i always see people asking for these, well i started my own project with a coupe bumper by cutting out the grill adding a mesh , then painted slap it on without getting a hood to match yet so here are the pics. also completed my s2000 retro with lexus yellow caps for high beams.

yeah, i know everyone is different and thats what makes it cool, when you are a car tech like me you can paint your car any color you want, when the cameleon color first wast introduce to the market thats when i got a sample but other than spending 2000 dollars just in paint i did the hood to try it out. thats about 5 yrs now, also my car already got key!!!!!!! + egg so thats why i havent painted back to black or paint my car complete since i am a head painter at a body shop :D .

Good techys have too much advantage in moddign cars... My imediate family and all my close friends are techys, but not me :(, though I got some DIY knowladge ;). Looks really good I think just the mesh where foglights are looks funny though it serves the purpose...Nice retro, looks like mine, though mine is all black housed, and I have bixenons.

Was the bumper a direct bolt on or did u have to mod it, and would the coupe hood be a direct bolt on? I love what u did to you car and yea ever one want to be unique but i still was gonna change it from what you got so dont think im tryin to copy off ur style, i just like the type r style.

the bumper was a direct bolt on, the coupe hood is also a direct bolt on just have to adjust you hood latch forward but that is better to do it at a body shop. i wouldnt be mad if you copy off my style since thats what pics are for :D to get ideas modd them ourselfs to our own taste.

I like it, very nice looking.
Your eye lids are the bolt ons? Or is it a vinyl strip you stick on?
