UPDATE:March 1 2006
Car preped for wide bodykit moulding. I started by taking the side abs mouldings off and abs rear bumper. I rust checked the whole underside of the car and then started to shave the pins from the clips for the abs off. I recieved the new combat rear bumper (96-98 converted rear bumper). I am making my own side skirts. The wide body is goin to be made with foam then a coat of drywall compound to make the kits smooth so that the fiberglass wrapped over top wont eat away the foam and it can then crack away when im done. As i am doing this i am also gunna be fiberglassing a set of nissan skyline GTR tail lights into my car. This will really give the car a good look.

96 front end conversion without lights
Custom Fiberglass Subbox
Dual Exhaust n subs
I have a 3.1 V6, the quicker car, under the hood.This is my motor mods...cold air intake hose covers in paint. Not many mods to the motor.
I also have a dual exhaust system with vibrant performance mufflers With 4 inch tips
I have no new pics of my car yet they will be up soon
Right now im in the stage of a whole front end conversion from my 95 to a 96. This requires these parts:
1) 96 hood
2) 96 Front fenders (making it easier so u don't have to make new headlight brakets
3) 96 front bumper ----> or body kit
4) 96 Hood latch
a scrap yard good for parts. Basicly put all the stuff on and fit it. For the turn signal you have the splice into the new light.
The car right now is currently being preped for paint.
