    Sam's S15 - Mediocrity At Its Best

    Hi guys,

    Thought I'd actually start a build thread for my Silvia. When I purchased the car, I was the first owner in Oz, it was completely stock (the way I wanted it), and looked like this:






    Almost a year later, and I've bought more things for it than I've actually put on the car. A few people can vouch for how much shit I've got lying in wait to go on this thing (RoadsterGarage is one of them). Anyway, it looks like this now:











    It's a fair way from finished yet. Plans for the car? Track work, hopefully a fair bit of it. This is my first real car, before this I just had a run-around Lancer while on my P's and until I found this. I'll throw up some pics of what's actually on the car and what's not very soon.

    Feel free to comment, constructive criticism is welcome as this is my first attempt. Cheers guys.
