    Project: Ric's Gunmetal Carbon Ridox

    Hello all,

    So after regretting selling my 2 supra's i've owned before i decided to get back into supra ownership.

    I looked for a while for my next supra, never actually deciding on what i wanted, stock 6 speed gunmetal or perhaps something cheaper that i could make a project out of.

    In the end i found a bone stock (engine wise, only wheels exterior) TT aerotop in Red.

    I've always wanted a gunmetal coloured supra, so this is due to change.

    So, the car:

    Spec Before:

    Red
    Aerotop TT
    OEM Skirts
    OEM Spats
    Leather interior
    Active spoiler
    Jspec brakes
    Bilstein suspension
    Stock engine bay

    Plans so far:

    Full respray (glass out, inside etc) smoothed boot and wiper
    Ridox carbon body kit, with carbon un-painted
    CCW or SSR wheels (not decided which ones yet)
    Fully referbed interior, leather/diamond retrim
    Factory recaros
    Nurspec R exhaust
    BPU+
    Front mount intercooler

    In future:

    Single conversion (6-700 bhp)
    6 speed conversion.

    These plans will constantly change as my impulse buying and selling takes hold as they always have done.

    Latest picture


    some pics:



    Ignore the awful plate and wheels lol, they're not staying





    Nice little fibreglass box in the boot holding 2x 6" JL W3 subs.



    Spoiler fitted



    The carbon begins



    Got the carpet out, gave it a good wet vac ready for dye later.



    Stuck one of my new recaros in, as i need to be able to take it to the bodyshop.



    Already in bits removing the active spoiler and fitting my front mount intercooler ready for the bodyshop.


    More updates soon.

    Yeah I did, we will see, I'm confident.. the bodyshop isn't as much, but they've fitted 15k kits on Lamborghini Sv's so I'm confident a mint job will be done either way.

    Sound like a nice project in the making. Can I ask what bodyshop it is please ? I need to find one I can trust.

    Loving the carbon spliter, will you carry it through to the skirts or anywhere else on the supra other than the rear spoiler?
