As some of you know i havent really posted pics of my car in some time since i really didnt have any new ones lol.
This is how my car use to look about 2 months ago before Sevenstock was announced




I know i will get a lot of flame/hate for destroying another FD from a lot of people here, but im really ok with it cause i will probably get some love from others.

I kinda got tired of the look of the car and wanted to change it a little bit so after Sevenstock's date was officially announced i decided to go and change the look of it with me KNOWING NOTHING! like... When i did all this, i didnt know how to mix resin, lay fiberglass, paint, prep ... ANYTHING that comes with it. I learned as i did it lol.
All this was built in 7 weeks pretty much by myself lol. I had some help here and there when i could but for the most part i busted my *** on it sleeping 3hrs max for the past 7 weeks. Going to work at 3am and to the garage right after work till 11 or midnight. I didnt really have enough time to get it to a perfect finish. There is still flaws all over that i wasnt happy with but i HAD to have the car at Sevenstock. Im just putting it out there because i know a lot of people will be pointing at the body panels not aligning and stuff. I didnt even get to match the paint 100% and was also my first time painting lol


I could have gone with Feed fenders, Origin, RE , etc etc... But as most of you know me, i kinda like to be a little different so fenders, over fenders and skirts are 1 out of 1 that i created lol. I also modified the MS front bumper a little and bought a MS replica hood.

I havent had time to transfer pics from my memory card so right now im just gonna post one that my lady took of the car last tuesday and at Sevenstock16.

But i guess this is too much talk and this is not a build thread so here are a couple pics of how miss Rexxy looks now.
Ill be posting more down the road



LET THE HATE BEGIN!!!!

Last tuesday.



Rolling to Sevenstock16
*I was fixing my seat, before anyone wonders why the awkward position lol

^ Im 100% in the body panels should fit group...

That said. I think this looks awesome! Looks like it might need a bit of final polishing / smoothing here an there, but being your first time doing this its great. Overall I like the looks of it a lot.

It is a RE Amemiya street diffuser, but I trimmed it to fit where the factory plastic piece was.

Thank you! Yea now that sevenstock passed i can now take my time and work on a panel at the time. Ill probably end up changing color of the car once i get done with the panels lol. I dont see i point on spending 400+ on the same paint over again.

But yea, it was my first time doing all this so hopefully now that ive gained some knowledge itll be a bit easier.

The concept is sick, once it is smoothed out it will look killer. I am impressed.


I love the green on the inner barrel of the wheel.

Thank you I also have some add ons i made for the front bumper to match up with the fenders and a gas door, but couldnt finish those on time.


Yea i wanted to try something different with the wheels and since the car is really dark and the lips/faces are black, i thought adding that to the barrels would be cool to try
