dcoe carb and brg paint and body work/ build thread if you want to call it that.

(Updated)

So I have thought about making a build thread many times but it never happened. So here is my build thread millennium jade.

I bought the car at the end of 07 for $800. The passenger door needed to be replaced other then that and a few places of chipped paint the car was perfect, well all most it was an auto-tragic. The car has seen many stages. All the thing that I have put this poor car through. So my plan was to paint the car millennium jade, But ended up painting it Brg and going with a retro inspired build.

A few current pics of the car

tein super streets

xxr rims 002 for now

Polished hood

That color is going to look sick

When did you convert over to manual? I remember when you posted pics and you still had the auto trans. Was the conversion hard or fairly straight forward?

i converted to a manual about a year and a half ago?

it was very straight forward but i also had a parts car and just swapped every thing over. how ever i only had hand tools and a jack at the time and dropped the engine and trans at the same time out of the bottom.

Did you do the NB interior swap yourself or did it come like that? I have the NB dash but I'm still trying to figure out the door panel swap.

Re: millennium jade/ build thread if you wont to call it that.

there's a lot more work done to this car than I had originally thought; glad to see you create a build thread.

the NB interior looks awesome!, like seriously awesome. what were your biggest snags in converting it?

also, it seems out of the blue that you threw on the rear flairs; what caused you to do this?

& the color, it really is going to be extremely nice. glad to see it's off of something like a GTR instead of like a, camry? or something. in toyota's defense however, they have made some extremely rich colors in the past.

lastly, what wheels and/ or color wheels are you planning on going with?
