Well, squall leonhart, that IS a pretty crappy picture of your nice looking car -

Don't be ah blaming it on your cell phone; most cell phones today have bigger pixel cameras than most cameras had a few short years back.

Yep, that gum is disgusting!

OEM mudguards are a good modification, I don't know about the JDM marker things -

Agreed on megapixels on cameras/phones. I am old enough that I used film before ever using digital cameras (and I still have a few Nikon SLRs and some 35mm film in the house). So I remember that digital cameras were worse than most phones these days, and that very good photos can come from phones. I think the first digital camera I used in the early 00's was 1.3mp. It did use an SD card though instead of a floppy disk, so it was pretty cutting edge.

My phone has a groundbreaking 5 megapixels (not that megapixels are a true representation of picture quality, but that's another subject) My calling it a crappy picture because I was in a hurry and snapped a couple pictures and didn't do much to compensate for the lighting to get a little more detail in the front end, and also that the car was pretty dusty that day, aside from having gum on it (that you can't see).

Incidentally, the reason I even stopped and took a picture of the FR-S was that I had just taken a picture of an old Subaru Brat sitting by the roadside. It reminded me of a thread on the JapaneseNostalgicCar.com forums and I took some pictures to post there. Now that it's not 8/6 day, here are pictures of it.

EDIT: pics resized.

OK.

Now that you have shown us you can take BIG pictures, I suggest that you cut them down before posting. Why? So we don't have to scroll half way across our desk to see all of your pictures and text. -

LOL, what can I say, I thought it would resize them and the "post preview" didn't show the pictures at all. I posted right before needing to leave for work. I'll try to get it edited soon. My apologies.

Pics resized. Seat cover picture added...who wouldn't want those in their TWIN?

The site will only re-size if you host the pics somewhere else.
If you attach them inside ft86club it thinks you meant to do it that way.

Thanks!

I had to contact "MAX ORIDO" directly, then I ended up purchasing through 86WORX.

Quite happy for now. I'm planning on getting the Verus duckbill after they update it.
