Well i sold a car to fund this car. the kit and fenders was one of the first things i bought with the money. the fitment with the piping and exhaust was great, and the exhaust sounds great. so far im happy with isis. as far as xxr's.. i know trust me, it was pretty upsetting. but wheels are interchangeable, and i have a lot of money into this car , more than i sold the other car for and probably more than this silvia is worth honestly. i'll rock these through the winter and by summer i'll have more money to put into this.

The coupe is righteous, as I give this build my blessing. But them rims must go, no excuses about it.

if you want to paypal me some $ im all for it. isn't cheap building a car that was a skull and nothing else, i have around $14k into this and everything was done by myself & my pops. rims can be changed out easily, they'll do fine for now until i can catch back up on money.

If I had not gone manic and spent the last of my fortune on hookers and pure cut powder during a hotel sexcapade. You would have been ordering rims by now. That being said, I am dirt broke as well.

I know where your coming from man, especially with the $$$/rim situation. Keep up the righteous work.

Really now... coming from a guy who sports tacky canards and ugly ass wrapped leather seats to say "SILVIA", shit at least he can spell on his build thread. Hes work and preparation is way too thorough and legitimate to be compared to some macco paint job.
