different from your typical pig black S13, this isnt a drift pig and neva will be. the paint is down to there as its the body line of the car and i hate all those massive flared out kits, they look shit on street cars. IMO anyway

This forum is called JDM Style Tuning for a reason. Good on you for trying something new though.

not feeling that paint. on another note, why a green pinstripe? everyone know blue and green shouldnt be seen with a colour inbetween. rule 1 of year 8 art class.


quickly ad the following:
some 17x9 and 18x10/11 work M1R's

Damn i was expecting so much more from seeing the first pics lol

I really think you should buy a hot rod and sell this so someone can spray it matt black and drift it

In time you will come to realise that money could have better been spent on aqua tint.... And that the stock paint was awesome anyway...

Aslong as you enjoy it though I guess that's all that matters

I don't like the paint either but good on you for not having a flogged out looking hack of a car. So many rough as Silvias around these days.

Nah, i think he's trying to say your asthetic style doesn't match what is commonly seen 'cool/JDM' on this forum.

I don't think anyone uses the term 'full sik' anymore.. Everyone knows that if you want mad reach arounds at a meet up you need Rota's, mild stretch and sub par fitment.

If you want to be cool and be able to shoot fuckers a wry smile and have ****s doin' the five knuckle shuffle when they see your car whilst all the while having a mimimum of 2 sluts in your vehicle then you need to have that fucker on the ground and have real deal hollyfield wheels so even the purists pretentious arseholes like me reckon you're a bad ****.. Oh.. and aqua tint.. you cannot survive here without aqua tint.. Get on it home slice

Honestly, I can't get it out of my head. This car *in all seriousness* needs aqua tint.

Well the paint job is different
So good on you for going a different way

The new wheels look so much better too

+ 1 for doing something different :)

Paint job makes it look alot cleaner mate.. But id say the pinstripe would have been better if it was a dark grey or alloy look. The new wheels make it look 10000 times better. Needs manual for sure.
Hopefully everything comes together to make a decent all round car in the end..
