Hi guys ! Kinda new here so let me present myself ;)
My name is Tangi I'm 19 and I'm from France but I plan to move to Birmingham(UK)soon.
I'm into japanese cars especialy S-chasis.
I work as a car mecanic but I'm pretty good at bodywork ;)

So this is my projct car ! (I daily my mom's 318i e30)
I just bougth this onevia in rough condition (bad paint, dead batterie...)
It has an SR20DE with a toda exhaust mainfold (then straigt piped) and an apexi intake, some ebay coilovers, 5lug convertion and s14 wheels aswell as a fake bride seat and an aftermarket steering wheel with a NRG quick release.
The body is rust free but the paint is shot (first mod to come: bodywork!!!)
It needs a new batterie to start but i'm confident that she is going to run like a dream B)

She's missing tail ligts aswell :rolleyes:


I hope that you appreciate the build to come ! I'll post customers cars aswell ;)

Yes sorry about that, my photoshop game is not on point yet ^^

Added 46 minutes later:

So I've painted the car last night (400V$ in materials), new (used 100V$) front right fender and new tail light (used 150V$).
Repaired the rear bumber that I had.
This gray looks so good on the car !


The car is running great with the new battery (100V$)

Next mods: wheels ! :drool2:

Don't become impatient, you could end mistaken. I was implanted lots in past and I kept caught loads mistaken but now I learnt lesson and stay patient and I doing well, rarely mistaken.

Yea having impatient is wrong, it make you like rushing and forgot what you're doing, that main reason mistaken happen.

So, here is the result !I'm in love with them !

Rolled the fenders to fit them, I also had to throw a little bit of front camber but no big deal.
