Hey guys,
My name is James and I am from Sydney Australia and am going to convert my current 1997 SX into an SS-III (some things may say the same due to preference).
To start off my car is sadly in the workshop after I had a minor crash after the car understeared kindasad.gif so currently I have a limited amount of money due to repairs, which I'm sure some of you understand haha. None the less I have bought a few things that i will be adding once the car is back in my hands smile.gif

These include:

JDM Tail Lights: $190 AUD (Including Postage) - From JoshuaM


OEM Fog Lights: $49 USD + $56 USD for postage - From Ebay


3 Part TRD Front Strut Brace: $410 AUD (Including Postage) - From JoshuaM


OEM Side Skirts: $25 AUD (Need to pick up)


GT-Four/SS-III WRC Spoiler/Wing: $80 AUD (Need to pick up)


SS-III Rear Splitters: $180 AUD + $30 AUD postage - From JoshuaM


SpreeLED Full Dash Conversion Kit (Blue): 24.99


Will have to prepare some of what I have bought (Re-paint and sand) but when all done should look great!
Will keep all you 6GC members updated smile.gif I hope enjoy, awesome things on their way!

Awesome! Great to see you're starting a thread. Are you planning to finish it off with the BEAMS engine at some point in the future?

Hey guys, just a quick update on my car currently since I had my crash. The front left panel has been replaced and the left rear panel has been pulled out (still needs to be painted). A new left low beam headlight has been installed, as well as some new clear side indicators! I have also picked up the spoiler and side skirts and should be doing the side skirts at left in the next month or so and the spoiler when i have rear splitters on etc. (It's a bigger job due to my car being post facelift, therefore 3 post spoiler). Anyway guys here are so before and after pictures, I think its a really good job smile.gif

Front Left Guard (Before):


Front Left Guard (After):


Rear Left Side(Before):


Rear Left Side (After):


Headlight Cases Removed & New License Plate:


Clear Side Indicators:

You did a pretty good job on that guard rail tongue.gif At least it was all cosmetic, no structural dramas to deal with.

See if you can get a package deal for the left rear paint, hatch paint, side skirts and splitters and then all the new paint will match itself. If its too expensive white isn't too hard to spray yourself on smaller pieces.

The courier just picked up your SSIII rear splitters, delivery in 2-3 business days. I paid for the additional redelivery too in case you miss the truck.

Also, the invoice came through from Japan last night for the TRD strut bar - you should have it by next Wednesday biggrin.gif

Thought about a certain white TOMS front lip? wink.gif

Yeah I think it was a really good job, the left front guard was from the wreckers and was already white! smile.gif and sadly there was structural damage, i needed new left suspension and a new left front wheel hub. and yeah i'll have to get some paint soon to do all that smile.gif and awesome man, really cannot wait to get them smile.gif thankyou again! And I'll be honest I have thought about it haha, but I think i prefer the look of just the plain SS-III Splitters for both rear and front haha tongue.gif

Hey guys,
Just a little update, still haven't gotten around to having the rear of the car painted yet (looking to paint all parts at one time). Have installed fog lights on the car but haven't wired them up yet, just needing a relay wire smile.gif Anyway here are some pictures with fog lights:

I have a sneaking suspicion that your car may have the wiring already in the car ready to either plug in or cut into... check into it smile.gif

How does the strut bar look? It takes less than 5 min to install... go do it now! Haha tongue.gif
