    Michaels (CUSTARD) Supra Project TAKE 2 (new CCW's *** PIC HEAVY ***

    Hi all

    I thought i would do another thread for my car as i wanted fresh start due to all the problems i had with the other body shop, To cut a long story short for the people that don't know, the body shop mucked me around loads and had my car for a year and only fitted and blended the trail rear bumper and that was it!.

    I decided to take my car to Xquisite who are based in Croydon who do some great custom work, Really friendly people too !

    What im having done to the car

    DO-LUCK Front bumper
    TRAIL Rear bumper smoothed
    BLITZ Side Skirts smoothed
    TRD Spoiler with Carbon blade
    GANADOR Door Mirrors
    New FMIC
    Custom Bonnet Vents
    Tininted Windows
    Aerial removed and smoothed
    Internal aerial fitted to windscreen
    Rear wiper and jet removed and smoothed
    Arhces rolled
    Wheels spaced out
    Dash sprayed
    APR Carbon fibre radiator cooling plate
    Carbon Fuse box cover and other engine bling
    Paint Liquid Yellow

    I have LOADS of photos but i will trim them down and do them in order

    Enjoy

    Before the body shop







    New Intercooler on











    New Vents in the bonnet







    Side Skirts going on









    Front bumper modded for intercooler pipes

    Looking good, plenty of filler to be rubbed. Your arms must be like Popeye's.
    It might only be an N/A but i like it!

    Looking good. Did you pay that garage for any work done? How come you left them with it for a year??

    As above though, the seats look like they will take a lot of work to get looking good. You should have taken them out really before doing such extensive prep work.

    Being a yellow will it need to have quite a few coats of basecoat as yellow is pretty transparent?

    Loving the bodywork, the wheels are spot on and the colour is perfect

    Looking forward to the end result.

    Croydon, not too far from me. Will be interested in this thread as I may have to have them take up my car when the time comes. If you wouldn't mind, can you PM me with the total price for the entire job?

    The cars in there work shop was like a car show but i was not allowed to take photos for you guys due to a few of them were going to be featured in magazines
