Now for the body:

Here it is with body posts cut. [sigh] haha
Yokomo muffler set.
I didn’t kno how I was gna make use of the mounts it came with
It seemed hard to mount on the rear.
So I went for the side exit exhaust
Glad I went with the option.

Now about the decals
If I had the option I woulda left the body simple and not overdone with decals.
But it was all for a reason.
Disguise the imperfections on my paint
Somehow make the widebody kit joints discreet
Still have some bad kit fitment exposed tho


<img src=http://img96.imageshack.us/img96/1295/1000210af7.jpg>

<img src=http://img86.imageshack.us/img86/7453/1000211el1.jpg>
WARNING!
<img src=http://img346.imageshack.us/img346/8616/1000212uv0.jpg>
Why the black stripe?
Had to cover pre drilled holes and expose only the new ones
<img src=http://img86.imageshack.us/img86/6228/1000213rm0.jpg>
Why 23?
Haha just that I only sourced the extra decals from the 350z race kit body my cousin had..
<img src=http://img153.imageshack.us/img153/9642/1000214rb1.jpg>

Yes it is now an Audi. Don’t complain. Didn’t come with a vw windshield decal. And I like it as an audi. VW in grown up clothes.

<img src=http://img291.imageshack.us/img291/8336/1000217ef3.jpg>

From ugly stock mirrors to these..
<img src=http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/9974/48289277mvd2.jpg>

To define the 2 door conversion..
The b pillar looks retarded right now.

Pics of the projektzwo mirror building/sculpting

And if I can get a better camera..
High res pics and maybe even rolling shots.
