Supercharged Rocket Bunny Widebody Conversion Build Thread Countdown to SEMA 2012

Hey guys just wanted to introduce myself. Just picked up a Hot Lava Orange Scion FRS last Friday at Norwalk Scion. We choose the loudest color Scion offered for this SEMA project. Here is picture of the car when we picked it up. We will be posting video and pictures on ClubFT86 as we start the transformation from stock to modded. The car will make its debut at the SEMA 2012 show in the Forgestar booth.

Cars I have built in the past

The body kit was just placed and will ship end of august. At this time we are still working with different manufactures to supply parts for this vehicle.

Current Partners

BASF Chemicals
Takata Racing
Auto Talent
Rocket Bunny
Vortech Superchargers
CKS Coilover Suspension
Exotic Air
Whiteline Performance Suspension
Stoptech Brakes
The Retrofit Source
Forgestar Wheels
Toyo Tires


STOCK


GOAL

Not a fan of the rivets (at least conceal them better). But as far as widebody kits, I like the shape/fenders.

Yes the exposed rivets is not for everyone. We are debating of just blending them in or leaving them exposed. That design idea is still up in the air.

You will be able to order direct through Greddy right around SEMA time. Give Greddy a call. We are getting one of the first ones in the country to prep the car for the SEMA show and the show scene after.

It looks a tad... thrown together. Its not aggressive enough for the exposed rivets and the lines are all off. The rear quarter panel piece should at the very least cover the hump and flow to the rear. The front fender piece looks peculiar stopping in the middle of the front bumper, it should extend down and flow into to the front lip spoiler. The fender badge area looks barren and blank without a badge, or trim piece, or vent, or something other than just a depression in the fender. This car looks great because the front flows to the rear, uninterupted lines. Fluid lines from front to rear keep your eyes moving over the length of the car. Its good for a rough draft, but i wouldnt put it on my car unless i was trying to hide rear-quarter panel damage.

Thanks. I have not built a JDM car since the NSX, so I am quite excited to build one again.
