lowering 50mm, front upper strut brace and full custom stainless exhaust system which i should get cheap cuz the guys a friend of my dads. i may tint the windows aswel.

Feel free to throw ideas aswel and if i was to de-cat it would i still pass the MOT?
 
most likely not with the de-cat, mot then decat (Y)
as for ideas get a laguna splitter, wind deflectors etc etc...its the small things that count (no sarcastic comments as i can see them coming my way lol). as said the cars tidy already so its a great base to build on

:laugh: small things that count.. i went to a scrappy not long ago and tried to get a laguna splitter but he said i could have it as its part of the bumper and if i took it he couldnt sell the bumper, sounded like BS to me but ahh well.

And i saw a 200sx any parts i could get off it? it had all decals on it and bodykit looked nice but i think the engine may be dead.

im not sure about wind deflectors ive always thought they looked really wierd lol and how abouts do i go around getting the rear windscreen wiper horizontal?
 
hmmm, maybe the brake calipers from the 200sx might fit. you will need the discs aswell.
as for the wiper i dont think you can because of the position the starting point of the motor sits at if you get what i mean. imo dewiper it. i have grommits and will send you one free of charge if you like.
heres a pic of what it looks like dewipered (excuse my messy boot its getting painted next week lol)

i think i may keep the wiper cuz im so used to not having one it feels like a luxury :laugh: and i like the look, i just think ill tint the windows get it lowered and see how it looks then maybe tint rear lights?

and for 200sx ill see what i can get off it, if it doesnt fit i can always selll it on ebay or sumin

windows tints, debadge and bumpstrip, then lower and play with the engine :)

There's a guide on here for modifying the wiper motor to sit horizontally, alternatively the second facelifts had horizontal wipers, so you could fit a motor from them.

yeah when it comes down to your car, you know you can be picky.

I want a lip splitter lol. then get it sprayed black and also a set of 50mm lowering springs.. preferably cheaper than matts £150 unless i get 35mm and chop them but we wont go into that as ive seen the debate.

Looked at the 200sx in the scrappy yesterday whilst i was getting a new coolant expansion tank as i managed to put a hole in mine lol and they are 4 stud but the brakes look massive!

I might just buy them and try them on, if not i can sell them on, oh and its been modified as i you can tell from all the decals and the laguna splitter (Y)

Any one know of any parts that will fit respectively with a bit of modifying?

Think he was asking what back box you have lol. Looking good by the way, would be interesting to know if there is a difference in sound depending on wether you have the cg10 or cg13 i guess.

I have now got the back seats removed because my little brother was sick on the way back from gloucester and it was everywhere even down the bit where the seats fold, i tried cleaning it all up but it stank this morning on the way to work so i just removed them after a load of confusion because of the gromits so i got annoyed and just pulled them and they came off :D

A little update.. my mate went into the back of my car last night, i braked for the lights as they were turning red but he thought i was gunna run them and accelerated then locked his brakes up and hit the back of my car and as hes a friend im not claiming unless i do and split the money to cover his insurance next year ;)

and as you can see my bumpers been dented which pushed through and bent the metal behind and ripped the bumper off the screws and shifted it across. the rest is self explanatory
