It's a surprisingly good fit for a kit, wish the kit on mine fit as well :(

Good to see it'll be revived instead of sent to the bin! When you go to paint it, tell me so I can come watch and maybe lend a hand ;)

Just a suggestion, but why not get the twincam 16valve stickers (off the quarterpanel\door) redone in a lighter shade of whatever colour you paint the car, a subtle contrast :)
I can help with this if you need the stickers made or the font file
Excellent to see you repaired the kit instead of just covering it in bodyfiller =D>
Id add also to put a sheet of acrylic under the lip of the frontbar, to make an undertray to the radiator support, that frontbar catches the airflow (rayvens car used to get blown around the road in a crosswind) improve the aerodynamics the easy way
Keep up the good work mate :) looking good so far

That rear bar and front bar need to have something done to then to give then a more updated look far to bland for my tastes.

Rear splitter add on and new grill from a GTR or WRX would be a good start.

Amen to that. They didnt have kids in the fast and the furious :lol: else im sure theyd have spent the length of the movie finishing the 10 second car.
Family + Car hobby...its a blessing to have both (although it takes longer to build a car when you have other priorities)
=D> Wish id have grown up in a car building family at least my kids (and yours) will enjoy it as I didnt get to (providing of course they like cars)

Will your paint be a custom mix, or is it a factory pick (im trying to picture how it will look)

the paint is a mis match i picked up with hardner for $170 6.5l of paint.... Was going to cost the same amount to match the red on the car.
The pearl was $20 for a 50gram bag
As soon as a paint some parts i will throw up some pics

I was surfin round the internet and got a look at this project. Funny to see my own project car here!
I'm from the Netherlands and the swift with the diffussor is my project. I will create my own built page soon.

More pics of how I made the diffussor can be found here: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3179677/1995-suzuki-swift/page-7
The base diffussor was from an Seat Leon.
