Kit ideas 12 Years ago Karma: 314
I'm hoping to get a kit on some time this year.

I have Tom's parts but I'm now leaning towards going for a hybrid kit. I don't like the look of the Full Tom's spoiler and was going rev5 anyway... so now I am thinking that I might go with a Border front with Tom's sides and rear:

Here's some pics:

Here's one with Greddy sides for interest..

If I get my 2 kitted I'm definitely going for Border front, GRacers skirts and Border spats. There's a spoiler for the Rev2 thats either called Aeroware/Aerowave or somthing similar that looks the business too. It replaces the standard one and looks similar but it rises higher and is curved not flat. Not many about with it on their cars and I think it looks amazing.

Either that or the Bomex Drift spoiler! I love that spoiler!

I've already went with Greddy sides - I think now I'll go with Border front and leaning toward Toms rear over Border spats. And although I am curretly wingless, I am thinking about the Toms duckbill ....

Mine is a mk2 Spider - have seen loads of mk3s with and without wings.

Check out the Toms Duckbill - I love it

Here's another one with Border front/Tom's sides. Not sure if the fitment is right though as it looks a little flared around the wheel arches:

Nice clean 2!

Dont like the front. From the start of the windscreen back is nice.

The yellow one has it smoothed in - so, maybe thats why it looks a bit different.

Possibly remove the Bomex scoops - apart from that, that silver one is a very nice 2 :)

Just checked - that silver one is in the pic used by the guy selling the Toms duckbills from MR2oc.com.

I would go for the GReddy side skirts and the Border front. Have you decided who is going to install and spray the kit ?

Re:Kit ideas 12 Years ago Karma: 314
I already have Tom's front, back, and sides and a Rev5 wing. But I may yet go for a Border front. There's a paint and panel place around the corner from me that seem pretty good. Haven't spoken to them about price yet but they are pretty professional outfit that do some kit fitting and have an oven etc. I don't need a show car so I am thinking about just bringing them the bits to spray in the first case, then if it doesn't match up save for a whole respray and go shaved

Re:Kit ideas 12 Years ago Karma: 140
That is probably a bad idea . It's more work but I would at least do a trial fitment before spraying the kit. If you have to jiggle the kit about you could end up cracking the new paint.

Re:Kit ideas 12 Years ago Karma: 314
Sorry I meant that I will get them to fit it all when they paint it, then if the colour doesn't match up I'll get them to paint the whole car (when I can afford it). I'm hoping the kit should all match up after going to the trouble to source genuine stuff that's in good shape.

Doesn't look too bad imo, not sure if that's the factory location, but maybe outwards a bit. I'm digging the flushmounts and sparco seats. Looks like it might have HID parking lights there?

Wow! that yellow border two is looking sweet!

I can see by flicking backwards and forwards between the pics that the lights are in a different spot though...

Still, very inspiring.. Great pics Marty and karma click for you.....

Never seen those low rise head lights before, anyone anything about them?

The car looks very frog-like in that picture :laugh:

I thought that the lights gave it a bit of a NSX look, especially with the coloured surround.
