Hy all this is my first drift build and its just a weekender so sorry if i take a bit between posts, but here it is i reasently bought a s13 rolling shell fullly caged from Ivan at TTS performance with a rb26det and heaps of bits. The plan is to have it buit for power cruise at QR in Sept.

This is a back yarder but i have access to most panel shop equiptment.

The first pic is my photoshop idea of th finished product.

Just a pics from when we got it, i have most the front end moked up just got to make some mounts and brakets. the kiit needs a lot of work still and so dus the rad support Plus i plan to tub the Front.

Ok here it is back from a full weekend, and as always i didn't get as much dun as i planed

1. second wheel arch cut and being welded
2. M80 spot welder awesome if you can get your hands on one
3. the finished wheel arch
4. i traced all my mods to the fibre glass Quarter on the drivers side
5. cut the template and marked it out on the passengers side over fender
6. all cut and mounted
7. fully stripped and mounted on rotisserie
8. then i flipped the car and cleaned the inner arch and the inside of the over fender
9. for the first layer i used woven mating for strength
10. then i used thick chop-strand to add evan more strength
11. flipped back up and stripped back to metal and all glass on

It's no big job to make one up yourself... If your handy with a welder that is.

This is going to be the body colour, the close up of the sub frame show the colour as it will look in the sun (hopefully these parts dont see the sun tomuch)
with these bits red and the contole arms and struts gold what is every ones thoughts on painting the diff housing and drive shafts gold.
