Haha! You do very cool mods, Kai.

Japan is in rain season that makes white car looks really bad with water spots / stain.
It was really hot day but, I decided to remove all the water spots that my car looks clean again... ;)

When I got my driver's license in late 80's, ENKEI AERONAUTIC was released in state side that EVERYONE had it on their ride.
Honda, Nissan, VW....I mean EVERYONE.

If I remember correctly, they were available in either white or silver in U.S. but, different versions in Japan. (Hiroes Racing i SPEED)
After nearly 30 years, August 2014, I found this set on auction that I just had to get them for my current EP91.
Yes...100% impulse buying + little nostalgic moment here.

Thank you for your kind comment!
Just remove the shift boot and replace it with custom plate then, polish the shaft and install your favorite knob...done!
Nothing special, just be little creative!

...and here is old article of my old FD...good old days... ;)
http://www.superstreetonline.com/featur ... mport_car/

Many people thinks rotary is not reliable but, this 400hp + beast was my pure daily commuter that I had no issues during my ownership.
If I have an opportunity, I would love to have another Rotary, too.

My old FD3S before installing C-West Aero Kit.

Hello, sir. How has everything been with your machine?
Are you doing anything new with it lately?

I hope there are no clones!
I remember hearing on one of those TV shows about ghosts/demons that if you ever find your doppelganger (clone) when you see it, you die!

I wouldn't have been able to paint my wheels and then wait until spring. :lol: It'd be too tempting to get my car on its new shoes.

I know...so tempting...but, before I start using this set, I need to change it to my "winter set".
