Yes it was "my" fault. It was error by both drivers, mostly mine. Oh well that's why it's called an accident right?

I am very grateful that its easily fixed.

Thinking about aero... hm hm hm.

Right now Im looking at using the money to buy a JDM kouki front/turnsignals new fender and parking lamp + paint and maybe some used coilovers. I think I'll do a wingless trunk. Anyidea how much it would cost to have that painted red?

Sorry to see the pain...

but it aint all that bad lol

JDM stock signals should only be about 40 bucks lol

But you have to hard wire them in since the USDM signals wont fit...

But all worth it!

dont need to hard wire them since jdm bumper dosnt have corner lights like the US bumper cut the plug off and splice it to the turnsignal wire and it will plug in to the jdm turnsignal

also oem jdm turn signal average for about $90-120 IF you can find them or u can get the ebay clear ones for like $20-40 lol

As it sits right now after the drift practice day.
I just want to toot my own horn.

I've driven the car for a year, open diff. "Drifted" twice, both times in the rain; my car is automatic.

Wednesday 9pm: Make shirts for event
Thursday 7am: Get home from staying up all night making shirts//install j30 VLSD
9am:Go to work
4pm: Get off work//get tires mounted on SE wheels
6pm: Arrive at HPT and get tech'd
6.30pm: DRIFT

and drift I did, after 2 runs on a basic figure 8 lot I moved to our advanced course where I was doing top of 2nd feint initiations into our big sweeper. I was really proud of myself considering I was drifting the ENTIRE sweeper with a COMPLETELY stock car, while there were cars with coilovers AND boost that were failing completely!

videos of the course with my friend Bryan's daily s13
[Stock KA24DE//Blown JIC's//j30 diff... thats all folks]

Outside of car

There were no videos of me since I got there so late
Heres kinda proof [I'm in the bad *** green hat, holding a tech sheet]
