I wish I knew how much time and money I dumped into the 7M...

I'd probably jump off a bridge.

So i bought some S14 wide fenders for $20

And began to cut and grind and test fit them to try and make them work as best i could.

Ended up turning out OK so i riveted them on to the existing X fenders.

I think they turned out alright. yeah the are 240 fenders but they do the job i needed and were only $20.

Then bought an X8 Dmax rep hood from Joes Aero, only had to do a little finish work to make myself happy.

 

Not to bad for $300.

Haven't yet installed the hood yet i've been to busy having fun with the car doing events at good OL' grange motorsports track.

 

Some pictures with my Team mate i bought the fenders off of.

The fenders rubbed a little but this track day took care of that plus i could add a little more camber. I also tinted the headlights and corner lights which i think looks pretty sweet.

 

So Far looks like the UZ is staying right where it is, i still have the hunger for more power but its been reliable and fun so i cant beat that.

Should have bought a ford torus hood.

Would have helped with the 'bastard' look.

Then you just need some of those '80's oldsmobile rear fenders that curdly is making, and you would have a real pile-o-shit.

What's really terrifying is this car isn't too far off from my car.

 

Those fenders... What a let down. Didn't really think anyone would stop at that point and just rivet them on. Cressidas just make people not give a shit anymore huh

Gordo, the basted theme seems to be going full force with this car and not in a good way.

 

Billyhoo, only thing is your car is like 10 times better, the fenders are pretty much my spin on a abomination but fuck it it was either this or riveted on ZG flares and i couldn't justify paying 80+ for ZG flares.

 

Wanted something cheap that would clear my wheels and look half like a fender couldn't beat it for 20$, i like them for now oh well ill do some nice welded on metal flares down the road, maybe.

It wouldn't have taken much and those fenders could've been made to look like they belonged on the car. Cereally.

Keep the 1UZ. Don't give in to peer pressure. Embrace the slow reliability.

 

 

Then turbo it.

I was a little harsh about the fenders.

Hucker is right, it wouldn't take much to blend them in.

And maybe, just having the car all one shade of white.....

 

Tbone, that car is butt fuck ugly. Looks like a space ship in a cheesy SiFi movie.
