Default It's been too long: 240Z

It's been forever, and I started a new project. Hopefully I can finish this one, it'll be a challenge. Full rebrush/restoration, the very first time. Some c/p involved. This is the very early stage and I'm taking my time to get it down properly. C&C as always.

I love the Old-School + New school JDM.

Orig:

WIP1: 12/19

WIP2: 12/20

WIP3: 12/20

Got to working on brushing the body. Comments?
WIP4: 12/21
Redid side skirts, [still have some lighting to do], reworked lighting on fenders. Planning on rebrushing the rear bumper as well. Threw some blades on too.

WIP5: 12/22
Finished rear bumper. Exhaust coming soon, probably keeping those wheels.

WIP6: 12/22
Started working on the side, brushed some interior bits.


WIP7: 12/23
Added exhaust outlet, fixed window lighting, can I get some pointers on the side lighting?

I'm gonna keep messing with the driver's side, it's a little frustrating. It's 3am here so I'm just gonna watch Chris Rock.

WIP8: 12/23
Finished exhaust and worked on the side some more. Will start on roof soon.


**NEARLY DONE**
WIP9: 12/24
Brushed roof area. Next up: modify/replace rims, background(?), random stuff.

Thanks for looking, post comments, and I'll post updates.

**ALMOST THERE**
WIP10: 12/24
Background, reflections draft. Deep dish rims and random cleanup.


**99%**
12/26

Well, I think I am finished. Soon enough, I will be posting it in the "Auto Chops" section. Thank you all who have given me feedback. (NOT Wildman haha). It was a big project and seemed daunting at first but just pick the brush up and get to it!

**Note: All of these are resized images. Full res sizes clear 2000+px

Thanks Mike,

the hatch was from a rebrushed donor. The hood and hatch have been brushed and so has the glass.

Get on AIM.

Edit: More comments? Wildman, Carty, where'd you bastards go?

Thanks Ace. Yes it is, and I am doing a little bit of work to the rear, my aim was an Origin-style body kit. I like simplicity and this is my first one.

Cheers!

Thanks.

I couldn't tell you. That was probably ~2.5hrs including ideas, donoring, and design. I don't count hours, I count days . Perhaps another update will go up later tonight.

I did it mostly by eye, except for the front fender which i c/p'd from a similar donor and then outlined.

Edit: UPDATE (top post)! I'm not too sure about the taillights, if anyone could give me some pointers, that'd be appreciated
Edit 2: Second update for tonight!

Its probably just me but those wheels look a little out? Either slightly of angle or not in under the gaurds enough or something,I cant quite pinpoint it. Oh and thanks for your opinions moncef .

Well, both were done on purpose. "Off angle" is the negative camber, which is used on drift cars. The not being under the fenders enough is because of preference as well. Having proper wheel fitment means having the tire/wheel flush with the fenders, not sunken or poking . No problem by the way. Your work shows promise.

Thanks, I've made a bit of progress, an update will be going up soon!

I wasnt talking bout the camber thats fine, I thought the back wheel looked a bit turned in, like 4 wheel steering imo, thats all.

Ahh okay. Hmm I don't seem to notice that, but thanks for pointing it out. I might be tweaking the wheels after brushing is complete.

Edit: UPDATE!
