I said without formal instruction

i.e. no classes in design, no formal schooling. As an obsession with the lines of the car, I practiced like mad before I was satisfied with any of my sketches. I think with some actual help it may become even better. Years of love for something to maybe make it better some day? We'll see

Of all pictured the Bodyshop Kobayashi is the winner. Anyone importing this? The additional tire width allowed would be very welcome.

All torque, no traction...Exige S.
Real sports cars don't have A/C!

Give me a day or two to update this. Bodyshop Kobayashi has not imported their wide series 2 kit yet to anywhere out of Japan. A couple have been produced though for Japanese exiges. User PascalB was kind enough to share some pics of his modified series 1 which will also appear, as will an addition of Kawahara Motorsport (JPN) and Bodyshop Kobayashi's other exterior parts... in addition to more pics of the ones already featured of course. Cheers you guys, glad so many like the thread

Does anyone know the specifics on these wheels? Who makes them? Sizes? They look rather large, but I do like the design a lot!!! I think I see O.Z. logos on there in the first pic... not sure. Anyone?

I like the rear fender flares of the Esthi body kit, just the right amount.

I had an unexpected front end damage, actually the car got loose in the trailer. While it was being repaired I had the body shop cut off the front rectangular squeare box and make it flush. I will try and post a picture of it.

Also I guess mine doesn't have the normal North American rear grill either because I don't have the reflectors.
With the LED tail lights the reflector is in the lamp and there was no longer a need to have it on the grille.

torque (tôrk) n. - an excuse for the lack of momentum.
