Default My S13...

Here's some pics of one of my other long term projects...

This is with RSR down springs...before the 5-lug conversion and R32 wheels.


Then I prepped, painted, and installed the pignose front lip, JDM side skirts, and rear valence pieces.







I just had it tinted so I need to get moar pics!

Well they never made Silvias in the states so all 240s came with pop-up headlights (89-94)...

I never knew that about 'onevia'...ty

Well that's just it...a silvia is a coupe with non-pop-ups, a 180sx is a hatch with pop-ups, a Sil80 is a hatch with non-pop-ups, and a coupe with pop-ups was never an option...in Japan.

True, but the dudes in Japan do put the pop up lights on the coupes. That what I was trying to say. I was just saying that the Onevia is just like a nickname when the pop up lights are added, kinda like the Sileighty with the coupe front.....
