Went down the bodyshop today to see how they were getting on and car was all done so collected early:

Not everyones taste but I like it.

This is how the car looked when I first got it. Lucky for me it already had Runabout mirrors:

This is how it looked until going in the bodyshop with the Black Watanbes fitted:



Now its been into the bodyshop this is what it looks like:



Zoom Headlight Lids with Brightning Bonnet Vents to help cool the turbo:





MazdaSpeed Rear Spats with Underskirts Sprayed White, Also decided to get the hard top done:



Rear Bumper Lip Spolier:



Car needs a good clean as only just back from the bodyshop. More information on whats been done to the car including the interior changes can be found on my website!

I like the hood vents and the headlights lids! Why not paint the front and rear lips white too? They look a bit out of place with everything else painted white.

Honestly, I agree that it's a bit busy, but at least it's well done :)

I dig it. The headlight vents combined with the bonnet vents make the front a little busy but it looks great overall!

Looks real nice. Very clean. The sideskirts and mud flaps aren't my personal preference but they work well on your car. I would DEFFINATELY suggest painting the front R-package lip. With so much white on the car you don't even notice the black lip - painting it white would really fill out the front nicely.

Thanks for the comments.

Still a work in progress really as only had the car about 2 months.

The Brightning Scoops are useful for me as the engine had been getting hot with the turbo.

I might have to revisit the bodyshop as maybe the lips would look better sprayed, always thought they flaked too easy??

Zoom radio console on the way now with Omori Meter Gauges so a bit more JDM stuff to come for the summer!

Bodyshops have a hard time painting the lip spoilers; to get a good paint bond, they have to strip the plastic top finish right back.

I personally prefer no mudflaps at all, but if you're going to have them, track down the shorter style rear flaps. Looks are subjective, but the longer style end up rubbing on the paintwork, and cause rusting.

Painted airdams generally look like **** in little time IF the car is street driven.
I prefer the black rockers as well...both for looks and ease of care/touchup.
I would have kept the hardtop black and paint the windshield surround black too...but thats me.
White NAs rock though. Lookin good :)

ya paint those lips for sure, i couldnt even tell they were on till i read down the thread a bit and went back up to look at the pics again lol. other than that its pretty cool imo. busy sure but busy isnt always bad necessarily 8) moulding some of those pieces might help though, lol had to laugh at the gundam-ish comment from leatherface.
